Been working with my kids to make a workbench , or TWO actually.

Dont know if that counts as preparednbess, but I figure a workbennch or two are an asset in a survival situation. Much better than working on the floor. he-he he-he he-he

The workbench is made from unused wooden junk. I have a dozen thrown away drawers plus a few double thickness sheets of wood from old beds. These sheets will be the table tops, and the drwers (standing up) will be the bench 'legs'. I know the bench will be very short that way. But I may use while sitting, or maybe I'll put on bench on top of the other. Well see how it turns out.

If I put the two benches side by side we will have about six feet of bench. Also in that case (low banch), my "McGyver-type" kid can also use it comfortably.

The other, non McGyver kid is taller than dad but well, he never shown any interest in hummers and screwdrivers.

Bought a couple of Petzl e+LITEs. Ordered some heatsheet bivies, and started my Eneloop stockpiling project. Bought several packs of playing cards.

Bought some inexpensive knives at the ragweedforge to beat on. I want to work up some inexpensive car kits to give to friends/family.

Another way to have fun, and get inexpensive blades at the same time, is to go here, they have finished blades that you add your own handle material to. They have a new paper catalog that has more blades than the website shows, but you will get an idea...

If you pop five bucks for their paper catalog you will see a lot more blades. They recently merged (bought out?) another company, resulting in a whole new selection of goodies...

Bought a case of water for my apartment. On the 9th floor, if we lose pressure, water isn't easy to come by,

Added some cash to my emergency stash.
