Group Purchasing

Posted by imawheatwatcher on September 17, 2008

One of the greatest benefits we gain by working together as a group is the ability to purchase in bulk quantities at a discounted price. We have recently begun working with Emergency Essentials and Macey’s and will continue to work with Chirine Wadsworth at Alpine Food Storage. Look for more information about these programs in their own post.

As we assemble various kits and prepare in specific areas, we will organize specific group purchases to acquire those necessary items (for instance upcoming pandemic preparedness.) The group purchase items will hopefully be much less than one person could purchase retail and I would encourage all to participate if you’re able to.

While this is a great opportunity to acquire food storage and emergency preparedness items, remember that we should not get into debt to purchase these things. First focus on getting out of debt and then prepare for other emergencies.

If you have questions or suggestions for group purchases, PLEASE COMMENT. If you’re needing it, chances are good that someone else is needing it also.
