From beans to rice...
Batteries to kerosene...
Bandaids to bubble gum...

A good prepper tries to put something up each week.
Let us know what everyone else is prepping so we can all remind each other not to forget that certain something.

Bought a small greenhouse from Home Depot. Have to wait until the weather improves to set it up. Hope it lasts longer than the PVC pipe hoop house I tried. It blew apart almost every storm in a couple of years it was toast. Have started a few trays of peppers but waiting a bit for everything else.

Put up more of that valuable stuff....food. Bought what I needed that was on sale and then got a couple more for the preps.
Aside from that, a bit of a top up on the car kit...
Found a folding solid fuel stove with 12 tablets at Dollarama for $2.00.
Don't underestimate your local dollar stores...they keep changing the inventory.
Bought some rechargeable batteries there a while back....2 pack AA for $2.00.
They hold a charge and seem to work well.
Even if they only charge up 10 times...still a deal over any alkaline !
Also, got some tiny ziplok bags...2" x 3"...80 pack for $1.00.
Great for packing those little things.
I use these to pack instant coffee, soup mix, etc for the BOB. Great for single serving stuff.

Bought a little extra dry soup mix with the regular grocery run. We do this every week to build up the preps.
Also continued to cut down trees as land clearing for the garden this spring.

AD, you did know that brown rice has a shorter shelf life than white, right? Because it contains oil it goes rancid after about 6 months. I know it goes against the grain (pardon the pun), but for long term storage go white.

Put another $20.00 into the car kit...canned tuna, can opener, boullion cubes, 50' rope, hand sanitizer, instant rice, etc...
Also, bagged some salt, pepper, garlic powder, coffee whitener, & instant coffee into tiny ziplok bags I found at the dollar store.
2" x 3" baggies - 80/$1.00. Great for individual serving stuff.

yup, knew that Sue, but thanks anyway. This is a part of the storage that gets heavy rotation, so it's not an issue.

Lessee..... preps this week:

Printed out more hardcopy info

added a couple of minor items to the car & home kits

Got my Petzl Tikka XP2 headlamp in the mail from MEC.

3 100' rolls of tin foil, 18 cans of herring and a 4L jar of pickles, weren't many great sale prices this week. I'm hoping to get to the LDS cannery next week but we've got a crazy amount of things scheduled. I'm just waiting for fruit season, peaches, strawberries and blueberries are almost all eaten, will have to bump them up another 20-40lbs each this year. Also started my tomato, cucumber and watermelon seeds yesterday. Not sure if we'll get any watermelon but it will be fun to try.

4L jar of pickles
24 cans of corn
12 cans tomato soup
2 large containers ice tea mix
150 paper plates
2.4 kg chocolate chips

re-reading the book "Food security for the faint of heart: Keeping your larder full in lean times" by Robin Wheeler. She's a BC author and it's a good book to recommend to anyone beginning their food storage.
