What I would like now is plenty of chains in different sizes!

Don't forget a countersink/boring bit for your brace/push/eggbeater drill, in case you need to get the head below the surface of the wood. Stock flat and locking washers for these as well.

Other items that come to mind...

Eyelets and grommets (tarps and alike will need fixing and improvising)
Webbing gear material (for repairing and modifying backpacks, etc)
Rubber washers & o-rings
Mechanical lubricants
Bicycle parts; chains, inner tubes, tires, break pads.
Casters
Spare springs for what equipment requires them (ie for sidearm and rifle magazines).
Rain ponchos
Kneepads
Crank straps
Bungee cords
Back support belts
Rubber boots
Ball pein hammers
Safety goggles
N95 dust masks
Nitrile gloves
Lava-type soap
Mineral spirits
Hardhats
Vapor respirator masks + spare cartridges
Coping saws + spare blades
Hack saws + spare blades
Bolt cutters (multiple sizes)
Spray paint (useful colors)
Chain
Schedule 40 pipe plus fixed and swivel cheeseboros (for rigging)
Aircraft cable and clamps (for rigging)
Many types of rigging equipment such that is used in lighting and film production could be very useful. As it's very reliable, durable and strong.
http://www.mutualhardware.com/

For those with their own power resources.
Fuses (assorted)
Capacitors & transistors (can be harvested from old & unused electronics)
Small device power transformers (can be harvested from old & unused electronics)
Rosin core solder
DVM multimeter.
VariAC
Soldering iron
Spare soldering tips
Electrical tape
Shrink tubing
Photoresistors
Alligator clips
Project boxes
Breadboards
Crimp terminal connectors
DeoxIT
2 conductor wire of various gauges
Spare battery terminals
Lots of this stuff can be found at Mouser instead of a place like Radio Shack.
http://www.mouser.com/

Plus plenty of repair and maintenance literature in areas that you may not be very proficient with.
Electronics, electrical, masonry, mechanical, plumbing, firearms, etc

I'm already in the habit stripping and harvesting usable parts from every item before it heads to the landfill.
WOW! I'm coming to your 2013 garage sale!

Gorilla glue seems to have a long shelf life. I have half of a bottle of it in the closet for the last 4 years and it's still good. Even though it's been half used.

I've never used Gorilla Glue. I did see my Dad's fingers after he used some. It stayed on a week, or so.

So this can be used with PVC? It sounds like it!

Nails
Wood Glue
Hand Cranked Drill
Drill bits

A hand plane and extra blades
Paint bushes

LOL BRUSHES, not bushes.

Paint brushes will be for applying the oil based paint or Thompsons water seal which are also on that list.
They both have a very long shelf life and may be needed to weather protect whatever house youre living in since there will be no more home depots to buy supplies from.
You'll need to keep it protected from weather for as long as possible so it doesnt rot around you.

A house can fall apart very fast without keeping it protected.
