5. Get some weapons
And by weapons I mean more than just guns. As seen in The Walking Dead and many other zombie-related works of fiction, firing guns attract more attention than typically wanted. You want to get everything from bows and arrows to baseball bats to even katana swords, if you want to channel your inner Michonne. Anything that kill zombies efficiently and quietly is your top priority.
