I would recommend the following.
1. Learn how to make alcohol, for drinking and for fuel. (And make sure you know the difference.
2. Stock up on weapons. Handguns, rifles, and shotguns. One of the shotguns should be sawed off. The barrel should be at least 18.5 inches long. (18 inches is the legal length, but keep it a little longer, in case the cop's ruler is "off."
3. It may sound stupid, but be sure you have enough ammo for all your weapons, and don't forget the lowly .22 cal. It's amazing how deadly a .22 can be.
4. Stock up on foods that can be prepared with water, or just heat and eat. Stock up on powdered milk.
5. Utilities will fail. Stock up on water. A couple of drops of bleach to a gallon will keep it drinkable.
6. Stock up on as much gasoline and kerosene as you can safely store.
7. Purchase a generator.
8. Keep extra "stuff" around for barter.
9. Hit flea markets. Buy axes, machetes, knives etc. Keep them sharp and ready. You will be surprised how much you will be able to trade for a good axe, hatchet, or anything with a blade.
10. Remember, the world will be in chaos. To quote from the X-Files, "Trust no one."
11. You, and each member of your family must have a BOB in case you have to cut and run in a hurry.;
