Ready Made Resources specializes in emergency power supplies and emergency preparedness supplies and has been in business for 15 years. They have a walk in store in the Smoky Mountains that is co-powered by solar and wind as well as their online shop. Seriously helpful folks here. And until November 30th they're also having a fantastic 25% off sale on their Mountain House freeze dried foods and free shipping on cases--check out their ad on the right sidebar!
Now, you all know I love my FoodSaver. It is an amazing machine. I use it for packing food for the freezer and foods I've dehydrated to prolong their useful life. I use it to pack clothes for our Emergency Kits. You should see the compact package it makes when you vacuum pack diapers! I know you all want one or know someone who does.
Well, the folks at Ready Made Resources are feeling just that generous and have offered to send one of my readers a FoodSaver GameSaver Deluxe that retails in their store for $149.95. Okay, I'll admit it. I want it. My 10 year old FoodSaver's got nothing on this machine.
