Holidays are a great time to stock up on grocery items and other products for preparedness. Don’t overlook Memorial Day as an opportunity to replenish your pantry with condiments like ketchup, mustard, mayo and salad dressing. They are often half priced. You can also find paper products (like plates, cups, plastic utensils, and paper towel) on sale, which are very convenient when water is scarce, and discounted charcoal to store as an alternative fuel source. Snack foods and batteries that are good for 72 hour kits also go on sale this time of year as the camping season approaches.
