If you’re still buying your printer ink at the local stores like Walmart and Best Buy you’re really missing out and worse yet… spending way too much money on printer ink. Instead, you should be shopping at discount retailers such as PrinterInkWarehouse.com and dozens of other places. Honestly, Amazon.com is where I still choose to buy most of my ink.
Now, in my opinion, there is no need whatsoever to purchase OEM toner. The stuff is WAYYYYYY too expensive and there’s no ... continue reading... Jul 30, 2014

As I’ve been having fun at making water bottle survival kits recently I figured it only made sense to try a five-gallon bucket survival kit. After all, I LOVE buckets and think one can never have enough of them. As you can see I was able to shove it all in there but to get the lid on required a bit of… persistence:
Here’s what I was able to stuff and shove. I was going to number them but ... continue reading... Jul 26, 2014

We’ve been trying to workout more the past month or so and it’s super easy to do at home with a few supplies and little willpower. Whereas once upon a time we used to have a fancy YMCA membership and probably paid $85 or more each month for the family plan. Add that up and we spent a good $1000 a year! Thankfully, we don’t do that anymore.
The sad thing is that, like most “new” habits, we used the membership a ... continue reading... Jul 23, 2014
When I first got “into” prepping several years ago now (if not longer) I saw it merely as a way to keep from being totally screwed in the short term until things got back to normal. You know, I’d have flashlights and lanterns if the lights go out, food in then pantry in case we couldn’t get to the store, a way to briefly stay warm until power comes back… that sort of thing.
In the past few years I’ve added to many ... continue reading... Jul 22, 2014
Although we see things for what they are, preppers aren’t immune to many of the problems that regular Americans find themselves in. Even though we seem to be coming out of the great recession, too many of us are still suffering from large amounts of debt. And the problem keeps growing. Among these numbers are certainly many preppers.
But for a prepper, the decision between what they need and what they have is a bit more complicated than for the average ... continue reading... Jul 21, 2014
Have you ever had those Datrex or Mainstay Emergency food ration bars? If so, you may have realized that they aren’t the best of survival rations for taste but they will keep you alive. Nuff said. And hard tack? Yikes! You may as well be eating a brick.
Well, I came across this article a while back on making survival bars and I thought I would give it a shot myself to see what they tasted like. Please read the original article if ... continue reading... Jul 19, 2014

Since we’re still uber broke I’ve been trying to do what I can to save money. While I’ve learned to try and use less of our utilities, use less paper goods, less plastic goods, there’s still more that can be done and a part of that means using less of those things that we know we have to replace on occasion, including items like dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, toothpaste, and so on. Here’s a few things I’ve learned over the past few months:
