Favorite Blog Today: Preparedness Pantry- $20 Gift Card for all!


If your interested in food storage at all, Preparedness Pantry is a great blog to check out!  It's a great resource if your trying to build or maintain your storage.  

They are offering 2 ways to earn $10 gift cards to Emergency Essentials!  I just got mine in the mail today for putting their button on my blog (which I would have done anyway).  Go here for the details so you can get a $10 gift card too!

Another feature of theirs is the Food Storage Analyzer.  You just plug in what you have and it tells you what you need!  It also has TONS of recipes so you know what to do with it all.  At first you enter how many are in your family and their ages so it's totally personal to your needs.  If your serious about building a food storage, this is a great asset!  One thing to note- if your buying items from them then it's easy to add to the analyzer.  If your entering your own items it will be quite a project since it asks for nutritional information.  Good info to have, but could be a lot of work.

When you try out the FREE analyzer and post a review of it on your blog they will send you ANOTHER $10 Gift Card!!!  Details are here.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
