How To Save Money & Buy More Preps (Part 1)

how to save money

All preppers need to know how to save money. This isn’t just a survival skill to “get by” – this can help you the rest of your life.

The fact is money is an extremely valuable resource. With it we can buy practically anything we want. But too often we waste this precious resource on things that either don’t really matter or won’t help us in the long-run (like that HBO account your wife uses).

We also throw away our money on things that don’t last (like eating at restaurants), or that have very little likelihood of returning our investment (like lottery tickets).

No matter what your guilty pleasure, the fact is we’ve all done this. However, an emergency situation is likely right around the corner. Which means it’s time for us to change our ways now and start learning…

How To Save Money & Buy More Preps (Part 1)

Quit The Soda Addiction

Soda (or pop, depending on where you live) is tempting. But it’s also a throw-away investment. It’s terrible for you, it contains loads of sugar and empty calories, and it’s downright addictive. It also works against your body and its ability to perform in a crisis.

Do yourself a favor and put down that Coke (or Diet Coke which, let’s face it, is NOT healthier) and opt for some good clean water. If you get bored with it you can add fruit combinations like strawberry + cucumber + mint (or lemon + raspberries). Yum.

Stop Buying Aquafina (And Other Bottled Water Brands)

Bottled water is surprisingly expensive. Whether you get it from a vending machine, supermarket or street vendor, it’ll easily run you $1.50 – $3+ depending on the location. And although this might sound cheap, it adds up QUICK.

Not to mention, these are often one-time use items. Sure, you can refill it. But the fact is most people don’t – they toss it in the bin and go about their day. Not only is this wasteful, but it also drains your bank account unnecessarily.

Do yourself a favor and invest in a large, durable water bottle. This one-time cost lasts you for years (and is even dishwasher-safe). You can take it with you wherever you go, and most gas stations/coffee shops will gladly refill it for you. Plus, if you opt for a water bottle with a filter inside, you can have countless amounts of pure drinking water.

Do Laundry On The Cheap

Whether you use your apartment’s laundry machines, go to the laundromat, or wash clothes at home, one thing’s for sure. Laundry is expensive and uses up lots of energy (which you pay for when that delightful bill shows up every month).

Do yourself a favor and use a lower temperature setting on your washing machine whenever possible. If you’ve got good-quality detergent, it should still remove dirt and gunk – even without the hot water.

Plus, instead of wasting all that energy you can go “old-school” and hang your clothes to dry on a line. You can also buy a drying rack.

If you must use the dryer, dry your clothes on the low setting. This uses less energy and avoids over-drying your clothes (which is basically pointless, wastes energy and makes them staticky).

Go Generic

Do you know how much money we waste on buying brand-name goods? A LOT. And the sad part is many of the cheaper generic brands are just as good as their expensive brand-name counterparts.

Buy generic as much as possible to start saving money on groceries. This can especially pay off on things like medications (you can look at the ingredients list on both brands and see they’re often the exact same thing).

And by the way – this doesn’t just have to do with food and medication. Buying off-brand items goes for lots of other things too, like clothing. For example, why spend $50 on a T-shirt?  Go to Walmart to buy clothes, or visit a thrift store. You can also snag amazing deals at yard sales.

The point of clothing is to clothe yourself – plain and simple. And when SHTF it’s not going to matter who’s wearing Gucci and who’s wearing Walmart-brand stuff. All that’s going to matter is that these clothes keep you warm.

Stop Wasting Food

Americans throw away countless pounds of food every single year. What a waste! You can save money on groceries (and help save the planet) a few different ways.

For one, check your expiration dates and use food that’s about to go bad FIRST. You know how you rotate your food stockpile using the FIFO (First In First Out) method? Do the same with your pantry and your fridge. And if something’s in the fridge that you won’t be able to eat before it expires, put it in the freezer and save it for later.

Things like produce are harder to save, since they have a very short shelf-life. So you’ll have to get creative. If those bananas go bad, make banana bread (it’s crazy easy to make, is delicious and lasts at least another week). Or if you truly can’t use your moldy fruits/veggies/herbs then start a compost pile. This ensures you get rich, nutritious soil that’ll help your plants thrive.

Which leads me to another point…

Grow Your Own Food

Buying produce can be expensive – especially since it adds up so quickly. Plus when you buy produce at the store you have no control of how the growers grew their crops (if they used pesticides, GMOs, etc).

