Woman Has Spent £15k Preparing For End Of The World

Woman Has Spent £15k Preparing For End Of The World

A woman has spent a whopping £15,000 on supplies to get herself ready for a doomsday scenario. You can check it out here:


Rowan MacKenzie, from the US, started stockpiling goods such as beans and rice 11 years ago to be prepared for the end of civilisation as we know it. 

As her reserves grew, she decided to build a secret bunker in her basement, which set her back around £7,650 ($10,000) and is now filled with her food, water and even an extensive range of weaponry. 


The 38-year-old said: “The number one must for any bunker is defence. 

“I would highly recommend having a few guns and knives in your bunker at all times, along with ample amounts of ammunition.

“You need to protect yourself, especially in a ‘dog eat dog’ situation. It’s kill or be killed and you need the best possible chance of survival.


“Also, if meat becomes scarce, guns are good for hunting.

“I had the secret bunker made for prepping purposes, where I have enough supplies for a family of three to last around two years.

“I prep for now, as you never know day-to-day what might happen.

“I believe everyone should be to some degree prepared, as food is necessary for life and everyone should have extra for an emergency.

“The day is upon us where being prepared is a blessing, as food will disappear and become overpriced if there’s a war.

“We will all feel the side effects eventually."

Homemaker Rowan reckons her stocks will last up to 25 years and says she has a ‘flawless’ system to ensure there’s no waste – in total she’s spent around £15,300 ($20,000) on prepping materials and food replacement. 


Rowan recently uploaded a video of her bunker to TikTok, where it went viral. 

In the clip, she pans across the room where 10 bottles of oil can be seen alongside storage boxes full of flour, oats and other items.

Offering advice to others, she said: “My biggest advice is: don’t panic. Breathe, make a list and execute.


“It’s easy to get overwhelmed and try to panic-buy supplies, but I don’t and will never encourage this.

“Just buy a few extra items each time you shop and eventually, you will see progress.

“There is no better feeling than knowing you are ready for anything that could happen and having your family protected.

“The main thing is to remain calm and have a plan.”
