Its always the money, isn’t it? It seems like so many problems originate from not having the money or assuming we dont have the money. It could be for that big vacation, that extension on the home or prepping.
The 21st century is becoming the age of capability. We are understanding what we, as humans, are capable of so much more than we know. We are capable of things like sacrifice, unparalleled will and doing the most good.
It’s easy to think you are just a mess in bad relationships and financial woes. Prepping is just one aspect of how you can overcome the struggles of life, like money issues. So, how can you prep if you are tight on money?
There are so many ways that you can cut spending. Of course, you feel like everything you spend money on is something you need. In most cases, we are spending way too much money on things we dont need.
Everyone reading this has the ability to cut at least cut one thing. That money can be funneled to prepping.
Anyone can start a YouTube channel. You should consider using your own YouTube channel and work in conjunction with some companies that have the gear you are passionate about. You can get free review gear that becomes part of your preps.
Budget for Preps
You could also just manage your budget a little differently. People think that you need a lot of money to prepare but you can put a serious dent in food storage just by putting away an extra 30 bucks per week.
Even things like medical preps can be had at dollar general. Rolled gauze is rolled gauze and you are going to make a difference the more you have. It comes down to committing to what you are going to spend your money on!
