I'm extremely tight on fundz right now, I want to make myself a emergency diy shelter with corage, a tarp and with some trees. Where are some free places that might help assist with getting me these things?
Hmm ok well as far as a tarp those are pretty easy to get look at lumber yards...behind some big box hardware stores homedept lowes etc we used to tarp stuff up behind lowes at least when i worked there.and as far as cordage goes if you have the time and materials you can make your own i do but im native i make 8 ply cordage normally but you can look in the same places i told u there should be some cordage around

Most home improvement stores like Minards, Home Depot or Lowe’s, the types with an outside lumber yard, have stands outside the exit of the lumber yard that have free cordage for customers to tie their stuff down with. It’s usually not a very hefty twine, but if you double it up it’ll probably work for you.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
