Financial challenges are not only common, they’re getting worse. In this article, number three of our Next Step Survival Prepper Q&A Series, I want to offer a little thought for those struggling with income and finances and seeking a better level of preparedness.

Listen To I Call BS On The Rule Of Threes For Survival — I May Have A Better Idea:

In my typical method of going against the grain, I call BS on The Rule of Threes Of Survival. In this short article, I cover the shortfalls of this simplistic and unrealistic standard of survival requirements that have been spread throughout our community for years.

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.
