Recommended Posts

This is a list of extras to supplement the $20 per week storage plan that I created. For an additional $5, you can add a lot of things you might need in a quarantine situation.

 

Everything on this list is available at a dollar store. In some cases, you may find on or two items that are actually 2/$1. If that's the case you may want to double your items.

 

These lists are merely suggestions but, if you're clueless, they will certainly jumpstart your thought processes. Remember, if there is something on the list that you don't buy or don't need, don't buy it! Nothing here is set in stone...

 

Add $5.00 to the $20.00 plan and shop at your local dollar store;

 

Week 1; 5 bottles of vitamin C

Week 2; 5 bottles cough syrup- expectorant not cough suppressor

Week 3; 5 bags hard candies

Week 4; 5 containers of disinfecting wipes

Week 5; 5 boxes daytime cold medicine

Week 6; 5 packs kid toys, or books - or adult equivalent of fun stuff

Week 7; 5 packs ‘AA’ batteries

Week 8; 5 packs baby wipes

Week 9; 5 packs incense or scented candles

Week 10; 5 bottles hand soap

Week 11; 5 toothbrushes

Week 12; 5 books for fun reading

Week 13; 5 bottles pain reliever

Week 14; 5 tubes toothpaste

Week 15; 5 bags cookies or candies

Week 16; 5 packs napkins

Week 17; 5 bottles multi- vitamins

Again, these lists are to add to your preps or give you ideas of things you may have overlooked.

 

Some things I didn't list because I had to make choices according to budget, and thought it a bit simplistic to add in the obvious. These lists are not meant to be all encompassing to anyone who is starting out with nothing. This is pre-supposing there are already basics and regular shopping items in the home.

 

There is absolutely no way to stock up on every item needed for a household on $25.00 per week. I can barely buy bread, milk, juice, eggs and butter with that! Now before you think I'm crazy, you need to understand that my family consists of 5 people, including a 14 yo boy who's 6' 4" tall wears a size 14 shoe and only weighs 145 lbs! To look at him you wouldn't guess that he eats as much as the rest of us combined!

 

We go through;

4-5 gallons of milk @ $1.99= $9.95

2 lbs butter @ $2.49 = $4.98

3-4 loaves of bread @ $1.25 = $5.00

1 1/2 doz eggs @ $1.39 = $2.10

1 - 1 1/2 gallons of juice @ $2.00 = $3.00

For a total cost of $25.03... and those are sale prices!

 

My point is, if you use commercially canned foods, you know you need a manual can opener or three, if you home can you need jars, rings and lids... If you have oil lamps, you need fuel and fire, if you use candles you need a way to light them...if you eat you need plates, tp, etc., so if there's something you feel should have been on these lists, adjust it to suit your personal needs, but don't tell me I need to change them because I won't.

 

These are my lists and I spent hours compiling them out of love and concern for my online family, not because I needed to have my thought processes challenged.

 

My real time family will fare well because I make sure of it. I'm just trying to help you do the same.

 

Of course, your mileage may vary...
