I stopped by the thrift store that I haunt and found enough soap making supplies to start making soap postSHTF. There is $170.49 including tax worth of stuff and I paid $59.06 for everything.

The problem is I can not keep it I am sending to my liberal DS in FL. DS is one of crafty kinds of people and see is molding soap and selling it or at least trying to. I like thrift stores you never know what one can find in one.

I, too, love thrift stores and garage sales. Thanks Paw, for the heads up. I will see what I can find. I make soap and this would be great.

Glad you are happy with your purchase. The deals a person can find at thrift stores, flea mkts, and yard sales are simply amazing.
