Did you know you can buy canned goods at the Dollar Store I just picked up 10 cans of chilli for five bucks 2 for a dollar 10 pounds of Pinto beans $1 for a 2 pound bag I also picked up a few bottles of hand sanitizer, band aids, gauze, Hydrogen Peroxide, Alcohol, Nitrile Gloves, a six-pack of Disposable lighters, a few boxes kitchen matches and a couple of other odds and ends. I got out of there for less than a hundred bucks.

Just walk the aisles in a dollar store and see what you can find you will be amazed at the number of items that you can use my wife and I try to make a trip into one of these stores 2 or 3 times a month inventory is constantly changing and you can find some great deals.

also Wal-Mart and Costco are good places if your going to buy in quantity but for items like first aid supplies and personal hygiene check out the Dollar Store.

Here is a list of items I look for when shopping the dollar stores

Gloves, socks, Duct Tape, Shampoo, Soap, Vitamins, Clippers, Razor, Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Floss, Comb/Brush, Hand Sanitizer, Feminine Products, Alcohol and Hydrogen Peroxide, Bandages, Latex Gloves, Nitrile Gloves, Batteries, Lighters, Matches, Canned goods, Dry good like rice and beans. This is only a small list of items, walk the aisles and see what you can find then let us know we will post it as an update to this post.

We will be posting a more comprehensive list of items you will need for your survival in an upcoming post.

Prepping on a budget is not that hard once you get used to the idea that you may have to cut something out. I dropped my gym membership got me an extra $40 month I just park a little further out in the parking lot when going to my favorite gun store. A friend quit smoking has an extra $2000 a year for those prepping items just bought himself a BUSHMASTER AR-15, XM15-E2S and plenty of ammo.

seriously when you go shopping pick up an extra couple cans of corn or chili my wife buys a couple of pounds of beans and rice from the bulk bins at our local grocer each week, she will also buy the store brand canned goods by the case and rotate them on a regular basis just write the date on the can with a marker and use the oldest first.

You will also want to put up some long shelf life foods we have found that the best place for us has been My Patriot Supply the price is right and they offer free shipping on orders over $79 and believe it or not their food actually tastes good. Here is a link to their site. My Patriot Supply

We also grow our own garden spring thru fall each year we purchased the survival seed vault from My Patriot Supply we purchased 3 cans for around $80 and save three times that on our grocery bill because they are non=GMO  100% Heirloom seeds we can save seeds to use in the future.

This should give you an idea where to start.  Figure out how you can cut out a couple extra dollars each week from your morning coffee or that supersize at lunch.
