We can all agree that prepping costs money. It’s hard to imagine buying extra food when you feel like you can barely buy groceries to make it until the next paycheck. Thinking about spending over $100 on a prepper purchase is enough to induce a cold sweat for a lot of folks. Over at Preppers University, we charge a fee that works out to only $17.50 a week for our live course that helps folks get prepped in eight weeks flat and many people feel that even that is too much for their budgets to handle
But is it really?
Or do you actually blow more than that every single week on frivolous things? If you are like most Americans, it’s entirely likely that you have many places you could slash spending with very little effect on your quality of life.
One of the most frequent questions I hear from readers is, “What do I do if I can’t afford to prep?”
And my answer is always this. “Are you sure you can’t afford it? What money could you reallocate?”
If you aren’t already in an absolutely dire situation, then nearly all of us have some places that we can cut the budget and put that money to better use.
It’s time for some tough love. Some painful, brutal honesty.
If you “can’t afford to prep” but you are still spending money on any of the things on the list below, then you have willfully signed on for a very difficult future. One that won’t just affect you, but also your family.
