So, you’ve been put on quarantine.
Well, let’s hope not, but if you were… Watching the news and reading posts on Facebook about the coronavirus, it seems that toilet paper is the big item on everyone’s hoarder list, right after water and canned food, and it got me to thinking, is that really all we need?
When there is a crisis, whether it be a pandemic, an earthquake, flood, or even war, (Heaven forbid) the news tells you to have enough water, food, and medications to last you at least 2 weeks.
I racked my brain and even asked my sons, “What would you need on a daily basis if you were quarantined?” So we’ve come up with a list of things that you normally don’t think about or you take for granted on a daily basis.
- Bath soap
- Clothes soap
- Dish soap (Or at least enough paper plates, paper cups, plastic silverware, etc. to last 2 weeks for everyone in your family. Just a thought; It’s cheaper to wash the dishes.)
- Pain and fever reducer
- Anti-bacterial ointment
- Dental floss (My youngest son said that he would go crazy if he couldn’t floss every day. But floss is good for other things too. Just google it.)
- Pet food! Your fur babies need to eat too!
So ask your family and yourself what would you need on a daily basis if you were quarantined and share in the comments.
I pray everyone stays safe and healthy and till next time, HUGS from me to you.
I just finished reading Stevie’s blog post about her essentials if she were to be put on quarantine and you can read it here, https://steviet3.wordpress.com/2020/03/14/quarantine-essentials/comment-page-1/#comment-23068
And I am going to the grocery store tomorrow and will update on my findings. Stay tuned and till then, hugs for a great weekend.
