Do you remember in Jr. High, when you were expected to partner up with someone in class, and it was the worst ever? No matter what class, those partner assignments were the worst.
In this age of random food and supply shortages, partnering up with a few friends, colleagues, or family members can often be the difference between having what you need and going without.
I have a few people in my life that will keep an eye open when they’re shopping for what I often use, and I do the same for them. We’ll ask each other to pick up something on our next Costco runs. Or we’ll split one of those large quantity bags of rice or flour when it makes sense to do so.
One of the things I’ve learned about myself is that a full pantry makes me feel happy. I won’t ever hoard a room full of toilet paper or keep a year’s supply of canned beans on hand, but I won’t ever run out, either. Having grocery partners helps to keep a household running smoothly.
If you haven’t yet asked anyone to be a grocery partner, you should consider it. We can’t be everywhere all at once and having a team to work with helps keep things running smoothly for everyone.
I expanded on this idea on Facebook today, check it out and let me know your thoughts!
