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).

Not quite an Emergency, but the mod invited us to post here.  So thank you for any help.

My co-writer and I wrote a book for low income singles, two groups often neglected with budgeting books.  It's fairly cheap, but in the interest of making it freely available to those most in need of financial advice, we're asking you to ask your library to buy a copy.  This Amazon listing shows the ISBN number and all necessary info.

Since I was asked elsewhere: This is U.S. centric book.  I'd love to do editions for other countries, but one thing at a time. :)
