Making a List and Checking it Twice
No, I am not making a Christmas gift list. What I am working on is my list of things I need to stock up on for the Summer.
~Sugar, I need lots of this for making jams, syrups and canned fruit.
~Vinegar 5% acidity for making pickles.
~A coffee grinder, our's is dying a painful and slow death...found one at Walmart today and I must say, the hubby looked very excited when he saw it. ;)
~Laundry detergent...I made a huge batch of this on Sunday afternoon so we should be set for another 3-4 months!
~Coffee, we are down to one can and a few packages of beans.
~A folding table that I can set up my sewing machine on and that we can also take with us when we go camping.
~Another pair of lightweight capri pants. I have heavier denim ones but unfortunately have put on weight since last year and my lighter weight ones no long fit.
~Trash bags. We ran out of the wood pellet bags that we recycle during the heating season.
~Latex free band aids. I'm allergic to latex and to many of the adhesives on first aid products. I'm a klutz and seem to hurt myself when I work on home improvement projects so these are a must.
~Club soda or Seltzer water...picked up 6 2 liter bottles at .69 today at Safeway.
~Facial tissues. My allergies are horrible this year.
~Sudafed is another need for my allergies.
~Benadryl, did I mention I am allergic to bees?
~Canning jars in various sizes. I plan on doing a lot of canning this year.
~A full tank of propane for the BBQ grill.
I'm curious, does anyone else make a summer stock up list?
