Hi we were having a discussion at my DDs yesterday evening about what things people will stock up on 'just in case' Well I've always had a 'just in case' store cupboard since about 1960 :) but then I grew up with rationing and post war austerity. My DD thought perhaps pasta, flour ,rice and lentils as a start. I said what about salt and spices as I always have a good stock of them in the cupboard, they help to zing up even the most basic meals . I would never be without sweet chilli sauce either if I can help it. But then I do like spicy food. I've never thought that loo roll was anything you had to have in great stock, as it just take s up too much space .Perhaps tea bags and maybe coffee, in my case definitely ground coffee and UHT milk.  

So what do you think what's an essential 'just in case ' item, bearing in mind there is a strong possibility with the present situation at the moment that inflation may it 10% by the summer.
