Welcome GirlScout. I understand the spouse thing. Mine doesn’t get it but she is fine with me buying whatever I want so long as she gets to do the same. When we bought what was our bug out home (which is now our fulltime home) she was OK with it so long as she could direct the renovations (the house was a bit of a fixer upper). I think preppers are just born that way. My son is totally in sync with me. My daughter mostly humors me.
