O, and if a situation X striped you of your financial security, what would you do?

A friend of mine runs a primitive skills survival school. He produces how to vids and holds classes across several states. You can find the vids and some free info by googling pathfinders. He is pretty busy but if you FB him, and add your questions to the strings there he still tries to answer as many as he has time for. Email is out of the question. I met him way back before all the circus started. He knows how to get people up to speed with just the basics and very little money.

Coupons, thrift shops, craigslist, yard sales.... so many treasures out there. Not many are in a position to purchase huge quantities of anything but in small amounts it can be done. If you need a high ticket item then look around at what you have, is there something you can sell? I have made hundreds selling stuff (junk) so I can purchase what I need. Thrift shops have sales, and you can always make an offer at a yard sale, paying asking price at a yard sale is something I rarely do. If you have 8 dollars in coupons for groceries, take that saved 8 dollars and buy food to store.
As said above...learn, read and always test out what you learn. Starting a fire with a flint is harder then it looks.
