You haven’t done the survival food “prep thing” like you know you should have. And you can see that soon, very soon, the S is about THTF. You can’t order from a supply house … no time.
So what do you do? You head to your local Super Market before the rest of the populace catches on, and you stock up. On what? Well that’s what this post is about.
Most preppers have plans for both emergency food storage and survival gear supplies. But it’s also important to consider stockpiling basic medications.
The health maintenance of your family and prepper group is the obvious reason for building up a store of medications. But don’t forget the value of medicines as part of your bartering strategy.
In a long-term disaster situation, your fiat money (those dollar bills in your wallet and purse) may be either unavailable or worthless. Probably both.
That’s why, in addition to storing food and water and purchasing survival gear as your budget allows, you should also consider stockpiling items everyone will consider more valuable than money.
Items that are valuable because of their scarcity and high demand.
I touched on this topic recently, but it bears repeating and emphasis.
