Lehman’s is truly the homesteader and prepper’s dream store.  They’ve got everything you can imagine for living a more independent and resilient life.  Family owned and operated since 1955, I highly recommend them as a source for tools to improve your self reliance.




Whether you’re just getting started, or aren’t getting the results you’re after, Hooked On Phonics could be the answer.  It definitely has worked for us and I can strongly recommend it for your homeschooling needs.  It’s effective and affordable and sure to get your little ones reading in no time.

For years I have trusted Mountain Rose Herbs to supply my family with the highest quality herbs and spices for my kitchen and herbal medicine needs.  

I have not been able to find a more reliable and comprehensive supplier.  I love the fact that they are very clear on the country of origin of their products and they maintain highly competitive prices.

I personally recommend Medical Gear outfitters for all your first aid and emergency medical supplies.
