The Week's Goals

Every week is busy, but I find myself forgetting about what needs to get done or time slips right past me! For at least the Spring, Summer, and Fall, I will post what I want to get done weekly. These lists will seem a bit ambitious, but I like to aim high!

This last week was totally turned upside down. The weather was not in my favor with several days of rain and storms. The baby chicks showed up five days early which prompted other things to get done first. Getting ready for the garage sale took up a lot of time. I also ended up home for the weekend which meant more stuff got done.

Last Week's Weekly Goals

Homesteading/Yard Chores

1. Trim tree by garage
2. Cut out or knock out wood board in garage. (It was actually a small door. I replaced the hinges and latches. Good as new!)
3. Clean out that side of the garage and move Holly the dog to the garage.
4. Pick up branches/Cut up bigger branches for firewood. (We got half of the house yard done and mowed. We have had a lot of branches down with all the storms in the last two weeks!)

1. Plant blueberries
2. Build a raised bed
3. Plant asparagus
4. Plant lettuce and spinach in oblong wooden containers (Even planted zucchini and yellow squash in the buckets. Something new to try to see if it works.)

2. Make granola

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. 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

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.

This list will concentrate on the non-perishable items because those are the ones most important to your food storage. To explain what I have included on this list, I will give you the criteria. I am making this list as basic as possible. Meaning that you can go to the grocery store and buy these items right off the shelf which means the items are shelf-stable. They will not expire o
