I never thought when I started prepping that the practice of preparedness can actually have financial benefits. When experienced preppers tell me how prepping can actually save you money, I cound’t help it but think they are probably just encouraging me to start.
Honestly speaking it does take a while if you’re new or you’ve just started but trust me, in the long run the benefits and savings you do when prepping is huge.
There are so many ways that prepping can actually save you money and I figured that I’ll share the 3 most important ways that it can. Review them and let it encourage you to start prepping if you have not.
How Prepping Can Actually Save You Money [3Ways]
1. BUYING IN BULK OFTEN MEANS CHEAPER COST PER ITEM.
If you’re buying in bulk, chances are good you’re saving yourself money by reducing the amount you’re paying for each individual item. Of course, you’ll have to be sure you actually use what you’re buying or you’d be wasting in that regard, but bulk buying really works if it’s for staples, or things that don’t really expire.
2. YOU CAN BARTER SOME OF THE ITEMS YOU’VE STOCKPILED.
Bartering items you’ve stockpiled at a discount for other items you otherwise would’ve needed to pay full price for is a great way to save money while prepping.
Happened to have stockpiled way too much soap for you and your family to use throughout the time span you’d like to use it in? Think you don’t need all that extra? Use swap sites like Freecycle, or regular classified sites like Craigslist or Kijiji to trade the items you have that you no longer want for other items you’re missing and need to get your hands on.
3. LEARNING OTHER SELF-SUFFICIENCY SKILLS WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OVER A LIFETIME.
Learning how to do things like repair your own car, cook your own food, cut your own hair, sharpen your own knives, and more can really help you save money over a period of years and decades. The more serious you are about prepping, the more of these skills you will be determined to learn, and the less you will spend on others doing them for you.
