Prepping for the Financially Challenged: A One Month Survival Plan For Under $300
The American Dream Lost
March 12th, 2012
Many people are now waking up to the possibility that the future may not provide the great recovery we all expect it to be. They are begining to sense that something is wrong with the economy and it will not get better. Their first thought is the question, What do I do to protect myself and my family? They usually answer that question with the thought, maybe these preppers aren’t so crazy after all. How do you prep with very little money?
Many start answering this question with buy this and buy that but that is not the first step to prepping. Every situation is different so your preps need to reflect your situation. The first thing you need to do is get a legal pad or a note book to write in and answer these basic questions.
Do you own or rent?
Do you live in an apartment or a home with a yard?
Is your home paid for or could you lose it if your income were cut off?
Do you have some place else to go if things get too bad or you lose your home?
Can you plant a garden or fruit trees in your yard?
Can you own livestock or even a few chickens?
How much can you afford per month to buy supplies?
These questions are just a start but they will determine what you will need to get by in a difficult situation.
