Can't tell you because you DID NOT list the prices of the items listed.

Do that and then MAYBE I will answer the question.

As long as you are clean, you don't offend others and the likely hood of them helping you is greater.

Soap will wash me, my clothes, my house, and my dishes.

It will also get me a job if I have a bucket: I can wash windows.

I can write an emergency message with soap if I needed to.

I can carve the soap and sell it, make a profit, buy another soap and now something else on the list.

Hey all ya'll!
I had forgotten making this.
Wonderful to see y'all responding.
Made my day!

To answer some Q's asked:
From JuicyLu:"You can get all those items for only $1 each?"
A. Yes!
@ the Dollar Discount stores here, all items are $1.00.
They are sometimes smaller sizes, generic or imported brands.

From The Paisan "Can't tell you because you DID NOT list the prices of the items listed.
Do that and then MAYBE I will answer the question."
----A. All items are $1.
( or .99 cents if you want to picky about sales tax, LOL)
No obligation to answer the question if you wish not to.

-
A few of y'all know my history...
I was thinking of all the RW changes gone through these past three years since finding "Topix".
And remembering times darker in the past.

So it was Dec. 28th a couple months ago....
The world hadn't ended as planed on my B-day.
LOL
(j/k)

Was sitting here with a headache, 1.00 $ and in need of all the items on the list;
With three days till some money was available.

That prompted the poll.
When I got no answers right away,
I ended up borrowing a cup of milk and some salt; making cookies and trading them through our apt. complex in exchange for almost everything else on the list.
Still had my $ the next day, and used it to buy gasoline for a ride.

Thank you all for your answers, and taking time out to answer the poll.
I can see you put a lot of thought into your reply's and am grateful for that too.

Do you want to do it again?
Make your own list and post it.
If ya want we can call it the survival thread.(?)
Do y'all all like that idea?

A dollar's worth of gas wouldn't get me to the end of my driveway. You must live in Utopia or something.

I choose battery. If I am in a situation when I desperately need a battery I'm not going to waste it!

About the only "food" you can buy for a buck anymore is mac-n-cheese made in China or ramen noodles made in Thailand. Think I'll just starve first. Thanks a lot, Democrats, for stagflation.
