Why I Hate Valentine’s Day

Why I Hate Valentine’s Day Or maybe I’m just bitter… You probably expected me to write about all of the cool products you can get for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day right? Well this week, I have taken a break from writing product reviews to express my feelings about my least favorite holiday of the year. That’s right. I hate Valentine’s Day. First off, do you know that this holiday was originally intended to celebrate Saint Valentine’s death? Legend has it in third century Rome, this priest named Saint Valentine illegally performed marriages in secret during a time when men were…

Can’t Afford Christmas?

Can’t Afford Christmas? If buying presents for friends and family stresses you out every year because you can’t afford Christmas, you are not alone. And if you live in a one income household like me, it can make budgeting for the holidays extremely challenging. You still have your regular December bills you have to pay but now you have to scrounge up even more money to afford Christmas presents. How are you going to do it all? Over the years, the members of our family have gone through some rough times, so we have established some traditions that have helped us have a budget friendly…

17 Products for Preppers

17 Products for Preppers

Today I am going to talk about 17 products for preppers. My husband Brian is interested in this type of thing and I think it’s a really neat idea. But what is a prepper you ask? See translation from Google below: What is a prepper?

Some people think that preppers are crazy lunatics, and of course there are quite a few that fit that bill. While my husband is not what I would consider a lunatic (most of the time), I really like the fact that he just wants the family to be ready in the case of an emergency. So since Brian feels like the world might be coming to an end in the foreseeable future, he has put together what is called a “Bug Out Box”. Gah, I hate that word because It makes me think of a box full of bugs. Yuck!

But anyway a bug out box is a container that keeps emergency supplies handy that you can just grab and go in the event of an emergency. Or a nuclear melt-down. Or a Zombie apocalypse. Or the Rapture – because, let’s be honest, if such a thing were real, me and him aren’t going anywhere. And chances are, neither are YOU! In all seriousness, I am not that concerned about the above events happening, but it is good to have something handy in the case of emergencies. So because I love my husband, and I think it’s a neat idea, I am always on the lookout for items that might be helpful additions to our bug out box.
