Re: No cost or low cost preps

Our local tip now has a re-use shop where all usable items like this are sold back to the public. Gas bottles, unused tiles and some other bits are also explicitly left in areas that allow others to help themselves. Everything sold or taken is one less thing to pay landfill tax on.

Re: Shops selling off Covid surplus?

I buy my flour from the local bakery, they buy theirs from the flour mill over the road so its about as fresh as you can get...... I don't think the mill sells to the public, and if they did it would probably be by the 25kgs sack. I'm keeping an eye open for random bulk sales, but haven't found any ...

Re: Airtight food containers

Big Kilner jars, you can quite often find them in charity shops because 'farmhouse' is now going out of fashion. Also check the places like B&M and the Range when they switch seasons as they can mark them down to stupid cheap. For larger bulk containers look for plastic buckets with lids, my local b...

Re: Home Security Upgrades

About gates:
Its a weird thing that you're less likely to get burgled if you have gates and keep them shut, even if they're not locked.
Its supposed to be because they're a barrier in people's minds...... I wonder if that works for random door-knockers like hawkers and missionaries ?

I find that baby sterilizing tablets are also good to sort out stinky thermos and water bottles. Just rinse well after.
I used to use those to clean my double-walled steel work mugs, they both developed a leak in the inner . I think it was where the tablet tended to sit while fizzing.

Re: Wide mouthed Stainless thermos..

I've got a "Thermocafe" by Thermos for winter work soup...... Not used it much as it hasn't been winter yet. Five quid, pre-owned from Ebay.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

The masks I use (Herself prefers ear loops) have an open ended sleeve sewn up the two sides with a single long cord threaded through...... I'll see if I can find a link If you cut T-shirt into strips and then pull it it curls itself into cord. ETA https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=zm_N...
