Over recent months it has become more and more apparent that there is a massive problem rolling towards us in the financial markets.
Money that is put into savings and pension plans is being scooped up and processed out of the country, to be invested in other, slave-labour nations of corruption and despotism.
That money should be invested in our own economies, but, asking for integrity and honesty from the bankers and brokers is a useless and pointless exercise.
So, it behoves us all to think and act in a prompt and practical way to avoid, as best we can, being a hapless victim in all of this.
1.Grow food. Edible gardens, allotments, containers, patios and window ledges…great fun too!
2.Build a pantry and stock it well. This will cut down on multiple visits to the supermarket.
3.Learn as many practical skills and crafts as you can. Knitting, sewing, carpentry…everything is treasured that is hand made.
4.De-clutter your home. Let the energy flow freely around your living space.
5.Teach yourself to cook and bake. This is a real chance to improve your health and become powered up!
6.Collect together a library of knowledge and interest. The internet may never be as reliable as a solid book of information.
7.Invest in the most comfortable bed you can afford. You do, after all, spend one third of your precious life in bed!
8.Make your home cosy and draught-free. Your home is your haven, your sanctuary, your blessed space…be comfortable and warm in it.
9.Bulk-buy local when available. This will enable you to turn food gluts into storable feasts.
10.Invest in a chest freezer and put it in your new pantry…don’t forget, even a spare room will double as a pantry, especially a north facing one.
