Yep, been a full day here at Camp Bullseye. Lady Bullseye has a bum knee and I thought we were going to the Dr. office today but she decided to tough it out for a while longer. No need to be were all the germs are until you really have too. And she is feeling some better today.
Well, since that's off the list, me and her step father decided to go and get some more firewood. I have a bunch of trees that have been down since Feb. and are in a handy place to get them. We cut and hauled both of us a load of firewood today. BIG trailer loads too. We need more but they will be there when the chance happens by us again. I will be working tomorrow and should get 3 days out of it. I sure hope so. Not sure if anything is lined up later or not, just have to take it as it comes and thank God for it.
After we got back from the wood run I fonudthat we had got a Kroger sale paper in the mail. Some great deals too, especially if you are looking for bargain food storage. I hit the shower to try to get some of the sawdust off me and then on to Kroger. I never thought about it being the 1st of the month and the rush that goes along with that, be I soon remembered when I pulled in the parking lot. I was not going to miss this opportunity to add to my food storage no matter what. I was armed ( really, I had my 9 on my side, Open Carry here in KY ) and dangerous. I pulled out my list that I had made before I left home and hit the isles only purchasing the items on my list. Got a lot of canned goods at great bargains. Name brand too. Bought some stuff for the freezer too, to cheap to pass up. I have been working on getting some canned meats of sorts, chicken, salmon, tuna and of course the old standby, SPAM and TREAT meat. Just anything to add to the rice and beans to make it a little more fun. When it hits the fan anything kind of meat to add to you beans and rice will be fun I'm sure and welcome too. Man, I just love that Kroger. I have a Kroger Plus Card and get the best price on every purchase plus the send coupons every week tailored to our past purchases. So, we get coupons for the things we by regularly. These usually correspond to the sale that week too. We also get 10 cents of per gallon of gas for every $100 dollars we spend. It's a win, win for us really.
The only things I purchased that weren't for our long term storage were pop,bread and milk. The total before my Kroger Plus savings= $235.62, total after my Kroger Plus savings = $153.57, not bad at all. If you have Kroger near by, GET A KROGER PLUS CARD. Check with your local stores and see what kind of saving plan or card the offer and get one. It's big savings
The family is heading to WV again this weekend and I will have some time alone. I plan to spend it working in the food storage room. Things have gotten pretty messed up in there. (Someone) and I won't point any fingers has been putting random junk in there from throughout the house. I plan to organize and itemize everything once again and get back on track. A big job but I really enjoy it. Food storage is and always has been my favorite prep.
So, yep, a full day. Got a good load of wood and some food too. A good day for me and I sure needed one. As I mentioned before, it's been pretty stressful around here the last few weeks. Today had made me feel some better about things. Alright guys and gals...
This is Bullseye... OUT !!!
