Given the state of the economy and when it comes to SHTF situations most people forget about the fact that they will need ample clothing for the different seasons in various sizes and that includes warm clothing, shoes, coats, boots, gloves, scarfs and things like that because after a while things do wear out. At this point, I do not discard old clothes or any type of fabric as I am holding onto everything I possibly can. And I neatly store these items away in a closet or in a suitcase somewhere tucked away in the house or bagged up in the shed just in case someone can use them.

So purchasing that extra pair of shoes, boots, socks, etc will be very helpful. Especially when it comes to children who will grow out of their clothing and things. I tell you if I were a young mother today I would definitely try to pursue certain skill sets like sewing and then start to stock up on different types of fabrics and sewing patterns so I can make my children’s clothing if need be as they grow out of their clothes. I’m just saying.

I would also buy for each child an extra pair of shoes and boots a few sizes bigger and put them away just in case. I’m just saying.

And these items don’t have to be on the expensive side and so as a young mother I would surely live in Walmart and Target when it comes to buying for children during this time. And I’d make sure they each have a backpack full of comfort items for them as well such as a few small toys or that snuggly soft blanket.

So as a grandmother I have thought about this so I set aside plenty of cloth diapers and children’s colorful fabric for my grands and perhaps other people’s babies, along with a few games and toys, you know just in case.

As adults, we will want our comfort items too. For me, I have purchased a stack full of various nail products such as nail polish, all sorts of press on nails, polish remover, and cotton balls. I also ordered the reusable press on nail kits like “All Dashing” and “Kiss” along with an extra gel nail polish kit and nail foils just before this pandemic because although I don’t do nail shops but if I did or didn’t I would want to have these things on hand to pamper myself so as I am stuck sitting at home I sure would like to make sure my nails are looking pretty still, hey… why not.

And although I myself am not an alcoholic drinker… never was… because I always prefered to get high on life itself. So yeah, go ahead and get that bottle of wine now if you drink alcoholic beverages or entertain with a close friend because from what I understand for some it helps soothe and calm you when on the outside it looks as if the world is falling to pieces.

So whatever your creature comfort items are I’d say it’s time to try to stock up on some of the things like this now while you still have time and access to them at the stores because one thing this pandemic is teaching a lot of people is that these types of situations will arise when you least expect it so it pays to be as ready as possible. So good luck people.

I like to call my self a happy soul, a daydreamer and have a heart of a gypsy. Love to use my imagination. And trying out new things. Life can be so wonderful and enjoyable when I am being positive and releasing.
