There can be a lot of resentment in the prepper community. It comes from the idea that some have more than others. its as old as time itself. Its often the fact that those who don’t have as much as others blame money but actually don’t put in the effort or the thought.
That might sound harsh but there are all sorts of ways you can build your food storage on a budget. If you look into it and put in the work you, too, can find food independence in a hurry. These things are very important because your baseline of preparedness has to include something to do with food storage.
Make a Big Purchase
The next time you have an extra 20 dollars or even $50 you can use that money to really make a difference in your pantry. Most of us use that money to grab a quick meal or some frivolous entertainment. You will be surprised at how much dried beans and rice $50 will get you.
Spend an Extra 5 Dollars every week
The other method is to add an extra $5 to your supermarket budget. This method will take more time to show results but over time you will build some back up food storage.
Sales. Sales. Sales.
Glue your eyes to the sales and deals at local stores. Even strange places like pharmacies can offer up wild deals on the small types of food that they offer. This is the most labor intensive method but it can also be one of the most fruitful of them all. Those who have a real knack for couponing know how effective it can be.
There are many ways to improve your food storage situation. It doesn’t all have to do with money but there is a balance between time and money that must be struck. If you are going to move forward with your preparedness goals you have to have a strong base that features food storage.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
