Save Money for More Prepping

There are three hindrances that all preppers face. Don’t get me wrong, there are many more but three of them stand out more than others.

  1. Time
  2. Money
  3. Space

These three are often things we cannot control, for the most part. It’s a struggle to deal with finding time to prep and it’s nearly impossible to find a new storage space for those preps to go into. Now, if you are a little crazy you can find your ways around things like this.


When it comes to time you are either gonna have it or not. I would recommend waking up earlier. If you can get to bed earlier and rise a little earlier, just a couple hours, you will find you can get a lot done in that short window.


Money stops everything. When you don’t have money you can buy preps. So how can you go about saving money? Well, there is always a little room for improvement. There is always a way to get a little better.

Do you eat fast food? Stop that. While those $8 trips don’t seem like much, if you make three of them a week you are tossing $100 dollars a month away on fries!

Imagine what you could do with $100 a month if you really sat down and thought about it. That is how you get space in your finances and start to include prepping as a priority. Its like I said at the head of the article. If you are crazy enough, anything is possible.


When dealing with space you can get real crazy about things like false walls and various hidey-holes in the home. I have even read of people storing cans in hollow doors! Anything is possible if you are dedicated!

Maybe your space issues are outside.  Feed your plants and compost in a small space, to save space for other things.  Sit down and plan it out. That is how you maximize space.
