Paper Plates For Emergencies: Super Bowl Sales

Super Bowl Sunday is here and that means, before you sit down for the big game, let’s put some thought into how this American tradition can further your preps! If you have been a regular reader here for awhile you know that I LOVE holidays because each one brings its own chance to prep on a budget! To be honest, the Super Bowl isn’t a huge opportunity to prep but there is at least one thing you don’t want to miss out on: paper plates for emergencies, plastic cups and plastic utensils!

Paper Plates For Emergencies

paper plates for emergencies

Paper plates, plastic cups and plastic utensils will be invaluable in an emergency situation. If the water is off, paper removes the need to waste water on washing making things much more sanitary. If the garbage is not getting picked up it makes it easy to burn your waste materials. For this reason, you want to stock the cheap, plain white, uncoated plates. They are the easiest to burn.   If you include paper products in your prepping, you need to make sure that you have a way to safely burn them like an outdoor fire pit or wood stove. Don’t burn anything plastic coated in your barbeque or outdoor fire pit. It will leave a reside that is impossible to get off! Plastic cups and utensils are not clean to burn but can be reused many times before being thrown away. You can wipe the utensils easily with an antiseptic wipe.

Other Prepping Items to Pick Up During Super Bowl Sunday Sales:

  • Hotdogs-these are easy to cook in an emergency using little resources. Combine them with a can of beans and you have the old campfire Beanie Weanie tradition which is packed with protein.
  • Canned chili
  • Canned nuts
  • Propane (price is really coming down in my area)
  • Charcoal

 What are you finding out there to help build your preps during the Super Bowl season?
