I sold both a dining set and a refrigerator I no longer was using! Good day for my wallet. Got a spare parts kit for a P220. Probably spend the evening stripping and reassembling my cap guns.

Today I visited the local surplus store. Purchased large ammo can to store more 5.56mm, more SKS stripper clips, and some trip wire (used for mechanical and utility purposes, not booby traps!).

I bought about seven pounds of hot sausage on clearance (99 cents/pound). I tried to get the meat manager to match the price on the sweet Italian sausage that was also on it's last day, but he said he couldn't do it - that stuff sells, apparently.

Picked up 2 #10 cans of garbanzo beans and 20# of parboiled rice at Costco, and 10# more of frozen veggies to dehydrate. Got another free flashlight from Harbor Freight, and added a few more small bills to our home cash stash. Interesting conversation overheard at the bank - the teller asked a depositor if she wanted any cash back, and the lady told her no, she never uses cash.

Got a gift card to Target for my b-day, figured I'd stop by and pick up some goods.

The real score was this Fiskars Poly Fiber trowel that I picked up for $1.29! These things range from 5-10 dollars at hiking stores so to get one for so cheap made the whole trip worth it. I needed a good digging tool for my BOB so this will be the one. Also got a $1 LED flashlight that is easily as bright as my coleman.

Picked up the 200 rounds of 5.56 sitting in my breezeway. A big thanks to the person here that posted the deal online...I got my order in just before they ran out it seems!

I recieved:

2 Swetshirt hoodie jackets
1 very large Dog Encyclopedia
1 Pet first aid kit

The later I got after watching this video:

I just need to add a few bits as it is very basic. I need to watch her second part to this video on suggestions but I will put in here as well:

Yesterday I found a Ferret toy pattern (see thread in the DIY section on Stuffed Animal How tos) so I hope to make that up in a few days.

two 100lb propane canisters and gas for them, for the tri-fuel generator. Free box of 500 22 caliberLR from my uncle. Sent for 2 magazines for the S&W semi and an ar15 repair kit. Looking into the Watchmen of PA for a safety in numbers thing since most people I know think I am over reacting.

Every week I buy a little extra food for the pantry.
Every month I buy more ammo.
Every two months, I go to the LDS Pantry and stock up on long term food supplies.
When I can, I buy a tool. Next is the Wonder Junior Grain Mill

We need to concentrate more on commodities like TP and soap.

Started some rhubarb seeds. I made a thread to keep track of my progress.

The last few days I've been incorporating Kale into my diet. I've come up with two recipes for it that are very easy and cheap to make, and yet are filling and delicious! I also had leeks today for the first time. Went very well with the kale! It's always a good prep trying out new foods, especially a "superfood" like kale.

I think I'm due for another trip to the LDS and I've been working on getting together 10 more 5 gallon buckets.

What do you usually get at LDS? I always get a case of dried milk and one of apples. They are the best price I've found. They like that I'll do a box of apples but only take 6. Usually the 9 extras are gone from the shelf before I leave.

Cooked, divided, and froze a big batch of Italian Sunday gravy and chili. Did it all with the pressure cooker instead of simmering for 8 hours like I normally do. Turned out great. Family is set for red sauce and chili for awhile.
