I live real close to the Mexican border. While that usually elicits questions about the dangers of the drug cartels coming over the border, that’s not something I worry a whole lot about. The cartels are smart enough to know that Texans believe in concealed carry, so chances are that if they tried to start a firefight here, they’d get more than they bargained for.
But living so close to Mexico has its benefits — like giving me another source for my survival supplies. While there is little you can buy in Mexico that isn’t available in the United States, there are a number of things that are more readily available. Not only that, but some things are considerably cheaper in Mexico than they are in the United States. So with some careful buying in Mexico, I can make my prepping budget go considerably farther than buying here at home.
I would say that the number one reason to go to Mexico for your supplies is to stock up on antibiotics. Here in the U.S., you have to have a prescription to buy them. But most antibiotics are available over the counter in Mexico. Not only that, but you can buy them in bottles of 100, and the price will be much lower than it is here at home.
