Not going to lie, even in 2021 with all the Covid scare mostly behind us shopping is still complicated. With the talk of new Covid passports to get into places, it is actually looking a bit like fascism. I hope this is not the real case in the future, but either way, it is still important to get your favorite snacks during this time to stay happy. It is all possibly about to kick off again, so if you have a favorite snack that you want to make sure you have for another year, you may want to hop in the car follow your local regulations drive to your favorite local grocery store and pick up some sweet lovely candy boxes of joy.
Things didn’t turn out like we thought from 2020, and in some ways they are a we bit worse. Don’t worry, the government ended up still being a thing, but the civil unrest that we saw all throughout last year is most likely going to pick up even worse when our economy starts to tank again. There is still hope though and you should not give up on getting outside and enjoying life while you can. That is why for the last few months I have been preparing to live off of what I have for a good long time. There are some items that simply disappeared from shelves for months due to the previous lockdowns and a trucker strike that happened in some states. It made me think about getting all my favorite treats and keeping some stocked up for the long haul
Just to be safe we ended up keeping a month or so of food stocked up in case we did have another real shortage. I know that having a year’s worth of my favorite candy boxes is not a major priority, but if it helps keep the peace in your family during hard times then it now becomes essential. It could be as simple as having Snickers in the house for a year. That could be the difference between despair and happily surviving. I know it sounds silly but we all need to do what we must in order to live a good life. There is no reason to be worried or paranoid, but if you are able to store up extra food items in order to be safe and happy. I think that just being confident in food safety and having a nice snack can help keep things calm in my family.
The truth is you never know what is really going to happen and my hope is that my extra food is only for natural disasters. That is why I think it sounds silly to stock up, but lies can cause huge shortages and have already destroyed billions of dollars of food and livestock this year due to the dissemination of false information by our government and news outlets. So even if we are not in much of an emergency we could be thrown into an economic stop, where just in time delivery no longer happens and it is simply better to have more prepared than not. But to each their own and I hope you have found my snack plan fun and helpful. If not, that is ok, because we are free to live as we want for now.
