One of the most common laments I hear about Prepping is how to do it on a severe budget. This is a lament with which I'm familiar, since we live on a VERY severe budget.
This morning I got onto SurvivalBlog and found this article which addresses the subject. I thought it was well-written from the perspective of someone who has been-there-done-that.
The writer concludes with these words:
So how to be a Prepper on a low budget? Take one step at a time. Always look for small ways to get ahead. Check sales on food and medicines, household items. Save up for the big and set a priority list. If something happens before my list is done I will still be better off than I was before.
