Organising The Prepper Pantry Whilst Not Well

I have to say, last night organising the prepper pantry was probably one of the furthest things from my mind.  However, when I tried to get to sleep, I just kept getting stuffed up and struggling to breathe.

My first line of defence was to head downstairs and take the flu remedy night time capsules.  I did that and sat downstairs for about an hour to give them time to work.  By now it was about midnight so I headed back to bed in the hopes that I could doze off.

That was forlorn hope as again I struggled to breathe and was tossing and turning so much that Raven the cat decided to move somewhere else. 

Next on my list was to build myself a wall of pillows so I could try to sleep sitting relatively upright.  This seemed like a great idea until the pain in my hips and back started.  I gradually moved myself to lying down and the stuffiness came right back.

The easiest way to get some relief was to stand up, walk about and blow my nose to try and get rid of some of the gunk.

The second time I did this, I realised that it was pointless pacing backwards and forwards in my room.  Why not pace straight to the next room and put some items on the shelves in my pantry?

Three or four failed attempts at sleeping later and you can see from the picture the improvement.  The preps which had been unceremoniously dumped on the bed are now on the shelving.  It makes a big difference to the feel of the room and I am much more positive about my pantry now.

So there you have it, how I organised my prepper pantry when I was ill.

    I found your Youtube channel a few weeks back and have been enjoying it very much. I do not comment on Youtube so I am very pleased to have found your blog.
    Born in Edinburgh but raised in Toronto, I find that your form of “prepping” and the topics you speak about are much more relatable for a single female of a “certain age”, living in a small 1 bdrm apt. in the middle of a city of 3 million – without even a balcony! I’ve always kept a decent pantry as I don’t drive (city girl) and we have terrible Winters when getting out and about for groceries can be difficult. Even before Covid hit I had added more supplies (I’ve paid attention to the news out of China ever since Toronto was hit hard with SARS).
    Anyway, love your down to earth approach and I hope you get better soon – please take care of yourself.

      Hi Margie, Great to have you here. I know what you mean about winters, many is the time I have been driving to the shops when the snow suddenly seemed to be worse than forecast and bought enough for my daughter and I to be stuck for a few days. I am definitely better today than yesterday so fingers crossed, thanks Karen
