    Tales from the Prepper Pantry
    We are cooking oil free in the Holler Been Shrinking Pantry Storage to get into a better solution for storing things Dedicated company freezers vs personal freezers Transitioning into Storing From Using: Mid Spring Herbals A word on devilled eggs Weekly Shopping Report
    Thanks to a suggestion on the garden shed, I found a nearby place that does business with both Amish and Mennonite builders. The owner visited us to see our proposed site on Thursday, so our first stop on Friday was to his lot, to finalize details and make a deposit. We'll be getting a larger (8'x10') shed, for at least $700 less than Home Depot's price on an 8'x8' model.
    Home Depot our next stop. They've got LOTS of batteries; I grabbed an 8-pack of AA lithium which will be for a label printer that won't get used a lot, and would likely be destroyed by alkaline leakage. A 2x4x8 is $3.73. 
    Aldi was last. It was also rather busy. We found everything we wanted. A few prices were actually lower. Staples were: bread (20 oz. white): 1.29; eggs: $2.05; whole milk: $2.83; heavy cream: $5.29; OJ: $3.29; butter: $3.69; bacon: $3.99 (-); potatoes: $3.99; sugar: $2.99 (-); flour: $2.35; and 80% lean ground beef: $4.09.
    A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.599.
    Operation Independence
    What is the emergency fund for and what do you do after using it?
    Main topic of the Show: What is Next for LFTN
    It happened again. We turned a corner at the LFTN workshop. I kicked off the event with what was supposed to be a talk about using the #my3things method to move forward in life. But guys, I was BEAT. Like more beat that I have ever been. When I stepped in front of everyone to talk I saw much of the same fatigue on so many faces that I stopped focusing on the prepared notes and started a conversation. 
    By then end of our conversation I realized something: You are no good to anyone if you put yourself in the hospital. Period. 
    We have spent years helping people stuck in the throes of analysis paralysis just get started and then refine. We have spent  years helping people who are having motivation problems, maybe a little depression or other things that keep them from persevering. We have talked about all the ways you can look at an impossible list, set a really big goal, then go for it and keep going every. Single. Day. 
    We have even talked about adding your personal health, relationships, and other really important things to your daily goals so that you build a happy life.
    Why? 
    Because the problem most of us face as we begin our walk toward independence is not what other people think about us. It isn;t if a spouse is on board or not. It isnt even about squeezing that last nickel out of your day to finally put aside toward something better. 
    It is the broken promises to ourselves that must change.
    We tell ourselves stories like: I will eat on plan, or I will do this thing by that time. Or I will by GUM conquer laundry mountain tomorrow.
    Always tomorrow.Then tomorrow comes and it is so tempting to just not do what we set out to do even if we KNOW we feel better if we prioritize what we already promised ourselves (and sometimes others) we would do.

Nicole has a lot of good stuff in the LFTN podcast: from homesteading, to losing the drama in your life. But there are some serious gems in this podcast that will make you want to listen daily because they will change how you live your life.
