Prep In 26 Paychecks!
Paycheck to Paycheck Prepping Guide:
Have you ever wonder how to start prepping? I have established this prepping guideline to help make the daunting task of getting prepared more manageable for you. Most people get paid bi-monthly, which means you will receive 26 paychecks this year. I have broken down the basic steps of getting prepared over each paycheck to make the process more manageable for you. Granted some folks make more than others, so please adjust your preps to what is comfortable for your budget. There is no need to go broke over night in order to provide for your family in times of disaster, job loss, or whatever scenarios you have chosen to prepare for. This is a process of learning, gathering, and becoming more self-reliant.
Becoming more self-reliant is something you can benefit from on a daily basis and not just in times of disaster. Building a pantry for example is a great way to avoid having to run to the store for one missing ingredient. It’s a great way to save money as well, by buying today you lock in today’s price, which will most-likely be higher the next time you go shopping.
Things To Consider When Using Our Guide
- Decide what you are prepping for and this will help dictate your top priorities.
- Realize that you can’t buy everything all at once so make a list and prioritize your needs.
- Identify special needs such as glasses, medications, or other personal needs and make sure to prep those items first.
- Stock up on food and water first, if you are fed and hydrated, it will buy you time to figure out the rest of your needs.
- Remember you can always come back and get stuff on the next paycheck.
- As you start prepping a lot of your needs will become clearer and your priorities will change so don’t get hung up on one idea or item. The important thing is that you have decided to start prepping… so do it!
- Always be on the look out for deals and creative ways to prep while saving some cash.
