Weekend Assignment: 9/22/16

We've had some great comments on posts this week.  Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to comment!  

It’s time to close out our week here on A Working Pantry with a weekend assignment.

Are you ready????

Here you go ...

Do you have any band aides?  Not sure?  Now's the time to go check because our weekend assignment is to check our supply of band aides.  

When you need them you need them right then ... so, how's your supply of band aides?

  1. Patsy, I can say with confidence that I definitely have band-aids. Last week we were at an auction. They were auctioning of boxes filled with various stuff. I was able to get 3 huge boxes for only $1 each. One of the boxes I grabbed up was filled with all sorts of medical supplies, including lots of sterile gauze pads, Telfa pads, and a couple large boxes of band-aids, among other items. There were easily hundreds of dollars worth of medical supplies just in that box alone, all for only $1...what a huge score! We intend to organize the supplies into large ziplock bags to keep them clean and dry until we need them.

  3. Hi Patsy!

    Yes, my husband has ensured there are band-aids in the cupboard!

    What I tend to do is make improvised dressings with paper tissues or serviettes, and hold them in place with paper first aid tape or masking tape, whichever is cheaper. This mostly applies for animal use, where an ordinary bandage or band-aid wouldn't work!! Also, this way, the whole lot can be burnt in the fire afterwards! I have done the same for myself, making it look like a white first aid dressing!

    Regards,
    Rachel Holt

  6. I looked in my medical box and we have a very limited supply of band aids. I wrote them on the kitchen blackboard for purchase when we shop. I had to find something in my messy handbag and decided to clean it out. I have since rubbed band aids off the shopping list as I had a large pile of band aids frolicking around in the bottom of the bag.

  7. I bought a box of bandaids but did not use them for quite a while. When I did they no longer had enough adhesive left to keep the bandaid on! So check your supply off and on to make sure your things are still good. Also make sure you have ones of different sizes. We need ones that fit tips of fingers here. Also large ones for larger boo boos. :) If you keep adhesive tape or gauze make sure you keep a pair of sharp sizers in your stash for cutting it to size. Sarah

  8. I don't know what happens to Band-Aids in this house but they just disappear. My son is the culprit I think :-) I always make sure I have a couple of boxes on hand as I am finding it is very easy to scratch my skin now that I am older and it is getting thinner by the looks of it.

  9. Hello, Patsi!

    I'm going to comment on several posts in one spot :)

    1) I currently do not work outside the home. My job right now is at home, taking care of the house, meals, children, ect. I don't know what the future holds, but right now it is what works. Things would certainly be more "comfortable" if I worked, however more important things would go by the wayside. We have a roof over our heads, food to eat, and clothes to wear. They may not be fancy, but having me stay at home is far more important.

    2) We have a ton of band aids. While DH is mostly interested in long term food storage, he is truly passionate about medical supplies. You would be surprised but what we have!

    3) You probably mentioned this on a previous post, but I think I missed it. Where did you live when you were building your house?

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Jenn, sounds like you have a wise husband! I am going to address your question of 'where we lived while building our house' in the next 'house' post on Tuesday.

  10. We have several boxes of bandaids, we got a special kit at Sams several months ago it had several boxes with different types ( water proof, regular and the soft stretchable ones) and different sizes too. Even have a box of Muppet bandaids in it for grandkids!

  12. I am dragging the chain! I nearly missed this post somehow.
    Yes we have a good supply. Recently I found giant size or man sized bandaids. I got some for Andy and my Dad. Since I have heard Dad just loves them and he wanted to find out where I got them.
    I have added a few extra packs. We keep them in the house and each of us have medical kits in the car. I have given both the kids medical supplies for their houses. xxx

    1. Annabel, how big are the man sized band-aids? Did you purchase them online somewhere? Having a well-stocked medical kit is a very important part of my pantry!
