Coronavirus Food Prep: How to Grocery Shop without hoarding— an easy grocery list
Updated: Apr 27
With changing regulations around coronavirus, it's difficult to ascertain how to prepare without being excessive. Fears of potential quarantine have led to a depletion of supplies at grocery stores, but it's possible to be prepared without having to resort to excess, panic, or breaking the budget.
Below I've outlined a simple list of grocery suggestions that can help you be prepared with just 13 items. Whether you are on a tight budget, have space limitations at home, or simply want to be a conscientious consumer, you'll be able to rest easy and be prepared.
Note: You may already have many of these basic supplies already at home. Be sure to check your pantry, and realistically mentally calculate how many portions are needed for your family size to shop accordingly. For instance, 1/2 cup of rice is sufficient for one very full meal for one adult.
Watch the video below for more detailed explanations on the reasoning behind this grocery list.
