As we continue assessing our prepping needs, first aid and medical supplies remain a gaping hole. I had been struggling a bit with the thought of spending money for items that (thankfully!) we don't use on a regular basis and that usually end up expired in the trash can ... until I began reading about pandemics and sheltering at home. After a quick (and extremely frugal) trip to Walgreen's this week ...

... I began to feel more confident about our on-hand supplies. I also came to realize that purchasing medicines is akin to purchasing an insurance policy. Although we hope that we will not need to use these drugs ... we would be extremely relieved to have them available if necessary.


  1. I agree, it's all about insurance. We have a wide variety of medicines at home but not a huge supply of anything. I'd best follow your example.

  2. and don't forget, it's still good if expired in most cases.


Thanks so much for visiting! I reply to comments here, so be sure to check back.
