Moving around the country with the military, I’ve seen bad weather in a lot of different areas.  I’m always interested in how differently people in different parts of the country prepare for what’s considered bad weather there.  For those of you who have to run to the store at the last-minute before a bad snow storm or severe temperatures, here’s a  Last-Minute Snow or Freeze Shopping List to make your trip just a little easier.

Unless you’re exceptionally prepared all the time, you will one day be standing in a long line at the store stocking up on those must have items before a big storm.  It’s happened to even the most prepared and organized among us.  Don’t worry, just print out your copy of the  Last-Minute Snow or Freeze Shopping List and you’ll be ready to run to the store and get everything you need.

  1. Great printable! Thanks for the head start on the list too. I will have to add batteries to my list since we never seem to have enough when we need them.

  2. I make sure we have powdered milk in the pantry. It is not my favorite to drink, but we can use it for many things when we can’t get out of the house! Great list!

  3. Great list idea Susan! We are pretty lucky here in California, and some of these I need to do, like the wiper blades. My friends back East are telling me that it takes a couple hours in the markets just like you said and your list covers what they need.

    1. Thanks, Raquel. It can get crazy when everyone is trying to stock up before a storm. I don’t like to shop in the best of circumstances, so I do everything I can to make any kind of shopping easier (now if I could only afford a personal shopper!)

  4. Toilet paper. Pasta and jars of pasta sauce/canned tomatoes etc. Things you can cook easily.
    And stuff you can eat without electricity. Gas/charcoal for a BBQ! Potatoes to cook in an open fire/log burner. And a bottle of wine or 2!

    1. Ah, toilet paper! Thank you, Emma. I always keep a big stock of tp, so I don’t worry about that, but for other folks, it should definitely be on the list. Love the wine idea – for keeping warm, right?
