PSA for emergency items
I had a comment thread chock full of great ideas the last time I posted about this issue.
Today, I want to continue with a few more ideas.
Since most common tools for the kitchen, bathroom, and for personal hygiene, come from China, we thought of some common, every day items that, in the future, will be very handy to have to replace what breaks, or wears out.
Among them, nail clippers. And while we are at it, extra emery boards, and fingernail polish remover which, in our home, doubles as a solvent to clean up gummy or gluey items.
I did score a stainless steel coffee pot in the camping section of Walmart for less than $20. When the lights are out, or when the electric coffee maker poops out, there will be coffee.
Not to forget, cheese graters, can openers, kitchen scissors all break or corrode over time. Extra cork screws and bottle openers might be a good idea.
Today, we are buying an extra pair of reading glasses, and polarized sun shades.
The goal is to buy necessities while they are at their cheapest price, which is right now. We may have a pricing shock in the near future on all things which we consider essentials for a comfortable life.
