Hi. Here's an informal post about how easy it can be to start stocking up for an emergency, even if you have very little money. Over time, you will find that the more you stock up, the more money you save. It is SO unbelievably helpful. If you can't afford to stock up on 25 pound bags of food, start with 5 pound bags, as I did through Azurestandard.com. Here are some basic, really cheap and nutritious staples that I think are great to stat off with. Sunflower seeds may save the most money, since they deter hunger. (They can be mixed w/ healthier oil+ sea-salt). Corn cannot be guaranteed to be non-GMO unless stated. (All popcorn and blue corn is currently GMO-free). Oats, cereal cannot be guaranteed to be GF unless stated. Therefore, I am offering alternate links...

5# Roasted sunflower kernels, $10.90 - (Salted, $10.90 - Raw, $8.10 - Raw, Organic, $10.70 - Farm&Fleet, 6#, $5.97)

5# Split Peas, $4.95 (Organic) - (Regular, $4.15)

5# Lentils, $3.90 - (Organic, $8.00)

5# Cornmeal, $4.50 - (Organic, $5.45)

5# Organic Popcorn, $4.95 - (1# Nacho popcorn/ taco flavoring, $7.05!)

5# Mighty Tasty Hot cereal, $7.95 - (Bob's GF, $11.45 - GF, Rolled OATS, $10.40)

1# Nutritious, Iodine-Rich Icelandic Kelp, $6.45 - (Organic, *possibly West-Coast origin?*, $3.15 )

Total Cost w/o shipping = $43.60

Shipping from AzureStandard, (541/223-5640), can be FREE if:
1 - You are on one of their many delivery routes, such as along the NW Coast.
2 - You agree or arrange to pick up your order at one of their nearby drop-off points.
3 - You create and account and make your order over $50.
(Note - fresh veggies, frozen, cold-food, are all available via these delivery routes).

Turns out I am not on any of their delivery routes. I'm about 20 minutes away from one, but I don't drive, and I wouldn't be able to get a ride to that particular area. I don't think I'd save quite enough on shipping for it to be worth the amount I'd spend on a taxi...:/ Oh well! Thanks for this though, I'm still definitely planning on ordering a little at a time from them, they have a massive amount of great deals there!!!! :)

There is a cheap bus I think that goes from here to Portland and back. However, I think I heard either there's an issue with the timing, or it only runs a couple of times a day. So basically if one were to miss that bus, one would be in very very deep shit. :(

I'm curious about this hacker. Is this someone bothering you, LJ in general, or do you think it's the one I have been bothered by? Cuz I honestly don't think the one I've dealt with would be even at all concerned with it...
