What's your baseline for preps?

What time baseline do you use (or are working towards) for your preps? Three days? A week? Two weeks? A month? Six months? Three years?

Food, water and other consumables. What's the minimum that you are comfortable with?

If someone was new to the whole disaster/end of times preparation thing, what time horizon would you recommend for them?

My personal baseline is around a month for food and two weeks for water (plus means to acquire & clean more). More is of course better, and we certainly have more stocked up, but a month will outlast most troubles. Less and I start to get an uneasy feeling...

For newbies, I recommend starting with two weeks and going from there. Very doable, even in a small apartment. More "getting started" recommendations right here.

How about you guys? What's your personal baseline, what do you recommend to others?
