Re: Daily Check In March 30th

Colonialgirl, you can always just wear a hat until this is over. Call it a COVID Cover! :-D

Seriously, though, bright silver sounds quite attractive if you want to grow it out.

Re: Habits you plan to change

The main one is that I am going to maintain a better stockpile of pantry and freezer goods, paper products and toiletries. I had let things run down because our income dropped when I left my job, and got caught slightly flat-footed. I think we will be okay, but I would like to be more confident goin...

Re: Are You Rationing Anything?

I am keeping a close eye on everything. I have not rationed anything, but have made sure nothing has been wasted. Like Rinty, our food waste has basically been peelings and egg shells.

Re: Daily Check In March 30th

Rinty, your mention of your DH in his long johns was so funny! I often say we'll do or get so-and-so when this is over, but tend to not remember what it was, which means we can get by without it. I would love to visit my friends and our sister-in-law, who all live in Georgia. I would really love to ...
