Last night a Facebook friend of mine posted a comment wondering how long it would be until the shops started running out of bread and milk as a result of the proposed tanker driver strikes.
Today I went into the supermarket at lunchtime to buy some milk for our office at work. There were no 2 pint cartons left, only single pints. That didn’t matter for me because I just wanted a pint to last us until the end of the week in the office. It seems my friend was right and the food hoarding is starting already.
I’m trying to do one big shop a month so that I don’t keep going back and getting tempted in the supermarket. I keep the cupboard stocked up with things like pasta, tinned tomatoes, tuna, lentils and chickpeas. I keep veggy chicken chunks and veggy mince in the freezer. This means that I can usually rustle up something from the storecupboard. I won’t be going out and buying extra food. For one thing, I’ve got nowhere else to put it!
Do you keep a storecupboard? Or do you buy ‘just in time’?
Until next time, Tawney x
