Sweet Sue Is Back
I was at Food Lion today doing some shopping when I stumbled across a buy one get one free sale on Sweet Sue Chicken and Dumplings. Back in 1998 and 99, Sweet Sue played a big role in my Y2K preps and filled quite a bit of space in my basement shelving units. It's a tasty, filling stew, and can be a good change up to add variety to your storage. I got it on sale for $1.55 a can, normally $3.09. The Amazon 6 pack rate is about $3.61 a can, and you save any sales tax.
I also found Beach Cliff sardines on sale today and picked up 15 cans of mustard and Louisiana hot sauce for 79 cents each, marked down from .99. I eat them in my lunch periodically, and they are great for long term storage of protein.
Reality Check Survive 2012 Magazine
I also found a new survival magazine in the newsstand section. It is put out by American Handgunner magazine, and costs $9.95. It says Vol. 2, but I never saw Vol. 1. It looks to have a bunch of good articles on many aspects of preparedness. I'll give you a better rundown of them tomorrow. It also has a 90 page buyers guide for guns. Just a few weeks ago, I finally threw out a stack of mid-80s gun magazines, and there were a couple of buyers guides in there. Now I wish I had kept one to compare the prices from back then.
