Oct 2015 Stocking up - food, garden and storage
In October of 2015 when I decided to do a shopping free month, I put together a few things to help out as the month progressed. I was worried about milk and fresh fruits and veggies. I made up this veggie stock, froze some milk, and got some fresh apples. That helped a lot.
Continuing a garden as long as possible was a blessing too. Herbs in a pot were nice to use.
Then I didn't have to worry about the frost getting to them. The strawberries were still producing just a little - enjoying the cooler weather.
Yes - even the candy and snacks... Gotta have a few of those around, right?
Other storage areas were stocked and ready to go.....
This is not your usual situation when you realize you have to live on food storage for awhile, but it helped us get our minds around the fact that we could go without shopping.
