Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

To get to this place (under my twisting staircase) I have to pull out the tumble dryer and assorted cleaning stuff Lol. So the OH pointed to the tumble dryer and said nothing for a while.... "What have you done? What's different?" "Huh? I looked at the dryer. It was centralised, not a spec of dust ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Shelves are your friend! I don’t ( obviously) know the layout of your house. Do you have a spare room or outbuildings? ... Organisation is liberating, and it saves a lot of money by minimising waste. Could you do something like that, perhaps? The other half isn't on board with filling the bedrooms ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

I made some shallow wooden boxes with wheels for storage in awkward areas . It started with one for a train set under the bed. Not very preppey i know but the idea works for other stuff. The wheels where just simple timber circles with a screw in the middle to act as an axel . Didn't need to be any...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Today I extracted 7 fruit boxes full of tinned food and pasta sauces from the void under the stairs. This is a void that's really very awkward to access and had been a sort of one way 'stash and forget' stockpile. Since half of it is well paste BBE, I've decided to bring out the most expired stuff a...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Well, Friday nights have recently become Stash Sample nights. For historical reasons it's a day where I cook for one and he fends for himself. And tonight was another variation on Spag Bol which is getting better if not sillier. Tonight, I was double caught! Caught bringing in some dried ingredients...

Small things amuse...
Currently dehydrating the 5kg bag of onions that Iceland sold me for half price at just £1.25. With that and my massive order of powdered eggs, i'll be self sufficient in omelettes for at least 2 years :D

Re: Stash in a flat garage roof

Caught red handed loading boxes full of assorted scoff into the augmented storage space in the garage roof. There was a bemused look, then a gentle tutt, and I said something about 'Brexit just in case and kitchen cupboards overflowing a bit and I've gone a bit mad at Macro.' I'm gradually outing my...

Well 9/11 has been and gone I'm guessing Jenny is no longer with us :o
LOL. No sweat. I survived with zero ill effects.
I have now placed an order for LOTS more. But at the same time, I do intend to aggressively use up my old stock.
