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.Read more ›

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.
