Glad she's giving you ideas.  That's also teamwork.

Yes, women think along different lines. When men think of survival food they think MRE. When women think of survival food they think what can the baby eat and what will the 4 yr. old eat, is Daddy getting enough vegetables, how do I keep food from spoiling, what is giving the 7 yr. old tummy aches, good grief Tommy won't eat anything without bar-b-q sauce, etc.
I suppose to some, the idea just scares them too much because the same thought processes include all the logistics of keeping the living space clean, laundry, schooling, entertaining grumpy children, etc. From a woman's point of view it's a daunting project. She sees herself managing ALL of this while the guys collect guns, and talk guns, and practice with guns, admire each others' guns and buy more guns.

I grew up around military men, so I had never even thought there was a different perspective when it came to prepping before reading what the other ladies posted haha.

I was raised camping and took survival courses and such in cadets. Occasionally I go out and brush up on my skills, like plant identification, but I think my "perspective" has been warped by training unfortunately.

As far as couples being on a separate page, sometimes neither of you are preppers and someone is converted along the way. Neither of us were when we got together and often our idea of being prepared is a bit different but at least we're mostly on the same page.

Ways I prepare:
When I go shopping I always by extra to put away in the pantry.
I train weekly if not more.
I read books, watch videos and listen to podcast to further my education.
I educate my children on why we prep and talk about why we store food.
I continue to help others that are getting into prepping.
I work to make our home more self sufficient.
I do a lot of bartering.
I practice with my pistols and rifles.
I hunt so that my family has meat, and so we can use the money on more important preps.
I restrain myself from buying frivolous purchases so we can save and add to our pantry.
I garden so I can can vegetables.
I raise chickens, rabbits and goats so we have food, milk and cheese.

I just feel like as a mother it's my job to make sure my children are well cared for when the SHTF.

And OMG She does all that on Monday. It is hell trying to keep up with her.

Amazon is a perfect name. Linda Carter played a similar role.
