The latest edition of The Preparedness Review is hot off the press and once again, it is a free download!
The Fall 2013 issue of TPR is over 90 pages long and contains 17 must-read articles on preparedness. There is truly something for everyone. Not only that, I am thrilled that my article, “The Preppers Guide to Better, Safer, Cheaper Cleaning” is the lead article. This is a brand new article with new material written especially for The Preparedness Review.
Here is a list of the articles and their authors – a virtual who’s who of preparedness.

The Fall 2013 Preparedness Review is free for everyone. I recommend that you download a copy and save it to your hard drive and your tablet (if you have one) and also that you print a copy for use when the grid is down.

Bargain Bin: Below you will find some items that are popular favorites with Backdoor Survival readers, including items in the current Amazon Top 10.
Morakniv Craftline Q Allround Fixed Blade Utility Knife: Also known as the Mora 511, this is now my favorite knife. It is made of Swedish steel and is super sharp. I paid $12 for this knife last week and today it is $8.95 so I ordered another one. It was worth $12 and of course is a steal at $8.95!
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter: The LifeStraw is considered the most advanced, compact, ultra light personal water filter available. It contains no chemicals or iodinated resin, no batteries and no moving parts to break or wear out. It weighs only 2oz. making it perfect for the prepper. For more information, see my LifeStraw review.
Magnesium Fire Starter: This Campers’ Magnesium Emergency Fire Starter is about $4.
UCO Stormproof Match Kit with Waterproof Case, 25 Stormproof Matches and 3 Strikers: The UCO Stormproof Match Kit is waterproof and holds 25 matches as well as spare strikers. The matches burn for around 15 seconds and are windproof, waterproof, and even continue burning underwater. An integrated striker is attached on the side of the match kit, and can be replaced when worn out.
2 Pack Survival Kit Can Opener, Military, P-51 Model: These can openers makes great addition to any survival, fishing, hiking, or camping pack. They are lightweight and robust and they just work.
Rothco 550lb. Type III Nylon Paracord: An ideal all-around utility cord in the field, paracord is tough and long lasting. It is made from 550-pound test nylon and features a seven-strand core for maximum strength. Also, it is manufactured in the United States. Note that some colors may be more expensive than others.

The monthly specials at Emergency Essentials feature discounts of up to 35% off sometimes a bit more.
This month, the Tote-able Toilet with 2 Enzyme Packets is on sale for $14.95. I priced purchasing the bucket and toilet seat lid separately and found that it was more economical to pick up this kit. I am planning to fill the bucket with other sanitation supplies plus, of course, plenty of TP.
You might also like Mobile Washer. This is hand operated washing machine. Like a plunger, it uses a technique of pushing and pulling the water through clothes to clean them well without wearing them out. It uses a minimum of water and less soap due to the agitation motion. Use in a bucket (5-gallon suggested), sink or tub. The best part is that it is only $14.95.
These are just two of the items on sale this month at Emergency Essentials. Click on the link below for more great deals from Emergency Essentials.
