They can’t keep the stuff on the shelves here in MI.
Weekly Preppers’ Thread PING!!!
Buying in bulk makes good sense...
We had a small section of that stuff here at our wallyworld a year and a half, maybe two years ago. I bought a cart full, but when I went back for more in a few days it was all gone, and hasn’t been back since.
They still have plenty of Little Debbie concentrated sugar snacks though. :-(
I’ll look in our local Walmart, but don’t have a lot of confidence that I’ll find it —
This is the store - in a rural location, surrounded by ranchers, farmers, and a growing community of gardeners - that has never carried canning jars/lids/supplies, and this season has a downsized Garden Department...
It’s just pathetic....
I’ve never seen these at my local Walmart, and I was just there this morning. I did notice Target selling canning supplies last fall.
If you need them badly, get on the website and order them. It is about 25 year shelf life if kept in the basement cool and moderate temps. Avoid attics and garages where summer temps can go to high and ruin the shelf life. You will need plenty of water and means to boil the water and use it to re-hydrate the food. There are companies that sell canned meats like beef, roast beef, chicken, chicken chunks, etc. These cans require a can opener and extra shellac coat where the top/bottom of the can touches the body of the can. This allows for a good seal. Meat are cooked and can be eaten straight out of the can.
Tab open cans are good for about 2 years. Avoid them. Do not mix up the can types if buying can food for good shelf life.
Get together with some other preppers and put in a bulk order to www.waltonfeed.com
I love those guys!
I just ordered a pallet of non-GMO food from them.
Example: I bake bread and resented paying $2-3 for a piddly jar of molasses. I ordered a 6 gallon pail a few years ago for a lifetime supply of molasses. BTW, I heated the molasses on the stove and then poured it into canning jars that I pre-heated and sterilized in the oven at 275F. It should keep for many years.
went to auction this week loaded up with cases of canned goods. many dented but all dated 2013 to 2015. also learned how to make laundry detergent. 3 cents a load. works awesome and i have HE washer. look it up on youtube. all ingredients can be found at walmart or ace hardware. amazing. in process of making my own DW detergent n wood cleaner.
Been on the shelves in Idaho for several years now.
I do the homemade detergent and fabric softener (although their formula didn’t work and I now use cheap fabric softener instead of conditioner in it).
So far so good on it.
Are you on Pinterest? Lots of good recipes for cleaning supplies. The shower cleaner with Dawn can’t be beat.
I think I saw Mountain House at Wally World the last time I was there.
And btw, I tried the dishwasher detergent. It left a horrible powder on my glasses.
I elected to get some phosphate instead and use half the Cascade. Works like a charm at half the price.
I wish they would wake up and put it in our walmart here in Pahrump Nevada. I keep telling them there are tons of preppers out here.
Use Vinegar instead of fabric softener,
1. It is cheaper
2. It works JUST as well
3. I helps sanitize (a bit).
I use vinegar. And a few drops of fabric softener. Does not smell like eggs. Or vinegar....
Do you have tips on what to do (other than moving!) if you live in South Florida (like us)?
We have a pretty large garden and we get a lot from it. We grow three plantings... probably your Spring planting in the Fall, another like planting in maybe late February early March, and a “summer” planting (cowpeas, sunflowers, several types of peppers, sweet potatoes) in mid to late May . But “summer temps” for you are winter here, and we have no basement (water table not too deep).
We do get about 100 avocados each year from our tree, and trade them with our neighbor for mangoes, but more variety is always nice.
We are getting into home canning, but as latecomers.
