  1. Safeway Prep Deals for 10/26 Sorry I’m not putting direct coupon matchups for this. I’m running behind and have a craptonne of stuff to do today, but I wanted to get the basics done. There is a lot of meat on sale this week at Safeway, great for you home canners. Round Steak is $2.49/lb Split Chicken Breasts $.99/lb-haven’t seen these that cheap in awhile Pork Shoulder Blade Roast $1.99/lb Safeway BLSL Chicken Breaksts in 4 lb bag $1.79/lb General Mills Cold cereal $1.99, multiple coupons out there (some people do it, pls put the cereal debate elsewhere) Refreshe Water 24 pack, 16.9 o
  2. Walmart (at least ours) won't PM the Safeway coupon because you need a club card, and they don't PM anything that needs a club card or "membership". The Wishbone salad dressing is also on sale this week.
  3. Your prices have me wondering if mine are an accurate representation in the other thread. 25 pounds of whole wheat flour can only be purchased in 5 pound bags here-at almost $6 a bag. 5 pound bag of sugar is around $4.00 Pinto beans are more here, too, which is kind of surprising considering that we are a predominately hispanic area. I would think there would be more demand, thus more supply, thus lower price. I see Christy is seeing the same issues. Mo7
  4. Which is kind of ironic because Kroger family stores are all over the Extreme Couponing show. Most of these are reasonable. One coupon for item purchased-well, yes, any other use is fraud. Their double coupon policy is reasonable-and in fact generous, given that many chains are not doubling at all. Two internet coupons per manufacturer per day is also reasonable, since there is a limit on how many you can legally print. Blurry etc coupons is also reasonable. There are a lot of people "making their own" coupons out there, and this is an attempt to stop that. The only par
  5. Hey all, I'm looking at long term water solutions. We do have water somewhat near us-we would need to haul it but that could be achieved. We have both a pond and a river. In a perfect world I will be sinking cisterns and storing water there, but for the long run I will still need to purify water. I'm looking at the Berkey systems and wondering how long their filters last. Anyone know? We are a family of six, plus critters. Thanks Mo7
  6. Hey that's FANTASTIC! I'm so happy your savings were that great!
  7. -Bought a Brita water filter. I know it's not a long term solution but it certainly helps in that direction. -Started thinking about what would go on a list of long term storage needs, and how best to deal with those, and what kinds of storage. Have it narrowed down to BOB/SIP kit 3 Mos No Job 3 Mos TEOTWAWKI 6 Mos No Job 6 Mos TEOTWAWKI 12 Mos No Job 12 Mos TEOTWAWKI Difference in No Job vs TEOTWAWKI is that no job I'm hoping we'd be able to swing power, as opposed to a complete interruption of services. So I can use my freezers and conventional cooking methods. -Gave
  8. I would love it-not everyone has the same needs that we do. And I prep with the sales, but I want this list to be kind of timeless, so putting in that I bought veggies for the dehydrator because they were on sale is, well, not timeless LOL. Plus it helps others to determine their own personal priorities if they can see what other folks determine to be priorities. Glad y'all are finding it useful. Mo7

  10. At Walmart, in the toy section, are some glowsticks, with the el cheapo toys. They are $1.00 each. I have used them to fill out party goody bags or a bag of small gifts for a kiddo. I can buy a glow stick, a slinky, and a paddle ball or punch balloon, plus a bag for it all to go in, for $5.00 or so, so I will do that for bday parties when money is tight. I think Oriental Trading also has them, certainly around this time of year.

  13. Hi everyone. I’m going to resurrect the $10.00 and $20.00 per week prep threads-I think they would be really useful with updated prices and links to products. These will be based on the food calculator here, and are for my family of six-two adults, one 12 year old boy who eats like an adult, and three kids at home. I’ll build for that core group first. A note on this: I fully believe that you can’t prep to your best advantage if you are not home canning and/or dehydrating. If you don’t have a canner and/or dehydrator, put aside half of the prep budget each week to buy them. Or
