Tales from the Prepper Pantry

  • Man when life gets busy, it is hard to love to cook, but we made it
  • Curing Pork Bellies this week
  • Found a solution for organizing jars of herbal teas that we grow – the cube
  • Time to grab vinegar – I can’t put it off any more. I am going to have to go to the store
  • Made “Not Quite Cottage Cheese”

Weekly Shopping Report, March 11

Saturday’s first trip was just by me, primarily to get an oil change for the Santa Fe, but I then went to Hobby Lobby and found a few items I knew Sonia wanted; Saturday was our 17-year Anniversary.

Dollar Tree. Most of the drink coolers are full again, and all of them are now $2.25. I still just grab a drink off a shelf.

Aldi: more crowded than usual. Stock levels were good, and as usual we found everything we wanted. Staple prices were: eggs: $2.64 (-); whole milk: $2.86; heavy cream: $5.19; OJ: $3.29; butter: $3.69; bacon: $4.25; potatoes: $3.99; sugar: $3.09; flour: $2.29; and 80% lean ground beef: $3.99 (-).

Home Depot. A 2x4x8 was $3.38, which I don’t think is a change (I only put the staples in my notes).

A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.599.

Frugality Tip from Margo

When pricing out new appliances, look at the delivery and set up fees. Those hidden little fees can be another couple of hundred dollars. In the last year we have had to replace a spare refrigerator and a stacked washer/dryer.(Side note don’t ever buy a scratch and dent washer, ask me how I know). We ended up using one store (Best Buy), because delivery and setup were included in the price of the washer/dryer and if you are nice to people they will put your fridge in too 😉. A family member just got a new dishwasher, but didn’t look at the add on fees. What looked like a savings over other stores prices ,ended up being $180 more than the other store with the extra fees. So even if you are handy and are planning on putting your own appliances in, look at that free delivery and setup and let someone else do the work without paying any more money.

Happy saving y’all.

Operation Independence

Missing Chicken

Main topic of the Show: Lessons From The Webinar Series

Why we are doing it.

  • Learning vs selling vs community
  • Spirit of the world right now
  • Why I do SRF and LFTN to begin with – lots of why

Assess Your Assets – just like in homestead design

Tap into your community – Cohosts, content creators, and Rebecca

Lessons Learned

  1. People love a freebie – abuse this to your peril (2 schools of thought)
  2. Upfront about upsells – it is in the marketing
  3. The technical and production part always takes more than you thought it would. Always. (Backups on your backups)
  4. The registration form and where did you hear about this question
  5. The landing page and conversion rate – 45% (Why I think this is)
  6. Short term vs long term benefit

All in all Know Your Why, Know Your Brand, And Be Willing To Take A Chance.


Make it a great week!
