Hi and thanks for the always needed reminder. I live in a shoe box apartment just outside of the city. Iv'e got NO room for storage but under the
sink instead of cleaning products i have the following:
1 x single ring gas stove with a heat exchanger on it
12 x pressurized gas cylinders. (Enough for 2 week supply)
1 x Army issue 1st aid kit
24 x cans of tuna dated 2015-17
20 x canned tomatoes
2L's of soy sauce
2 x flashlight with optional low noise wind up handle
20 x canned meals (beef stew, chicken stew, Chinese, Indian, etc)
2kg powderd milk
2 kg of porrage oats
4 x toothbrush, 3x 24 tablets of painkillers.
500ml hydrogen peroxide
1 x assorment of different batteries
1 x small tool kit (pliers, cable cutters/strippers, etc)
2 x 50L rucksacks (me and my partner)
1L of bleach, 5x soap bars
2x survival straws
A few other bits and bobs
I also have 5x thick long and strong planks of wood inside the boiler cubord with 6" nails and a hammer should as the last resort i need to barricade
and being that i live in the UK the most important thing, 1x ali baseball bat. I also grow an assortment of my own herbs on my windowsill. Garlic
being the most important for health.
All this plus a few other bits is in a space less than 2ft by 2ft. So there's a good example of how little room is needed for the bare essentials. I
also have 2 large buckets outside on the balcony which being 50L each can collect just enough rain water for emergency situations. I also rotate this
stock and eat it when its around 2 months to expiry, however i always replace what iv'e used prior to eating.
Remember the baseball bat don't think people are going to knock politely in a SHTF situation.
All this set me back around £200ish but whats that on the price of survival? To me this is normal and only 40+ years ago it would have been
considered as very little prep.
I think this stuff should be taught in school but the establishment wouldn't want that now would they ha ha. Happy prepping all.
