4 Things You Don’t Want to Run Out of During a Snowstorm, Besides Bread and Milk

Every time there’s a big storm, the shelves empty out of bread and the cooler gets raided for milk. If you ask me, there are more important things you don’t want to run out of during the storm, like…

Toilet Paper

Just seeing that picture of an empty roll gives me chills. Imagine being stuck in the house and looking over to see this with not a single roll to be found. Nightmare. The first thing I make sure I have is a jumbo size, 2-ply pack of toilet paper.


The last thing you want to do if you do have to go out in the storm is to hop in the car and see this warning. I always make sure I have a full tank before a storm not only so I can get out if I have to but also because in the winter you don’t want it near empty because condensation can form and freeze. If that happens you aren’t going anywhere fast.



Batteries come in handy for flashlights, but let’s be honest. Does anyone use a real flashlight anymore when you can just turn on the flash on your phone? What I really want to make sure I have batteries for is when the remote control batteries die or even worse, the batteries in your wireless XBOX controller. When you get that warning on the screen you’re going to want to have a drawer full of these ready to go to keep you entertained during the storm.

M&M’s Peanut Butter Eggs


Okay. Not a necessity, but right now I don’t want to be out of the M&M’s Peanut Butter Eggs. Have you tried these things? Totally addicting. Start eating them and before you know it, the bag will be empty. If the storm is in March when the Easter candy is on the shelves, buy all the bags!


What do you stock up on before a storm, besides the bread and milk. Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook.
