Safely Gathered In: Weekly Roundup 8/25-8/30

Want What You Have has a great post on making your own spice packets by buying more common spices in bulk and mixing them to make packets like taco seasoning etc,.

I enjoyed the post on You Are What You Eat by The Obsessive Shopper. I actually like having an organized meal schedule, but sometimes what I'm planning on making for dinner just doesn't sound good, so it's a great idea to have a "favorites" menu with recipes close on hand. Maybe a list of your 3-Month Supply meals, because you'll always have ingredients for those on hand!

The Happy Housewife has a good article on things you can do to pinch pennies! Put the extra money towards food storage! She didn't say that, that advice is directly from me.
