Survival Prepping For Beginners – 3 Easy Steps

Are you beginning to start your prepping journey? Perhaps you feel stuck on how to start prepping? Maybe you want to know about the steps you can take to becoming more prepared.

If so, this article is for you!

As fellow preppers here at Doomsday is Near, we understand that the first steps of prepping and survival preparedness can be a daunting one; especially for beginners. However, at the end of reading this article, hopefully you will feel more relaxed (and prepared) than before!

To find out the 3 easy steps of survival prepping for beginners, read on! 🙂

1. Fill Up Your Bug Out Bag!

One of the most important steps you can take (if you haven’t already), is purchasing  the most essential survival items for your bug out bag. Make sure that you have important items needed to survive in the wilderness when an emergency situation arises.

————–The Ultimate Survival Supplies Checklist————–

You can print it and check items off as you go along. This will enable you to ensure that your bug out bag has all of the essential items.

What if you don’t already have a bug out bag to fill your prepping items? No worries! We have selected the best survival bags for you to choose from below. Any of these bags will be suitable for your wilderness needs and the third bug out bag below already has the survival items you need – it is supplied with the bag!

2. Network Online With Fellow Preppers

Network with fellow preppers to enhance your skills and knowledge of prepping. There are many survival forums online through which you can connect with like minded people; some of which who are also in the same boat as you.

Use forums as a way to build your connections and to increase your prepping confidence; if you need it! Some people find it very helpful to connect with like minded individuals to discuss their prepping plans.

There are many ways to connect with survivalists. Here are just a few examples you can feel free to check out:

Forum #1

Forum #2

Forum #3

There are plenty more forums and networking sites that can be found via Google, so those are just a few examples you can get started with.

Everyone starts from the beginning once, so feel free to contact members and ask questions, or just get to know them. This also includes me! 🙂

Networking is a great tool which is likely to make you feel more comfortable in your journey of survival prepardness. I say this because social inclusion and networking with fellow Preppers help give you a sense of foundation and support.

3. Understand Why You Are Prepping

Understanding the importance of prepping will help you on your prepping path as doubts may ponder your mind.

The way to solve this is to get a hold of books/information which will widen your scope of knowledge and prepping intuition.

There is a LOT of misinformation when it comes to Doomsday and its effects.

People assume that Doomsday will literally mean the end of the world. However, this is false! What Doomsday will unleash is the New World Order which will entail apocalyptic destruction but NOT the end of the world.

—————Will There Be A World War 3?—————-

Books are amazing tools to open our eyes and to put into perspective why people are prepping. It can be easy for beginner survivalists to doubt whether their prepping efforts are worth it. However, when you delve into the real TRUTH on how the world really works and the hidden world agendas make things a LOT clearer. In turn, your passion for prepardness increases and so does your curiosity to broaden your knowledge.

For example, after reading Survive the End Times, it really opened my eyes to the significant developments of EMP and its damaging effects.

———Read My Survive The End Times Review Here!——–

By becoming aware of what is going on behind closed doors in the world, we are becoming more prepared for future developments.

Another example is the fact that martial law is a massive and viable future aim. One only needs to read about the New World Order to understand that it is all planned by the government and they are expecting people to be blind sheep when their destructive cards are dealt.

One of my FAVORITE books which amazingly changed the way I perceived the world is  Ruiter, R. The 13 Satanic Bloodlines: Paving The Road To Hell, Mayan Publications. I truly recommend reading it and hail it as a revolutionary guide which will open your third eye. You will find it hard putting the book down after reading the first page!

If you have any questions about these tips or methods please feel free to drop me a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible 🙂

Happy prepping!

Excellent post!

I’ve felt like the end is near for quite some time. I don’t know when it will happen. Or if it will happen in my lifetime. I’m 37 now and each passing year I’ve felt more and more strongly that something major is going to happen fairly soon. I need to get my act together and start getting ready. I don’t want to wait until the last minute, when the world delves into chaos.

The article was definitely thought provoking.

I did sign up for your email list also.

Keep up the good work!


Thanks for posting this. We need to be prepared, by hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

I’ve already started printing out PDF’s from these forums. Which is your favorite? I just registered for Doomsday prepper forums.

The information can be a bit overwhelming, so I’m trying to get organized with the basics.



Wow! I have good news for you! First, I never heard of preppers or prepping. I do believe what the Bible says about the one world order, but understand that it will take place after Christ raptures the church. It’ll happen during the 7 year Tribulation. Therefore, if your heart is right with God and you have made Christ the Lord of your life, you will be out of here before all hell is unleashed upon the earth. The Antichrist, the false prophet, and Satan will form the unholy trinity and together will rule during the 7 year Tribulation. But… Read more »



It’s interesting, I started reading about this sort of thing back in 2007/8 around the last financial crash and people were talking and vlogging about “just in case” preparations for WROL (without rule of law) scenarios. Hurricane Katrina was one such case for the poor folks in New Orleans, which goes to show problems might not be national or international for a bug out bag and a network of friends and relatives in different locations to become critical.

How does the saying go? “Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.” Anyway, have a good day and stay safe.


I wonder how people get fanatical about doomsday prepping. I understand it is always a possibility that the worse will happen, but I rather focus on the good things in life rather than the negatives.

I’d imagine you are largely involved in this sort of cult deal. Have you set up your own fortified castle or bunker yet?

How long do you expect until WW3 strikes or an alien invasion?
