I just added some of my all time favorite family Halloween movies to The Life Should Cost Less Store. These are all rated PG and under. Just some fun recommendations. Make sure to check it out.
Emergency preparedness is such a huge undertaking so it’s hard not to get overwhelmed or to even know where to begin. As I prepare I will be posting, and try to break it down so it’s as easy as possible for everyone to follow. Water, it’s the very first thing to start storing. Which is kinda funny, because it gets overlooked a lot when people are thinking of their needs. The American
Printable Version Summer’s over, and if you have an apricot tree you are probably up to your eyeballs in apricot preserves. It need not go to waste.

I started drinking it a few months ago and it has completely cured my insomnia and my mind no longer races thinking about 50 things at once.

If you don’t have vinyl windows and aren’t planning on replacing them anytime soon, you need to invest in some thermal drapes.
