(I will be reviewing books as I read them this year. I have either purchased these myself or were given them for review. As always, I have affiliate links attached to this post to help make a little extra for my family and support this blog.)
I have been working through my stack of prepping books to be read. The Penny-Pinching Prepper: Save More, Spend Less and Get Prepared For Any Disaster by Bernie Carr has been one of the best comprehensive preparedness books I have read in a long time.
Truth be told, I usually go for specific preparedness topics in my reading because I always need to learn more. However, this caught my eye because it was frugally minded and written by a fellow blogger. We bloggers usually like to support each other whenever possible.
I started this book and could not believe all the information inside this book! She literally covers it all! Every area of prepping is covered in this book with tips, tricks, and ideas for being as frugal as possible. It is like she took everything you had printed off, written down, or had kept in your head and put the information in a book.
In this book, Bernie gives you the instructions for making a water filter with five-gallon buckets. She gives you tips for using common household items as first aid solutions. She gives you the instructions on how to make emergency lamps out of things you have in your home. She gives you cleaning recipes to use for things you have on hand. She will tell you how to build food storage on $10 a week. She has it all in this book!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone to read, practice, and keep in their reference library. It is a handy size for keeping in your bug out bag, everyday carry bag, or just your purse.
Bernie Carr is also the Apartment Prepper, a preparedness website and blog, as well as the author of The Prepper’s Pocket Guide.
