In order to do that you need to be sure to stock up on food supplies. You also have to be sure to develop a set of necessary skills that will carry you through a disaster situation. Some skills are there to create just a little bit more convenience. Other skills, however, are absolutely essential and are the only thing that will stand between you and certain death. Here are two of the most important survival skills that you can develop as a prepper and why you absolutely need them.

Properly Building a Fire

One of the most important skills that anyone should able to learn, prepper or otherwise, is that of building a proper fire. That does not mean that you should only be able to start a fire with two sticks. It means that you should know how to choose the right kind of wood for your fire as well as knowing how to properly structure the wood pile so that it burns better and longer. It does not matter how big the fire you make is if it burns out in less than an hour. These are the kinds of firestarting skills you need to have. You can read more about firestarting.

It may be unpleasant to think about, but if you do not know how to properly handle a weapon during a disaster then you are setting yourself up for some serious danger. Whether you decide to learn how to use a gun, crossbow, or any other number of possible weapons you absolutely need to develop mastery at defending yourself. It is also important that you learn how to use a weapon for hunting. You can learn more about crossbows at Patriots closet.

Where can I get a quickzip crib sheet?

Shopping is always fun. Especially when you are shopping for things that could potentially make your life so much easier. For example, I love to look for kitchen stuff! Each new kitchen item I get makes my cooking or cleaning up experience is so much better.

That is why when I heard about the quickzip crib sheet, I knew I just had to get it. It was defiantly something thatĀ  makes adults and babies happy.

I know that it makes me very happy! It has made my life so much simpler since I have gotten the quickzip crib sheet. I no longer have to fight to get the mattress out of the crib to change the sheet. Now when I want or need to change the sheet on my child’s crib, I just simply unzip the sheet that is already on the mattress and zip the new one on. It really is that simple.

And it is defiantly something that I would suggest that anyone that has a baby or will soon have a baby get. You can get them by getting online and visiting places like Sunflower Press.

There are also a ton of other places that you can visit to get a quickzip crib sheet. However, I would suggest that you get one from the sight I just listed before you look anywhere else. They have the best prices that I have seen so far!

What are some pros and cons of stainless steel cookware?

What are some pros and cons of stainless steel cookware?

Stainless steel cookware is now one of the hottest cookware sets on the market. People all over are spending their money on stainless steel cookware sets.

So it makes sense that everyone is wanting to know all the good and bad things about getting a stainless steel cookware set. So I am going to tell you a few stainless steel cookware pros and cons.


Stainless steel cookware is super easy to clean. You don’t have to worry about having to scrub really hard in order to clean your cookware as long as it is stainless steel.

Another pro about having a stainless steel cookware set is that food does not stick to the stainless steel easily. I have a stainless steel baking sheet and I have never had a cookie stick to the bottom of the baking sheet. And that is without me having to pray it with cooking spray before placing the cookies on it.


There are not many bad things that can be said about stainless steel. Actually, there is only one thing that comes to mind when I think about the reasons why I should not purchase a stainless steel cookware set. And that is the fact that stainless steel cookware can be a little on the expensive side.

It is a little bit more pricey than cookware that you would get from places like Walmart. However, stainless steel cookware does last a lot longer and is made with better quality than other cookware sets.

So, if you are considering getting a stainless steel cookware set and price is really not an issue, then I suggest that you get a stainless steel cookware set from a place like Steel Cookin. They give you a variety of different stainless steel cookware options to choose from. That way you can be sure that you are choosing the best stainless steel cookware set for you!

Review of the Firefly 2

Review of the Firefly 2


The world of vaporizers is one that has only really been prominent for a few years now. When vaporizers were first introduced to the market there were many people who thought they would be little more than a passing fad which would be quickly and quietly forgotten. This was not the case at all as vaporizers have grown to incredible heights in terms of popularity. It can even be said that the community of people who use vaporizers has become its own little subculture. In that subculture one of the most respected vaporizers on the market is that of the Firefly vaporizer.

The Firefly vaporizer is one of the most popular portable vaporizers on the market, even several years after its introduction. You can read more about how incredibly popular it was but the real kicker was how powerful it was compared to the other portable vaporizers that were on the market at that time. It was one of the first vaporizers to offer up all of the power and performance of a desktop vaporizer while still having all of the convenience of a portable vaporizer. Now there is a new model available, the Firefly 2. Here is how the Firefly 2 stacks up to the original model.

