Go ahead and do it now. When it arrives, put it in a bin and in a closet. Avoid the last minute race to the store next time, because you have everything you need already. Next time you will be able to chuckle like me.
First you can actually shop for food and other items at Walmart. In a lot of areas, you are able to shop online and arrange to pick it up outside the store and they will put your order in your car. It's pretty nifty.
I have done some shopping for you. These are some of the items I have in my personal emergency kit. The first item, a lantern is fantastic! It produces a lot of light & you can actually heat a cup of water, soup etc, on top of it, if need be. You will want extra candles. Your order is so very appreciated, because anything ordered through my Amazon Associate links helps me to be able to stay home and write for you.
