    I 'get' the whole stock up on meds part, but our ins doesnt allow for mutiple fills on medication..this alone would be a disaster-no asthma medication, so I stocked up on coffee, which is a good (no other option) for albuterol...any other advice?

    Add Dial soap (antibacterial), lots of hand sanitizers (small bottles), BUG SPRAY (small pump bottles), toilet paper, feminine hygiene products (tampons) and baby diapers.

    You need a written list of important phone numbers in case you can't access your cell phone memory but have access to a working land line phone. Also, power outages also mean no ATM machines, so keeping some cash on hand for emergencies is a good idea. My "kit" also has paper plates, plastic utensils, paper towels, toilet paper. Baby wipes can be used for general hygiene to avoid using water.

    I would also have a written medication list along with any allergies for each member of the family.
    And I'd probably throw in something to keep yourself amused in you are going to be confined to a small space for a while..

    My insurance lets me get mail delivery of 3 months at a time. I make sure I refill as soon as they'll let me, because it is before I run out, so if I keep on top of it, I can get about a month ahead. Also, some of my prescriptions are actually cheaper at Walmart, with the $4 a month deals, so I don't go through the insurance company on those. Those I can fill whenever I have an active refill left, with no limitation on when.
