I have been buying rice and canned goods. Flour, sugar and such.
A little bit here and there. My bills were pretty much overwhelming this week but I still bought two cans of 1 pound 11 oz green beans for a dollar apiece.
I have a marine battery for my jon boat $80, you can get a smaller one a little cheaper, inverter from ebay for $22. In the past i was buying little solar panels on ebay for about $10 to $30. I have about 45 watts worth wth a small charge controller for $18(really cheap one). It isn't much but the power went out last winter and I was one of the only people on my block with a light, radio, and phone charger.
I usually spend what I can. From $2 to $20.
I am worried about security though.edit on 27-10-2013 by liejunkie01 because: z

I'm in the process of growing my own food, and fish in my basement. A small scale experiment. I even started with one of the hardest to grow veggies in aquaponics, cucumbers! I'm documenting it all and will write a thread about my success (or failure) in the future.

I do feel comfortable with my location and neighbors. All farms around me. Cattle and grains. The nearest town is about 2 miles from me with a population of about 2k. The next largest populated are is about 18 miles away with a population of about 50k. I am sure those folks would head in my direction seeking assistance and fleeing the masses.
