The rate of change we're currently experiencing is profound.

 Our standard way of doing things--whether that's conducting business, taking care of our families, or simply getting around our cities--is being turned upside down.

One area of life remains the same however…Prepping!

Prepping can be expensive if you’re buying huge boxes of freeze-dried food and the latest survival gadgets. But if you buy a few small items every week for several years, eventually you’ll have everything you need to survive a disaster (short of something apocalyptic like a nuclear war).

In this article, I’m going to prove my point by listing 50 items for less than $5 each.

If you’re reading this, you probably already know the importance of studying books about emergency preparedness and survival, so I won’t bore you with a long intro about why you should read. Instead, I’ll just briefly explain how I came up with this list.

 Over the past 8 years or so, I’ve read and enjoyed about 1/4 of these books. The ones I haven’t read were either recommended by experts I trust or have at least 4.5 stars on Amazon with at least 20 reviews (as of this writing), so you can rest assured that these are all high-quality books.

 For your convenience, I organized the list into the following categories...

The changing tide of human existence is both exhilarating and frustrating. As the world around us evolves, the quality of our lives can be in constant flux. The value of our possessions can rise and fall, the comforts we seek can become out of reach, and the more dangerous parts of our world can become more accessible. In the end, there is a feeling of loss, and a yearning for stability. But there is also a sense of freedom that comes from knowing that we are able to shape our future, and even our destiny.
