10 Ways To Prep For Survival Without Spending Money

Learning how to use these items in a survival situation, and then actually practicing to use those items, will pay off long-term.

4. Set aside cash. Think of it as saving money rather than spending it. Over the course of a long-term disaster, you might not be able to access the funds in your bank. Offset this by setting aside a few bills each week into a large jar. You’ll be surprised at how fast it will grow.

5. Build improvised weapons. Survival naturally requires you to be creative, and a major priority in a survival situation is security. Therefore, it makes sense that you may need to get creative in regards to how you defend yourself. Learning how to build improvised weapons, such as a bow and arrow (out of sticks) or a spear (with little more than glass shards and poles) can be a fun activity.

6. Learn advanced first-aid skills. Every injury, no matter how small, requires attention in a survival situation – simply because it can develop into something far worse if it goes untreated. You can learn advanced first-aid skills on your own time without spending any money.

7. Pre-assign survival roles to your family. Everybody in your family, or your entire survival group for that matter, needs to be contributing to your survival efforts. If you pre-assign roles to your family members now, you’ll save a lot of time and confusion when the survival situation actually does occur.

8. Learn how to start a fire without fire-starter. Anybody can take a match or a lighter and get a fire going, but very few can start a fire with two sticks. Learn about the different ways that you can start a fire without fire-starters, and then practice using this method in a safe environment. It will be an incredibly valuable investment of your time.

9. Learn how to mend clothing. Taking care of your clothing will be essential in a long-term survival situation when stores may not be an option. Learning basic knitting or stitching methods will be well worth the effort – and it’s a good way to pass the time when you’re bored.

10. Practice. The old saying goes that practice makes perfect, right? Don’t just learn how to survive. Actually practice what you have learned. While this tip has become a little clichéd in the survival world, it’s still completely relevant.
