In BabyStep 9: Comfort Foods we list spare condiments as one of the items to store. As we have explored the reasons why people do food storage we found that everyday emergencies were the ones that seem to occur the most. Condiments are definitely something to store to prevent an “emergency”. Have you ever run out of ketchup the day of a barbecue and not had time to run to the store? Don’t you hate it when you run out of soy sauce and have to buy a bottle for FULL price? With food storage this will never happen again!
So here’s what to do. Compile a list of the condiments your family uses and then watch for them to go on sale and pick up a few bottles. Keep a little inventory list of what you have and mark off when you use one up so you can remember to replace it next time it’s on sale. Here is a list of ideas to get you started:
hot sauce/chili sauce
If you have any others to add to the list please feel free to leave them in the comments below and we’ll update the list to reflect them. Have fun with your condiments!
