Stock Up on Emergency Picnic Supplies • May Prep Challenge #4

Our fourth prep challenge in May is to stock up on emergency picnic supplies such as paper plates, cups, bowls, plastic utensils and more. These supplies are useful in an emergency when the water or power may be shut off and you can’t wash your dishes. And for the time that your dishwasher is broken. If you plan to have any family gatherings this summer, you can do two things at once.

Stock Up on Emergency Picnic Supplies

Picnic supplies go on sale during the summer months which is awesome for us! So, keep watching for sales at grocery stores, Costco, Sam’s Club, and pharmacies for special deals.

Paper picnic supplies can be burned too, so you don’t fill up your trash can. Another tip is to shop after Independence Day when you’ll find some heavily discounted patriotic picnic supplies.

Here are a few items to add to your shopping list:

The key is to not let these items disappear completely from your shelves before you need to buy some more.  I hope you can stock up on some emergency picnic supplies, so you’ll be ready for the unexpected.

Best wishes and stay healthy!
