Prepare every needful thing

I have been thinking a lot lately about food storage and the need
to prepare every needful thing- I must admit I havent been the most aggressive
saint when it comes to food storage, but lately I have felt the need to do more and to
do a better job of actually listening to my prophets more carefully . And actually do what they
are advising us to do- whether its food storage or more temple attendance, (Besides my patriarchal blessing talks alot about food storage- so I guess i better listen) I know I need to heed their counsel more in my life. So I have been trying to do a better job of it. We actually canned about 40 cans that night. Just me and my 6 year old. The others only lasted about a 1/2 hour of work but KEEKERS was a champion . I also have a list of Non Food items that we also need to store- So if anyone wants it just leave a comment and a email and Ill email it to you- Its kinda cool you just put down let say how many toothpastes you use in a month and then you figure out how many you use in a year and you work towards getting all of them until you have a year supply then you move on to the next item. Ive been trying to look for stuff on sale when it comes. That way you can by more of them. Like I needed 12 dishsoaps and found them on sale at family dollar for .90cents and now I have my year supply . I also got a year supply of Shampoo and conditioner for less than $35.00- VO5 for .67cents a bottle- We have a lot of girls with long hair so we needed about 24 bottles of each 2 bottles a month. Usually monthly I don't buy Vo5 but at least I now have a year supply of it. So let me know if any of you want this list.

HAPPY BABY WITH THE CRAZY HAIR!!!!! This is where My Baby likes to hang out while im on the computer- She loves to crawl up under my chair and onto the printer- She doesnt like any toys she just wants to bother me all day. So She hangs out in her little cubby until Im off the computer. LOVE the crazy hair

Here is some more pictures of things that I have repainted and redone. for the tweens bedroom
this is shelf that was given to me and i repainted it- I got these cool picture frames and painted them the different colors of their new room.

Here is their Magnetic board that I repainted and
put the cute saying under the bottom of it. Hoping that one day
it will get through to them

Here is the desk that I repainted black. It was white and I bought it at the DI for 10 bucks. The chair was 5 bucks. And above that is the beautiful cross stich saying that keri made for me awhile ago- its so cute- I made the frame to put it in and added the pink ribbon to go with it. I love the saying:
What Lasts?
IceCream Melts
Flowers Wilt
The leaves of Autumn Fall
Sunsets fade,
Seasons change,
And children don't stay small.
Baloons pop
Snowfalls stop
Do summers last?
Weekends fly
today will die

Wow, youve been busy!!! Good job on the storage. I need to heed your example. When I saw the chair you recovered and painted I about died. We have a chair just like that, that was my grandmas. I had just recovered and painted it about a month before the flood. It survived the flood, but definately doesnt look the same. Anyways, Angel threw it in his truck to throw away a few weeks ago and I took it out and kept it. When I saw your post I had to call him and make sure he hadnt taken it to the dump where it got picked up by someone and sold to you, but no, its still on my porch. It is the same chair though. Ill give it to you if I decide to get rid of it.
