Black Friday deals are great, but the last place you’ll find me this time of year is in a store full of morons rushing to pick up a $3 toaster. With that being said, I’m still always on the look out for good Christmas time deals.

A Bug Out Bag allows you quickly grab what you need should you be forced to evacuate during a disaster.

I have seen many examples of fire starters, but I wanted to try and make one that was made out of only primitive materials. I wanted to make sure that it was small and waterproof.

My mom warned me that it doesn't make suds or bubbles and some people thinks that means their clothes aren't clean.
I have a confession, I scheduled this post for Friday but actually set the post date as 12/8/10 instead of 1/8/10. So please enjoy this Inspiring food storage " monday ." -Abs Aleasha here again.
