Donna is giving away a FREE copy of the “Challenge Yourself to Save” chapter from her first book to anyone who asks. No strings attached; No one will try to sell you anything or add you to a mailing list. To get the chapter, just send an email to: SurvivingAndThriving (at) live (dot) com to request it. Tell Donna “The Apartment Prepper sent me.”
