Re: Where should I get my dried beans, lentils and peas

Tesco currently has a 2kg for £3.50 offer across their range of pulses ( mostly Natco brand) Lidl have cheap lentils. Speaking of pulses. I have some 5 gallon polythene bottles and have considered decanting my 1/2 and 1kg bags into them for more secure storage. Opinions, anyone? I just wonder if a f...

Re: Feeding the masses

While I'm not geared up for those kind of numbers, I've always had paper plates etc as part of my stores, if water was at a premium you maybe wouldn't want to use it to wash plates. Saying that, as I've been having a big sort out, I can't find them so will have to invest in some more. A year's wort...

Re: Feeding the masses

Found this: https://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/emergency-feeding-plan-pdf.pdf It is 2012, but all I could find for U.K. The plan relies heavily on mass acquisition of food by local authority from Morrison and Sainsbury’s. Given the just in time system, free market and potentia...

Re: Feeding the masses

My first question would be for how long? In the short term and on a small, local scale, some people might get organised (Sally Army / food banks etc) but without substantial relief quickly arriving from "outside" the effected area, a town or city wouldn't last longer than a few days before total pa...

Re: Feeding the masses

Didn't affect me directly but yes I remember the turmoil of the lack of chicken nuggets. Bit like the lettuce shortage people were getting in a tiz about it. I know what you mean about the lifestyles of the western world nowadays. A good example of that is the consumption of insects. Pretty common ...

Re: 20 litre Storage Buckets. Cheap but good.

Good price, depending on what they charge for shipping. Handy for my brewery, though I wouldn't be able to lift a full one. I was amused by the note... "Please note, there are 210 buckets on a pallet", that might be a clue as to how they might process an order for one. [edit] Hmmmm Hyde. I could do ...

Lidl Mispriced Cheap Tomatoes

A heads up for the stockpilers:- Lidl have their Freshona Tinned Plum Tomatoes reduced dramatically to 19p per 400g tin. I think it was only supposed to be a short term offer on old stock. Somewhere along the way there's some mis-pricing gone on. I'd read somewhere (HotUKDeals) that they are current...

Re: Ration Challenge

LOL. I'm taking the ration challenge. But dammit, I'm buying carbonated water. I'm on day 2 now on just rice and water - Saving the best till last. Lessons for the Prepper in me:- Rice goes a very long way.. 90g is a feast. ... But flavour, any flavour is essential. We need variety. Buy more flavou...
