I will be on the lookout for that! Now that I saw this book on Frugal Living, I want to get that book, but I should finish what I, I'll be good.

I often use this trick where you email companies and they will send you coupons. Some are cool and will mail out coupons that prove to be helpful. Bumblebee tuna is freaking generous. 4 coupons that don't expire till 2013. Sometimes you have to complain to get the coupons, but that is where I can be best at. :D

just a reminder that this topic cycles often on the boards. there is a section at the top of one of the main pages with important links.... links to discussions which come up again and again and have been combined for usefulness. Check out that section (important links) and look for the frugal topics such as "$5 preps" Thrift store prepping and the like. you will find loads of good ideas and systems to use to get a good store of preps on a budget.

heres the link for easy referral

America is extremely wasteful. America waste as much as many countries use. Being able to use what others are wasting can save a bunch of money. I've been to places in Peru that a piece of cardboard is always used for something.

I almost never buy new clothes, we get clothes handed down by friends, or pick them up at yard sales and such. Our local Boy Scout Troop has an annual yard sale, great spot to pick up the next size clothes for my ever-growing son. I also find great stuff at the thrift stores, books for our homeschool library, nice clean wool blankets for our emergency gear, a dehydrator! My husband has been wanting a dremal for a while, but I didn't want to spend the money, last month I found one at a yard sale with all the little attachments at an amazing price, then got the woman to take $5 less 'cause it was all I had on me at the time!

Although not as good as Amy Daczyn's books, or the links posted above, a friend of mine gave me: Shameless Shortcuts: 1,027 Tips and Techniques That Help You Save Time, Save Money, and Save Work Every Day! edited by Fern Marshall Bradley and the Editors of "Yankee Magazine."

I think it's still in print. Came off the remainders table, so maybe not.

Also, though not strictly a "Prep/Survival" book, it is lifestyle-related.

[methmom, I don't think this is in the $5 Preps Sticky, but I could be mistaken.]
