20% Back-to-School sale

I love it when the kids go back to school, not only for the half-day of peace, but for all of the sales on everything from school supplies to clothing. One of my favorite types of sales is from online modern fabric stores like ilovefabric!

And to make things even better, the fabric store provided a 20% sitewide discount for all in-stock items (excluding patterns) to their fabric newsletter. Use discount code BTS20 (“Back to School 20% off”).

My personal favorite fabric collections at the shop:

More to come when we see more great deals on fabric.

Nitro-Pak Super Black Friday Sales

I love this time of year for stocking up on emergency supplies and checking key items off my prep list!

I also like to rotate out my freeze dried food around Thanksgiving. One of our family traditions is to spend 2 days eating only freeze dried food BEFORE Thanksgiving. This not only rotates out some freeze dried food, is good “practice” because you don’t want to experience freeze dried food for the first time during an emergency, but perhaps more importantly, it really accentuates the message of Thanksgiving.

As you know, we love Nitro-Pak in general, so to add Black Friday deals on top of that is amazing! With winter approaching, the Ebola scare and all the rest of the geo-political tensions, preparing your family to survive for a short period of time is ever more prudent now than ever.

So, speech over! Here are some of our favorites:

Lots, lots more on sale. Go have a look and fill up your emergency supplies wish list!

Petco Coupon Code

Coupon codes for online pet stores like Petco are hard to find because online retailers are running fewer of them due to the coupon aggregation sites and smart consumers always using Google to search for Petco Coupon Code.

However, online retailers do often provide special links such as this Petco Coupon – $7 off $70.

All you have to do is click on the link (new window will open) and your $7 discount will be applied at checkout. No coupon codes needed – just follow the link above.

What I love about Petco is it always has competitive prices (including free shipping) vs. the other pet stores and, but in addition to that you can use this coupon and accumulate Pet Pals rewards. I like to wait for one of their 30% or 40% site-wide sales in addition to using the link above for another $7.

For those that want to buy a lot of pet products, with free shipping, you can submit multiple orders if you can get to be just about $70, you’ll take advantage of this discount multiple times. Who needs a Petco Coupon Code? We have discount links!

The Ready Store 30% off Independence Day Sale / Nitro-Pak 32% off !

This is one of my the best times of year to be a prepper. Whether you are starting out fresh and new to build your bug-out and stay-in kits, or just need to add a few items to your survival stash, check out The Ready Store’s up-to 30% off site-side sale!

In many cases,  the Ready Store often has the lowest prices or otherwise very competitive, even compared to Nitro-Pak – which has “up to 32% off sale” not to be undone by The Ready Store.   I always check both when I am shopping for survival gear.  Sometimes one site has a sale while the other does not, so with some quick comparison shopping you can always find the best deals.

Here are some examples of checking both sites and also some of my favorites:

Mountain House #10 freeze dried food – Sweet Corn:

Mountain House #10 freeze dried food – Mexican Chicken & Rice:

Water Storage Containers:

  • This 16-gallon stackable storage container isn’t just for water but also any food such as dry dog food (or cat food, of course).
  • A 7-gallon Reliance water container is the perfect size. I like the larger units like the 16-gallon one but there may be cases where you need to quickly load the car with some water and lifting these 7-gallon containers are much easier.

Remember, a gallon of water weighs 8.36-lbs so 7-gallons is 59-lbs (27-kg) already!  A 16-gallon water container will weigh 134-lbs (61-kg). I don’t mind having to fill up more smaller 7-gallon containers but having the versatility.  Also, check your local Walmart as they usually have these 7-gallon Reliance water containers, too. I have half a garage full of them every time they are at the Walmart the price is less than online (you pay sales tax but don’t have to pay shipping for large awkward sized packages).

If you do buy water containers online, see if you qualify for free shipping.

Lots of other items on sale, so go take a look at take advantage of the July 4th sales!
