Went to the local grocery store and picked up 25 four gallon food grade buckets with lids.....Free....Just for the asking.

When asked what they were for I told them they were for a Church food storage program.

Well, I've been trying to watch for the sales this year. They are not near as prevalent or generous as in the past.

I saw candles at Wally World at 50% off. Last year it was 75%. It also appears the WW has widened the aisles and generally just has less in their stores.

Many of the basic foods still seem to be a good deal. We, well I, got into a good discussion with the neighbors at a Christmas party. The discussion was about hard times and how "now" was the time to store up some extra food. We older generations understood. It was the 20-30 crowd that had children who said we were scaring them. They had never really thought about storing up things like beans and lentils, split pea etc.

Maybe the discussion did some good.

Anyway, if no one is aware of good deals out there on prep items maybe it will be time to shut this sticky down.

I have heard that bedding items are generally a good buy after Christmas. You know, comforters, blankets etc

There are usually January 'white' sales on sheets, towels, etc. Haven't really seen any so far this year. If you are able to get some cheap white sheets they are good to make bandages with.

Candles are a really great idea. I buy them all of the time and you can even get some el-cheapo ones at garage sales!! I am also stocking up on waterproof matches and regular matches!!!
Now, the Lord did not tell me to specifically keep a stock of newspaper, but I have loads of it and old newspaper could be very useful for many things. I just felt in my spirit to do this.
You may want to get a camping can opener-the one that requires human hand power. These can be found for .99 cents at places like WallyWorld or Academy Sports and Outdoors.
My family and I have been stocking up on medicines for a long time and the WalMart in our town will often times mark certain ones down real cheap and I swoop them up!
For those of you that hunt, what do you think of stocking up on ammo? My family thinks I am worrying too much, but I want to be prepared!!!! I told them if not so much to help ourslves, but to help those "others" in our families who will not be prepared!!

I went to Wally World yesterday. Wow, what a change. It almost looked like a K-Mart. Wide empty aisles, nothing stockpiled, or set up for movement.

I think the time for good deals may be coming to a close.

Have been stocking up on Grabill Country canned meats. They are supposed to be good for at least 5 years.

Question

Dear Gibby62

Have you opened a can and tasted the Graybill Country meats? Also, are they packaged with nitrates/nitrites? Thanks....

No, only good stuff in the cans. Haven't tasted them yet (they're in my storage cache). Have a couple of samplers on the way (5 cans: chicken, turkey, pork, beef, ground beef) that I will test. They have had good reviews (like they would show the bad).

gibby, thanks for the referral. I wrote them and no additives, just
meat, salt and pepper.

I also like Amish Yoder's canned meat. They have canned sausage,
jerky and bacon.

I'm going to get BPA free tuna from
