We canned the last of the carrots, some ham and some sausage. Added four inches of manure to the garden in prep for next season and looked into expanding the chicken run and adding more rain barrels.
Then for fun we went to the local Gun Shop and looked into a Stoeger 12ga. side by side.

I won some money on a sports bet, coincidentally it was the same amount the classes for a "hunter´s degree"(yes, it is the actual name of the permit) costs. With that done I can buy rifles and shotguns for hunting. The money is the bank waiting for the bill...
I procured a source of cheap, organic wheat from a farmer who´s land has NEVER been sprayed with pesticides or chemically fertilized.
Last and least, I got two large(four gallon?) food grade buckets from local resturants.

home canned 7 quarts of chili

bought more cast iron cookware

After running a test batch of dehydrating apples in my home dehydrator I bought lots of dried apples from BulkFoods,com Shipping is free if you buy $75 worth of food - which is very easy to do.

Bought rice, canned fruit, flour and sugar for preps on my weekly grocery store run.

I'm looking into cooking on my wood stove. I have it for heat, it would be very efficient to be able to cook on it too.

Also got 6 more cans of corned beef and a case of tuna.
Am pretty well set on most dried goods and canned goods.

doing what I can on a low budget- picked up some canned ham and canned chicken , added some spices and boiullan cubes from the dollar store, filled some bottles with water. Added some small items to my medical supplies. Told hubby to bring me home from work some containers to store a bit of gas. Socked away some more cash to get a small generator ASAP. Printed out some more instruction sheets on various topics- raising chickens, making your own solar dehydrator, root cellar, etc to go in my survival binder. Started (again) a weight loss and weight-lifting program. And made arrangements to get my first gun.

My "to-get" and "to do" list is much, much bigger than my "have already" list, but I figure preparation will always be an ongoing process and I feel good when I've at least done something, no matter how little.

Just reorganized most of my stockpile to make more room for when I get to do my big grocery shop for the month next week. DH's grandpa got my name for Christmas and I told him I wanted 100 ibs of flour from Sam's Club. He didn't really question it because he knows I bake A LOT. Just taking this week to clean out my coupon binder, reorganize, clean out and dry some 2 liter bottles to store things in, making a grocery list, etc. I did get 5 more boxes of salt this week though, and am dehydrating 2 packages of celery that I got free. The other day at the grocery store the girl that works there knows I use coupons a lot, so she handed me $24 off your next order catalinas because she kept forgetting to hand them to people, so I'm probably going to get some packages of meat to can and a couple 5 ib bags of carrots.

You guys are making me look like a slacker, I just bought a slabbed $5 Gold Eagle yesterday.
No, no one is making you look like a slacker. You are still doing more than 98% of Americans. So congratulations even if you didn't add solar panels to your roof, build a water cistern, buy 50 cows, breed 60 chickens, construct a bunker, and plant 50 acres in corn. Just keep plugging along. Every little bit helps.
