    Bulk soap mish mash destash

    Thank you! :D I am trying to clean up my soap room a bit since I'm moving it to bigger digs and trying to organize it a little bit better. If this helps, I can fit up to 6lbs in a Regional Rate A box for a maximum price of $9.88 (might be less if you're closer or purchase less soap).

    Bulk soap mish mash destash

    Big ol' box of soap. This is a mix of random body/hand safe soaps that are random scents, no labels, unwrapped. May contain colorants, essential oils, fragrance oils and natural additives (I KNOW there is some soap with poppy seeds for mild exfoliation). These are mostly bars from the molds that...

    Keeping Lettuce

    In all honesty, I accidentally froze romaine lettuce and it didn't seem bad to me. Maybe I'm just not as picky as some people, but it was certainly still edible and didn't turn to slime.

    Hillbilly Blood Show

    They ruined it with the deer in a noose bullcrap. It was shot and then they hung it up. It was obvious and the shot was a poor shot to begin with.

    How fat is obese?

    The numbers are more of a guideline. What's important is FAT. If you have excess fat, get rid of it if you can. Excess fat just has so many problems. Heart problems, excess estrogen, increased risk of blood sugar problems, etc, etc, etc.

    Self sufficiency flock - Hatching eggs

    I sure did! They were on a diet, though they don't seem to have gotten the memo, as they range from 11lbs to 15lbs for the hens. I allowed free-range literally from about day three (they were shipped in and then I purchased them at auction). They didn't go far as babies (they were brooded in the...

    Self sufficiency flock - Hatching eggs

    I have a nice mixed flock, designed for self-sufficiency. Leghorn and Ameraucana roos over 9 cornish cross, 2 leghorns, 1 Ameraucana, 1 cochin cross and 3 light brahmas. Most eggs are a jumbo+ size. The cornish cross hens are hefty birds, weighing from 11lbs-15lbs. They free-range and they do it...

    Dog Breeding

    My dad used to breed Siberian Huskies. Purebred, back yard breeder. We didn't do health testing, didn't use champ stock, we used breeders who had healthy AKC registered huskies who were unrelated. Never had problems with health in these "badly bred dogs" as most would put them. As for puppy...

    What did you do to save $ today?

    Two things that are "new". One is homemade dishwasher machine liquid. $0.01/load as compared to $0.14/load of the bulk store stuff. Second, I'm building cages. $50 to build my three pen unit, vs $110 if purchased from tractor supply. I suppose hatching my own chicks could count too. $0.20 per...

    Shelf life of food

    I really had a good laugh at eggs and ham. We keep eggs on the counter for longer than they say they last in the fridge...

    I gotta brag on my soon-to-be SS kindergartener

    My 5 year old is incredibly independant. My 3, almost 4 year old? Not a chance. He still doesn't get the concept of shoes on the right feet. My oldest NEVER had that problem. The 5 year old is the biggest help, as far as washing dishes, cleaning up, feeding critters, etc. He has his own birds in...

    People just don't seem to think that life can be easy, and believe that it won't work unless you go through all the hassles. I also think that some people are all freaked out about collapse of the entire world (zombie nation). Sure, *if* that happens, you might not have a fridge, but, umm, if...

    Please critique this!

    I hate lists. I go based on what's on sale. I wouldn't eat half of that stuff. Going by sales vs some random list will save more money and you'll get what you actually use.

    What did you do to save $ today?

    I couldn't give a dollar amount, but I've been doing a lot of bartering for chicken breeds that I want, and I've saved a LOT of money. I mean, like, at least $100's of dollars. Does that count? LOL.

    liquid laundry soap

    It doesn't work well in hard water. Everything smells funny after being washed, so we kind of use both here, and added scent to the soap. I'm debating on adding SLSa to mine to see if it helps too.

    What did you do to MAKE money today?

    It's basically an interest-free savings account, and a penny saved is a penny earned, right?

    What did you do to MAKE money today?

    $6.22 profit, after feed costs and shipping for some eggs. Another turkey egg shipment will go out next week as well. Hopefully I can keep getting orders in until we move so that the turkey eggs don't go to waste. Everything else I can put in the fridge without any remorse, in fact, it'd be nice...
