Food is the most important unless you want to use that ammo to steal someone else’s food.

I am not going with like bunker supplies, but be sensible on what to save and rotate. Like don’t just save canned vegetables, don’t forget meat. And I watch for sales to stock up. For instance those tuna packets were on a good price last week and I bought about 20 packets of tuna that has a pretty long shelf life. Good source of protein!

Also, don’t forget things you won’t be able to run out and get if a bank collapse happens. If I see cough syrup or bandages and most especially ibuprofen or other fever reducers on sale, grab up a batch extra. You don’t have to go and spend a boatload of money on storing supplies all at once, but get a place to have your ‘stockpile’ and as you catch something on sale that seems like it would be good to have (don’t forget menstrual items for the ladies in your house) if you needed them.

I know they have these MRE’s and stuff like that and I just can’t afford stuff like that. But I do have some corned beef hash! LOL

Oh oh oh, and powdered milk!!! They have powdered buttermilk and regular milk which stores and you can cook with it if you can’t get milk.

Hope that helps.

You forgot raw honey.
Great food source, stomach palliative with antibiotic properties and a wonderful wound dressing.
