#SurvivalTip 26 – A good, easy read for understanding economics is “Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?” by Richard J. Maybury.  

#SurvivalTip 27 – Homesteading at a remote rural location is many folks idea of prepping, but there are other ways. Don't fall for the idea that there is a single correct way for everyone.  

#SurvivalTip 28 –  On prescription medications? Work with your doctor to acquire a 60 or 90 day supply, rather than typical 30 days.  

#SurvivalTip 29 – Think safety. Keep fresh batteries in your smoke detectors. Also, have a fire extinguisher or two, and know how to use them.

#SurvivalTip 34 – Think safety. No horseplay in the workshop or when using power tools of any kind. 
#SurvivalTip 35 – Everyone in your family/group should take a good, age-appropriate self-defense course.
#SurvivalTip 36 – A good self-defense course won't just cover self-defense, but also give information on avoiding dangerous situations in the first place.  

#SurvivalTip 37 – Avoid dangerous neighborhoods and sections of town. Do you even know what sections are dangerous in your area? Find out.   

#SurvivalTip 38 – Travel, walk, shop in groups whenever possible. Let someone know where you're going and when to expect you back. Stick to that schedule.

#SurvivalTip 43 – Before getting out of a car or walking out of a building, look out a window first to identify possible dangers.
