I just posted this on my blog...

I think that especially when you’re just starting out prepping, it can seem like small amounts of money don’t matter. But those small amounts can add up over weeks and months and you can build your preps little by little. $25 might seem like a relatively insignificant amount of money, but here’s what you can get for $25 or less each:

25 lbs. of frozen carrots at Walmart (which I dehydrate and store in mason jars)


17 lbs. of frozen spinach at Walmart


50 lbs. of rice at Sam’s Club (with about $9 leftover)


18 cans of canned mackerel at Walmart


6 packages of 30-count half-liter bottles of water from Sam’s Club for storage


7 cans of Cafe Bustelo coffee at Walmart (my only addiction – gotta have my coffee)


100 Winchester 9mm FMJ rounds at Walmart


an extra magazine for my Kel-Tec PF9 (with about $7 leftover)


a 400-count bottle of naproxen at Sam’s Club (with about $8 leftover)


10 paperback Bibles (because You must be logged in to see this link.)

And you can fill in the list with other items you want or need in your preps as well. But the next time you’re tempted to drop $25 for a week’s worth of fast-food meals, stop and think about how far $25 can go in helping you build up your preps. It can probably go a lot farther than you think.

Be prepared...and prepared to help:

Are you ready spiritually for hard times?
