Christmas can be a really great time to score some preps as gifts (if you’re looking for ideas, just check here). This year I was lucky enough to get a couple of really cool preps on the list of things I’d been wanting!

The Backyard Homestead by Carleen Madigan

This is a book I’ve wanted for a long time (ever since my good friend Liberty N Justice recommended it to me). Although I haven’t really dug into it yet, I’m really excited to.

Why?

It systematically teaches you how to produce all the food you need on just a quarter of an acre (but has site layouts for lots as small as 1/10th of an acre!). With topics ranging from herb gardening, vegetables, food preservation, livestock, grains, beekeeping (super important), butchering and so much more.

There will definitely be a complete and thorough review coming soon after I finish it, but if it already sounds interesting-don’t wait!

IronKey secure USB drive

The second prep that I got an am excited about is an IronKey secure USB drive. You guys have heard me mention these before, but I still hadn’t picked one up yet (they’re kinda expensive at around $100).

So you can imagine I was pretty stoked to see that Santa had gotten one for me.

The IronKey drive is waterproof, shockproof and utilizes military grade encryption to keep your files safe. I use USB drives to store all my sensitive info right on my keychain as part of my EDC.
