    Still thinking about it...
  1. Well I guess I am the later riser this morning,, I just got up,, but of course I was up until 2:30 this morning,,, canning bing cherries and cantaloupe...LOL . the bug just bit and I had to scratch....
  2. Morning Ladies, got up early this morning, got the back yard mowed and cleaned the kids pool and refilled it, the came in and got ready to go to church, just got back..I just put a load of
  3. Personally, I feel there is no excuse for ignoring something as important as the future health and safety of ones family.....
  4. got 5 gallons of gasoline and dried some chives today,, hope tomorrow to can some bing cherries...
  5. I first started when they were talking about Y2k,, in 1999 I grew the biggest dang garden,, we had 2 acres planted full of beans, corn, tomatoes, etc.. canned and froze everything, then started adding on from there,, I have had my phone service shut off, that is a savings of $30 a month,, Just buy a prepaid phone card for my cell phone, which is $20 a month, and use only when absolutely necessary.. Will be having cable shut off here soon. We don't watch it,That is another $50 savings.. Only run the dryer when absolutely have to, otherwise everything is put on the clothes line to dry.that is a huge savings.. right now not having to run my car too much, just to go get groceries, which the store is nonly a mile away, and sometimes going to the park or the cemetery.. so Put about $40 a month in the car, and usually lasts all month..after putting together what I have save from the electric bill and other savings from the past two months, that gave me $268 extra dollars this month to prep.. this includes also having to start back to school shopping,, the $268 was for preps only......
  6. I started by during Y2k, and had a very good stash, but of course things happen that are unplanned and have to hit my stock a couple of times, so things have dwindled down,,but at least my rotation of food items is up to date..LOL I try to do any where from $25-$100 per month,, but money has been really slow lately, now that I am living off of survivor benefits and not able to work until kids get back in school.. but did have the extra opportunity this month, with careful planning and getting the electric bill way down the past two months,, with what I have saved on the electric bill is what I put back to use for the weeks preps....
  7. Kaye,, the trick to the freezer is,, you catch all the really good meat sales when you can,, and put this stuff in your freezer, and then set aside a day or two and can yourself silly.... that way, you can save a bundle, not having to pay full price for the meat, and then if something did happen to power grids,, you wouldn't be at a full loss....
  8. Went tonight and did some more prepping: 4 lb.nonfat dry milk 2 cake mixes 2 brownie mixes 2 cookie mixes 2 ranch dressing 100 tea bags 3 parmalat milks 4 evaporated milk 1 box buttermilk powder 8 boxes mac and cheese 20 lb sugar 4 lb old fashion oats 1 cocoa powder 4 lbs shortening 2 bottles of vegetable oil pantry is slowly but surely looking better........
  9. Quiltsy, your name has now been officially added to the missing persons list around here.. WHERE ARE YOU??? Let us know your alright...
  10. (((((Phatkat))))), sometimes even though, you don'twant to send someone to a nursing home,, it can end up being the best thing for them.. I didn't want my mother sent to one, but the therapy and medications etc, was just way to overwhelming to be done at home, so we put her in one..she did well while in the nursing home, but when we brought her home, she would get worse... she was more comfortable knowing if she had a medical emergency in the middle of the night, the doctors and nurses were right there.. At first we didn't understand it,, but then sat back and thought about.. now there are times I wonder if maybe if I had place my dh in one,,maybe he would still be with us,, he also starved himself to death.. It isn't easy to watch.It has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to witness in my life,,, If they can't find a vein, to place tubing in for her feedings, they can go through her side... so check that out, if she is willing to be tube fed... This is a hard call to make, and there will be feelings of sadness and feelings of guilt,, just remember,your doing all you can do, the one thing she needs from you now,, Is for you to be there with her, and let her know that she is loved , and not a burden..... We are all here for you,, we love you and will be praying...
  11. BLACK BEANS,,"POOR MAN'S FOOD",, have you seen the price on those suckers,, you have to be a rich man to afford them.. not cheap like pintos, blackeyes, and great north...
  12. I see great minds are thinking a like today, it was freezer/meat stocking day for me also. I haven't had the opportunity to do any stocking over the past couple of months,, but did sit aside $140, to do so this month, and I feel I did really well.. Here is what I got: 5 chuck roasts 5 for $17.00=$3.40 each 8 lb ground beef 1.49lb 6 lb. weinees $6.00 6 lb bologna (rolls)$7.00 3-20ct. pks. sausage biscuits $6.00 20 lbs. chicken .43 cents lb. (that's cheap here) 22 lbs. bacon,$1.00 per lb. 2 loaves of bread (for freezer) 3 ketchup (pantry) 3 mayonnaise (pantry) 6 lb. cheeses slices. and of course there were a few things like a box of corn dogs, a package of chicken tenders and 8 2-liter bottles of cola... I do feel some better, was getting worried .....
  13. yes they have at least 3 more ready for launch possibly more, they said that they are short- medium range and possibly another long range missile.. check out cnn.com or foxnews.com and also there is another website that has alot of good information on all that is going on. I am not a member of this site, but do lurk daily to check out things.. it is Timebomb2000.com...
  14. I sat down this morning, actually all day today, and put together a binder with lists for 6 months stock up..also added some recipes such for homemade tortillas and short breads etc. then did a budget... I hope anything bad that may happen such as NK or the bird flu, holds off for a few months. i am hoping to return to work next month or do those cna courses.. so that will help me be able to pay down some bills.. So getting out of debt and adding more preps is top priority here right now......
  15. Combine your beans and rice with some smoked sausages and a little cajun spice, and have a really good meal... something different, but delicious I fix this quite often....
