With the advent of the internet and social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, the world has become a smaller and more connected place. There has even been a substantial decrease in the amount of written correspondence being sent through post offices all over the globe nowadays, due to the proliferation of emailing, texting and online instant messaging. But for those living thousands of miles apart from members of their family, or anyone with friends living in different countries, it's typically a little different. A small handwritten letter or a lovingly assembled care package will instantly make the heart sing and your mood surge with inner contentment while emitting a happy exterior glow.
A true prepping lifestyle can easily pay for itself. The prepper who is storing wheat and other basic staples for long term food storage learns how to prepare meals from scratch. These meals are healthier, because you aren't adding all sorts of chemicals and preservatives, but they are also much cheaper. The money you spend on food is then available for other prepping purchases.
Because of this unavoidable need for international product distribution, many companies specialize in storing millions of products (know as "warehousing"), as well as expertly handling numerous forms of ocean transportation, harbor freight shipping, air cargo, ground delivery shipments and expedited emergency shipping services. Currently, most international delivery businesses have made concerted efforts to reduce their overall cost processes, so that they can pass these savings on to you.
One plastic 50 gallon barrel. I located three on Craigslist and paid $24 for all three, so $8. Four three inch rigid-caster wheels. Harbor Freight has them for $3 each, so $12 for these. Treated wood, although I used 2X6's, treated deck wood would work just as well,$20. Paint for the barrel, $4.25. Paint for the platform,$7.50. Lag bolts and washers to mount the rigid casters $4.80. Two 2" PVC vent pipes cut from a ten foot length of pipe, $5. Four NIBCO 1 1/2 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Spigot x Slip Joints,$8. Window hardware: 8"continuous hinge and three cabinet latches, $9. The total is $78.55. Of course any of these materials you happen to have on hand will decrease your cost:
So what do you need to get started? If you wanted to be a traditional air-brush artist you would have to choose between a confusing array of expensive airbrushes. Luckily to try improvisational airbrush painting, you only need to purchase one simple, cheap "quick change airbrush" that you can get at Harbor Freight for $10. This brush is special because it allows you to change your colors really quickly and apply thick wet layers of paint.
Long gone are the days when buying something from a different state - let alone a different country - would be an exotic or adventurous concept. It has now become an everyday experience to order something from an online store, wait a few days and then, hey presto, it's arrived as if by magic. You could be buying the latest mass-produced high-tech from Best Buy, a vintage, secondhand product from a seller on either eBay or eCRATER, or a uniquely upcycled handmade item from a creative craft maker located on the other side of the world via Etsy.
