Since we’re trying to avoid public spaces all together, it’s smart to make a plan before you shop. Avoid busy areas by ordering online or opting for curbside pick up. Don’t forget that you can make your own hand sanitizer too! If your grocery store is out of essential items, like toilet paper, ask when they plan for the next delivery.
Preparing freezer meals are another great way to stay ahead of what your family could possibly need. Many people are being forced to self-quarantine, at home, an unable to work at their offices. Alongside with schools being closed, this could really be a game-changer for family dynamics.
It’s not too late to stock up on everything your family needs. Besides, it’s always best to have an emergency supply of survival-based items in your home. If your worried about storage, ask neighbors about coming together to stock up on items. We’re using a neighbor’s refrigerator for extra milk supply for our toddler.
Being prepared and not panicking can make all the difference for your family.
