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

We have also been reviewing our home security. Husband has "fixed" the old up and over garage door so it cant be opened from the outside, but he needs to do some work on the other door to make that more secure now. Just accepted an estimate for a new metal and composite side gate as the old one is n...

Re: No cost or low cost preps

A starter first aid kit, Poundland do one, basic but better than nothing. Alternatively make your own in a tub/box you own already. Most of the smaller shops selling various cleaning and toiletry items sell bandages, plasters, tape and paracetamol cheaply.

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

We arent allowed to use out of date first aid items at work, although what issues an out of date triangular bandage is going to cause is beyond me and personally I would rather use an out of date basic dressing than none at all. As I'm in charge of restocking I always ask if anyone wants them for ho...

Re: strawberry thief - sort of

How strange! I had a thief too. I left my two best heads of broccoli to harvest the next day. Arrived home to my husband telling me that we must have a new kind of pest as the broccoli had disappeared. It turned out to be one of our daughters who visited, saw it and thought she would take it home fo...

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

Ordered a sack of plain flour as this is one of the things I and other family members have struggled with which will be seperated and vacuum sealed into smaller bags. Had a 2 tonne delivery of firewood because although we normally get free wood our supply has been affected by Covid. It would normall...

Wine roulette sounds fun, I bet some of it is pretty strong too, but 30 years old wow!

Re: Waxed cheese question

On the back of the freezing cheddar question,..... I still have a couple of wheels which have been in the fridge and keep looking at it wondering if it is still ok to use? It won't be safe to use. Or even handle. Send it to me and I'll dispose of it correctly and safely for you. Now i'm only guessi...

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

Washing machines and other essential white goods have a habit of breaking down when you most need them and have the least spare cash. See if you can find any shelving on Gumtree or somewhere similar. I bought some cheap, but strong garage shelving from B & Q when it was on sale. This is in our spare...

Waxed cheese question

On the back of the freezing cheddar question, how long does waxed cheese last? I have seen You tube videos of preppers waxing their own cheese and saying that it will last years and other people saying that it doesnt last much past the use by date. In summer 2018 I bought a few waxed cheeses from a ...
