January 31, 2015 — Before "social media" was even a phrase we were hosting our own social media right here on our bulletin board. We loved interacting with Monolithic Dome enthusiasts from all over the world. However, with the advent of social media the need for the BBS has evaporated. Posts are now few and far between. The BBS is now locked as a read only resource to preserve the many frustrations and successes of the past. This isn't the end. We will be focusing our efforts on monolithic.org as well as social media. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or subscribe to our News Feed.
To all those who contributed to the success of this BBS — THANK YOU!
Well my mom told me to never go grocery shopping while I was hungry. Not sure if that works or not, I never go grocery shopping
Most people I know trying to save money on grains buy them in 50lb bags (wheat bran is an exception, as it comes in 25lb bags) at their local natural-food stores. Usually, a 10% discount is given for pre-ordering bulk items. (Money-saving tip: never buy anything that is "organic". Always order non-organic.) If one is going to store food in one's home, it is a good idea to keep the humidity and the temperature low (especially in the summer; thick, snug-fitting window-plugs and aluminized mylar can help here). Storing food in a garage is always a bad idea. (If one's bulk food goes bad or is eaten or soiled by vermin or bugs, one is not saving very much money after all.) One should also read Alan T. Hagan's Food Storage FAQ, and ask Alan any further questions over at CurEvents.Ula Oh wrote:Has any one ever heard of buying grain- oats and such- from an Ag feed store for human consumption?
A lot of folks at TB2K and CurEvents say they buy their pharmaceuticals (penicillin, etc.) over-the-counter at feed stores.Ula Oh wrote:Is that even safe?
One can spend zero if he knows how to dumpster dive and knows where to get the free food that the homeless get (a lot of shelters have free food that is kicked down as tax writeoffs from local stores and distributors). Don't worry about pulling up in a car. Most homeless people live in their cars. It is a good idea to carry a cell phone, though, since most homeless people have cell phones and one would therefore look strange without one.Ula Oh wrote:I heard of this first from a book about spending only a dollar a day on food
