This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I made a Bacon Grease Candle based on the instructions found in Willow Haven Outdoor.   After all, bacon is my favorite breakfast food.  I’ve made other lamps before, and I wanted to see how if this one would work. You will need Bacon grease   (If you don’t have bacon grease, lard, tallow or Crisco should work just as well.) String (I used a tampon string, but you can use other types such as cotton twine […]

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com As I write this I just heard Sam’s Club in my neighborhood is closing its doors. Several other locations are closing as well.
