preparing with limited income
Besides having a "BOB" what are some good ways of being prepared on a limited income while going to school. I know some people say to slowly get the means that is needed in case of an emergency situation such as a natural disaster but what if there isn't a huge amount of time left?

Re: preparing with limited income
One thing that is often looked over, but is extremely important Is your own physical preparednes.

If you are not physically fit you won't be able to hike with that 40 pound rucksack.

Becoming fit does not really cost anything financially. It's an investment of your time and energy for return of your own health.

I do Tacfit commando. It's a type of high-intensity interval training, That incorporates flexibility mobility and recovery into the program.

All that is required is a yoga mat.

Re: preparing with limited income
Start easy and cheap

Water .... I keep refilling milk jugs, whether I need it or not, can be used for bathing and cleaning, if not drinking

Food...I can everything, ESP now when produce comes in, can dry or can fruits and veggies, and ESP meats

Fuel...I get a 2.5-5.0 gal gas can every paycheck and fill them. Store Nd rotate

Every payday I look for something else I might need. Go on a prep website and start a wish list and every pay get another item

That is at least a start. You can always add on from there.

Dont throw throw anything away....zip bags, alum foil, soda cans can be made into lamps and cookers, broken crayons can become candles, egg cartons can make great fire starter molds, dried leaves can become fireplace bricks....

That's awesome. I do have a small portable cooking thing, tons of candles, the small yet cheap stuff. I live in a small place so storing isn't easy. I use to have a prep site saved on my computer until I bought a new one. I need to look it up again. Let's just pray nothing major happens anytime soon.

Re: preparing with limited income
One of the main things you should get is a water purifier, even if its just a small pump one and/or purifier tablets.
I few good Knives like a Gerber, Kershaw or equivalent.
Good Hiking boots and some wool socks. A form of fire starting would always help. Raingear that is durable, and a rechargeable or crank charge flash light/radio.
If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

I have 2 bottles of the tablets. I seen those drinking straws I wonder how well they work. I got a knife, boots not hiking but they are boots so I will look around for those. I have water proof matches, a flint to go along with it. I have the disposable rain gear and those metallic blankets. And I have the last also. So there is a few things I need along with sleeping bags and some kind of coverage like a tent or large tarp.

Pasta and water, remember the more protein and salt you eat the more water you need. Stock up on your medications if it applies, and some over the counter ones too. Always fill you gas tank at half. Get a gun and learn to use it.You can get a cc used gun for about 250 in decent shape. Keep some cash on you, in case we have a power outage or the government seizes bank accounts. Get some camping supplies, blankets in your car, garbage bags for your waste. Make a plan with close friends and family. People you can trust. I mean all this is on the net. What I just mentions can be done for about 500 dollars minus the cash on hand. We will have time, if we don't none of the above matter because it will be to late.

In my opinion if you want to help your child, start teaching him how to shoot, Hunt, dress animals and fish. also with that book it has plants that are good to eat. Set up a group of friends and family because you wont be able to survive alone.
