Between a calendar full of fun holiday activities and snowy, unpredictable weather, unexpected house guests can show up at anytime. You never know when family and friends will need a place to crash or when a blizzard can leave road conditions too dangerous. With Augason Farms, you don’t have to be worried about being caught unprepared for overnight company. Below, we’ve featured some great products to have on hand, as well as some simple tips and tricks to make sure your home is ready.
There are a few simple steps you can take to make sure your bathroom is always ready for company. Next time you’re at your grocery store, stock up on some travel size toiletries. Small personal bathroom items like shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, mouthwash and even contact solution can make big difference in your guest’s experience. Make sure you have several rolls of toilet paper easily accessible and set out clean towels, hand towels and washcloths for your guests to use.
Not everyone has a designated guest bedroom, but everyone has a couch that can be a place to crash when needed. There are still a few things you can do to create a welcoming environment for your guests, whether you have a spare room or not. First, make sure that you have extra pillows on hand and clean pillowcases and bed sheets on the bed or in the linen closet. Keep a few light blankets stacked in a pile so your guests can layer blankets according to their own comfort level. If the bathroom isn’t attached to the bedroom, or if your guests are on an air mattress or couch in the living room, it’s a good idea to have the path to the bathroom slightly lit. A small lamp or nightlight plugged into the wall will do the trick.
This is an important area to focus on for guests, and Augason Farms can help! The biggest problem can be to know what to serve in the morning, and fortunately, we have plenty delicious pantry pouches that are designed for dual use: daily, as a quick and easy meal when needed, or for long-term food storage. And best of all, it’s all easy to cook so there’s no extra work involved for you. Here are a few breakfast items that you should have on hand in the event of company.
Instant Blueberry Granola with Milk- The Augason Farms Instant Blueberry Granola with Milk features an all-time favorite for a breakfast cereal. Not only milk, but the unique blueberry flavor, added to the chewy crunchiness and yummy sweetness of granola, make it a delight and a nutritional dynamo.
Instant Strawberries with Oatmeal- The Augason Farms Instant Oatmeal with Strawberries gives you the taste you want and the nutrition your body needs in a hearty breakfast. The rich maple flavoring and the tartness of sweet strawberries compliment the robust taste of oatmeal in this palate pleasing favorite.
Whether you know company is coming to visit, or if a bad storm forces your party guests to crash for the night, Augason Farms can help your kitchen be stocked and ready.
