Prepper News Watch for July 9, 2014

Prepper News Watch

Be sure to check out my latest podcast, Episode 229 – Have You Reached Peak Prepping Stress, where I discuss some of the issues that may be adding to your preparedness stress levels.

Also, I have a new article up on The Survival Mom website, Preparedness Uses for Coffee Filters? , where I test coffee filters and their efficacy in preparedness tasks. You might be surprised to find out that they aren’t as good of a prepping item as you may think they would be.
