Prepping can be an expensive and time-consuming endeavor. Stockpiling non-perishables—especially prepackaged, long-shelf life meals—takes a good chunk of change. Not to mention, some survival equipment is costly. Don’t let the price of prepping scare you off. You can prepare a go-bag for less. If you are strapped for cash, you can build a budget bug-out bag perfect for your car or for an unexpected disaster that will keep you dry, fed, warm, and hydrated for 24 hours.
