Not that I'm willing to try
You could make a limited, controlled try:

I suppose you have some sort of main switch or circuit breaker for your power grid connection. Switch it off, see how many days (or hours?) it takes before you "absolutely have to" turn it back on, and take note of that reason.

If you've got a generator, you may choose to use it for some functions (such as freezer/fridge), or pretend that there is no fuel available. Try not to "cheat", e.g. by taking your stuff to work for charging it there. Rather, terminate the experiment and optionally remedy what caused problems (e.g. get yourself a solar charger for your mobile phone).

If there are noticable seasonal climate changes in your part of the world, you may want to repeat the exercize in a different season. Here in Norway, the effect of a power outage in midwinter is quite different from one in midsummer.

Everyone knows that you should have regular "family fire drills", pretending that your house is on fire and must be evacuated (few families realize it, though!). I think similar regular "out of electricity" drills would be quite useful as well!
