I think this book is dangerous in the hands of the average "prepping" reader.

Maybe I missed the point but, having a collection of "make do" tools is no way to survive, or sustain during a crisis. Case in point, MRE's were designed for military personnel on manuevers. They are mega high calorie meals and require plenty of water to digest. This point alone could result in your "meal" killing you.

If you MUST plan on a budget, use your money to take an urban or wilderness survival course. Experience and knowledge, not tools, is what you'll need to survive. With that experience and knowledge you can properly improvise to cover all you basic (and some advanced) needs with nothing but your bare hands. Only then, should you start building your "bug out bag".

No money? There are huundreds of quality videos on you tube that walk you step by step through the basic tasks like shelter, fire, foraging and hunting, cooking and storing food, etc. Watch these, but more importantly, get off the couch and try them. Until you do, all the gadgets and tools in the world will do you no good in a crisis. Imagine the average homeowner rebuilding his house from the foundation with only a hammer, saw, and maybe a few chisels. Would they be any more likely to build a house with all the tools in the local Sears or Home Depot? Would you?

So my issue with Prepping on a Budget was the lack of real education on why the items were chosen and how to properly use them.

One thing that I agree with, and it's the first recommendation I always give, is to take any of the free first aid, first responder, or life saving courses in your community.

I must admit that I often use a lack of spare money to prevent me from being better prepared. This book starts with the bottom line needs which everyone can get, because they often use them already (such as the lowly toothbrush) and how to buy things cheaply (or even scavenge them) so that no one has any excuse not being better prepared. I wish I could give this book more than five starts.

I'm glad that it goes straight to the punch at the very first few lines of reading. the number one reason one person will not make it in a survival situation while the next one will is procrastination. You can read all day every day, plan all day every day but you must Start Implementing. If you pay attention now to what you are doing wastefully you can cut and trim your wastefulness and believe me, that is acquiring a very useful skill. Count the bags of garbage you haul each week and see how to cut back on filling so many for the next week. And notice what it is you throw away, is it six empty cans, and what was in them? Vegetables maybe? Then go buy a can of dried vegetables. You notice what you eat, then think of preparing it differently. Unplug the microwave for one week and see how often you have been relying on it and turn the stove burner on and make coffee without the coffee maker. Next consider this, combine certain items into one- here's an example, cooking oil and hand lotion. This can be avocado oil or coconut oil, buy it now, use it now. Also, pay attention to what you read already in prepping literature. As an example each and every one mentions using charcoal in filtering water. Start learning how to make charcoal yourself, choose your favorite hardwood either oak or hickory and look up how to make charcoal and go do it until you made a pile of charcoal you yourself did on your own. How much sugar do you consume? Replace that 4 pound bag with a quart of honey and make oatmeal instead of a bowl of sugared up snaps. Make lemonade with the honey instead of drinking a citrus soda. Remember do it Now, don't procrastinate.

Unless you enjoy being berated by the author as a stupid reader with no common sense, scanning on for pages that talk about what they will discuss without actually getting around to describing the issue or giving any precise, practical steps to follow, and generally being frustrated with lack of substance, DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS BOOK!!
The author spent more time trying to convince the reader why he or she needs to straighten up and change and then gives no in-depth action plans. If you still needed to be convinced to prepare, you likely would not have been interested in this title in the first place! The remaining advice is so basic and generalized it isn't helpful in how to accomplish the goal. I would have given this zero stars if it were an option. Save your time, energy, and frustration and get a useful book such as Survival Mom or Urban Preppers with Kids, Pets and Parents.
