Without clean oxygen, we die in minutes. (invisible to the naked eye) Without water we die in days. (H2O Clearly so simple so vital) without food in weeks (about 40 days?). Now, if we choose NOT to have a divine intelligent being as our friend, if we die, it will be forever. ("the invisible One" Hebrews 11:27) In response to what I think is really being prepared in advance.
William Irizarry (11 hours ago)
Some good pointers. This video also promotes ideas from others. Some are very good, in my opinion.

Seeds must be stored in a cold-cool area away from heat, moisture and light, as these all degrade them quickly.

I wonder where all these apocalyptic ideas come from? Revelations.

I think food will be worth more than ammo, in an economic collapse. Better not trade bullets to someone who will use them against you. Your locked box, home or cabin might look like salvation to someone who is unprepared.
1charlastar (2 days ago)
no candy, in a SHTF situation, you better have ammo to protect your food.

I understand barter, I understand the desperation that can make people do things they would not do.alcohol can alter their thinking and then use the bullets to kill my family and take my stuff.other items you mention are great for barter and safer as well.
1charlastar (2 days ago)
john, these items are not for GIVING but for using to barter for other things you need, They are very valuable to people who use them. And stores will be cleaned out immediately in a disaster.

Btw, I see no need for months worth of supplies. If the grid goes down world wide we will have at the most 3 weeks before every nuclear power plant explodes ala Fukushima. Within a week, this entire planet will be too radioactive to sustain. Life and it will remain so for hundreds of thousands of years. What is need is supplies to keep you going as long as the grid stays in tact.

Essential oils -they can replace man made antibiotics, anti-virals and anti-fungals. Can disinfect your Home and you. With essential oils you can easily make your own personal care and house cleaning products. Just make sure you are getting pure and unadulterated essential oils.

There is a lot of peer reviewed science on herbal extracts and nutraceuticals. I yearly attend the SW Conference on Botanical; Medicine to stay up with the latest research. No hippie-dippie presenters there. Just doctors and other recognized researchers. Having had severe reactions to certain pharmaceuticals and vaccines, I had no choice but to begin researching elsewhere for reliable alternatives. A growing number of MDs are now integrating natural medicines with conventional western treatments and getting better results much of the time. Bee Venom Therapy is used in the US by MDs but in injections. In China, MDs use live bees in hospitals along with contemporary medicine, frequently with stunning results. Research is ongoing to extract the active components.
1charlastar Until I see peer reviewed science you can keep your folk medicine.

I had polio at age 11 from the live polio sugar vaccine and a stroke at age 20 from vaccines. NEVER AGAIN. After the polio vaccine, the MDs didn't recognize what it was and kept giving me antibiotics until I became allergic. You don't know much about esential oils. Many have antibiotic qualities even though they are not 'antibiotics'. Stings from live honeybees can work as localized antibiotics. I have used bee benom therapy twice that cleared documented MRSA in friends who were not getting well from antibiotics.
Essential oils don't do a damn thing for infections. Antibiotics and vaccines save lives, get those.

If the SHTF long enough heat in cold areas will be extra precious. I was seeing some of these new electric chainsaws and some of them rival big gas units for power. Of course was looking at solar to charge them but need to look more into it but wood heat with no chainsaws is an all summer long gig to gather wood. Not fun. Oh and do not forget oil for the chain and a lot of extra blades/chains and learn how to sharpen them. If you could gather wood and had several of these setup you would be a LOT of peoples bestest friend. Also looking at a solar powered cart to move the wood out of the woods. It does not need to be fast.

Wow! Some dumb comments. Hard to believe. Especially on the ammo thing. Hey Mr. Hair Bun Guy, if you have a guy with some ammo to sell, and he can sell you more in the future, but you're too ignorant to make it yourself, WTF would you shoot your ammo guy? I know that actually thinking is toxic to millennial's, but please try. Special skills: Ammo production. Gun Smith. Agriculture. (some commenters on here may not understand what that encompasses.) Hunting. Manufacturing. Welding. Mechanics.s Engineering. Processing of many things. (Food for long storage, etc.) Construction. Plumbing. Framing. Electrical. Law Studies. From Latin to modern 1776. (2x what it takes for a lawyer to get a license to practice.) Power walls. EV from scratch. Hydrogen power. Etc. But I'm a 50 yo dinosaur who needs to move by the end of the month, but can't find a place in LA with a garage with these Hair bun millennial's dumb ass smart phone tec! We've been sold out! That's what all the gun control has ALWAYS been about! They know it, and they're scared for themselves because they know what they have done! Places with the strictest gun control have the worst offenders demanding it.

