Is Prepping a waste of money?

I often get asked the question – Isn’t prepping just a big waste of money?
The naysayer would say: What if nothing goes wrong? Why would I throw my money away prepping for a disaster that will probably never happen?
The prepper would say: Its better safe than sorry! While the sheeple are fighting over scraps, I’ll be set for whatever comes.
Here are a couple of reasons that we believe prepping is well worth the effort.
  • Prepping is a good financial investment. People who prep tend to actually save a lot of money. If you are buying the necessities, you can wait until those things go on sale and buy them when they are at their cheapest price.
  • Inflation – Buying the necessities now is smarter than years from now when prices are likely to skyrocket.
  • Prepping makes sense for small scale disasters. What if you lose your job? Would having a stocked pantry full of food help?
In our current economic climate prepping just makes sense! If you stock up on products that you are going to use anyways then prepping will never be a waste of money.

  1. Ugh. I HOPE we're wrong.

    But what's the harm if we are? We've saved money and stimulated the economy a little with our purchases.

    On the other hand, if THEY'RE wrong.... well, they'd be wishing they were preppers, too...
