Who doesn’t want free electricity? Who doesn’t want to know that their food supply is taken care of? Everyone wants to be independent, don’t they? I know we do. Why should we pay for something we can get for zero cash if we just put forth a little effort now and then? Why should we continue to put food in our children that is questionable at best?
If you have made any effort at all to tackling those issues, you are a prepper at heart. Yes, you are. Don’t shake your head at me. I know you like more money in your pocket at the end of the week. Depending on your location, you can tackle most of these issues.
While it is true that people living in rural or suburban areas have the easier prepping atmosphere, there are still things you can and should do. Maybe you can’t get free electricity because you live in a high-rise apartment building in NYC, but you can make your apartment as energy efficient as possible. The acre of garden is out, but you might be able to plant a garden on your balcony, on the roof, and all year long inside your apartment. Doing both of these things will give you more money in your pocket at the end of the week. How nice will it be to pick your own beautiful red bell pepper instead of paying $5.00 for one in January?
