7 Prepper Lessons Learned in Afghanistan

This was an interesting video I ran into earlier today on one man’s experience while working in Afghanishtan in 2003.

BrickSeek.com – Save Big Money On Preps? (video)

I’m just passing this tip along as I’ve never heard of BrickSeek.com until this video, but it appears that you can use this site to search for great deals on all sorts of items at places like Walmart, Target, Office Depot and Lowes, though, this tip relates purely to Walmart.
