Last week, my daughter had a soccer game at 7 PM. Since it's only mid-October, I was kind of shocked when I looked at the weather to figure out how to dress and I discovered that it was going to dip to around 45° while she was playing ball. The other parents and I showed up in full coveralls, winter coats, hats, blankets, and snow boots. I even broke out my hand warmers, and let me tell you, we were still chilly!

Last year, I was totally unprepared. When it snowed, I had to make TRASH BAG SNOW PANTS. Y'all. Trash Bag Snow Pants. You can find my tutorial here. And I was stuck inside for days because I couldn't get out of my driveway because of the snow and ice. It SUCKED. Actual image of me from Winter 2021-22 right here.

So, I thought about all of the things I need to stock up on BEFORE there is a mad rush at the store. Nothing like waiting until it snows to get rock salt and snow pants! I figured I'd share my list with you because life is busy and we could all use a reminder or two!