Don't store hybrid seeds. Need seeds that you can harvest to replant next year.
1charlastar (2 days ago)
You just can't use the seeds of hybrids for next year's planting. They don't reproduce true and often yield nothing. Several times over the years I let big, beautiful squash plants come up and grow in the garden when they came from store-bought squashes. Nothing ever grew from the flowers. Nada. Zip. Open pollinated seeds are more useful. But you still need to know how to save them. Tomato seeds must be fermented, washed and dried to sprout next year.
Nothing wrong with hybrids.

Learn to make your own tinctures from local plants where possible. I make a gallon of elderberry tincture every year. It is great against viral infections like colds and flu. Must have Everclear, vodka or tequila on hand to make the tinctures. Even rum will do.
Danielle Shuford-Mack (23 days ago)
Learn how to get medicine from nature and you will always have something to trade. Learn how to get suffer from swamp water for ammunition. Learn how to get salt from sea water, learn how to get sugar from things like maple trees. You will be one of the few people with this skill and knowledge and be rich in a post apocalyptic world.
Danielle Shuford-Mack (23 days ago)
I would add copper and brass. Copper is needed to make copper coils for generators, is is easily formed into things like bowls and knives or even ammunition. Melt down used .22 brass and save it. Brass can be used to make more casings for other firearms. Save the ashes and charcoal from your fires. The charcoal can be ground up to make gunpowder and the ashes can be used as soap.
If you really think a Mad Max scenario is coming don't worry about metal, it's everywhere. Stock up on traps though. :)
Danielle Shuford-Mack (23 days ago)
If you pop out the primer on a spent shell you can use it to make a impression mold for more casings.

Stockpile booze??? Hell's, just set up a still. Stockpile corn and yeast, grow barley. You'll be set for life. I agree with you about seasonings. We're going to o have to learn how to live without the exotic flavours that many of us are used to. However,many seasonings can easily be grown. We have dill coming up each year as it readily self-seeds. It's a wonderful seasoning for all kinds of things not just pickles. Coriander, which most folks know as cilantro also bears an aromatic seed that can season both sweet and savory dishes. Learn what you can grow what you can forage, and how best to use them, not only for seasonings but as medicine as well. If you learn how to use herbs properly, you'll never have to put up with a bland meal.

Nope gold and silver is crap as well almost no one has any nor do they care about it!!! You can't aquire enough gold and silver to last number two their is not enough to go around!! I'm not selling farm fresh food for gold and silver!! Well buddy I can brew alcohol!! I do agree with your over all point!! Because I too have told many and argued with many more and listed most of what you got on your list as a better way to prep than gold and silver!! I think lots of folks are good in their own right but I'm sad to say that many of them are dumbasses lol!! They just think that they can get a fat sack of gold and silver and that'll save them they don't think shipping will stop at least not for long!! I say well you'll find out!!

Nowadays to many ppl r to dependent on technology. That many ppl with no life skills would be weak and most of them useless. Learning skills is a big valuable thing. The more skills u learn the better u will be even if there is no apocalypse. Skills are valuable in many way. It could save you money over all in life itself. So learning new skill s is valuable in todays Society.

Matches would be valuable. Cuz for ppl who r lazy or don't have skills in making a fire. They will go nuts for it. Fire is a big thing we cook and keep our self warm. Plus smoker can't smoke with out fire. Lol.

ferventheat1 (1 month ago)
Especially items that are controlled in quantities + age restricted items, (medicines, pain relief pills, lighters/matches, knives, shaving blades), and water filters/purifiers, washing powders/liquids and hygiene items especially SOAP BARS and toilet paper (no expiry date!), and of course, food food food! Chocolate /candy are good long term storage items, can also double as cooking ingredients if needed and high energy survival food. The key is buying storable items that people use every day so can't live without. Skills are also good bartering items and are already being bartered in some places. These all depend on one's plans to either bug out or stay put.

Alcohol percentage liquid, ammo, cane sugar, spices, real honey, vinegar, dry grains proper storage container and condition (certain cultures further dry grains to increase shelf life), uncrack lentils, hard track, real syrup, gasoline goes bad, certain oils have two yrs shelf life I would just stick to storing firewood. Incas had a drying method for potatoes giving shelf life for 8-20 yrs. Just research ancient culture use for long term storage.

Hello, I think BIC lighters would be the most sought out items, since power grid would fail, lighting fires would become the number one item for life. And soap, more than medicine and any other medical supplies is the most basic stuff to keep hygiene.

How about the one group of people who will barely notice a shtf event - the Amish. Also, if you can find them, the three books on identifying wild plants to eat by Euell Gibbons. His most popular one was Stalking the Wild Asparagus. The Italians were forced to do this during wwII and much of it is still part of their diet today. If you know where to look and what to eat you don't have to starve.
