Prepper Items You Can Buy For A Buck

We share many ways to save money while prepping, and today we bring you some preparedness supplies that can be purchased for just a dollar.

Prepping on a budget can be tough. While I do always recommend that you should purchase the very best you can afford, some things are worth getting cheap.

We share loads of ways to save money while prepping on, and today we bring you some preparedness supplies that can be purchased for just a dollar. Yep, just a dollar.

There is no getting around it, prepping can be downright expensive!

You want quality but you also need a bunch of food and gear and guns and ammo, and stuff to put all that stuff in, and backup for that gear would be a good idea too, and by the way you should probably put some supplies up at a separate location, oh, and don’t forget about your vehicle, and your work, and what about a cache in the woods….

And if you’re prepping for a family these costs are double, triple, or even quadruple!

Sometimes you just need an item and simply don’t have the extra cash to purchase the best. There’s no shame in that. Or perhaps you need backup supplies.

The dollar store works well for backup kits if money is tight. At any rate, buying things from the dollar store or some other bargain outlet simply makes good economic sense sometimes.

Are you ready to do some budget prepping?

Beyond the Dollar Store

Your local dollar store is not the only place you will find bargains on prepping essentials.  The back aisles of many drugstores and big box stores will have a few deals if you take a look through the clearance section every now and then.

And then there is the online kingpins, eBay and Amazon, where countless deals can be found for insanely low prices, like these emergency blankets for less than $0.75 each.

Prepping doesn’t have to be hard or expensive, nor does it have to be full of lists and figures. Sometimes all it takes is getting off your butt and doing it. Start your prepper journey today with a trip to the dollar store, as you’ve seen there’s really no excuse for not being prepared.
