A different preparedness goal met!
« on: July 01, 2020, 09:41:37 AM »
It seems I have reached a quite significant goal in preparedness, one that is not generally considered.
I call it the "Do not have to buy anything for a year" goal.

Indeed, I think I have reached the point that I do not have to buy anything, especially consumables , other than fresh food.
No foreseeable need for batteries, no need maintenance consumables (glues, nails etc), no need clothes, no need for coffee, etc etc...

I guess that many of you might have already been there, and it is an easy goal for a dedicated prepper/survivalist to get, nevertheless if can be considered a method.

And BTW I did this gradually without diving into my pockets. I mainly used my "2 Euro Each Time method"

Way to go Greekman.
Can you elaborate on your "2 Euro Each Time method" please? Is it putting aside 2 euros every time you go to the store, or every pay day, or each time you swear, or what?

you spent up to 2 Euros on (long) term preps every time you go to the supermarket for the regular shopping.

Thanks. €2.00 isn't much more than $2.00 - we should be able to do that without any troubles.

Well done Greekman.
We're probably close to that saying.
My main, lacking, prep item is a deep well water pump.
I have gas and a generator, but when the gas runs out.......
Oh, and to get the solar set up.
