Y2K Grocery list

-- DuffyO (duffyo@mailcity.com), August 19, 1999


I have everything on the list except the baby food items. I have been living off my preps for about a year now and just replace what I use weekly. It sure is an eyeopener on just what my family consumes and how much. I have been amazed at the amount of leftovers I have so now I am adjusting the amount of food I cook, because leftovers tend to be thrown away no matter how good the intention of saving them. I might not have a way to save leftovers safely after y2k.

For those who don't have babies to feed, an excellent suggestion provided a long time ago was to consider baby food products like prunes or dates, or whatever your preference, as a source of canned goods in sizes suitable for baking bread and muffins. Many such items are not available, for storage, otherwise.

Carol, just a caution here. I read a list of things most likely to disappear from shelves first, and of the 7 foods listed, the top one was baby food. This stuck with me, because my daughter has triplets and I'm very conscious of kids' needs up ahead, and worry for her and them.

I do have some baby food bananas put away for making banana bread but I am not storing baby food for babies. The youngest in our family is two and I am not planning on having anyone stay with me with a small baby in tow.
