A close colleague and I compared notes on our tins this morning as we both arrived at work very early. We both come in to contact with a large number of people per day and it isn't hard to see how precarious household incomes are as things stand.
She isn't usually a prepper as far as I know but she did acknowledge she is slowly building up her own stocks for what might happen between now and next summer. I cautiously agreed that it wouldn't be a bad thing given that there was about a week earlier this year when bad weather meant there was no milk, bread or fresh fruit and veg to be had in my local shops. At the very worst, we already have a head start on donations via work next December?
I'd love to be growing my own produce but I live in a flat that only gets a limited amount of proper light over the winter. Outside of what I am doing, I'm going to check and refill my prep bag kept at work: couple of days of meds in addition to those I keep with me at all times, change of more comfortable clothes and socks, travel sized essential toiletries and various cupasoup-style emergency lunches and drinks. It's in a far from rural place but bad weather trapped staff there one night years ago and that won't be forgotten in a hurry!

I have for some time wanted to try solar cooking, and will over winter see if I can collect the materials and build my own solar oven, for use in spring and summer.
