Between sick days and snow days, new babies and school holidays, we know firsthand how hard it is to be stuck inside with kids for what feels like eternity. In Episode 145 of The Mom Hour, Meagan and Sarah offer tips for stocking your home so that when that stomach flupocalypse does strike, you’re prepared with enough staples to not only keep you alive, but also have a little fun. Join us!

I just listened to your podcast for the first time and loved it; thank you! I really appreciate the bath tips and will be putting those in to play!
for restocking medicine and things we use a lot I like to have 2 on hand, one that’s open and actively being used and one in “back stock.” When we run through the open one, I add it to my shopping list.
Also, I try to never run out of laundry detergent.

Hi Stefani! We’re so happy you’re here! Welcome!
Haha, running out of laundry detergent would be BAD. Good tip. 🙂 Great tip about the meds as well. Thanks for commenting!
