Emergency stash

Decided to pull out my emergency stash from my backpack….a good thing to do once in a while to make sure I remember what is in it and to make sure nothing gets too old in there….or because my regular stash is empty ? It’s a great idea to also keep an emergency stash in the car, but since my backpack goes with me pretty much everywhere I go, I think I’m covered 99% of the time.


As you can see……..I can’t say I have tons of goodies in my emergency stash, that’s for sure! After all, these are meant for emergencies. But these are things that I know I use and come in handy to have available at the drop of a hat.



I’ve got some Joint & Muscle Pain Cream.  While it was very handy for me to have some on hand after doing some marathons, the funny thing about this one is that I end up sharing it with others more than using it on myself. WARNING! If you have cats, you might get licked because some cats really really really like this one! I have to keep it away from Hendrix. While I am glad not to have lots of aches and pains ?  I love to use it for a quick waker-upper or if I am somewhere very dusty and my nose gets all stuffed up!  I just put a small dab in the palm of my hands, rub them together, cup over my nose and inhale deeply. Ahhhhhh!!!!!!


Energizing tea sticks…… I am down to my last one in my emergency stash. I have been known to

dump a whole box full in my stash and then just pull from here here and there. Today, it is actually my last-last-last one which is why I am raiding my stash before heading to the gym.  Good thing I have more arriving when the weekend is over ⏰ This is such a yummy combo of matcha tea…..green, white and red tea! Makes me feel like I am drinking a cup of colorful Christmas cheer! It’s a good think Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year!


Emergency meal-in-a-bar is an absolute must! My favorite is the Blueberry & Almost Crisp but

we also have White Chocolate & Cinnamon or Chocolate & Peanut Butter! I never know when errands are taking longer than expected and I don’t want to get the spur-of-the-moment-junk-food-munchies.  Has also come in handy when taking my kids to the school bus in the morning and “Mom!  I forgot to grab breakfast” gets exclaimed. (And keeping a box of mixed flavored snack bars in the trunk of the car is always a winning idea for carpool)


Of course, what is an emergency stash without

  • a “little” emergency knife as it works great for opening those pesky heat sealed plastic

packages – – or for peeling fruit when picnicking

  • dental floss for any MacGyver type situations or flossing

  • and extra business cards!
