Stocking Up On $5 A Week

The Zombies are coming! The Zombies are coming!  Oh wait……wrong post lol.

It doesn’t take a zombie apocalypse to cause major upheaval in your life.  A job loss, a lingering illness, a hospital stay can all wreck havoc on your life.  Being prepared for life’s little hiccups can make things so much easier and less stressful.  But, how do you do this realistically?  My favorite blog-friend Heather has a great system over at The Welcoming House, but you might find even her great ideas a little overwhelming.

So how about just $5 a week?  Could you handle that?  It won’t make you completely food self-reliant, but it’s a great place to get yourself started.  Another lovely young lady in the blogosphere posted this fantastic list.  I’m going to do it and I thought I would share it with you.  So, check out the list and then run over to Little House Living and check out Merissa’s other great posts.

Week 1 – Spend $5 on Rice
Week 2 –  Spend $5 on Beans
Week 3 –  Spend $5 on Sugar
Week 4 –  Spend $5 on Salt
Week 5 –  Spend $5 on Baking Powder
Week 6 –  Spend $5 on Milk Powder
Week 7 –  Spend $5 on Dried Onion
Week 8 –  Spend $5 on Dried Garlic
Week 9 – Spend $5 on Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Week 10 –  Spend $5 on Baking Powder or Yeast
Week 11 –  Spend $5 on a Whole Grain
Week 12 –  Spend $5 on anything else


Hope everyone is having a great week!
