Listen To This Article: (Note: This is my first time recording my voice for the audio file, and I used a noise canceling mic, which clipped some of the consonants, making it sound like I have a cleft lip. I’ll do better next time.)

Reallocating Funds For Prepping

Listen To Reallocating Funds For Prepping:

In this article, Reallocating Funds For Prepping, I will touch on an essential (And tedious) aspect of prepping – our finances and tightening our budget so we have more for preparedness.

I won’t get into the political and corporate tyranny that has us on this path. I have a personal blog for topics like that.

I’m not going to give you 101 ways to save money. The internet is full of great resources like that. Using dollar stores, stretching a bag of flour, buying generic brands, eating at home, shopping in discount grocery stores, etc. I’ve been cutting my own hair for years, but that’s not what I want for this article.

This article is more like a personal message with examples to help get your ideas flowing—typical Brian oversharing.

I will focus on saving more and spending less as a prepper. Almost everything the average Jane or Joe can do to clean up their finances works for preppers. The one glaring difference is what we consider essential. Our priorities are a little different when it comes to certain expenses.

This ‘getting started‘ article is my Ten Steps To Preparedness for the people that aren’t interested in living, eating, and breathing the prepper lifestyle yet understand the value of being a little more prepared. Maybe you don’t even care for the label ‘prepper.’

In this article, I want to help you sharpen those skills without our recommended steps of forming a Threat Assessment, developing a Preparedness Action Plan, working on your Preparedness Mindset, or maybe even starting an entire Prepper Pantry.
