Penny-Pinching Prepper

By Bernie Carr

Cost-saving strategies for stockpiling emergency supplies and becoming fully prepared—without breaking the bank!


Survival is expensive. Water, food, medication, and shelter are just the beginning of what a family needs to safely make it through a catastrophic event. How is it possible to prepare for a hurricane or blizzard when it’s already a challenge to keep the bills paid? The Penny-Pinching Prepper shows readers how to get ready for the worst-case scenario tomorrow without going broke today. Written by an expert urban survivalist and the author of the popular website Apartment Prepper, this helpful guide presents the need-to-know strategies for acquiring life-saving supplies on the cheap while simultaneously reducing debt and slashing monthly bills. The Penny-Pinching Prepper helps readers get on a stable financial footing even as they implement the author’s inexpensive projects for DIY survival: including homemade water filters, Meals Ready to Eat, basic outdoor shelters, and even make-it-yourself emergency lamps and lighting.
