I began writing about saving money around clothing, at the end of May, thinking that one step for the next blog post would be within the week! That turned out to be a full 1.5 months later!!! I will be able to carry on with that momentarily, but first, I need to address the changing face of keeping the basics on hand around house and home. This goes for pretty much every family out there, but I am putting it here as a free tool that will come with this article, is being maintained by The Solo-Mom Agape Resource Tactician in partnership with Ixthus Catacombs.
If you are not yet familiar with Ixthus Catacombs, you want to be, particularly if you live in France, Cuba, Venezuela, or Israel. If by the time you read this, you belong to another country that has also decided to limit economic behaviour for those who can’t or won’t take the “vaccine” for any reason, then mentally add your country to the list.
The fact is, life as we knew it before March 2020, and in some cases going back to October 2019, isn’t returning for most people. If they choose to accept the gene therapy known as the COVID-19 “vaccine”, they risk cardiovascular issues or death, among the increasing list of “vaccine” injuries being reported. This is their ticket to staying employed, shopping, going to the concert or the game, etc. Imagine literally putting your life on the line, just to go out for the night?! If they choose to reject the gene therapy for any reason, health reasons included, they might not be able to keep their job, go shopping, or go to the concert, but their risk of dying will be no greater than it was prior to COVID-19.
Hmmm. . . if you ask me, I’d rather go the second route! Did I tell you I’m a societal rebel??? I’d rather keep my health than give it up for the sake of a global medical coup! But how am I doing to do that if I can’t go shopping? How do I continue to provide basic necessities for my family if I can’t buy any of it?
Well, chances are, at least as of the time of this writing, I can still go shopping online. Bank accounts are not yet frozen, virtual wallets haven’t been seized. Curb-side pickup may still be a thing in some areas, and the mail and couriers are still delivering. This means I have time to plan, and if necessary, purchase what I need to do what I’ll have to do when those things aren’t happening anymore.
This is where my new tool comes into play. Some of you need this sooner than others. This is a spreadsheet printed to PDF so you can print it out on paper and fill it in with a pencil or pen. I recommend a pencil so that you can change things as necessary. This tool will help you in a few ways:
- First, it will help you figure out what you and your family take for granted around your house and home and in the fridge.
- Secondly, it will help you figure out what you and your household can do for yourselves, and what your immediate community can do to fill in the gaps. As noted in the welcome message of this tool, it will be helpful to give this tool to everyone you note in the various pages so that they aren’t caught unprepared either.
- Thirdly, this tool will help you and your family decide if push came to shove, you could live without various items on your list that no one around you can fill in the gaps for. Not having them wouldn’t do you in or threaten your health in any way. It may even help you streamline your grocery shopping so that you are spending less and have money available to purchase any tools you may need to provide other items on the list on your own.
My daughter and I are foragers, so we already make our own shampoos, toothpaste, ph rebalancer for two of us, deodorant for two of us, several medicines and topical medical treatments. We know what we can throw into wild salads, make salad vinaigrettes, meat rubs, etc. As noted in the previous blog article at the end of May, my handsewing is expanding to uses I wasn’t aware I could do.
This is the fun thing about discovery. You might very well be able to meet one of your household’s needs, using a skill you didn’t know you had. It just takes educating yourself on how to do it safely with what you have on hand or for minimal cost, then experimenting.
If you have room for a balcony, patio, or backyard garden, you have room to grow your own herbs and vegetables. Not everyone has room to homestead, but everyone has room to provide at least one thing for themselves whether it is food or household related. If you’ve never gardened or made anything useful for yourself or others before, now is the time to start exploring those capabilities.
Without further adieu, let me introduce you to: Our Home Supply Chain Discovery Tool This list is not exhaustive in the slightest, so by all means add to it as exhaustively as you can for your situation. Each list, particularly the last few pages, were built asking “if I need this, what is required to make it available?” and then going as far as I can up every supply chain necessary to make that item available. As you go through this tool, you’ll start seeing references to supply chains already built in the Tool. Not everything is on here however. Delivery for packages once delivery companies stop delivering to the unvaxxed, will become a need in the supply chains. Runners, cyclists, etc will need their own supply chains to be available to bring you your order.
This tool, in combination with Ixthus Catacombs, is designed to help you live in community and as community, meet each other’s needs. This tool is provided free of charge to all who need it, so feel free to pass it around as you see fit.