However, when you have a survival garden you call the shots. You’ll have to buy the seeds or starter plants, but it’s truly shocking how much produce one little plant can produce (if you don’t believe me, buy a cherry tomato plant).

Plus, if you really want to have a large harvest, add some of that compost you made and layer it onto the soil. This gives your plants a huge boost of nutrients and helps them flourish.


There are obviously tons of ways to save money – way more than I can fit in one blog. So I’ve written a second article on this topic. You can check it out right here. (Also – want to learn cool ways to earn some extra money – not just save it? Check out our survival article here).

Remember, the more money you save now, the more you’ll have for buying preps! Prepare Now, Survive Later!



Majority of Job Growth Since 2019 Has Gone to Migrant Invaders


The majority of job growth in the United States since 2019 has gone to newly arrived migrants, while working-class American men continue to fall out of the labor force, an alarming analysis reveals.

Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies published this analysis, showcasing the devastating impact of President Joe Biden’s agenda to expand the labor market through mass immigration. Instead of focusing on getting Americans back to work, Biden’s policies have overwhelmingly favored migrants, both legal and illegal, at the expense of American workers.

Since 2019, before the Chinese coronavirus pandemic disrupted the economy, about 75 percent of all U.S. job growth has been attributed to newly arrived migrants. In stark contrast, fewer than one million Americans have joined the workforce during the same period. This betrayal of American workers is nothing short of scandalous.

“The government’s household survey shows that there were only 971,000 more U.S.-born Americans employed in May 2024 compared to May 2019 prior to the pandemic, while the number of employed immigrants has increased by 3.2 million,” Camarota writes. This stark disparity highlights the Biden Administration’s prioritization of foreign workers over American citizens.

Meanwhile, labor participation among working-class American men continues to decline dramatically. For American men in the prime age range of 25 to 54 years old with only a high school diploma, labor participation has plummeted from 95.7 percent in 1960 to a shocking 81.6 percent in 2024. Similarly, for those without a bachelor’s degree, labor participation fell from 95.8 percent in 1960 to a dismal 84.8 percent in 2024. Across all education levels, labor participation for prime-age American men has dropped nearly eight percentage points over 64 years, a clear sign of systemic neglect and failure.

Camarota emphasizes, “The labor force participation rate — the share working or looking for work — has declined dramatically among U.S.-born men since the 1960s, particularly for those without a bachelor’s degree. While labor force participation among these groups has roughly returned to pre-pandemic levels, the rate in 2024 remains at or near historical lows relative to other peaks in the business cycle. This is true even for U.S.-born men who are in the ‘prime’ 25-54 age range for working.” The administration’s disregard for these alarming statistics is both irresponsible and outrageous.

For years, the decline in labor participation among American men has been well-documented, yet the Biden Administration continues to prioritize the influx of newly arrived migrants, who are quickly awarded work permits after being released into the U.S. interior. Since 2023 alone, nearly 300,000 native-born Americans have fallen out of the workforce, while about 637,000 migrants have been added. This blatant disregard for American workers is unacceptable.

Biden’s policies have driven the foreign-born population to unprecedented heights. Today, the foreign-born population stands at a staggering 51.6 million — the largest ever recorded in American history. This means roughly three in 19 people living in the U.S. were born in a foreign country, a statistic that underscores the significant and troubling shift in the American labor market under the current administration. This is a clear indicator of the Biden Administration’s betrayal of American workers and its commitment to prioritizing foreign interests over those of its own citizens.

GUILTY: Hunter Biden Convicted on All Counts


In a significant blow to the Biden Administration, a federal jury has convicted Hunter Biden on all three federal felony gun charges he faced. This conviction underscores the corruption and lawlessness that many believe epitomize the Biden family.

Hunter Biden’s conviction is historic, marking the first time an immediate family member of a sitting president has been found guilty of a crime during their father’s term in office. The jury, deliberating for less than three hours, returned guilty verdicts on all charges related to a revolver Hunter Biden purchased in October 2018 at a Delaware gun shop.

The charges against Hunter Biden include two counts of lying about his drug use on a federal background check form and one count of possessing a gun while addicted to, or using, illegal drugs. Sentencing is typically set for 120 days following a verdict, and Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of $750,000. However, as a first-time offender, it is likely that his sentence will be far less severe, sparking concerns of preferential treatment.

