We have been stocking up for winter now, so our shopping lists have gotten bigger. That is normal for us. The kids are calling for Chicken soup quite often when they have sick kids, so I usually wind up making a huge pot of soup a week on top of what the wife and I eat. Made Chicken soup twice in the last seven days. Got ten Chickens in stock plus about twenty pounds of leg quarters.

We stock our pantry to save money, our food stock might go down when there are no good deals, then we will bring the stock back up when a sale occurs. We bought two turkeys Sunday, fifty five cents a pound, one for thanksgiving dinner and a smaller one for another occasion. If everything collapses, we can make a batch of chocolate chip cookies a week for half a year.

We don't stock for a disaster, we stock for convenience and for saving money and we have a lot of what we normally use in stock now because of pretty decent sales again...accounting for the rise in prices lately, we are still spending more per item, but I am talking sale price to sale price, we barely ever pay full price for the things we need...so far that is.

Living out in the country in the snowbelt, it is nice to have supplies on hand and our system also lowers impulse buying

Definitely living where you can't pop to the store in 5 minutes makes you be really organized about things like you are.

Ha I stocked up those Make Believe no sugar chocolate chips at Costco and can make chocolate chip cookies for months now too. I recommend them if you haven't tried them. They are good if you are trying to cut out sugars.

I hope everybody feels better soon with your homemade soup. Seems everybody is getting sick right now too.

Producers are a little tied up right now trying to find people to work & keeping ones who do. It's gonna take awhile just filling existing orders before they freak over smaller ones rolling in. Not talking about large companies, more the middle tier manufacturers.

Have to say it's been a huge relief having to pare back! I still stock up on everyday items before winter altho that's more from hating shopping in general and hating it even more in snow & ice. Have also found a cure for impulse shopping. If you work overtime every payday it REALLY curbs that desire to go anywhere but straight home to collapse!!
