Default Cheap supplies at Aldi (price match at Wal-Mart)

I dont know about the Aldi where other people live but the one close to me right now has sugar for .99 cents, flour for .49 cents, eggs for .29 cents and milk for .99 cents. The Aldi here is about 35 min away but our Wal-Mart is price matching the prices so I am out to get about 10 bags of flour and sugar each and several dozen egs and about 3 gallons milk. My freezer will be full of milk and flour for awhile and I will have to get some more containers to store the sugar and the flour after it comes out of the freezer but this is a deal that is to good to pass up. You all might want to check your closest Aldi to see if they have these prices also. Good time to stock up on essentials. I was also told that eggs freeze well so I might give that a try also. For .29 cents it is worth it to try!!!

Dd you raw pack your meat? I raw pack my meat and do not add any water or broth as it makes its own. If you can cooked meat you do need to add juice or water or broth.

I boiled the chicken and added bullion and other seasonings, then canned the chicken in the same water.

I'm just getting started with prepping, always had a full pantry and freezer but never any serious long term items. Hit up the dollar store tonight for some random items (toothpaste, salt, sardines, paper towels, dog treats, baking powder) and stopped off for some shot gun shells (didn't realize how expensive ammo has gotten).

Picked up 2 ammo cans of 1000 rds of .223 for $369 each + tax, best deal I have seen on AR ammo in a while, plus the ammo cans. Granted one of them I picked up for my folks, but nice to add some more ammo. I think I am almost comfortable with the ammo I have on hand, until we buy our house.

FINALLY finished processing the deer my nephew took on Sunday. Meat is canned, vaccum-packed and in the freezer, tallow is hardening, and the 13 pounds of jerky is sealed and ready for school lunches for the next couple months. I traded some farrier work for the help repairing my upper dam last fall--fianlly paid that debt back so now all my work will be for something new (though I love the upper pond so I can't complain).

Wow Jeans - those are amazing prices! Our Aldi's doesn't have anything close. But I did stock up on cauliflower (99 cents a huge head) and a few other good bargains. Also, today I received my indoor composter (hope it works lol), and the Carla Emery book, and made an appointment with a chimney guy to see if our old chimney can be relined and made safe for a wood burner.

Went hunting today with my new pack on my back. Loaded with around 20# in it. Felt good. Most I hiked in a while so my back is pretty tight but nothing a hot shower cant cure. Also printed up maps (NYNJ Trail Conference and Topo) of my new hunting area. We lucked out. Got ~90 private acres backing up to a 4,000+ acre state forest!

Got my phone line fixed at last. Yippppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. At the end we didn't even have broad band - major depression followed. It was a cable rubbed and caught at the top of the telephone pole which should have been done last week but atleast its been done today. Sigggggggggggggghhhhhhhhh with relief.

Had a tooth out on Monday, the huge hole is still healing and if anyone says you can work after that then they are kidding themselves. Today is the first day I feel somewhat human and I still wont be able to eat properly for some time, you can't talk properly either.

Made some more toys, did a horse and unicorn this time from a free pattern of a horse on line.

http://www.jeangreenhowe.com/Images/...ut-diagram.gif

It wont print properly so I just copied off the screen at 400% zoom with tracing paper and a pencil. It makes a very nice little horse. If you make it up like the pattern of the Dachshund I put in the DIY section (making stuffed toys) then you can follow the ones for this. I just used ribbon with tassels for the mane and tail afterwards.

Dealing with the sub-zero temperatures and toothache very well, I am stronger then I thought.

Picking up some 5 Gal buckets for food storage and water filtration setup.

It aint much; every little bit makes me feel a small amount better, though.

I have never had canned mackeral before. I went to Walmart to buy some canned meats and thought I would consider it. I love fresh mackeral. I love canned salmon. Imagine my surprise when I found canned salmon at Walmart was over $3.50 a can! The mackeral was $1.25 a can. Now I need to find some good recipes for canned mackeral. I wonder if I added and egg and spices to it and formed it into patties dipped in oatmeal and then fried it.

Just bought a Sig Sauer P290 RS. Can't pick it up until Saturday, probably can't shoot it until next year but it's still a sweet buy and I'll love it all the more when I can shoot it!
