If it is cold outside, and freezing...you have a natural freezer... so you can have your eggs,milk and other items that need refrigerated...place in a
cooler with lid open, outside on deck or patio to keep cold and frozen...if you need to bring in and out of the cold, so some things will not
freeze..than do it.
It is when its hot that it becomes a problem with no power in the south.
Up north I put things out like this all the time if we lose power in the winter...if it gets too warm, I simply cook a lot of it up and use it first,
yes it might not be the greatest eating eggs all the time, but you can also hard boil them to have them last longer ...milk can be used to cook with
to help use it up...my point being...you might not have a normal meal for yourself or your family while the power is out, but you would be fed...and
you would be using the food and not wasting it...if you use your head...then once you use up all the perishable food, you get into the other food you
have and continue on.
When it comes to wasting food...you need to use your head for something other than a hat rack...and if your not smart enough to do that, it might be
good to do some research and gain some knowledge, after all that is going to be your best tool that you have. You can have everything you want or
think you need, but without knowing how to do things or prioritizing them your going to fail..and we all do!! So get out and actually doing them,
because watching a video is not the same as doing it with trial and error, get out and go gain some skills and sharpen the ones you already have.
this is just my .02 cents for what its worth
