Rinsing your face with cool water after washing it in the morning is more rewarding when you know that the day before, you finished fully stocking up on all the things you need for your lifestyle to be autonomous (at least for the next few months). Imagine having enough of those favorite granola clusters that you like to munch on along with that favorite sweetened lime juice that you just can not get enough of.
A rule of thumb to keep in mind is to pretend that one or two of your neighbors will inevitably come over your house during a football game or two, (and then you should ask yourself if that should happen) would you have enough nacho chips and mild salsa for everyone? Another minor detail, although one that you should keep in the back of your mind is, if one or two friends stay over for dinner, will you have enough throw blankets to keep everyone warm during the after-dinner T.V. movie?
There are a lot of things to remember when it comes to stocking up so that you will probably need endless lists for them. Things like adequate amounts of gasoline for the power lawn mower or extra printing paper for the computer printer. As far as food goes, it’s best to know how many pumpkin pies you’re going to need during Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. Of course you can make the turkey, pumpkin pies and ham the “extras” that you will buy dynamically according to appropriate calendar dates. It’s always best to be prepared and in that way, I think that there’s a little bit of a boy scout inside all of us!
