YOU KNOW YOUR A PREPPER when....
 
.....every time you go shopping you come home with water and bleach with your groceries.
 
.....you planted fruits and/or veggies and have no lawn left.
 
....you don't want a vacation but instead the best water purification system.
 
.....you beg your kids for their car tires so you can plant 100lbs of potatoes in five tires. (and it cost more for the dirt and straw than the potatoes would.)
 
....your kids buy you a green house for Easter and you make them spend the day assembling it.
 
....you can't wait for one more kid to move out so you can use their bedroom for prep space.
 
.....for Christmas you put hand santizer in their christmas stockings and No-rad.
 
.....your kids want to start a support group for you.
 
.....the power goes out, every fleas to your house.
 
....you jump for joy in Walmart when you find a solar-powered camp light, and you buy three!
 
~written by Trisha, Roxy's daughter......sorry I couldn't resist.

You know you're a prepper when you're thinking about giving out little bags of rice instead of candy at Halloween.

You know you are a prepper when you go on vacation and still buy a few cans of soup while out of town because they are such a good deal and you never know.

(my husband was not amused) LOL

You know you're a prepper when your fish tank looks like a source of food and water.

Just make sure you have plenty of blood pressure meds to counteract the salt in the country hams!!Dead
 
We got one last year for Christmas and soaked it for 48 hours.  It was still unbelievably salty.  I am still stocking up on them because flavoring in beans (black, navy, pinto, small red, large red, blackeye peas, split peas, yellow peas, lets see what else do I have!!??LOL) will be good.  I have heard of food exhaustion over eating the same thing for days and weeks and people get sick of it and quit eating.

You know you are a prepper when you have 10 5 pound bags of flour in the freezer to kill bug larvae.
 
You know you are a prepper when your freezer is empty but your shelves, closets, spare rooms, under your bed.... is full of various and sundry canned foods.

My mom's mom lived through WWII (UK) with a large family and always a very full pantry, (12 bags of sugar was normal) ultimate boost yesterday when mom said to me "Your nan would be proud of you".

There are so many of these I relate to,
You know you're a prepper when...

You've more salt stashed than the store has on it's shelves - and you never use it in cooking.

You know you're a prepper when you call Harris Teeter and special order 100 calls on whole canned chickens.  I didn't have the heart to tell him it was for me, so told him it was for a family reunion!

You know you're a prepper when you won't allow your husband to throw out the sand from the kid's sandboxes for winterizing because you think you might be able to use it for a "potatoe cooler" or for a last ditch water filter.

 Hi for Abbie&Mattie, do you have the phone number or website for the whole cans of chicken?  I would like to order some.  Thanks

MississippMama:  Sure.... I went and got a can.  OK... I'll put everything off the can because I don't know what your particular store will need to get it for you.  Again, I special ordered it through Harris Teeter (at no extra charge.)  From the kitchens of "Sweet Sue" and it's titled, "Canned Whole Chicken without Gilblets"  FULLY COOKED, Net weight is 50 oz. or 3 lbs. 2 oz. Manufactured by Sara Lee Foods, Questions call 1-800-633-3294.  Call that number and they can tell you who a supplier is in your area or who can special order for you in your area. 
 
We ordered 100 cans.  They come 6 cans to a case if you're ordering them by the case.  They have been great, and when we went to the beach this summer we took 2 cans and some rice and made chicken and rice two nights in our hotel room (it had a kitchen.)  You can add anything to it or just eat it straight out of the can.  There is enough broth off of it that you can really make two meals out of it, by saving some of the brothe and putting it over pasta the next night as a flavoring.  We've done that just to experiment with them and it was great.  :-)

MississippMama:  I just ordered 6 cans of the whole chickens from Amazon.com for $35.00 plus shipping.  I will put the link in here  http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0002QEYYK/nextag-gourmet-20/ref=nosim  but if it doesn't work just search for Sweet Sue on Amazon and is should come up.  Good luck.

Try the grocery store first, special order, it's cheaper.... I think I paid 3.66 a can at the store and didn't have to pay a shipping.  But JonMccr, that's good to know that you can order off of Amazon, I have a friend that would want to know that to order as he's "very remote."
Thanks!!

You know you're a prepper when you refuse to throw out any of your boxes because you know you can stash preps in them and hide them in the attic if the bad guys come.

You know you are a prepper when after you finish organizing your preps you pat yourself on the back and state outloud:  "There, I am all done.  I feel great - I do not need anything else."  Then go to Target to buy a gift for a grandchild and fill your car with vegetable cans because they have such a  great  expiration date!

Thanks 4abbie&maddie and JonMccr!!  That's fantastic!  I just ordered the cans of whole chicken from Amazon because my time is really restricted.  I also noticed they had chicken and dumplings from the same brand, but I could not go any further, my purse is flat.
 
So..., here it goes, again:  you know you are a prepper when you get excited because somebody mentions whole chickens in a can!

Grandma: They sell that brand of chicken and dumplings at Dollar General and Big Lots, among other places, so you'll be able to get the dumplings and chicken a lot easier than the whole chickens.

You know you're a prepper when you find yourself picking apart the "cool" crafts your kids made but no longer care about and storing the pieces for when we're sheltering.
Also know you're a prepper when you spend five hours online scoping out seed sales but don't have the faintest idea how to plant a garden!



(This thread has so many good ideas and funnies in it, thought the newbies would get a real kick out of it.... I read it aloud to my husband tonight and he laughed and said, "Well, you've not done THAT yet" and "Don't get any ideas!" to some of the funnies!
