As you know I am a major tightwad . So here is a couple places I save money . I go to the pie factory and get their 4 gallon plastic buckets with lid. $1 . Square ones and the gallon ones free . I am assuming they are food grade because pie filling comes in them . I just freeze the wheat , oatmeal , rice and other things a couple days then put it in the buckets … have never had bugs in 15 years . When I make laundry soap I do up a 12 gallon batch as it takes the same amount of time to as doing a small batch and put it in these buckets .
I go to pizza hut and get the gallon pickle jars these I use to store noodles and other things I want to keep mice and bugs out of . I get the left over produce from the grocery store to feed to my critters .
Subway is another place to get pickle jars and such . Oh and since it is wedding time of year you can pick up many candles at the thrift store for $.10 each . I buy flannel sheets to make diapers … many things at a thrift store can be recycled . I just keep my eyes open Musical instruments end up on auctions and TS . Oh my the violin we got for $30 came from Checkoslovakia in 1800 ‘s and is sounds wonderful .
Well I hope we are down here far enough that only the people who are preparing will know what we are doing . I realize this sounds crazy but I do not care if I can save a buck or two it can go to buying olives or chocolate . This info will not be important to many that do not need to watch the budget . But I figure I am keeping these things from going to the landfill too .
