10 Simple Ways To Prep For Survival Without Spending Money That Everyone Can Do!

  • Most people that became preppers did so because you just never know what might happen in the future. However, most preppers started out being worried about all the money it would cost to start gathering supplies. These ten easy ways to prep for survival don't require money at all. You'll be amazed by how prepared just doing these things can make you!

    Some Ways To Prep Without Spending Money Are: 

    1. Research the biggest risks of your area.  If you’re serious about prepping and survival, you need to be ready to invest countless hours into research. Specifically, you need to focus on researching the biggest risks that your local community or area faces so that you know which type of disaster is most likely to occur.
    2. Have a plan. You should always have plans written down for specific scenarios before they occur so that you’re more ready when a crisis does hit.
    3. Learn how to reuse basic items. There are numerous items, lying around your house right now, that you can apply to a survival situation. You can make miniature grills out of Altoid tins and torches out of drinking straws, and use dental floss as fishing line.

    4. Set aside cash. Think of it as saving money rather than spending it. Over the course of a long-term disaster, you might not be able to access the funds in your bank.
    5. Build improvised weapons. Learning how to build improvised weapons, such as a bow and arrow (out of sticks) or a spear (with little more than glass shards and poles) can be a fun activity.

    6. Learn advanced first-aid skills. Every injury, no matter how small, requires attention in a survival situation. You can learn advanced first-aid skills on your own time without spending any money.
