FREE with Swagbucks!

I have been using Swagbucks for a few months now and I have earned enough points to get myself some stuff for free on Amazon!  So in my quest to become more homesteady, self sufficient, and to prepare for possible emergencies I got a 16 quart stainless steal mixing bowl, a 5 quart dutch oven...there is a link in the side bar if you are interested in getting the same one I got... and a luggable loo.  I got the mixing bowl for making homemade bread in.  The bowl is big enough to let the dough rise for several loaves of bread at one time.  What I like about the cast iron dutch oven is that 5 quarts will be big enough for us to put an entire meal in it for our family, we can use it on or in our wood burner, and the lid doubles as a skillet!!  How awesome is that!  The lid is perfect for frying stuff in!  And it is HEAVY!    

The luggable loo is a toilet seat lid that fits on top of a 5 gallon bucket.  I have plenty of those thanks to a friend of mine.  But, it is to address the issue of what to do if we had a long term...as in more than 3 days LOL...power outage!  We have been a day or two without power and water before and let me tell you figuring out how to flush the toilet with 8 people and no water....well lets just say I hope I never have to use it!  The best thing is I was able to redeem Swagbucks for them.  450 Swagbucks can be redeem for a $5 Amazon gift card!  If you spend over $25 the shipping is FREE too!!

That is an awesome sized bowl! I have a set of stainless steel bowls that come from a restaurant supply store in various sizes. They are so handy, especially the huge ones. It is great that you earned that many swagbucks! You have inspired me to work harder on it.
