This is an entirely different type of prepper book.
There are many good prepper list books, prepper skill books, survivalist and SHTF books out there. There are also some very good prepper fiction books that teach what items you should stockpile through fictional examples. This book is not one of either of those types of books. This book assumes you will not be able to stockpile everything you need in a worse-case scenario, and it suggests certain items to stockpile so that you can barter them for other SHTF supplies when the need arises. To put it another way, when it comes to stockpiling each and every item you need in a total SHTF situation, you can try but don’t plan on having everything together when you need it. So stockpile what you can and barter for everything else you will need. This book teaches you how to do that, which is — let’s face it — one of the most important prepper skills.
And serious prepping does not need to be expensive. In fact, there are many items that can be considered a prepper discount. Did you know that the following inexpensive SHTF items will be extremely important in times of disaster, or worse, in a societal collapse?
Dryer lint – this is something we all throw away, but keeping old dryer lint will quickly enable you to start a fire that can be used to purify water or cook food.
Salt – extremely cheap to buy today but will make a lot of prepper meals tasty. Salt is also important in preserving meat.
Bottled water – essential for shorter-term disasters when the tap water is shut off. And 24 plastic bottles of water cost less than $4!! Every household should have at least several cartons of bottled water, just in case…
Trash, like used milk and cola containers — clean them out and store water or dried foods in them.
Addiction Items – this book will advise you on what items to store in case of a longer-term disaster, besides cigarettes, so that you can barter for things that cost much more!!
Plus … some unusual testimonials from travelers, soldiers, and just plain Americans who have survived forms of SHTF by stockpiling these and other prepper items!
