Be Prepared for When You're Sick


When living alone, it sucks to get sick. It sucks even more to have to go out when sick to buy stuff to make you feel better. So, word of advice, if you don't already have some basic things, like facial tissues, put them on your grocery list before you get sick. I like to have on hand:

  • soup
  • crackers
  • tea
  • facial tissues
  • cold medicine
  • a humidifier (I can't sleep without one when I'm sick. Last time I was sick, I drove 45 minutes each way to pick one up from my parents' house because I didn't want to spend the money.)

What do you likeย having on hand for when you get sick?
