Perhaps it’s life in the desert that turns one’s attention toward survival skills (smile). You see, it never rains here, there’s limited natural water resources, and without electricity everyone would die from heat exhaustion. Nevertheless, when is being prepared ever a bad idea?
Preparedness is another way in which my family and I limit our dependence and position ourselves to be a help in times of need. It’s so important that we not live in a state of fear. For this to be a reality, we shun the me-and-mine mentality. We strive to approach life with an open hand toward all and seek to reside in community with like-minded folks.
Frugally Sustainable recognizes that many of us are experiencing financially trying times. Our family knows what it’s like to live on one income in the suburbs. We prioritize preparedness, however it’s not all that we wish it could be. This is why I’m committed to providing ideas for frugally sustainable solutions.
Having resources and knowledge will bring peace and security. Check back often to this page for updated information and links. And as always, please feel free to share your own preparedness/survival ideas in order that we all may learn from each other.
In addition to all of these things listed below, our family has created a backup plan of sorts. You can read about it by clicking this link…
