Guest Post alert on being a prepper/preparedness or what we’re calling #PrepperFI (thanks @Military_Dollar on Twitter for that one).
I’m still on vacation but had the opportunity to write this post for Angela at Tread Lightly, Retire Early before I set off and it just dropped today.
It’s part of her sustainability series, but it’s a different take on sustainability.
This is more focused on how me and my family have become more focused on sustainability as a means to prepare ourselves for the future and some sort of “doomsday” scenario (or dystopian trickle).
I also talk a bit about how our focus on preparedness has better equipped our family financially.
I hope you’ll check it out and maybe considering adding a bit of #PrepperFi to your financial independence toolkit. Being prepared for lots of scenarios is part of financial preparedness. For us, the big part of being generally prepared was becoming financially stable and eventually, financially independent.
