    Our Walmart seems to attract a rougher crowd, and I just dislike Walmart. I know the DG manager and she is always very helpful. Here, their prices are pretty good, especially when compared to the local family-owned groceries.

    For the second year in a row Iíve bought quite a bit of Tide and Gain at Dollar General for $1.95, both the liquid and the pods. They put them on sale for usually $3.95 or $4.95 and I combine those sale prices with the $2 and $3 P&G July coupons and it makes for some cheap detergent. And as Barb said you have to watch their prices. Iíve picked up name brand disposable razors for $1/pack after sale prices and coupons.

    Garlic

    This is jumbo garlic that I bought at a yard sale today, compared to
    my normal sized bulb. The man said it isnít elephant garlic, but a variety heís grown for 40 years, and doesnít remember the name of it. I bought several bulbs to plant this fall.

    Getting more worried about the food shortages but this isn't my week to buy groceries and $$ were allocated elsewhere.
    I've got shorts with good pockets and even back pockets (mostly some I've had a while) and some with skimpy front pockets the even a lip balm will fall out of. I need my pockets because I have pocket stuff that I want on me all the time. I really like having back pockets, a bandanna in one and a thin pair of leather gloves in the other. The front pockets on one side is a vicks inhaler, a small leatherman with scissors, a buck knife, a round tin of vicks, Ice drops breath mints and one of those round compressed towels, the other pocket a small flash light, a colored chap stick, and two lip balms and a tiny container of pink salt. I always want these things with me, never know when I might need something. And then there is my cross body purse. . . .

    When you get dressed each morning, you really get dressed! I admire that.

    For the summer, I wear long lounge dresses, no pockets, for my around the house work clothes. I've looked and looked for ones that have pockets, but can't find any. Even if they have pockets, they are mostly for decoration instead of being practical. I order mine from Blair. They have lots of shorts, too.

    I checked them out, Barb. They don't carry anything in my size, though. I'm a size 8 petite.

    Thanks, anyway. I appreciate it. I'll just stick with ordering my pool loungers from Blair. They have lots of petite sizes to pick from. I've ordered lots of different styles and colors to wear now, and to put in storage for later use. Some are in my prep clothing storage bags. Vacuum sealed. It pays to wait for them to go on sale with free shipping, though.

    Anyone else do clothing preps?

    I did some canning this week, despite the heat. I canned 14 quarts of vegetable soup, 9 pints of taco sauce, and I just put 7 quarts of potatoes in the canner. Tomorrow I’m hoping to pick jalapeŮos and get them canned.
    I could make it cheaper!!!
