    @IronRangeSurvival Thanks for the comment. I agree…if you have a cannery
    nearby, it’s worth a visit.

    When storing flour, Freeze it for 24 hours first, it will kill all bug

  5. skywriter1962

    @BlackCatSaloon Yes, my mom did that too, it was later in her life that she
    found out that you should freeze it first to get rid of any larvee, and the
    Bay leaf help’s keep from any new infestation, Thanks for that I had
    forgotten about the Bay Leaf!

    Most dried foods in #10 cans will keep about a year once they are opened.
    However, I have had some last longer than that. It depends on the type of

    We live in Indiana too and were thinking of going to one. Thanks so much
    for the comments on their store house!

  9. BlackCatSaloon

    @whatiftheyareright No problem, glad you found it useful.

  10. ihatesquirrel13

    @MsAnna4040 what does it have to do with christians ? beleif in fantasies
    has nothing to do with preperations

  11. BlackCatSaloon

    @jplerwill Excellent idea…thanks.

  12. FredFlintStoneRox

    The church also runs what is called “Bishops Storehouse”. It is where one
    can go to the storehouse, purchase the foodstuff and or the cans, and
    supplies to can it yourself. The one near me also has a canner they loan so
    you package the food at your house. Some have the canner and a pouch sealer
    too. If you do not have a Bishops Storehouse near you, then order the food
    from the website.

  13. BlackCatSaloon

    @TheReaganRevolution I’ve found the Mormons to be very kind and helpful as
    well. Thanks for the comment and I”m glad you enjoyed the video.

  14. BlackCatSaloon

    @dendog21 Oh yeah, for sure…much cheaper if you can yourself. This would be
    for folks who prefer to buy prepackaged. If you live near an LDS cannery,
    you can get more variety and it’s cheaper as well. Thanks for the comment.

  15. BlackCatSaloon

    @isabstmr You are very welcome!

  16. Ruth Pople

    I am a born again Christian… more and more Christians are storing
    food…who knows maybe we are doing this for those who are left behind
    after the rapture.

  17. BlackCatSaloon

    @MsAnna4040 Thanks for the comment. For sure there ary many closet
    pereppers out there. I wish I had an LDS cannery nearby.

  18. BlackCatSaloon

    The opened cans of food should last a year easy.

  19. snaps81625

    @patriotusa200 When I open a #10 can of beans I pressure can the whole can
    .. but first I soak those beans overnight with a little baking soda!! It
    softens the old beans.. I promise anything you open will be used and
    quickly enough!

  20. BlackCatSaloon

    @patriotusa200 lol…after you open the can you’d want to consume within a
    reasonable amount of time.

    Most LDS members are very kind & desire to live good lives – I do not
    resent or dislike the members themselves. I do dislike the teachings of
    that cult and the leaders who know they are teaching lies. Like many cults,
    they can be very abusive and even though I recognized enough of the lies to
    turn from them as a young teen, enough damage was done that it took me over
    30 years to become a born again Christian. I’m just grateful that God never
    gave up on me!

  22. amusingisthedawn

    I just ordered a starter kit. Thanks for the tip man.

  23. katzcradul

    You did a much better than ‘halfway decent’ job. You did a great job
    explaining all of this. I really liked the flickering lamp. Your video was
    well done.

  24. jplerwill

    Southernprepper1 just made a similar video about the LDS canning. He shows
    a 220 page preperation book that can be downloaded for free and is
    extremely full of great info.

  25. bleaupearls

    nice video Thanks.

  26. HealthyPrepper

    Hi Beronica! Couponing can really help! πŸ™‚ I recommend starting slow, watch
    lots of youtube videos on how to coupon. Pick one store first and learn to
    do it there first really well πŸ™‚ Print out their coupon policy. Get their
    weekly sales circular. Find an item on sale, see if you can find a MFR
    coupon for it and perhaps a store coupon and stack them! Or just follow
    what deals other youtubers do like Foodandfashioncents, 2littledollz or
    SouthernCouponGirl for examples πŸ™‚ Have fun! πŸ™‚

  27. Beronica Frias

    Hi..i want to know how to use coupons.. iam a single mother without a job
    and childsupport is not enought my son is getting expensive and need ways
    to save..Can u help me??!?

