12 Ways to Prepare for Economic Collapse

Most people think that money will lose its value when SHTF. They may be right, but then again, they may not.

No one can really say what the future will be like when the unthinkable happens. But if there’s one thing we know as preppers, it’s that we should always hope for the best but plan for the worst.

Planning for economic collapse is a different type of disaster preparedness, but it is no less important. Here are a few ways you can set aside resources and prepare for the unthinkable disaster of economic collapse.

We All Need Asset Protection


Since our nation’s motto has become WHEN IN DOUBT – SUE…

Honest people with assets are at greater risk of incurring a lawsuit than ever before – a consequence of so many of our fellow citizens being infected with a strong sense of entitlement.

That, combined with greedy out-of-control lawyers who make big bucks for suing at the drop of a hat, spells danger to you even if your assets are relatively modest.

Asset protection is going "mainstream" thanks to the wide range of inexpensive new tools and techniques.  Find the tools everyday folks can use to protect themselves here:


3 Survival Tools Hiding in Your Home

·         Tuna-can emergency light:  Stab a small hole in the top of a can of oil-packed tuna, and roll a 2x5 inch piece of newspaper into a wick to absorb the oil, then light with a match – it will burn for about two hours and you can still eat the tuna.

·         Bra-cup debris mask [I wrote a variation of this two years ago in the our bulletin]…useful when confronted with a smoky room.  Cover your face with a bra cup to keep the particles from entering your lungs.  Use the straps to secure it to your face.

·         Lip Balm Space Heater:  Trapped in a snow-bound auto without heat…a burning candle can raise the heat level of your car a few degrees.  Using a cotton string from a tampon or other source and a paper clip place it into a tube of lip balm.  Light the wick and it can burn for hours.  Keep the plastic tube from catching fire by slowly twisting out the balm as the wick burns down.  I tried this with dental floss and it worked well too.

I just spent $30 on apples at Whole Foods and then I dropped both of them!


USDA launched its FoodKeeper mobile app, which contains specific guidance on more than 400 food and beverage items, including safe cooking recommendations for meat, poultry and seafood products. The app provides information on how to store food and beverages to maximize their freshness and quality.


We Negotiate

There was a time when I never would have questioned a bill from any professional. Whether it was the lawyer doing our wills or a plumber fixing a toilet, whatever they asked for I paid. No more! Recently, we went to have our wills updated with some minor changes. I was surprised at the bill and couldn't help but ask about it. He adjusted it down and didn't seem surprised by my questioning it. Now I feel free to ask about any bill. Sometimes I get a reduction and sometimes I don't. Either way, I've decided it can't hurt to ask!



How to Make an Effective Consumer Complaint
I need to learn how to make an effective consumer complaint. It seems like products always fail shortly after the warranty expires, or the services promised aren't delivered. Is there any way to get companies to do what's right? I'd love to find a way to complain that would get results.

Summer Kitchen Energy Efficiency
Summer is on the way and that means it's time to look around the house to find frugal and creative ways to reduce the cost of staying cool. If you begin your search in the kitchen, you will discover numerous ways to save money on your electric bill and quite possibly on your grocery bill. Read more.


Protect yourself (and your belongings) by completing a full home inventory and updating it annually. You can use this free, home inventory list printable to get the job done.
