Am I the only one who does this???


I do it all summer - I get things ready and stockpile for winter! I go to yard sales and look for blankets, sweaters, puzzles, books, and other stuff to get us through the winter. I also stockpile food items that I use a lot of in the winter. Like all of my baking needs, etc.

Am I the only one who does this?? I just hate getting out in the winter and having to worry about stuff like that. I try to make it to where I have to get out as little as possible. Really helped a lot last winter, because we had a bad winter. The winter before last was bad also and we were without a vehicle for most of January and February. I bought my mini van in that March. So to be stocked up on items made it a lot easier. Stockpile paper products while they are on sale and other items like that. I always make sure that we have plenty of bath items, medicines, coffee, flour, beans, soup making items, and more. We also keep a few gallons of kerosene on hand for our kerosene heater in case our power goes out. That can be a life saver!!

I just use common sense and think about anything that I use daily and use more of in winter and then stock up on it.

I do the SAME thing! Right now I'm on the hunt for books to stock up for myself, jeans for the whole families, and sweats. I'm slowly stocking up on baking supplies and food supplies in general. I am SO glad to be doing it.

I am so glad that I am not the only one who does this. You can get some great deals on winter type stuff at yard sales in the summer! I also stock up on fabric and sewing stuff so I can sew and craft while it is too cold to get out. I buy toys also and hide them back and when my toddler gets bored I will bring out some "new" toy and he plays for hours.
