    Hi
    Im in MA and was introduced to the topic by my Mum last week
    As one can guess im a bit overwhelmed by all the info and opinions out there
    However my initial plan is simple:
    Develop a 3mth supply
    Take 1st camping trip and try to learn and use the survival skills needed instead of just buying the book to keep in case......lol
    Rework my budget to accommodate a long term prep plan

    any advice is welcome
    im on a super limited budget and cannot afford costly errors

    :welcome: There are many of us here that work with a small budget or have lived frugally all their lives. The only difference between you and us is the fact that we've been doing it so long. Small steps is the only way to go. The fact that you are aware of the possibility that things may not be going so well is a large step and one that the majority of people are not even willing to consider. The next large step you can take that won't break the budget; learn to garden. Seeds are on clearance right now if they haven't sold out in your area. Poke around here for lots of other ideas and don't be afraid to ask a "stupid" question. There aren't any. :wave:

    Welcome, we have always had to be frugal. I stock my food supplies from my garden, hunting and our chickens. Other supplies I find mostly at thrift shops and yard sales. Good luck.
