10 Preparedness Supplies bought for less than $10.00 each

From Rourke: This post was originally published over at SeasonedCitizenPrepper.com. It can be seen in its original format HERE.

 

It doesn’t take a ton of money to get prepared. Many of us – “seasoned citizens” or not – live on a tight budget. I took a trip to my local Wally-World to check out some inexpensive supplies that can be purchased for less than $10.00.

Here are a few:

Guest Post: I must be going crazy

by Dustin

 

I must be going crazy. Hours spent researching solar water heaters, how to build game traps, how to make gunpowder. Sleepless nights spent worrying about how to get to my bug-out location that does not yet exist. Stressing over how to provide for my family when things get really bad and I don’t have enough food or water. Just as I felt my sanity slipping away I had an epiphany. I have

Flashlight Review: Mini 400 Lumens CREE Q5 LED Flashlight

I have a huge flashlight fetish. They are all over my house. They vary in size and power and battery size. Ever since I was a kid and my dad gave me this cool looking metal flashlight, silver in color with a switch on the side that had a button that I could press to create light – I was hooked.

Nowadays – LED rules that day. Most of all my flashlights run on AA,

Recent preps……

What a stressful week. Flew by and now the weekend is almost over. Spent Saturday running kids around and then out for dinner with friends – then the “after-party”. I pretty much got nothing done that I had hoped for.

I have recently connected with a group of 5 like-minded individuals. We have met on a few occasions and will be doing so again this week. I am hoping that the five of us will

Guest Post: Caching Today for an Iffy Tomorrow

Caching Today for an Iffy Tomorrow

By S.D.

The desire to hide items is inherent in human nature. Buried treasure is the classic example. One of the most historic instances happened thousands of years ago when the Copper Scroll was hidden among the Dead Sea Scrolls near Qumran. It listed more than 60 locations where treasures were buried, along with directions on how to

Repost: After TSHTF – Uncommon places to find supplies

In a significant TSHTF incident—there may be a need to obtain additional supplies. This need may come from having to replenish your stocks over time. Also—you may be caught away from your cache or traveling—and need to access these valuable items.

Once the “event” occurs grocery stores will be completely out of food within hours. If there is power—lines will form and gas stations will be out of fuel quickly. The most obvious sources for

Supply Review: Gunshack G2 flashlight

G2_3-500x500

I recently had an opportunity to purchase two(2) Gunshack G2 flashlights through GearHog.com at a really good price. I love flashlights in my preparedness system I can’t have too many (along with batteries of course). Over the last decade technology has lead to flashlights getting brighter, smaller, and less expensive. Most of my lights run off of either AA alkaline or CR123 batteries. Unique to the Gun Shack

Light. Probably one of the very first things a prepper considers when making a list of supplies to stock up on in case of an emergency. That famous lined, yellow notebook is brought out and at the very top “flashlights” is written, followed by “batteries”, “food”, “water”, etc.

Almost half of every single day the sun is shining on the other side of the Earth, while we bask in darkness. In today’s world
