-(2) for $1 – iodized salt (can’t get enough of this)
-spices in individual sealed jars
-ramen noodles (10 for $1) – not necessarily very nutricious, but a full stomach is a good thing…watch the salt in it if you have heart/blood pressure issues

Even on a tight budget you CAN do SOMETHING, slowly but surely! Count that jar of change and see what it alone could buy to get you started. Save the bigger stuff for now newbies…it is important to just start
