Sorry about the unintended break!

I had no idea how many things were going to be scheduled this last few weeks. If I did, I would have panicked before this week. Even being at home was busy. I was and am very grateful for some of the girl time I had with friends as well as Rob being around a little more to take off some of the pressure. He will think he did nothing, but sometimes he is too humble.

I did not intend to take this much of a break from blogging because I truly love what I blog about and the simple act of writing my thoughts down. I love to think that I am helping you all be more like I want to be more of everything.

I know I have things to blog about. I have a post ready for tomorrow on ways I save money at the grocery store and keep my budget down to $350 a month for five people. I hope to be making beef and/or chicken broth this weekend and I want to take pictures of that as well as show you all the canning process. I also want to try Meyer Lemon Marmalade and hope to take pictures of that also. I also want to talk about tax refunds, car maintenance, and ways I plan to spend to increase my preps as well as increase the comfort and security of my home.

I also want to reiterate that if you ever have a question for me about what I am doing or a concern over how I am doing, please let me know. I am not that scary!

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

10 Non-Perishable Food Preps You Should Be Buying Every Month

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared.
