Many people struggle to pay their bills each month, so the thought of prepping to face a disaster is almost laughable. How can one afford to stockpile food and water when they have a hard time meeting the bare necessities of life already?
Thankfully, there are a few ways anyone can prepare for an emergency while spending little to no money.
As the video shows, you can develop survival skills at relatively no cost to you. These skills will provide you with a foundation to build off of and help you survive. Best of all, the knowledge and abilities you learn last forever. Fancy gear and stockpiles of food may be great, but they can become compromised. Knowledge will last as long as you do.
Fitness and health are important to our survival; someone in good overall health is likely going to survive longer than someone who is out of shape. There are plenty of at-home fitness options to keep yourself in shape:

Diet and nutrition play a crucial role in your health as well. Eat healthily and exercise to stay in tip-top shape.
It costs nothing to recycle or upcycle items. Learning how to reuse items creatively, in different ways than their intended purpose, is a vital skill for any survivalist to develop. For example, water or milk jugs can easily be repurposed to hold other liquids, likely water. Even old tires can be upcycled for survival.
You can also test your survival skills at home. To prepare for a grid-down situation, for example, simply turn your power off and see how long you can last before turning it back on. As an added bonus, doing this will cut down on the power bill a bit.
