When you are looking to raise money for prepping goods, there are many options available to you. Much of it is going to depend on what you have accessible to you as well as how much you need for the various supplies. It’s good to be creative. Plus, when you have more than one way to raise money, you can use various ideas throughout the year.
Schedule a Yard Sale
Gather up all of the various items throughout your home that you no longer use. Rather than donating them or tossing them to the curb, you can schedule a Yard sale. If you know others, whether they are preppers or not, invite them to the yard sale as well. The more people you have, the easier it will be to garner a large audience.
All of the belongings that you no longer need can be sold – and this can give you a substantial amount of money.
If you don’t want to schedule a yard sale, you can always use websites like eBay as a way of selling off what you no longer want.
Hold a Bake Sale
Churches and other organizations have been successful with bake sales for years. There’s no reason you cannot be as well. Particularly if you are with a group of preppers, get together and decide what it is that you want to bake. Offer it within your community and allow people to donate money for what it is that you have baked.
Many people want to be prepared. You can create a crowd funding campaign online where you ask people to donate to your cause. Let them know what it is that you are going to use the money for and how it can ultimately benefit them. When you have the money to prep more goods, it could end up helping them as well, particularly if there is ever a major incident. They will know that they can turn to you because you will have all of the necessary supplies.
You may be surprised by how many people know nothing (or very little) about prepping. It’s possible to hold workshops and charge a small fee. These can be offered in your local area or online. Either way, the money that you raise can be put to good use to prep more goods. Even if you don’t hold workshops on prepping, tap into some of your other skills.
There are all sorts of ways to raise money. Get creative and home into the skills that you have. This will make it easier to generate some sort of revenue, which can be used for prepping more goods. You can help the community and ensure that you are well stocked for anything that could happen.
