Yes, I know it is only the middle of July but I’ve already seen a few back to school sales starting up. These sales are great places to pick up some prepping supplies.
For example, Menards has backpacks for $0.99-3.99 (after rebate). While these aren’t quite as robust as a hiking pack, they’ll do the job well for bug out kits for the kids. You can’t hardly go wrong with a $4 backpack.
As we get closer to fall, you’ll see things like juice boxes and other school lunch type things go on sale. These are great for stocking up the pantry as well as putting in your various survival kits.
Of course, these sales are also great for stocking up on, well, school supplies! Notebooks, pencils, pens, all that fun stuff. I’ll admit I’m kind of an office supply junkie and love picking up these sort of items at great prices.
When you’re shopping around to stock up on prepping supplies, sometimes you need to think outside the box a bit. Pay close attention to your sale flyers and take advantage of great prices when and where you can.
