Prepping, start small and simple
Beware the "mall ninja” approach& to your preparations. Don’t overwhelm yourself with too much of the yuppie survivalist big-money types that fill some of the blogs.
I am a confirmed gun wonk of the first order, and the very nature of the "gun culture" can lead anyone into excessiveness. Yes buy ammo and a good selection of good firearms, but the most needed supplies will not be very "sexy”.
Evaluate your situation, at this point it looks as if we are going to have an economic collapse& and it will take some time and will be more obvious than we expect.
The time is here to stock "fill ins" such as canned goods, start with adding a few cans every grocery trip, I suggest items that complement your dry good storage, items of higher vitamin content that are not available in reasonably priced dry form.

Canned foods suggestions:
Tomatoes and paste
Peaches, pineapple, blueberries and other fruits
Meats (tuna, ham, and others)
Peppers and Salsa blends
Eggs (not always available at the grocery store, try mail order)
Pasta (whole wheat)
Wheat (not always available at the grocery store, try local Health foods suppliers)
Adding small selections of items each trip will help add to the storage plan.
