Your Independent Consultant

Welcome and thanks for checking us out! Like many, the latest events in the US and world have made my family take a look at becoming thriftier and more self reliant.  THRIVE Life is a part of our families plan.

We are canning, couponing and building food storage so in a down turn market, in a natural disaster, in a man made disaster our family will have food.  Plus we can help others if need be.

One of the biggest obstacles for us and many is the cost of food storage.  How do you know what to buy?  Does it taste good?  What's the quality - I don't want to eat or feed my family junk?  THRIVE Life is the answer to all those questions and more.

I would love to show you how you can see a savings of 30% - 50% in your food budget!  Sounds too good to be true?  Get all the facts and see for yourself!

Explore my website, watch the videos and if you still have questions PLEASE - ASK!

Frugally,

Lanelle Devlin

6 Tips to Prepare for Blackouts!

March 27, 2015

1. Follow energy conservation measures to reduce electricity usage, which can help power companies avoid imposing rolling blackouts.

 

2. Fill plastic containers with water and place them in the refrigerator and freezer. Leave about an inch of space inside each one to account for expansion. Chilled or frozen water will help keep food cold during a temporary power outage.

 

3. Be aware that most medication that requires refrigeration can be kept in a closed refrigerator for several hours without a problem. If unsure, check with your physician or pharmacist.

 

4. Keep your car tank at least half full because gas stations rely on electricity to power their pumps.

 

5. Know where the manual release lever of your electric garage door opener is located and how to operate it. Garage doors can be heavy, so know that you may need help in lifting it.

 

6. Keep a key to your house with you if you regularly use the garage as the primary means of entering your home, in case the garage door will not open.
