As you may have noticed, I do not have ads on my blog that you can click on to earn me a few cents from your purchases. I figure there are enough people doing that so I'm not monetizing my blog. Every once in a while I plug my friend GI Jim and his store up in the small town of Prather. I also have a link to Major Surplus and Survival down in the LA area. I used to shop there, until I discovered GI Jim, but there's no reason to remove them as a link. I've also plugged books like the Prepper's Pocket Guide http://apartmentprepper.com/, which I got for free as a reviewer, but the book is worth plugging even if I did get it free.
One of the sellers I've promoted is Misty Marsh. She is a Shelf Reliance consultant. I'm not sure how their consulting business works nor do I really care. I'm not getting into storage food sales. Misty will provide free samples if you wish to try something out. But, these aren't free to her. She has to pay for them. Still she will provide you with a trial if you want to sample before you buy. Today I received an email from Misty about a sale. I thought it would be worth passing on. This sale goes from Feb 20th through March 18th.
3 Freeze Dried Ckn & 3 Ground Beef Pack:
Sale price: $144.60 ($24.10 per can)
6 Freeze Dried Cheese Pack:
Sale price: $154.65 ($25.78 per can)
When I bought my 6-pack of freeze dried cheese a couple of months ago I thought it was a great price. I paid $180 for the six cans. Yes, I know it's about $4.00 a can less on this sale. Many of us are getting tax returns. I think this is a good way to spend some of that return.
This is not available online; if you are interested, you must contact Misty directly to order them. Her email is: firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone number is 760-814-9833. She is taking pre-orders since the sale doesn't start for a couple more days. And no, I'm not getting an extra discount by passing her email along to you.
Always one to look for a bargain, GI Jim, you said that you were hoping to stock some storage foods. If you are, since I haven't been your way in a little while, let me know and I'll unabashedly throw your name around some more.
Although I do a lot of canning, including canning cheddar and mozzerella cheese, and we raise our own lamb and chicken, I still believe there is a place in my food storage for freeze dried food. I'm going to tell you that it's not ever going to be the bulk of my storage program but it has its place.
