    I do these things. Imagine running out of garbage bags, think of the disaster that would be.

      Oh my goodness!! It would be so awful! Just as bad as running out of toilet paper… “Uh… here’s a piece of paper towel..” 🙂

    Great post! I would not want to run out of any of these items.

    I buy small holiday tins and give each person cookies to take home too with their leftovers. I organize them before and have them ready on the shelf near the door. I also put their names on the tins because some people like certain cookies best and I want to make sure they have more of them : )

Let me know what you think!
