My husband was without work for about three months this year despite many resumes sent out and contacts made. I know he is not alone in that. Thankfully about two weeks ago he found a nice full time job here in our tiny little town that pays the bills and buys food without requiring a big commute. I took on a babysitting job and it's that money I am using for replenishing our supply. I have added in household supplies I've seen on sale like an extra pack of soap and an extra bottle of shampoo. I will be buying extra quilts etc to try and keep our heat bill down. I also bought a nice dutch oven in case of lack of power so I can still cook food plus I've always wanted one to take camping. So while I am doing this all more quickly than normal it's not stuff I don't normally do, I just like to be prepared for possible emergencies like power outage, higher food prices and job loss.
