One thing in the article that really stuck out was, “Prepper Pinterest has exploded in the past year, according to the site itself: The total volume of prepper pins is up 87 percent, and repins of prepping posts have nearly tripled.” That is a huge number. Pinterest used to be pinning pretty pictures or whatever, I never understood the point but I will admit there is some great information on Pinterest. As I have moved along on my survival/prepper journey I have moved more and more towards the self-reliance aspect. At times I get quite disgusted by the materialistic side of "survival". Too often I see people plunking down the money, failing to stop first and think, "Can I make this?" Whether you use Pinterest or not, it is an interesting article. I don't care whether you have Pinterest or not, what is the article saying to you? I see a growing trend, self-reliance & a return to basics.
