When you get ready to go to the store these days, do you feel like you are preparing to enter a battlefield? With all the protective measures that we’re encouraged to take, it might seem that way. This should give you good reason to sit down and consider a few things before you head out, to make sure that you can keep yourself and your family safe.
The first thing to think of is whether or not the trip to the store really is necessary. If you can get by with what you have at home, you don’t need to go to a store and put yourself at risk. Another option to consider is ordering necessities online. There are many online retailers that can provide you with what you need, and some of them do so free of charge. While it might be a little inconvenient to have to wait before your items arrive, you will limit your risk of exposure.
If you do decide to go out still, try to limit the locations you need to go to. While it might seem wise to save money by going to several different stores, in the current conditions it is much safer to do as much shopping as possible in one spot.
