How to Prep When You’re Broke
by Daisy Luther
Prepping costs money. Everyone knows that, even the most staunch I’ll-Never-Be-A-Doomsday-Prepper-Why-Don’t-You-Live-A-Little co-worker you might have.
So, in this economy, under these conditions, how are you supposed to get prepared for the Next Big Catastrophe? Is it even possible?
Absolutely, it is.
And I know this for a fact from personal experience.
Being broke is nothing new for me. In fact, it was being broke that started me down the preparedness path almost thirty years ago. I did this while flat broke for a long, long time, and it changed my life. Not only was I ready for emergencies, but I also found that my financial situation improved. Being prepared makes sense and affects your life positively in so many different ways.
The number one factor people mention when asking questions on my website is money. They’re wondering how they can afford to do all these things that sound so extravagant when they’re just getting by. They want to know if it’s even possible to prep in the world we’re living in today.
They want to know if they can do it, even though they’re broke.
And in this book, I’m going to show you how.
