Hand ToolsIn a doomsday survival scenario, you won’t be able to go down to your local hardware store and buy the things that you are in need of.

Many have given up landline phones altogether and simply use their cell phone as their main source of communication.

I have to admit that we don’t have many corded telephones in our house either but we do have a couple and in a minute I’m going to tell you why you should too.

If you’re a prepper, you’re most likely preparing for a day when civilization will break down due to a major natural disaster or a number of other reasons.
