These past couple of weeks have been a major eye-opener for many families. The average American keeps 3 days or less of food inside their home at any given time. This is fine for the every day but when disaster strikes should it be the loss of a job, a hurricane, or something as inconceivable as a pandemic the realization is that a good stockpile can help calm a stressful situation.
Building a stockpile even when you do not have the budget is worth it for the peace of mind you have when things do go bad. When this all blows over start looking at growing a stockpile for your home. These are the reasons why you need a stockpile.
Security should you experience economic hardships
The economy is tanking and jobs will be limited. One great way to make surviving after a job loss easier is to have a stockpile. Likewise, if you are just temporarily out of work due to a disaster or illness you will have food, cleaning supplies, and hygiene products to tide you over.
A natural disaster strikes.
Should you be hit by a hurricane or tornado you don’t need to add worrying about having the things you need to survive on top of everything else. A stockpile of the things you need for a minimum of 72 hours should be part of your emergency kit. This will also allow you to skip the usual panic at Walmart right before severe weather is expected to hit.
Avoid running to the store in the middle of the night
Having a stockpile will prevent you from having to run out of the house in the middle of the night for an item you use every single day. This will make your life easier and less stressful.
Once you have built your stockpile you only have to shop the sales. This will help you save a lot of money overall when you are no longer paying full price for anything again.
Coronavirus Day 8: We went hunting down food. It is scary out there. I felt like we were in some post-apocalyptic thriller as I walked through the isles filled with bare and nearly bare shelves. We managed to find butter, milk, and the roast I was hoping for. I even found Nido for our stock for when the milk runs out. 2-year-olds find that to be the end of the world. I even found some gelled cranberry sauce to hide away for when I need a fun treat for me. Shhhhh
