Bought a pair of 4-in-1 night lights at Costco (they serve as blackout lights and flash lights... I guess it's 3-in-1????), at half the Amazon listed price.

Also, purchased a new 20 lbs fire extinguisher. Living in the country, with the nearest VFD some 15 kms away, I think I need to do anything I can to edge my bets against an accidental fire.

Survived a fire prevention brief at work last week. Thing I learned though is that dry them fire extinguishers are only good for 12 years (date usually printed under the bottom) but if kept upright - like they usually are - the powder would turn into "concrete" at the bottom well before that date. The good firefighter suggested to give those extinguishers a good rubber mallet "beating" every 6 months or so. Just did this with the 3 I own.

I made it to the big city today and got some shopping done. This is from Super Store. Bags of powdered milk. 22 dollars for 2.5 kg, it was 24.00 a bag just a month ago.

They have about half their beans/peas and such on sale. Those yellow stickers say 2 for 5 dollars. The bags are 1.8kgs each( a couple bags 1.6kgs), so that's 3.6 kgs of things ....like black beans,spit peas, chick peas for 5 bucks. Pretty good pricing, haven't seen them that cheap since around 2011-2012

I also realized I have been mixing up Food for Less and Super Store when I have said where I bought things before...its Super Store I usually find the best deals.

The closest Super Store we have is 4.5 hours away from us, so we are stuck with The Wholesale Club or No Frills. Of these two, No Frills is 10 to 20% less than the Wholesale Club, on a lot of things; but the large quantity stuff is only available at the WC. When I start to run low on something, I write the cost of what I need in my shopping list notebook on one trip then get what I need the next. I try, sometimes very successfully to beat these guys at their own price game. My last win was on Lemonade powder in a large can. They (I was getting 2) both scanned wrong, so I got one free. Saved me $13.00. I was pleased with that.
Planning a trip to Kelowna in the New Year, so will get to Costco, Super Store, and a big Walmart Super Center. Will do a big stock up then.

Well, for Xmas, my brother in law got me a rifle cleaning rod & Les Stroud's Survive book. I didn't tell him I've already read it -it was from the library so I like having a book like that for permanent reference. My mom renewed my shooting association membership for my birthday :)

Fur....

A Fur hat. Its becoming a miserable winter here! :)

I've never owned fur before..but now see the allure! It is warm, effective against the wind chill...albeit a tad expensive. But I'm sold on the old fashioned technology and will be adding more fur to my winter garb. If you havn't tried it..I recommend it. You'll never be so warm!
