We had to go to town today, I had one of them Dr. appt.'s, I hate them SOB's. I decided that if I have to go to town I'm gonna get me some preps while I'm there. Extra cash is pretty slim right now, like there really is any such thing as extra cash. I have extra shoes but I have never had extra cash before. I know you know what I'm talking about. The only thing I consider extra is what change I save. I usually save it up for something that I really want that costs a little more but today I spent what I had. I have decided that from now on I will spend my money as the situation presents itself. Today's situation was going to town and right by a store with canned goods on sale. After listening to my Dr.s same line of bullshit we went over to a box store that sells groceries. I had $16.42 in change. They had canned veggies 5 for $2.00. After a little math in my head I decided that I could get 40 cans of veggies for my food storage and still have .42 cents left. Not bad, not bad at all. I got 10 cans of corn, 10 cans of peas, 10 cans of green beans and 10 cans of carrots. As I boxed up my goods I had a smile on my face the Devil couldn't have wiped off. Now, I spent all my extra cash today, is that a good thing to do?? Well today I know what my money will buy, tomorrow may be different. If it hits the fan tonight, these goods may not be available tomorrow for any price. Just venturing out to try to get them would be walking into a battle field too. I'm not saying to go and spend all of your prep money today but I am warning you that the value of your money is not stable. I chose to spend mine today while I know it's worth, I'm taking no chances on what tomorrow might bring. As the saying goes "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". What's your thoughts??
