What are the things you want to add to your preps that you just haven't found at a good price yet? What are some holes that need to be filled in your preps? Write them all down.

On the weekends, scour your local papers, Facebook groups, or online listings to find yard sales, estate sales, and thrift stores in your area. Armed with your list, go on a prepper's treasure hunt.

Some things we've picked up for a dime are:

Old kerosene lamps
Camping supplies
Solar lights
Cast iron cookware
Camp stoves
A sturdy antique washboard

You get the idea - and the best thing of all is that you can get them for a fraction of the price of a new item.
