Todays treasures
Actually I think im gonna make A post about treasures during the month that I find locally.
Anyway on to the goods.
Today while shopping at one local thrift store I found A north face synthetic quick dry shirt for 1.00
I also found an unopen 12 ounce saline solution bottle for .50.
I plan to use the bottle for fuel because it has A nice cap with A spout and closure on it.
Will see how it works.
Also happened upon about 7 5 hour energy bottles empty outside the grocery. free is great.
Bought A cool coleman small battery operated lantern that will most likely be to heavy and useless for hiking but will adjust in the tiny home nicely ... it was 1.00 and needed batteries which when replaced works fine and really bright.
That was about it for today but will be sure to post next weeks treasures .

Nice finds :D Let us know how the saline bottle works as a fuel bottle. The lantern will be worth it's weight in gold when a power outage occurs. ;)

On Sat. I got an Ikea grater with storage container for 2 bucks (for home use)

Amazing so many outdoor items. Are you close to a university or college?

I recently saw a large can of chili that would make a nice pot. It was a one piece can with rounded bottom. I'll try to remember to go to the store tomorrow to get a can of it. I was at least a 3 cup capacity. Heat the chili in the can for a meal and then wash the can and have the pot for your next meals.
