Book Review: Prepping for Pennies

12:23 AM

Living on one income isn't easy. No matter what your personal situation might be, it's important to realize that you can prep and keep your family safe. Even if you don't have a lot of money to invest in prepping, it's possible to do this simply and inexpensively.

This week, I read a book called Prepping for Pennies by Dave Steen. The author sent me a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review of the book.

If you've read my own work, you know that I love the idea of prepping on a budget. I think books like this are beneficial for parents and large families since they provide plenty of ideas for getting prepared without investing thousands of dollars.

The book starts out with a lot of general information about prepping. This offers a good starting point for new preppers. If you are an experienced prepper or have already done a lot of research on the pros and cons of bugging out, you may not find this section especially beneficial. For new preppers, though, this part of the book gives you a solid overview of basic issues you need to think about before you prep.

One of the biggest things you'll get out of Prepping for Pennies is that this book offers a ton of pictures. I mean, a ton. Most prepping books, especially books you find on Kindle, aren't going to offer as many visual aids. If you're a visual learner, you'll probably really enjoy this.

There are also a lot of unusual and simple tips for prepping that you might not have thought of. If you're serious about prepping inexpensively, you'll learn how to use items you have on hand, how to find things for cheap that you can use to prep, and how you can shop inexpensively. Even as an experienced prepper, I found some new ideas that I hadn't already considered.

I do also like that the book addresses the importance of weapons. Many prepping books gloss over this issue, but if you're prepping for a disaster, you need to know how you're going to protect your family.

Overall, my only complaint about this guide is that there are some ads in it. While they're easy to skip through, they're still a little annoying. If you're looking for a very informative guide on prepping; however, I'm sure you can overlook this and still walk away with all of the information that you need to get started.
