Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
The most recent Digital Newsletter from Survival Life has been published, and in it Managing Editor ‘Above Average’ Joe and his team of contributors report on the latest news and opinion from the prepper community.
The main article comes from contributor Daisy Luther, who writes about her unfortunate financial problems and how she overcame them. The attitude of “cheap by choice” rings through the article, and Luther explains what it means.
“Hard-core frugality is not just making a choice to buy the generic brand of laundry soap instead of a jug of Tide with scent beads,” wrote Luther in the article. “Hard-core frugality is buying the ingredients to make 5 times the amount of laundry soap for half the price of that name-brand detergent, all the while loving the fact that Proctor and Gamble are not getting your money.”
Luther even goes as far as to execute a two-week challenge, essentially switching off the “want button” and maintaining a frame of mind that encourages frugality.
The next article in the Newsletter is the Survival Tip of the Day, in which Rick Shultz shares the step-by-step instructions for creating “firebugs,” his own version of foolproof fire starters.
“There are many different primitive methods of making fire, but all of them have one key problem,” wrote Shultz. “Not even the most experienced survivalist is guaranteed a warm fire every time. This is why a dependable fire starter is a vital piece of any survival equipment”
After following his directions, preppers can “have a bunch of the finest fire starters I know of at a fraction of the cost of one package of store bought fire starters and these will out-perform all of them.”
The last Newsletter article is from the Practical Prepper section, and in it Joe reviews a survival tool with an unpleasant subject. “No matter how much or how little you eat, it’s all eventually gotta come out somewhere,” wrote Joe.
“Most of the time you hold it until you get to the next available restroom, do your business, and all is right with the world again. Unfortunately in any type of grid down situation, no matter how much you jiggle the handle, it’s not going to flush,” the article said.
Joe reviews a portable toilet seat, and helps people understand the best way to use them and avoid messy mistakes.
