When it comes to prepping supplies that will “save your life” there is literally no end to what we can buy. While we all know that skills will be more valuable than gear in a disaster situation, there are some supplies that we shouldn’t skimp on.
When it comes to buying supplies that help you become better prepared, there is a difference between getting a good deal, and skimping. Price doesn’t necessarily equal quality. You can spend $100 on a few Sawyer Mini water filters, but if you live in an urban environment, it won’t do a thing for you.
On the other side, you can find some great deals at thrift stores, garage sales, eBay and Craig’s List. The bottom line is, if the product fits your needs, and is going to work when you need it to, that’s more important than what you paid for it.
