This week I veered off course a bit with the food supplies in favor of disposable plates. They were on special at K-mart for $1.50 and I had a coupon making them only $.50. I purchased four sets. Normally I really dislike using disposable plates and napkins and I even wash and reuse the plastic cutlery, but my thinking is that if there is some type of emergency, we may not want to use clean water for washing dishes if it is limited. I also thought the paper could be used to help start a fire when we finish with them. I also picked up a couple of lighters on sale at Safeway. They were marked down from $3.49 and with coupon and doubles they came to only $1.49 each. So the total for the week was $4.98.
