Of course there will be another doomsday prediction before we know it. And equally predictable will be the reactions to it.
But as much as I hate to say it, the next few months is going to be a great time to pick up some preps on the cheap.
There’s a bunch of folks out there that bought into nothing other than the Mayan Apocalypse hype and don’t really have any concept of general preparedness.
Some of them will move on towards a life of preparedness beyond the panic brought on by doomsday talk.
Most of them won’t. Just like when Y2K came and went, the disaster didn’t happen and people went back to their old lives.
And lots of them regretted spending a bunch of cash on preps. So they decided to try to cash in on it by selling stuff.
This is going to happen again. It’s inevitable.
So keep an eye on eBay, keep an eye on Craigslist, and listen to people talking. You’ll find all sorts of stuff that you didn’t expect.
Unfortunately one thing you won’t find for a while is firearms related items, whether guns, parts, ammo, mags, and so on. Thanks to the current political climate for that, but there’s nothing you can do about it.
In closing, make sure you’ve got a good list of things you’d like to pick up, and keep an eye open and you’ll find a few things here and there. And chances are you’ll save some good money.
Don’t feel bad about it. Honestly, someone’s going to get the good deal, so it might as well be you.
Besides, maybe you’ll get a chance to educate folks on panic free preparedness instead of doomsday focused prepping.
