More stocking up ideas for your food and emergency storage.
I am a great fan of Dollar Stores.
Everything For $1
Please don't turn your nose up at shopping at these discount stores as you can get really good bargains!
Always, but ALWAYS check expiration dates (that goes for anything you plan to put in long term storage!).
Here is a partial list of some items I have bought at the above named stores and found to be quite good/useful.
Sun Dried Tomatoes
Various Canned Meats (including the ever popular DAK hams!)
Mini-Flashlights (perfect for tucking into a purse or back-pack)
Wash Cloths (have you seen those bundles of 10 or 15 for 5 bucks?)
Small buckets (milk pails at farm store were $8.99, same sized bucket at dollar store $1.00. My goats do not seem to mind!)
The list of useful items goes on and on! A lot of items end up being used daily here, other items end up in my long term storage. I make one trip per month and have a budget of $25.00 for what I will buy.
Check out your local discount/dollar store!
