Prison is definitely not a happy place. Given the fact that you are locked up in a facility with plenty of others doing time, who have all committed some type of crime that might just rival yours, it is obviously not somewhere you want to land yourself. But not only is your physical freedom taken away – so are a lot of other things.
No longer are you able to eat exactly what you want at any point of the day, nor do you have nearly the amount or quality of items that you may have previously owned. Everything is stripped down in prison, and as such, there are a few pointers you can overlook in case you happen to be making a 6-month pit stop there, or you think that it’s a possibility in the future (which it always could be for any one of us!)
Regardless of the reason that you’re in prison, knowing a few tips before you head in can be incredibly beneficial, These hacks can be also be useful in any survival situation, too. It typically isn’t realized just how much of your freedom is taken away when you’re behind bars or when SHTF, so retaining information early on will make it a much easier experience – especially when it comes to food preparation and the very limited resources you have in that department.
Read on to pick up a few prison tricks, and save yourself the weeks of trying to figure out how to cook noodles without a bowl.
