Thankful Thursday: Stocking Up

Meows from Mudpie!

For most of her life Mommy has had a really bad habit of going to the store and picking up just one of anything she needs, always assuming it would still be there the next time she needed it again. That all started to change thanks to my squeezie addiction. For much of last year it was so hard to find that whenever she saw it at the store she would pick up several packages, even when I was well stocked.

Now thanks to the state our crazy world is in with empty store shelves and rising prices, she's turned over a new leaf! She goes to the store and buys multiples of everything she needs. If it's on sale she buys even more, and if the price has gone up and it's not a matter of life and death, she leaves it on the shelf.

Most importantly, instead of buying individual packages of squeezies (which have gone up in price like everything else), she's buying them by the CASE for me while they're still in stock at a reasonable price!!! 

This picture was taken a couple weeks ago as I was checking out my loot. I still had 2 cases left over from Christmas, and last week she ordered 3 more cases while the price remained the same. She's contemplating buying a few more...

I just might be stocked up for the next apocalyptic event that hits us, and judging by the way things are going, that's probably right around the corner!


We would like to send lots of purrs, prayers, and good wishes out to Brian's Home blog, host of the Thankful Thursday blog hop. On Monday they lost their beautiful Dolly unexpectedly to a blood clot, and the next day dad Terry needed to have emergency appendectomy surgery.

Our mom always has back up things of products we all need and use which has turned out to be a great habit these days. Even toilet paper is something to wonder about but thankfully when that shortage hit, we had a spare 20 pack in the closet because that is what Mom always has.

I've noticed hoarding making a return and I don't blame folks. If you use stuff you need to get it while you can. It's a shame.

Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday, Mudpie. My best to your mom. ♥

Yes, sadly we need to stock up on what we need since it might not be there next time. Thanks for the kind words on the passing of our sweet Dolly, we were luck to have such a happy soul as a part of our family, we sure miss her joyful spirit. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
