I got to thinking about some of the skills I have shared on this blog, many of which come from the "do it yourself" wisdom of previous generations. When I came to the section of the article that had some suggestions about items one might want to have on hands, I think I would do it a bit differently, and I hope my readers would have the same skills. Here is the list of some suggestions:
The deodorant and toothpaste are also things that I have shared recipes for and could easily be made if one already had those ingredients on hand (as we do because we make a myriad of products with the same self care ingredients).
The sanitary napkins are something one could easily make as well and would not take up nearly as much space since they would be washable (tutorial here) if you are curious.
So all in all, though I don't disagree with some of the suggestions I would argue that if you know some of our grandparent's skills of making your own of something, you may do better than to try to stockpile too much.
