The weather outside tomorrow is supposed to be frightening. Snow, ice, gloom of night….the whole deal.
You don’t need the weather channel to tell you this. Just go to a grocery store. For the 11 people in Ashburn who weren’t there around noon, well, we missed you. But everyone else was stopping by to pick up “just a few things” in case we’re snowed or iced in for a few days. You go in expecting to spend $25...but wheel out a cart filled with over $100.
Traditionally, we all make fun of people rushing to buy milk, bread and toilet paper, but that isn’t a need for us these days. Milk certainly is, but it’s not the No. 1 item. Bread is something we tend to buy in bulk when it’s on sale and stash extra loaves in our second freezer in the basement, so it’s doubtful that’s ever an emergency purchase. And toilet paper? Well, thanks to warehouse clubs or Amazon forcing you into a subscription to save another 5 percent, we’re usually closer to having 28 rolls on hand instead of one.
But if there’s bad weather, there are things you HAVE to have. These would be my top 5 products I would feel very bad running out of in the middle of a snowstorm:
The rest, honestly, we pretty much have because we tend to buy on sale and freeze some of it. This morning I pulled out ground beef, chicken breasts, hamburger buns, etc. that will all satisfy meals for a few days. I have in the past ordered a couple of pizzas the night before a storm when there was a 50-off deal at Papa Johns and put them in the fridge. You’d be surprised how if you put them on a pizza pan and bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes the next day how well they taste. I’d argue the crust is better with the second baking, and the rest tastes the same. So your family can experience take out pizza during a storm when you can’t get to where they’re selling takeout pizza.
