The Foundation Class of Principles and Priorities for Self-Reliant Living.
The Foundation — Principles and Priorities for Self-Reliant Living
Product No. 1001
True preparedness, and the ability to face the future with hope and confidence, comes from living by principles and their underlying truths. Most people focus on things to buy, but the focus should first be on the education and training you absolutely must have. You will indeed need to acquire certain things, but just having a bunch of ‘stuff’ will not ensure your safety and survival, however, correct knowledge will!
You must understand your true needs and priorities before you begin to acquire the things you’ll need. How else can you know for sure that you have the right things at the right time.
This ‘FOUNDATION’ class provides a solid footing upon which to build your personal and family readiness to face the future no matter what. Without this understanding and the commitment to live it, as the stress in all areas around you increases, everything, including yourself, may crumble.
Correctly understanding these principles allows an individual to solve problems that may seem impossible to the uninformed. This class is not a list of things to buy. In fact, it’s not out to sell you anything except the idea that, “What you know – what’s inside of you – is far more important than what you own”.
Since 1984 Jim Phillips’ profession has been teaching principle based classes all across the country. This video was recorded at a live class in 1999 (with an update added in 2007) and is considered the foundation that everything else builds upon.
Why the Bigger Discount?
If this class is so important, why discount it so much? First, since this material is so vital and forms the foundation for ones provident living, we don’t want cost to be a big barrier – hence the low price.
Next, we want people to have these concepts so they can get their priorities straight on how to spend time and money on getting prepared. Most people really don’t have a plan. They just buy a bunch of stuff, which they are told they must have (all be it by the same people that just happen to sell that very thing).
And lastly, this low price is not intended to just be a loss leader to get you in the door. However, if you like what we teach and how we teach it, then you might come back for more instruction in the dozens of other classes we have, many of which are provided at no cost online.
Our MISSION is to reach and teach as many people as possible the correct principles of Provident Living (aka, self-reliant living, or preparedness). We don’t believe we are prepared until our neighbors are prepared. We hope you will adopt that same philosophy and reach out others. We’ll do our best to help in this process.

ITL Foam™ ½” Sheets
For making Inner Thermal Liners™ (ITLs™) and related ½” components. One sheet makes one set (shirt, pants) for the average medium-sized adult. Depending on the size of the adult, there may be foam leftover for mittens, hats, and bootie. Please note that ½” ITLs™, or TJs™ are not PALS™ clothing and will not take the place of the PALS™ clothing in the extremes. Learn all about the use and performance of ITLS™ and TJs™ in the Winter Without Worries class series.
ITL Foam™ 1” Sheets - copy
CAUTION, please read the entire description before ordering. 1” foam is used for several items in the PALS™ system that you learn about in the Winter Without Worries class. The 1” foam that we currently have is too firm to use for the 1” PALS™ clothing. We are searching for a softer foam to use for the clothing that has all the other desired characteristics. This particular medium-firm 1” foam works best for the following items: 1) The thermal-liner for the PALS™ Mukluk, 2) The MHP™ (Moisture Handling Pad™) which is a critical part of the PALS™ Sleeping System. 4) It also makes a terrific stand-alone three-season sleeping bag, particularly in wet conditions.
