And the week's peps continue tomorrow
With a front-end alignment on Mollymaroon ( the buick, once my home, now gateway to the Ozarks) comes spare tire check, some fix-a-flat, the plug kit w/rubber reamer... Probably get the oil changed on the nearing-180,000 mile engine (~4.5k since last change).
Tire patch/fix-a flat~$15.00=$102.00
Tonight saw several cans of canned meat go in the pantry, plus some organic whole-wheat flour so HermitJim kin keep me in bread via his new Dutch oven we'll purchase tomorrow... I get the skillets out of the package Lodge set-- less than buying the 10" skillet, 11.5" skillet, 7" griddle, dutch oven, and maybe a smaller skillet as well, and a cornbread sticks pan -- as separate items. I'll post on the actual price and pieces after the actual purchase tomorrow, though even as separate items Academy's prices run parallel to or less than wallyworld's... More than on par with my $2.00/day target, though the storage (pantry/prep items) only ran $9.11, after you add the asspaper and beer-- never wanna run out of either of those two..!!!
Oh, and seed orders--order, singular-- go out tomorrow. SSE/Heritage Farms in Decorah, Ia. Getting greedy on my seed stock; I don't really have the space for the 5 varieties of open-pollinated tomatoes that I'm ordering...
So I say, but I still have all this fenceline, and some container pots for patio/single-plant gardening. Add some chicken wire or kite string and a few nails or screws and you have a customizable trellis system for vine/pole variety veggies and fruits.
Let's see... with the $$ put aside towards future housing-- be it a converted horse trailer, a pop-up--whatever; with pantry items; with auto-repairs/preventative maintenance; with tomorrow's set-aside dollars (probably near $66.60) going towards usable gear, weekly preps total nearly $300.00.
My target is $2.00/day.
17 months until I bug out. All will go well until then-- because I have the power to make it do so.
