    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A heads up to all who it concerns. Walmart is running Ball mason pint jars for $5 a case. The lids and rims are worth $5 alone. I've never seen canning items during Black Friday, but I'm happy. Stack'em up!

    A small market/grocery store in my area is going out of business after almost 30 years. It is sad to see it go, but they were having a all-must-go sale this week. I found some great prep items on the cheap. First thing to catch my eye was a commercial grade food shelf. This thing is tough...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I tend to frequent Thrift Stores a couple of times a week. You never know what you'll find, and at a pretty good price. I did a search of this topic and found one hadn't been done. (If so I apologize). I for one like to explore and "hunt" for stuff that others think is junk and I don't want...
