Today I toss around some ideas for how we could fund medical care in our communities. One of the big fears many have is getting ill and losing everything to the costs associated with medical care. How can we do this better?
Featured Event: The Gorham Homestead Workshops in Dickson, TN

Tales from the Prepper Pantry
- Having an organized pantry is racist – having that opinion is classist
- Mostly been cooking straight from the jar into the crockpot
- Late freeze beat back the early spring greens
- Purging things that we no longer use to make space for things we do use
Weekly Shopping Report
Frugality Tip: Ross or Homegoods
Do you have a Ross near you? Is there one on your travels? Stop in. Things like sneakers on clearance are great buys, camp chairs are half of Walmart prices, name brand garden tools are crazy cheap. My little secret is to check out the food section where I buy pink Himalayan salt for $4.99 for a 5# bag (they usually have rock and fine ground). You can get some really good buys in the spice section.
Happy hunting y’all, Make it a great week.
