This 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!

Glad I had my list, but what I got done was a bit different. My garden got tilled! So I planted about half of the garden and hope to get the rest done this week yet. The weather was gorgeous and we spent a lot of time outside. The chicken coop and run have been taking more time than planned! The yard work was mostly done by Paige and Dane which was awesome!

4. Fix the room in the barn for the chicks to go outside  (Rob put chicken wire on the ceiling to discourage bird nests, fixed the window and doors, and cleaned up the walls. I swept the room and put fresh bedding in the room.)
5. Cut down tree growing in the rhubarb patch

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.

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.

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
