In today’s age of ‘out sourcing’, almost every product we buy has ‘made in china’ or a similar country attached. When we pick up our phone to make a customer service call, our calls are often transferred over seas. In this day and age ‘made in America’ has become something rather rare.

According to the ABC News, if every American bought $3.33 worth of American made goods every week we could create 10,000 jobs.

In many areas of the country, we know just how bad those jobs are needed. It’s basic economics. Spend money on goods made in your area, this creates jobs in your area, and stimulates the economy and helps it grow in your area.

We love our country! We have the best country in the world! So, lets show out support for our country! If spending just $3.33 on American Goods creates 10,000 jobs imagine what $9.99 would do!

We have strong work ethic standards in this country. When we buy American made goods, we know the workers received fair wages and fair conditions. When we buy American goods we know the goods meet health and other standards and regulations we have in this country to ensure quality.

So, take some time. Turn over the products on the shelf. Look for Made in The USA.

Many companies are opening, building, or reestablishing factories here in the USA. So, you will be seeing more made in the USA!

Love Chocolate? Mars Chocolate announced it’s building its first new chocolate factory in the U.S. in 35 years!

Another great way to ensure you are getting American Made goods, Shop With Shelf Reliance & Thrive.

Shelf Reliance is an American Based Business. Your personal consultant in someone you know and trust. By shopping with Shelf Reliance, you are stimulating your local economy, buying US goods, and buying delicious high quality foods.

So hop on over to My Online Store and spend your $3.33 toward the cause!

Made In America. Buy with pride in your country & your community.

2.Couponing

Couponing is a great way to make sure your home store is stocked with all those important items Shelf Reliance doesn’t carry (yet). Have you ever been *in* the shower and realised you were out of shampoo? Your home store should contain these necessary items. This is where couponing comes in! You can stock up on these items for FREE! 

Couponing is easier now than ever before! Everything I know about couponing I learned from The Bargain Hunting Mom

I also love CouponMom.com! It’s free and helps you know when & how to use your coupons to get the very best price!

I am also very excited about The Bargain Hunting Mom’s Price Match Report! With this handy report, I do not have to run all over town matching my coupons to the stores with the best prices to get my free and almost free goodies! I use my report and have Wal-Mart match the prices! Their new price match guarantee policy means I just need to know the sale price and what store it is at. This saves me tons of time and money! And, helps me get lots of free goodies for my home store!!

Couponing is easier now than ever!! 

 

Your home store is your security net. It is your food insurance. It is convenience. It is healthy food waiting for you. It is quick meals. And it is what you want when you need it.

We all love free. So why not take these great opportunities to stock your home store for free!!

Jaime at Thriving Food Storage, Posted this delicious granola bar recipe. I thought you might enjoy it!

Granola Bars

A few days ago my sister who has helped me with the design of my blog sent me a txt asking when I changed my blog.  I had no idea what she was talking about as I had not changed anything on it.  After a minute she realized she was at the wrong blog.  She went to self reliance by Jamie.I can see how she would get that confused with mine.  We have the same name and I sell Shelf reliance products.  Anyways I asked her to send me the link to the blog so I could take a look.  I was very impressed with what I was seeing.  I looked through her blog and found some yummy sounding recipes and great info.  I love a good food storage/emergency preparedness blog and another I have found.I am all about making homemade when I can.  I have been trying for about a year now to find a good granola bar recipe.  I have tried several different recipes and they have all tasted good. BUT when I go to cut them into bars they either crumble or fall apart when I pick them up.  My other problem is I compare them to store bought granola bars.  With these I need to remember that the homemade bars are not going to be like the store bought bars.  Anyways Jamie at self reliance by Jamie  about a year ago posted a recipe for granola bars.  They looked and sounded good so I tried her recipe yesterday.  Oh my goodness….I found my granola bar recipe.  Thanks Jamie!  These not only taste good but I was able to cut them into bars and they held up!!!Granola Bars

4 1/2 c rolled oats (regular, not quick)
1 c flour ( I like to use whole wheat flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 c butter, melted
1/2 c honey
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c mini chocolate chips (raisins, craisins, other dried fruit, whatever you like!)
Combine all ingredients but the chocolate chips (or whatever you are putting in). Mix and then add the chocolate chips in and mix again. Press into a greased pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 18-22 minutes. Enjoy!!
**this is a basic recipe. . . if you like other things, try putting them in and make it your own recipe! Nuts, seeds, coconut, peanut butter. . . the options are endless!**
Don’t these look yummy!! I can’t wait to make them for my family!!

For today’s ‘Fave’, I want to share with you another one of my favorite things about Shelf Reliance, The Q Club. 

I like to shop. I like convenience. And I especially love rewards and discounts. With the Q Club, I get them all!

When you sign up for your Q, you choose your Q club membership. Then, watch the food and rewards stack up!

What is The Q?

The Q, is your ‘pay as you go’ option for building your home store or food storage. The Q takes the stress and guess work out of building and maintaining your home store. You create your own plan using the Thrive Planner, or simply add the products you like, or both. I can even set your Q up for you! With the Q, you set your budget. Think about your families favorite recipes. How much of your food budget would you like to reallocate to Thrive foods? And if your situation changes, don’t worry, after 3 months you can change your budget as needed. You decide what day of the month you are billed. Everything is customizable. You choose your foods, set your budget, and relax as the food is delivered right to your door each month. Before your know it, you have a fully stocked home store, and didn’t  break the bank! It was all done within your personal budget.

How Prepared are you? If you and your family had to evacuate, what would you take? If you faced a power outage, how would you eat? What would you do in a disaster situation?

Most of us are not prepared. It is just not something you think about. Unless you live in an area with hurricanes, you have probably never had to think about evacuation. You can read about my recent ‘Wake up Call’ to the importance of being prepared here. In the middle of Texas, we were facing a situation in which we may need to evacuate with 5 minutes notice! We were completely and totally unprepared!!

Both Fema and the Red Cross recommend you have a 72 Hour Kit.

So What is a 72 Hour Kit?

A 72 hour kits is your basic supplies and necessities for 72 hours. You need one kit or bag for every member of your family. This kit is something you can grab and go. It can be very simple,containing the bare essentials, or it can be very detailed containing all sorts of survival tools and essentials.

Here are the FEMA recommendations for the your kit:

An emergency can happen at anytime & any place!

Since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, prepare supplies for home, work, and vehicles.

Home Work Car
Your disaster supplies kit should contain essential food, water, and supplies for at least three days.Keep this kit in a desig­nated place and have it ready in case you have to leave your home quickly. Make sure all family members know where the kit is kept.Additionally, you may want to consider having supplies for sheltering for up to two weeks. This kit should be in one container, and ready to “grab and go” in case you are evacuated from your workplace.Make sure you have food and water in the kit. Also, be sure to have com­fortable walking shoes at your workplace in case an evacuation requires walking long distances. In case you are strand­ed, keep a kit of emer­gency supplies in your car.This kit should contain food, water, first aid supplies, flares, jumper cables, and seasonal supplies.

 

Shelf Reliance makes being prepared easy!

Many emergencies don’t allow time for people to assemble even the most basic items, which makes it all the more necessary to own the supplies your family requires. Shelf Reliance offers first aid kits and outdoor gear that you can add to your own emergency kit with our Emergency Planner. Simply enter your family’s information and select a few personal settings, and the planner will provide you with a list of all the materials you need. Customize your emergency kit today using the Shelf Reliance Emergency Kit Planner.

Shelf Reliance also offers several pre-assembled emergency kits. Here are just a few of the great kits offered. You can see all the pre-assembled kits here.