New and Improved Body

The body of the original Firefly is one of the best designed of any portable vaporizer on the market. There are a lot of portable vaporizers that just look like a menagerie of parts but the Firefly looked like one solid piece. It was stylish, sleek, and functional. However, it did have some problems in terms of actual function. First of all it was heavier than most portables, which made carrying it around in one’s pocket fairly difficult. It was also a little bit too bulky which made actually getting it into a pocket to be problematic.

The Firefly 2 fixes all of those problems. The first thing that needs to be said is that the body is actually one third smaller than the original model. This means fitting it into your pocket is a much more manageable task than before. It is also up to fifty percent less heavy than the previous model. This is all thanks to its brand new magnesium alloy body which allows for the body to be smaller and lighter without sacrificing performance and functionality. It is, quite simply, a massive improvement to an already amazingly designed body.

Easier to Clean

The biggest problem with most portable vaporizers on the market, especially the pen style vaporizers, is that they are such a pain to try and keep clean. This is because they have so many different small components such as screens that you have to be very careful and delicate with. Otherwise you run the risk of breaking them. If you do not have your warranty then that means you could end up having to spend more money replacing parts or the entire vaporizer. This can all add up to be a very expensive problem in the long run.

The Firefly 2, on the other hand, is a much simpler vaporizer to have to clean because it does not have any of the smaller components. It does not have the screen. It simply needs to be cleaned with a cleaning cloth and some isopropyl alcohol. You simply dab the cloth with the alcohol and give the vaporizer a very thorough wiping down. This is all thanks to the fact that the Firefly 2 is a very sleek and simple design without any of the overly complicated components that you will see on other portable vaporizers.

The Firefly 2 is the kind of improvement that any company would want to see with their sophomore release. It completely breaks the curse of the sophomore slump and proves that the Firefly team is serious about putting out a quality product instead of simply trying to cash in on something that they falsely perceive to be a fad. If you are curious about vaporizers and are unsure of which one to try then the Firefly 2 is definitely worth the consideration. It is an absolute powerhouse of performance that will amaze you. You will not regret trying it.

Should You Buy A Home Mold Testing Kit

Should You Buy A Home Mold Testing Kit


Ok, are you wondering whether you might have mold growing in your house? You don’t necessarily have to panic if you do because almost every home has a little mold of some kind. However, the issue can be how much mold and what kind it is. Before you call in a professional to answer this question for you, why not buy your own home mold testing kit and find out if you should worry or not before spending a lot more money?

If you answer yes to any of the questions below, you should get a mold testing kit:

Have you already saw evidence of mold or have had recent water leaks of any kind?

Have you noticed damp or musty odors coming from certain rooms in the home, in your attic or crawlspace even though you have not found any leaks or water damage?

Has there been a lot of unexplained cold like symptoms or rashes in any family members or pets in the home?

Do you have a pregnant woman, small children or anyone with a compromised immune system in the home?

Why You Must Test

All of the things above are valid reasons to test your your home for mold. Even a small amount of mold can cause health issues in many people. Also, once mold has caused damage in your home, it can be expensive to removed. Black mold can literally destroy the value of your home if it gets really out of hand. An inexpensive test kit can set your mind at ease in determining whether or not mold is present and what kind of mold it is when you buy the right kit. If you want to know where to buy black mold test kits you can look online or check with your local department store.

Find the Test For You

Since there are many types of mold, you need to get a general idea of which kit is right for you. If you want to do a thorough job, you may need more than one type of kit. There are kits that are used to test surfaces by swabbing dust and then following the remaining instructions. There are test kits that detect spores and allergy-causing mold-particulates in the air of your home, even stachybotrys that can be missed sometimes with some air kits. Certain kits can provide you with almost instant results at home and some kits are connected with laboratories and you will have to mail in the samples you collect and wait for a result.

It is very important that you follow all directions that come with your kit or kits regardless of which ones you choose to go with. Not following directions carefully may result in getting an inaccurate or false reading.

Even if you are only suspicious that there might be mold in your home, it is important to do the testing.

Hidden mold can be the worst kind, especially if it’s black mold. If you were to find black mold is present, then you could end up having to call a water damage expert anyway, but why not make sure you need to first?There is no sense in calling in a pro right away and spend more money than necessary when a less expensive home mold testing kit can give you the answers you need.
