If things get really bad I have it covered...

Today I looked at my big food storage cabinet and thought, "Melissa, you have to clean that mess up!" Things were piled hodge-podge. I had five bags of opened powdered sugar! Once I took everything out, wiped the shelves and started organizing to put it all back in, I realized that in case of severe crisis the Norris household is well-prepared in a few areas. We have ten boxes of tea bags, 12 boxes of those little packets of hot chocolate mix and six brand new gallons of vinegar. I thought to myself, "We are sooooo ready for a depression, economic collapse, unemployment, sickness, just about anything." We have tea, chocolate and the ultimate cure-all...vinegar! ;) :angel:

Hey Melissa, I have the kroger hot chocolate stacked up on my shelves too! But my big "whoops" was pudding mixes though. We have an Amish bulk store a couple of miles away and every now and then they have pretty good sales. I bought a lot of pudding mixes at one of their sales. A week or so later, I was there with my daughter and they still had the pudding mixes on sale, so I bought more of them, forgetting exactly how many I'd bought last time. (it was a lot!) When I got home, I realized that if things ever got bad, we'd eat pudding, pudding, and more pudding. Boy, do we have pudding mix stocked up! We've used a few of them since then, but I think I still have 15-1lb bags in the store room. Each 1lb package makes about 18 servings.
