Shopping Partner

Get back to basics and get a grocery store/errands buddy. We did this during a previous energy crisis. Coordinate with your neighbor(s)—this is real neighborhood connection—trips to grocery store, library for those short trips when you can grab a couple of things for the folks next door or return books to the library. Maybe make a pact: email or call each other by a certain time each day. For example—M/W I grab what you need at the store; T/TH you pick up my needs.
