It’s been a while since last I wrote. One thing I am going to start doing is including the price of the things I purchase, this will be especially useful to the blog – or more specifically the people that may use my blog for its intended purpose.
My 15 year old has gotten a learners permit (or whatever they call it these days) and we are doing a lot more driving in order to get as much experience as possible. This is actually a type of prepping/sustainable living. Another driver is another resource. It means we are more mobile, if someone hurts themselves there is another person now capable of driving them to the hospital. If there are multiple stores that need to be visited, we can now split them up and that frees up more time. You get the idea. Of course to maximize this we need another car. Right now I could drive the truck leaving my car free, but both of those vehicles are pretty long in the tooth.
I can’t remember how long it’s been, but I did buy 5 more bonsai trees at $7 each! I am thinking I can transplant them and then try selling them at a garage sale. If successful, that could be another source of revenue.
– Bought a pick axe for $25 – 9/17/12 Now I can break up that layer of limestone that sits about 15” below the surface when I want to plant.
– Bought a 15gal drum to store gas from HomebrewersOutpost.com $26.98 – 9/20/12
– Bought 8 pack AAA eneloop batteries $16.35 – 9/20/12
– Bought tray of Romaine lettuce (8 heads I think?), head of garlic and bunch of onion bulbs to try in fall garden $7.86 – 9/26/12
