Weekly Shopping Report from Joe

Our first stop was Hobby Lobby for some Velcro. Their sewing notions area looked well-stocked.

Next was Home Depot. The store was reasonably busy for a non-weekend day. There is still no price tag on the 2x4x8 studs, but online they have dropped to $3.48. Seems to me I’ve seen some stuff online suggesting the lumber market is “collapsing.” We’ll see…

Last was Aldi. We found everything we wanted. The 70% cacao chocolate was back in stock. It seemed there was more bread than there has been in recent weeks; more pork had returned to the meat coolers, and the cantaloupes were again decent. Staple prices were: bread (20 oz. white): 1.29; eggs: $1.54(-); whole milk: $2.83; heavy cream: $5.29; OJ: $3.29; butter: $3.59; bacon: $3.99; potatoes: $4.49; sugar: $2.99; flour: $2.35; and 80% lean ground beef: $4.09.

A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.599.

Frugality Tip NOT from Margo

Quality cabinets are hard to find (ask me how I know). If you have a ReStore nearby, you can find some amazing buys. We were able to get a 14 piece set of wood build cabinets. It included 2 tall units and another one with glass doors. Total cost $1800 before taxes.

Have a great day.

Main topic of the Show: Home Food Preservation For Everyone

As we get into food abundance season, I thought today would be a good time to talk about various home food preservation methods, and how to fit them into your life. Anyone can preserve food and you dont have to invest in tons of infrastructure to do it if you are not yet ready to fully commit.

Growing food and foraging is like printing money when you do it right. Likewise, food preservation is your savings account for winter.

Why Preserve food (Healthier, Saves Time, Savings Account, Skills and resilience)

How do I create my preservation plan? (The time money grid)

Preserving on a budget/supplies

Example Plan – store what you eat and eat what you store
