You are expert in continuously scanning and procuring all the commodities from broomstick to drumstick well in time so that the house is running without any shut down.
This task would become a big project to your husbands, who would need stock index cards for all items, daily consumption registers, and transparent containers for oils so that the level could be monitored, etc. with all this, they would shut down the kitchen for two days in every fortnight for inventory-taking and to find that they are left with cards and registers and nothing for cooking.
