About Us

One Day Prepper is a web site created by Street Smarts Survival. We felt that the activity of Prepping is not for everyone.  Let’s face it, not only can it be very expensive buying products and gadgets that you may never use, but it takes a lot of time to prep.

So this site is for you if you are simply a busy person who has no interest or time to be a Prepper(From Dictionary.com: A Prepper is someone who actively prepares (preps) for worst-case scenarios, such as the end of the world, by practicing survivalist techniques, including hoarding food).

Some folks love being a Prepper.  They feel they can go to bed at night knowing they are fully prepared for every type of disaster possible, from natural disasters to man made disasters such as EMP’s (Electro Magnetic Pulse Attacks) and civil unrest (think self-defense). Many Preppers also love the sense of community they feel with other Preppers.  There is a broad range of Prepper types as well. You can be a Prepper and also a Homesteader, a Forager, or a hard core Survivalist, to name a few.  Or you can simply be an average Joe or Jane, a Mom, a Dad, etc.

But what if you couldn’t care less about Prepping as an activity.  You just want to make sure you and your loved ones are safe and ready to take on the most obvious disaster scenarios, like vehicle breakdowns, hurricanes, snow storms and wildfires.  Then the One Day Prepper site might be a helpful partner for you.   

Using a list of items to buy, a few good simple and to-the-point books to read, and a conversation with your family,  you will be ready for most common disasters.  And yes, you will feel as good as a traditional Prepper.  Why?  Because you did something.  You educated yourself, you are prepared, and with a lot less stress. 

So, should you make your own Pemmican (a type of long term survival food) or just buy some vitamin packed protein bars?  Well, the choice is yours (I do think the protein bars will taste better though). 

Thanks for stopping by, and check out our other site Street Smarts Survival for even more information about Prepping.
