Hmmm – too many things to list. However, in my shopping trips I’ve started going immediately to the “markdown” sections of all stores first. Almost every trip I find something that I need that is in a torn package or dented box that I get for cheaper. Add frequent trips to the local Thrift Stores and Goodwill and you can easily find many items for very cheap – even stuff us preppers really need – packs, candles, lanterns, hand tools, winter clothes, books, etc. etc. etc….If you haven’t been to a local thrift store make it a point to do so – you’re money will go so much further and you’ll quickly start acquiring the things you need much faster.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
