I can't remember if I have mentioned this on this forum. Go To Estate Sales! Yesterday, I went to two of them locally in town.

I buy their food - lots of food. I also happened to get a LEM meat grinder for $70 which retails for $550. Only missing two parts. Pics of the food below. Is some of it old? Yes, I only go back to 2019 even tho I have a few cans of things in my own pantry dated before then.
First pic: $30. (that is sugar in the vac pac bags).
Second: 50 cents for each tin.
Third: rice about $3
Fourth: lentils about $8

Meat grinder definate SCORE! 👍 My area rarely has an estate sale. Lotta military and that means transient every couple years. I've found a few and most are furniture, appliances, some garage, tools, etc. It's a great outlet if any around. 😊

WOW!! On the meat grinder!! Good buy on the food too. My meat grinder is a small cheap one I bought 30 some-odd years ago. Adequate, but I sure like yours better!

I didn't go back 11 pages, so if this is a repeat, please forgive.

Mustard will be short. Seeds are short so therefore prepared mustard will be in short supply. I've bought several varieties that I'll keep in the basement for the next year. It lasts a long time!!

I cannot stock up on things that use mustard as an ingredient however. Shrug - can't win them all.

I just found a greenhouse on facebook marketplace and another on craiglist. (OMG my new favorite websites!!!) I will have one for vegetables and another for putting around the rainbarrels. I am bound and determined to grow vegetables for our household and keep us in eggs. If push comes to shove...I can get the goats bred and we can have milk.

There is time to prepare for winter, We will get through it. I refuse to give in to negativity.
