We have all seen the many threads on what to put in our Bug Out Bags and I have successful built one hell of a B.O.B. because of ALOT of useful information/tips from fellow survivalists on ATS.
So now I am interested in the necessities at home. Let's say that we don't need to "bug out". We are able to stay put because the gestapo hasn't kicked down our door just yet. We may have electricity we may not. I for one wouldn't count on it.
So here is where I have started.
75 lbs of white rice from Costco.
50 lbs of flour.
several huge cans of baked beans
several huge cans of corn
I lost count of how many 12 packs of Ramen noodles. Let's say 20 12 packs.
Probably 50 cans of Spam.
A pound of salt and pepper.
5 lbs of pancake batter. add water.
A water filter to dip into a puddle or river and get clean safe water.
Huge container of syrup
Lots of peanut butter
A couple gallons of vegetable oil.
5 lbs of yeast (for baking bread)
I even went out and bought some wire and learned to make a snare. Catchin rabbbits in the front yard just for practice.
Ohh, and a Shotgun to protect it all.
And several other items. You get the point.
What I want is to collaborate with others to get some more ideas as to what to stock up on. I am convinced that the brown stuff will hit the fan very soon. We would all be wise to stock up.
Is there any amount of "Stocking Up" that is going to make you sleep better at night knowing you're covered??? When is enough enough???

You have the basics to stay alive, as long as you have infinite water.
You might consider some barter able items like .22 ammo, whiskey in small bottles, feminine products, toiletries, cigs, drugs, junk silver coins, duct tape, tools, building materiels, nails, screws, bandaids, bullion cubes, bic lighters, matches, firewood.
There are lots of other things too, but that was a quick list of stuff a person might need.
