I just watched an interesting YouTube video that you might find helpful. It’s by Kellene Bishop, the Preparedness Pro. On this occasion Kellene had a friend film one of her regular thrift store shopping trips while she commented on the value of various items. Check out Preparedness Pro Tips at the Thrift Store and don’t overlook other people’s comments and the comment I made, suggesting a few more things you can do with thrift store purchases! Here’s a comment I made on another post about thrift store prepping.
I just wanted to let you all know that I have just updated my Home and School Solutions website. Among other things I added numerous links to all the section favourite link pages, brought the various testimonial (introduction) pages up-to-date, and fixed all the broken links.
The major thing I did, though, is add a Blogs-Plus tab/page. If there is anything I want to add to the website that cannot be naturally included in any of the existing sections (Hebrew Roots, Health=Wealth, Home Schooling, Faith Matters, Desktop Publishing, Store and Services, or About Home and School Solutions) then I will put it here.
Since most of my activity and research in recent years has been in the areas of prepping and gardening, I have put material about these two areas on the Blogs-Plus page. You are invited to go there now and check out all the links I have provided for you.
Whooohooo. Kellene Bishop of Preparedness Pro has just announced she is doing a “100 Days of Prepping” series chockful of information in many different forms–videos, articles, books, forum, lists, etc.
Sometime during that period she will be unveiling her new cookbook, which I’ve been looking forward to for awhile because she believes in tasty food from her food stores, which is something I’ve been agonizing about, and since she is a very practical person I know these will be recipes I can really use.
P.S. I don’t know what’s going to be included but I’m going to go out on a limb and assume the following categories will be mentioned somewhere in there. If not, please forgive me.
When there are too many things to be prepared for, the stress can really build up. Here's a stress relieving idea that I just learned about.
I recently subscribed to a very informative blog called Keeper of the Home: Naturally Inspired Living for the Christian Homemaker. This lady has a variety of interests, so I never know what's going to arrive in my in-box. Today it was an offer to win a Spoonk Rider Portable Acupressure Mat. I checked out the website and, you know, I think I want one of these things (or 2 or 3 or 4). So...I'm passing the offer on to you. This is what she says:
I have one Spoonk Rider to give away, at a value of $69!
Here's how to enter to win (please leave a separate comment for each entry):
1) Visit the Spoonk website and then leave a comment telling me why you'd like to win one, and which color you would choose.
2) Subscribe to Keeper of the Home, either by RSS or by email (or let me know if you already do).
3) Share about this giveaway on your blog, or through your favorite social media (you can find Keeper of the Home on both Facebook and Twitter). One extra entry per social media share.
Giveaway ends Tuesday, September 21 at 4:00 PM, PST.
If and when I get one of these Spoonk Mats I will let you know how it's working for me...or hubby...or daughter...or son. We may have mat wars around here for awhile. If you get one, please share!
