2021 Preparedness - Dual Focus: Week 33
Food - Week 33: Ketchup, Mayo, & Vinegar
Ketchup and mayo should be on sale this week due to summer celebrations. If you dated the bottles in your fridge when we began you will know how much you need for a three month supply. If you did not do that, shame on you. :) Estimate how much you use if you didn't mark bottles.
Store at least 2 bottles of each, ketchup and mayo, and one bottle of your favorite vinegar. Also add one gallon of white vinegar. White vinegar has many, many uses.
General Store - Week 33: Scotch Tape and Wrapping Paper
Hit up the dollar store for inexpensive but cute gift bags and wrapping paper. This is another week when you may wonder why that stuff? These are not emergency supplies but they are great to have on hand. Too often we run out of scotch tape and wrapping paper when we need it now. That means another trip to town and more expense on gas that is much too
expensive. Both of these are also great for craft projects during an illness or storm warning when you are confined to your home. Hit up the dollar store for inexpensive but cute gift bags and wrapping paper. Remember we are preparing to be self-reliant and not just for a mega disaster.
