Preparing for Times When You Might Not Be Frugal

April 2nd, 2011 at 08:33 pm

Since I have gotten over being sick as a dog for 3 weeks, using up almost all of my pt time at work, and wondering if I was going to die and the dogs would fight over my body, it came to me that I need to start stocking up easy foods and meds for when I'm sick.

Flu and cold meds.
possibly popsicles (best things in the world for unhappy tummies)
canned soups with pop tops
stuff for allergies.
aloe saturated tissues for da node

When I was sick, I ended up taking children benedryl, which i have on hand when people do fireworks and scare the dogs into a frenzy. Actually, I'm starting to like children's benedryl as a result.

I may also box or bag my emergency supplies, so i'm no tempted to eat them at other times.

I also want to have more frozen easy foods in the freezer. When I get that sick, cooking is almost impossible.

When I'm really sick, I don't think about frugality, I think about survival and whether I'm going to make it throw up. So preparing for sickness will be the essence of frugality.

    I'm right there with you on not wanting to be frugal when sick. Part of my major stock up today was getting some easy foods (canned or frozen) for the next time I'm ill, because we wiped out all of it during the last six weeks.

    You poor thing! Glad you're feeling better. Being sick can save you money; you don't feel like going anywhere and I'd say eating canned soup and popsicles is pretty frugal. Smile

    3 weeks is a long time to be sick. Glad your feeling better.

    Do you remember life before aloe-infused tissues? I swear, it is almost a wonder that humanity survived... I totally agree with having a good stock of those puppies on hand to lead to happy nostrils during sickness, as well as a bunch of cran-raspberry juice (which they don't have over here where we live at the moment). It's the one form of insurance that I will get through "The Glucks." (Popsicles are good, too.)
