    Got robbed a few years back. Lost alot of stuff. Moved for work, Little kids are grown up, rent in the burbs now, no bugout place, etc. Starting over as an oldster, "retired". Any recommendations for 'senior' prepper sites, local eqpt sources, share gardens, the usual stuff. Not very affluent. No bunker in the backyard. Fast traffic and no real sidewalks or bike paths to the store either. Fairly heat tolerant. Things seem different now. Tks.

    For food preps, what we did was to add just a few cans each week to our grocery shopping. After a few years, we made enough of a stockpile for nearly a years worth of food. Just do things slowly so you don't feel it in your wallet.
    Make sure to get a way to filter water. You can live for weeks with no food, but only 3 days without water.

    That’s exactly what we do.

    When we go to the store to buy ingredients for the stuff we eat often, we buy a few extra of it.

    To your point, it’s easier to build this way without shocking your wallet.

    And it also ensures the stuff we’re stockpiling is stuff we actually eat.
