10 Things To Do This Weekend

Some stuff to add to your "to do" list:

  1. Watch the solar eclipse.
  2. Revamp your BOB for the summer season.
  3. Have a garage sale and put the proceeds in your emergency fund.
  4. Hit up the loss leaders at local grocery stores and add the items to your food stockpile.
  5. Watch one of these Surviving Disaster episodes.
  6. Have you ever pickled a watermelon?  Made beef jerky?  Experiment with food preservation this weekend.
  7. If you live in an area where wildfires are common, clean out the overgrown stuff around your house and make a fire break.
  8. Go dumpster diving (especially if you live in a college/university town where kids who are returning home for the summer throw out expensive, perfectly usable stuff).
  9. Have you started your garden yet?  If nothing else, pick up a plant start at the local Walmart/home store and try to grow a tomato or herb plant.
  10. Get some exercise this weekend--go for a hike, go shooting, or try something more challenging.
