    I am looking for an outlet for 5 or 6 gallon pails of wheat, rice, beans or other staples. Can you give me some help in locating where I can get some that is properly packaged? (I’m new at this)


    1. 72hourplan Says:

      you can check walton feed, they do lots of bulk staples, but I only recommend bulk staples if you actually use them regularly. Dont want to try and change your eating habbits during a time of crisis and stress.

  4. Are You Disaster Ready?

    What do you expect in case of loss? Who cares? Who has disaster preparedness/recovery money for that?

    I don’t have all the answers, but I do have this one on disaster preparedness/recovery:

    A letter pertaining to disaster (hurricane, earthquake, tornado, flood, fire, etc.) has been sent to President Obama on behalf of all insurance policyholders. As a matter of transparency on the record of insurance consumer protection, any response by President Obama will be posted on the following Website for review:

      Too bad the police officers who didn’t prevent a violent crime in NY weren’t held to that legal precendece.

  5. Kellene Says:

    Not as of yet. But we’re trying to organize a national tour for the fall. Stay tuned.

  6. Thanks for your twitter message, it wouldn’t let me respond though. The prepper blog is listed in the comment and I have added your blog to the list.

    I started prepping last year, and I am ready to take your month on your stored food challenge. Actually It will be a walk in the park because I do eat out of my “pantry”. About the only thing I am weak on is dairy but I am looking forward to doing some soft cheeses this month. I did find that I stressed out about 3 months into my prep start. Because I so so many things in the news that made this critical. But then I remembered “Do the best with what you got” and no “Army” took the hill at 100% strength.”
    I am 100% disabled and on a fixed income. Fixed just high enough I don’t get Foodstamps or energy assistance. LOL So if I can feed myself and still store food for a year anyone should be able to. I budget $100.00 per month for food plus $50.00 for sales or special deals. I have not been a major coupon clipper but I do use them.
    There are 2 ways to start I have found. Go with 3/14/days of prep food or buy a 50 pound bag of rice and Pinto beans.
    Both bags have over 500 4oz. servings and you can get them both for under $50.00 in Bulk. A little hot water and a good thermos and you have a meal. Then start adding items Flour,oats, milk products, and so on. But you will have your base.
    I use the 10 to 18 gallon storage totes instead of the buckets. I like them because I can store a month’s worth of goods, they are opaque and they fit better in closets and are easy to move or share. Plus if anyone sees them you look like an organized packrat and not a prepper.
    I have done my first garden this year. I was very pleasantly surprised that it grew quite well, also I am raising rabbits. No restrictions on zoning in my city for rabbits. I also have 2 family members that doing chickens, and also sew. I am into spinning and hope to learn weaving this winter.
    I live in Idaho and people tend to be very friendly. Help your neighbors, take over a loaf of bread, fresh vegies from the garden. Talk to them, you will probably need these people if not working with you at least not working against you.
    I guess that’s about it. I have some great places to buy stuff but not sure if you want that on this site.

      I’m glad to hear that you’re making it work, regardless of your income. YOu’re welcome to e-mail me some info so that I can do my due diligence on it and then pass it on to the readers. Thanks! And good luck with your continued efforts in preparedness!!

  8. Thanks for your Twitter link 🙂 Now I can keep up to date with your posts.

    I was excited by the Grapefruit Seed Extract. I followed your suggestion and Googled it. I found this!:

    1. Kellene Says:

      Karl, you can find anything good or bad that you want to on the internet. If you were to Google Mother Theresa you would find claims that she’s was a total fake. Of course I found the negative on GSE. That’s exactly why I tried it first and LOVED it’s immediate results. There are literally THOUSANDS upon thousands of positive results for using GSE. Geesh!

  10. Valerie Says:

    I have a quick question about loadable coupons.

    When you load a coupon, is it good for only one item purchased or is the coupon good for multiple items?

    Any info. would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    1. Kellene Says:

      one coupon is only good for one item.

      1. OnMyWay2Glory Says:

        You can usually print 2 each time. These are great for BOGO’s at Publix who allows coupon stacking!They also honor other sore coupons.
