Do-it-Yourself Coronavirus Food for Shelter-in-Place … Saving Money while doing it.

Ask yourself these questions while you’ve got some time to sit and contemplate the lockdown. The things you wish you’d done differently are going to be very important things to address for the future.

What do you wish you had done differently?

It’s easy to play quarterback after the game is over, but it isn’t about beating yourself up. It is about learning from your experience.

  • Is there anything you wish you had done differently?
  • What food did you run out of the fastest?
  • Were there non-food supplies you did not think to buy?
  • Was there anything that broke, and you did not have the necessary tools or supplies to repair it?
  • About what item did you think, “Dang, I wish I had XXXXXX?”
  • Were there people who hunkered down with you who made things difficult or unpleasant? How can you make it better with those folks in the future? And will you even want them to come over next time?
  • Are there things you could have prepared to keep your kids or other family members more content?
  • Ask yourself these questions while you have got some time to sit and contemplate the lockdown. The things you wish you had done differently are going to be critical things to address for the future.

What are the things you were satisfied?

We all probably had more successes than failures in this lockdown. What are a few examples of some things that may have worked well?

  • You had enough in your emergency fund to cover any shortfalls.
  • You were able to make tasty, nutritious, and filling meals from your supplies.
  • You didn’t need to leave the house for X amount of time for groceries.
  • You and your family bonded and enjoyed spending this time together.
  • You discovered your group worked well together.
  • You did something productive with your time at home.
