When I plan out my survival kit or gear, I think of it in levels. Each level has a purpose and compliments the others. One level of kit has duplicate items as the others so you can resupply your lower level kits or it has more robust items that may weigh heavier and require more logistics.
By learning about what happened, and knowing that history repeats, we can prepare better and avoid making the same mistakes when SHTF again.
I have a tight budget. I’m talking, poverty level budget, and with survival products being over the top expensive, prepping can be really hard.
