    Excellent points and great explanation. I didn’t have life insurance until after 911, when I worked at the pentagon & I was primary breadwinner. When I retired I lowered it to burial insurance. My homeowners insurance has been great at paying for catastrophes.

    Great video. People used to always live prepared. I just read that in 1800, 2/3 of all jobs in the US were agricultural. Now it’s 2/3 of 1%. People were closer to the seasons and what food was available and when. It was just common sense to put by the harvest or sale items or if someone dumped a bushel of apples on you. No one turned down food or supplies.

    But cities and TV turned people into consumers rather than producers. The American Dream was no longer about making a life but purchasing the life you wanted. We had to have “earning potential” so we could have “purchasing power”.

    Naturally then you don’t want to lose that! And that’s the fear. Even without political or corporate upheaval, people are afraid to lose their little piece of that pie. Too few people know how to bake their own pie anymore.

    Everything Heidi said is all that common sense just coming back.

    I do have house insurance I don’t want because my husband has chronic fatigue and already feels like he can’t provide the way he wants to and with our age and his condition, we couldn’t fix our own home if something major happened. Yes, it might be something they don’t pay on, but it makes him feel more secure to have even a potential back-up and so I do it for him. But I do it by choice. I have never had house insurance in my life before this. (We’ve only been married a decade and in this house 6 years.)

    But see, that’s where being a housewife and money manager also comes in because I save money elsewhere so it’s not too much of a burden to do this for him on our low income. I hate spending on it but I do it for him.

    And that’s something people also have little knowledge of anymore: how to live at home, be home people, take care of a home, budget, cook, etc. If they knew these things, they’d be less afraid of what can happen because it would already be part of their life to some extent to prepare for the rainy day.

    I do not share my videos here often as to not make people feel bombarded by them but when I feel they are important enough, I do so I was coming in here to do that very thing and there it is. Saved me a step! haha!

    Yeah it hit home with me, and People are more active here than rumble, so I thought sharing would spark more discussion. And I am glad it has.

    This is a great topic.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this video (then again, I enjoy most of Heidi’s videos!). When she mentioned collecting fabric and yarn. I almost laughed out loud! I have been told that I have a problem! However, it is satisfying to go to my “stash” to choose a fabric or yarn to make something. Knowing that I found so much of it at yard/garage sales, secondhand stores or it was given to me.
