If you haven’t been following the incremental plan or are just starting I want you to realize how just getting started is a BIG DEAL. The majority of the citizens (and occupants) of this country have less prepared than what you would have if you followed this plan to this weeks amounts.
Most people have good plans, but they never follow through. Just the act of starting makes you special – but don’t stop keep following the incremental plan and taking little steps and you will eventually have a huge safety net.
I find that by dong this incrementally and spending a few dollars “extra” when going shopping, building a kit is rather painless and the money spent is really not noticed, but after a while the kit grows.
You can easilly build on this to where you have a large pantry and can start to save for bulk purchases of food – which will start to save you money which you can then reinvest to paying down debt, building savings, and buying larger preparedness items. It is really a situation where a little discipline will cause you to win.
