Ways to decide… Friend or Foe?

 

I posed a question on my Facebook asking…”What should I talk on?”  There were a few responses but the thing that got some great conversation going was a reply…”How to form friendships or greet people after the collapse.”  Funny thing was this morphed into a conversation about defenses.

What R ya gonna Do???

I mean really, What are you gonna do??

I’m on facebook and other social media sites like most and all I can see is Paris and Cat videos.  On the news I watched as the events in Paris unfolded live, just like they did on 9/11.  We all sit mouths agape and in shock at the horrific things we see.  Seriously?  Are you really that surprised?

Saving with Co-ops and buying clubs

Saving with Co-ops and buying clubs

11-3-15 buy-in-bulkLast week on Surviving Dystopia we talked about pinching pennies and ways to save with projects aimed at reducing the costs of some of the things we need.  Another way to save money and make those pennies last is to buy in bulk.  If in the long run you can reduce the expenses of your household wouldn’t this be something you would choose to do?

11-3-15 foosdBuying items in bulk can be a fantastic way to save a few pennies but we also need to remember these things must be stored.  When buying in bulk a few things need some special care, for example; Perishible items.  Taking care to establish safe methods of storage for such items is critical, so you can be sure you are saving those extra pennies.

Surviving Dystopia, What the heck does that mean?

In it’s most basic sense? “The art of Getting By”

In 1516 Sir Thomas Moore coined the word Utopia… In his book of the same name, he is describing a society possessing near perfect qualities….

The self sufficient homeThis week on Surviving Dystopia I discussed the art of self sufficiency!

What exactly is it to be self sufficient? Personally I think there are many “degrees” of self sufficiency.

Whereas to another it could be a completely off grid existence. Continue reading The Self Sufficient home on Prepper Broadcasting Network
