So I was chatting with some friends at work and was shocked (and a little horrified) to find out they don’t keep basic food supplies in their house. If I had to estimate I would guess that I could go at least 2-3 months without shopping if I had to. They all thought that was crazy Lol
So my question is if you had to stop shopping today how long do you think you could go without starving?
I stopped shopping when my area went into lock down last year. I Had enough food until December I still had to buy milk and eggs but that's all I was buying.
In terms of food supply, we could go a few months.
In terms of sanity-management, I can go no more than a couple of days....depending on how many FAOs are taunting me from my ibotta gallery.
Lol, I still have canned goods from stock piling from the first shelter in place when COVID hit last year! But that doesn't stop me from adding to it, and since I don't have a deep freezer I keep my eyes open for good meat deals.
Technically we could last a couple of months. However, I hope to never be in a situation where I can’t go at least once a week for perishables, especially fresh produce.
I used to make my big runs once a month, especially after the pandemic hit. I don't stock up like I used to mainly because my grocery stores, convenience stores, and organic markets are so close to me now that I've moved. I walk everywhere now and don't tend to stockpile since it's so much easier for me to access those things. If everything closed down, though, I think I could go a month to a month and a half at the very most. I have several food allergies and it's hard enough to find everything I can eat anyway. I don't always get the opportunity to stock up. That said, I do have a lot of canned chicken breast and rice, I could eat on that for a long time.
@SaverGirl67 It’s possible that your co-workers eat out or order out all meals. You know what I make dinner..... reservations!! Lol .
