Pandemic supply chain issues have brought havoc to the paper goods aisle, so double-check supplies of toilet paper, tissues and paper towels now.  Even if you won't host houseguests this year, it's time to take inventory of disposable supplies in bathroom areas.  

While you're at it, make a quick survey of the items your family will need during cough-and-cold season. Will you be able to weather a bout of the flu? Check supplies of over-the-counter medications and add any needed items to the seasonal shopping list.

You'll be ready for holiday guests--or the season's first sniffles--with a well-stocked bathroom.