Following the verdict, Hunter Biden expressed gratitude for his family’s support rather than addressing the gravity of his conviction. His attorney, Abbe Lowell, announced that they would continue to “vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter,” displaying a defiant attitude despite the jury’s decision.

President Joe Biden, in a statement, reiterated his role as a supportive father rather than addressing the implications of his son’s criminal actions. “As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today,” he said, choosing to focus on familial bonds over accountability.

Special Counsel David Weiss emphasized that the case was about the “illegal choices” Hunter Biden made while using drugs, underscoring that no one is above the law. His comments highlighted the severity of Hunter Biden’s actions, contrary to the sympathetic narrative often promoted by the Biden Administration.

Inside the jury room, deliberations revealed an initial split among jurors. However, after thorough discussions of each crime’s elements, they reached a unanimous verdict. Some jurors felt they had no choice but to find Hunter Biden guilty, with one describing the case as a waste of taxpayer dollars—a sentiment that resonates with many critics of the administration.

Despite the serious nature of the crimes, some jurors expressed sympathy for Hunter Biden, focusing on the evidence rather than his lifestyle. This perspective further fuels the narrative of leniency and misplaced compassion often seen in cases involving politically connected individuals.

In a public display of support, President Joe Biden was seen hugging his son Hunter upon arriving at the Delaware Air National Guard Base, mere hours after the guilty verdict was announced. This embrace, captured on video, underscores the President’s unwavering support for his embattled son, even as public trust in his administration continues to erode.

Senate Republicans were quick to react, asserting that the guilty verdict shows the justice system worked, despite persistent claims of selective prosecution. Senators John Thune, Rick Scott, and Josh Hawley emphasized that the case against Hunter Biden followed existing law, in stark contrast to what they see as politically motivated charges against former President Donald Trump. This highlights the perceived double standards within the justice system under the Biden Administration.

A juror later revealed that the jury focused on evidence, not Hunter Biden’s lifestyle, during deliberations. This approach, while legally sound, does little to quell public outrage over the apparent disparity in how justice is administered to those with political connections.

In conclusion, Hunter Biden’s conviction is a stark reminder of the corruption and legal breaches rampant within the Biden family. The President’s continued support for his son, coupled with the leniency of the justice system, only serves to deepen public disillusionment with the current administration.

Israeli Forces Rescue Hostages from Hamas Terrorists in Dramatic Operation


On Monday, Israeli forces released dramatic video footage showing the daring rescue of four hostages held by Hamas terrorists in Gaza over the weekend. This footage, captured from helmet cameras of Yamam and Shin Bet’s operational units, as well as Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers, showcases the meticulous and courageous efforts in Nuseirat, a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

In a simultaneous operation at two locations, Yamam and Shin Bet operatives engaged in combat with Hamas terrorists to rescue the hostages. Noa Argamani, 26, was rescued at one site, while Shlomi Ziv, 41, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Almog Meir Jan, 22, were freed from another location.

Footage obtained by Fox News Digital shows Yamam officers and Shin Bet operatives storming the location where Ziv, Kozlov, and Jan were held. They are later seen boarding a helicopter, being flown back to Israel to safety.

All four hostages were abducted from a desert rave near the border during Hamas’s brutal and unprovoked assault on Israel on October 7. This rescue operation was part of a broader Israeli air and ground offensive in central Gaza, which health officials claim resulted in the deaths of 274 Palestinians. This comes at a critical juncture in the eight-month conflict as Israel and Hamas weigh a U.S. proposal for a cease-fire and the release of the remaining captives.

Hamas and other militants killed approximately 1,200 people in the October 7 attack and captured around 250 others, including men, women, children, and older adults. Since then, the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza claims nearly 37,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s ground offensive. It is important to note that Hamas does not distinguish between fighters and civilians in its reports.

Israel has contested these figures, emphasizing that its soldiers are specifically targeting Hamas terrorists who deliberately operate within dense urban areas, using civilians as human shields.

More than 100 captives, mostly women and children, were freed in exchange for Palestinians imprisoned by Israel during a weeklong cease-fire in November.

Israeli authorities estimate that Hamas is still holding around 120 hostages, with 43 pronounced dead. The remaining survivors include about 15 women, two children under the age of 5, and two men in their 80s.

This heroic rescue operation underscores the ongoing struggle against Hamas’s brutal tactics and the lengths to which Israeli forces will go to protect and rescue their citizens.

Vice President Kamala Harris mourned the death of the Hamas members killed in the raid.
