Survival prepping can appear incredibly daunting, especially when people look at its cost. Many people are under the impression that in order to be a prepper you need to have fat stacks of cash at your disposal. However, this simply isn’t true. Prepping on a budget isn’t just possible but manageable too. All it takes is a lot of careful planning and a bit of self-control.
Before you can become a survival prepper, you need to be a smarter spender first. This is especially true if you have very limited funds. Whatever you have, you need to maximize it to the fullest, and here’s how:
Did you know that there are over a hundred, if not dozens upon dozens, of prep items that you can buy for a dollar or even less? It’s true, according to TheOrganicPrepper.com. When you combine this fact with good spending habits, then you’ll have an impressive emergency supply within a year or possibly even less.
Say, for example, you’ve got 20 dollars on you right now. That’s 20 dollars you can use to buy 20 prep items for the month. Next month, you’ve got another 20 dollars that can go towards another 20 prep items for your supply. You’ve just managed to amass 40 prepping essentials in two months on 40 dollars. Keep this up for another three months, and you’ll have well over 100 items in just five months. All while spending no more than 100 dollars. Of course, you can save even more if you buy secondhand items rather than brand-new ones. (Related: Prepping for the unexpected on the go: 10 must-haves for your glove box)

Just like that, you’ve taken the first few steps towards becoming a prepper. Remember that prepping is all about getting yourself ready for emergencies and crises. It doesn’t entail spending big bucks on fancy survival tools and equipment. So no matter your budget, you too can be a prepper.
