I'm in the process of reorganizing my pantry - I'll post about this soon - and I came across a deal that could really save you money if you're in the market for storage containers.
Snapware is one of the most popular brands of storage containers for good reason. You can buy it online and in various brick and mortar stores, but it's hard to find a place that combines the whole line of Snapware with low prices and/or low shipping.
If you "like" Snapware on Facebook between now and 11/15/2010, you can get a coupon code for 40% off your next order from their website, http://www.snapware.com/. That's quite a deal! Simply go here when you're signed into Facebook, press the "like" button at the top of the page (what used to be "become a fan"), go to their wall, and get the code.
I was once pretty clueless when it came to "prepping". Follow my journey towards self-reliance as I explore gardening, food storage, canning, animal husbandry and other homesteading and survival-related topics.