  28. Ashley Smashley

    That’s great! I used my nesquick coupons at kroger and they doubled and
    they were free πŸ™‚

  29. HealthyPrepper

    Never did see the Kix cereal over here in our Dollar Trees but I am keeping
    my prepper peepers eternally open πŸ™‚

  30. HealthyPrepper

    It’s up to the cashier at that point. You could ask for the manager but the
    ball is in their court if the coupon won’t scan. Your best defense is that
    you have the exact item in the coupon and hope the coupon gods are on your
    side that day πŸ™‚ And remember, don’t sweat it, it is only a coupon and
    there always more right around the corner πŸ™‚ I would save the coupon and
    try it at a different store like Target πŸ™‚

  31. Bill Mar

    I live in Western NY and our coupon policy is 2 coupons per transaction, so
    I would have many transactions. Many items that I get I donate to the
    Ladies that serve our Country. Many items sent were for men, That is why I
    knew that I could make someones day to smell nice, with body wash, lotions
    shampoo, deodorant, ect. I wish that knowing what I am doing with my
    purchase that they would not make me go through so much B/S. It’s still
    rewarding even after the hassle.

  32. Tonya Rush

    Can you exlplain to me what a bvideo value coupns is. Ive heard people talk
    about getting coupons that way but no idea what it is

  33. enerzizer bunny

    r u kidding me its from dollar tree u dont need to exterame coupon

  34. Liz King

    tyfs you did great wonder though about the liners but good idea to let them
    decide super find on the loreal not seen any yet but will be looking for
    it. Our dt stores keep running out of the olay and the kix cereal.

  35. HealthyPrepper

    Yep, the cashiers do have all the power to refuse a coupon.

  36. HealthyPrepper

    Great points Stephen πŸ™‚ Yes, we must all learn to look at regular objects
    with new eyes in a prepping world πŸ™‚ If you haven’t seen it, please feel
    free to check out my playlist on Unusual uses for Common Household items
    for Preppers- hydrogen peroxide, tampons, soap, nail polish and others πŸ™‚

  37. HealthyPrepper

    I wonder if it is a state by state thing Anne?

  38. Stephen Bradley

    For some of the guys who turn away at the Pads, they can also be used in
    First Aid for serious cuts etc.. No laughing matter when you can’t stop
    bleeding to death

  39. HealthyPrepper

    I suggest letting them know this. They might be a little more gentle on you
    in the check out line if they know you are doing good with it πŸ™‚

  40. CouponFrogs

    You are most welcome. Thank you lol I couldn’t think of a name so Frogs was
    as creative as I could get!=]]

  41. HealthyPrepper

    I hear you! Patience is the key at the Dollar Tree πŸ™‚ It will pay off more
    often than not πŸ™‚

  42. Brownssugar2550

    So true love ur prep

  43. HealthyPrepper

    Video value coupon is a new term to me. I looked it up and found a good
    video on April 1 2013 from TheKrazyCouponLady. It states “The Rite Aid
    Video Value offers are Rite Aid coupons that can be stacked with
    manufacturer coupons”. Check out their site for more details πŸ™‚

  44. HealthyPrepper

    That’s what I used to think too, until I realized the money I could save
    could be used to buy the more expensive prepper items I need for my family.
    If you save a little here and a little there, it can really add up over
    time πŸ™‚

  45. Jami Garrett

    There never seems to be any name brand items at my dollar trees your so
    lucky πŸ™‚

  46. debifritzsd

    I think I’m the only one who uses coupons at our Dollar Tree! Every time
    the spend several minutes figuring out if the coupon applies. But I’m
    patient because I love my deals. My store said the policy was only 2
    coupons printed from the computer, but I can use as many newspaper type
    ones as I want.

  47. Patty Valdez

    Thanks for that wonderful tip. Last month I was looking for the Gain dry
    sheets and the manager would not take my coupon because the coupon said
    fabric enhancer and not dry sheets.

  48. HealthyPrepper

    I think The Dollar Tree is a great place to stock up on prepper items
    quickly and inexpensively in case the SHTF. While it may not be the best
    merchandise it is a great starting place πŸ™‚

  49. SeeAnnSave

    Great haul! Your Dollar Tree has awesome stuff – mine never has these
