I turned in my swagbucks a month ago and used them at Amazon to buy a paper log briquette maker. We shred any papers with any personal information on them and started saving the shredded paper. We made our first paper bricks yesterday. They measure 3" x 3" x 8 3/4". For paper they are heavy and solid! I think it will take at least 2-3 more days for them to dry out enough for us to try burning them.

Transferring shelf stable recipes onto cards into second recipe box. Finding more recipes and keeping on trying them (about once a week). Picked and shucked 2 pounds of peas this morning - one in freezer. Nice amount of kale is ready, been picking twice already. Have 3.5 days of grab and go food - with menu - set up in one tote. Am shooting for a weeks worth for my family, need finish this during weekend. My "teenager" chicks are doing well, despite the heat.

Yesterday I bought 4-100 count boxes of Bunn coffee filters, 2 45 ct boxes of trash bags, 2 50 ct boxes of envelopes & 2 boxes of gallon sized freezer Ziplock bags. Very good deals on all of it.

I put up pickled okra today. This summer I have put squash, zucchini, beets, beet greens, pickles, zucchini relish, and zucchini marmalade up from my garden. I have chickens so I always have eggs in the refrigerator.

Niko, if you're interested, there are lots of recipes for homemade Shake N Bake. Stuff like that is easy to throw together and you probably already have all the ingredients. Cheaper, and you can control the salt in it too. :)
