The Five B's are Beans, Bullets, Band-aids, Bullion, and Books"

Although traditionally it is listed as Beans, Bullets, Band-aids, really the more complete list one should use is Beans, Bullets, Band-aids, Bullion, Books

We could add to that the sixth “B” of Batteries (electrical power via 12 V batteries, rechargeable batteries, generator and solar power and fuel like propane, kerosene, Coleman fuel, firewood, diesel, biodiesel, gasoline, and motor oil);

the seventh “B” of Brotherhood meaning Family, Extended Family, Survival Community, Patriotism (Prepper Patriot) for America, All living beings – which is why we are even interested in preparing for disasters, preparedness and survival using the Beans, Bullets, Band-aids, Bullion, Books, Batteries, Brotherhood, Being.

and the eighth “B” of Being means “Just Be” - “Accept everything with ease and let go completely”, means Survival Psychology, Acceptance. The eighth “B” of Being most importantly implies the Faith that teaches us compassion and wisdom virtues such as generosity, morality, and the loving kindness-friendliness], sympathetic joy and letting go-renunciation-detachment-equanimity]] that we get from practicing patience, perseverance-vigor-steadfastness, prayer-contemplation-meditation, developing wisdom, being skillful-expedient, making an keeping our word-commitment-vows and understanding interdependence and cause and effect.

The three Bs: “Beans, Bullets, and Band-aids”. This is a great way to summarize necessities of survival and for the fear of becoming the 20 “Bs” of survival or the 30 “Bs” of survival, it should probably remain the three Bs. However, one can see the use of the five Bs of survival being closer to my mentality: Beans, Bullets, Band-Aids, Bullion, and Books


1. Beans

Beans means Water and Food, which is helped if you know Permaculture.

2. Bullets

Never enough Ammo, but the most important point is to stay within your budget. Some people put guns and ammo way too far in front of other preps.

3. Band-Aids
4. Bullion
5. Books
6. Batteries

We could add the previous five survival practice categories the sixth “B” of Batteries.

This means power and energy to support technology. In other words electrical power via 12 V batteries, rechargeable batteries (AA batteries, AAA batteries, C batteries, and D batteries to store electricity.

It means generate electricity using, in the short, a generator and, in the long term, solar power. If certain rare cases it means micro-hydroelectric power. If you live in Alaska it could mean wind power, but in the lower 48 states, solar is most affordable now that it is less than $1.00 per watt to buy solar panels.

The other key form of energy is fuel like propane, kerosene, Coleman fuel, firewood, diesel, biodiesel, gasoline, and motor oil) for survival cooking, heating, cooling, refrigeration and for our pickup trucks, 4WDs, SUVs, survival vehicles, Bugout Vehicles (BOV) and other transportation.


7. Brotherhood
8. Being

The eighth “B” of Being means “Just Be”. In other words, “Whether times get tough, or even if they don't”, in order to survive and thrive, doom and bloom rather than doom and gloom – to be happy we must learn to “Accept everything with ease and let go completely”. We could restate Being as 1. Stay busy (preparing and working), 2. Don't hurry (be patient), 3. Don't worry (trust life, In God We Trust), 4. Be Happy. Being implies Survival Psychology, and Acceptance.

The eighth “B” of Being most importantly points to a deeper Faith that teaches us compassion and wisdom virtues.

These survival virtues include 1. generosity, 2. morality, and the loving kindness-friendliness], sympathetic joy and letting go-renunciation-detachment-equanimity]] that we get when we practice 3. patience-forbearance, 4. perseverance-vigor-steadfastness, 5. prayer-contemplation-meditation, 6. developing wisdom, 7. being skillful-expedient, 8. making and keeping our word-commitment-vows (being a “Man of His Word”) and understanding interdependence (between people, animals and events) and cause and effect which gives us a 9. spiritual power or fortitude to make the best out of any situation good or bad.
