heeheee, I have five dogs, I know where you're coming from. I figure they will pay their dues for awhile with protecting me from looters hopefully in a world-crisis, maybe take my bloodhound out and her nose can find food for us.AWESOME THREAD!!!! :heartsm:
Let's see, if we're talking semi-dire situation, I will wash and reuse baggies and foil. I will switch to the cheapest paper towels and toilet paper. I'll skip the dryer and hang clothes to keep the utility bill down. And I'll get rid of satelite and land line phone. But I will NOT skip the OB tampons even if I have to sell blood and plasma to buy a box (icky mental picture there, yuck, sorry!), will not use hankies instead of kleenex, and will not use cloth toilet paper.
In a very very dire situation, everything and anything is on the table, with the exception of skipping vet care for my fur-baby. I'll skip the doctor before I skip the vet for her....now that's not to say that if she died a natural death in an end of the world as we know it situation she wouldn't then be put on the menu...after all these years of top tier food and vet care, I'm sure she'd be delicious!
That is pretty much me. I have had to change my tune over time as things have gotten worse as to what I won't do or give up though.I would never sacrifice safety or do something dishonest to save a few dollars.
