Purpose, Core Principles and Our Focus



Frustrated by biased information in the realms of diy, self-sufficiency, off-grid? Ever encounter lists claiming 'the ultimate solutions' that subtly push products for personal gain, or reviews that avoid criticism to keep advertisers happy? At Freecycle USA, we've heard the frustration. Some suppliers brag about their clickbait content and 'impartial' reviews crafted to sway buyers. Here's our commitment: when we recommend something, it's because we've thoroughly researched and believe it's the best. No advertisers, backroom deals, or affiliate links will influence our choices. Ever. Period. Join us for genuine insights into DIY Home and Garden, Off-Grid Living, and Survival categories, where authenticity and quality are our guiding principles.DIY


Core Principles

We hold a deep affection for the products we recommend, as they are not just selections; they are choices we entrust with our lives. Every pick undergoes a meticulous selection process, driven by expert opinions, extensive research, and thorough testing. The result? The Freecycle USA Pick – a seal of assurance that signifies the best choice for most individuals. Our straightforward objective is to discover and articulate the optimal solution, and we remain committed to updating our recommendations over time with the latest information, incorporating feedback, and adapting to product changes.


Our Focus

We prioritize delivering premium content over daily publications. Unlike numerous spam-filled blogs and social media channels churning out daily posts to maximize page views, our commitment is to provide thoughtful, well-crafted content. Many creators resort to hastily generating articles for quick ad revenue, resulting in repetitive and low-quality material. At The Prepared, we take a different approach, concentrating on producing less frequent but meticulously curated content. We invest the time and effort to ensure each piece is valuable, making the process of discerning practical preparedness information simpler for our audience.

Support Us!

Producing top-tier prepper content while ensuring fair compensation for our American contributors comes with a substantial cost. If you appreciate our efforts, here's how you can support us:


Spread the word about The Prepared among your friends, family, and neighbors. Building preparedness in your network is not only beneficial but also strategically wise.


Contribute to our work on Patreon and enjoy exclusive rewards. For instance, you can opt to tip us $1 with each major new review we release. Additional tipping unlocks special privileges, such as voting on upcoming posts and early access to new content.


Make purchases through the links of the products we recommend. When you use our links and complete a purchase within 24 hours, platforms like Amazon recognize our contribution, providing crucial support for our work. Your support means the world to us!

How We Make Money

When you choose to click on a link and purchase a product we recommend, we may earn a referral commission. This is our way of bringing you well-researched, quality content for free, devoid of spammy ads. Rest assured, this won't cost you anything, and your prices remain unaffected. Referral commissions are a common practice by merchants, often unnoticed by consumers.


Importantly, this will never compromise our recommendations. As part of our commitment to transparency, we disclose that we are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites.
