A couple of months ago I was looking for a payphone when my cellphone was unavailable (left at home). I drove by a half dozen gas stations that formerly had payphones outside before I finally found one that still had one of the four that it formerly had. Yes, I agree, payphones have, for the most part, disappeared (at least in my area).

Wow after 5 pages I thought I had nothing to contribute but no one has mentioned it yet! Itīs the thing I canīt live without. And yes I am weird...An enema hot water bottle! SHTF it may be hard to relieve yourself...I always use my enema bag. They are sold at Walmart for eight bucks I believe.

I guess my priorities must be different than many.
I see a lot of people mention pet supplies. I can see where a dog could come in handy as an "alarm" or a trained hunting dog, but as far as "pets" go..... I am sorry, but if it gets to the point I am worried about absolute survival for my family, Fido and Fluffy are the last things on my mind, unless they are on the dinner plate

Rolls of 4ml and 6ml plastic (and Gorilla Tape). Putting 6 mil plastic on outside of windows and 4 mil on inside of windows might make all the difference in the world of surviving winter, for those dependent upon the "grid".

You can use plastic to cover yourself during a rain storm.

You can use a large sheet of plastic to harvest rainwater.

Don't underestimate the power of pets. For one, they are likely more in tune with some things than you are. A friend of mine who is deaf was saved by his cat clawing into his chest in the middle of the night when a burglar broke in.

Well, instead of going on and on with stories of the usefulness of pets, look at Lassie! Enough said! Honestly, pets are awesome to have around just for comfort if nothing else. I don't see keeping 20 cats, but a pet or two can make a big difference in normalcy with kids and adults.

Yep, payphones are almost extinct, but they still exist in some parts of the world. When things go wrong, payphones and landlines proved to be hardier compared to mobiles.

Good point Liquor like Everclear could be used for fuel, sterilizing things, cleaning, Molotov cocktails, and getting drunk very quickly.

How do you store them without rust and corrosion?
We have strings for the hubby (4 types-12/6 string and 5/4 string bass) stored in vacuum bags with dessicant packs to absorb any moisture they might pick up. Our area is fairly humid and the oldest he's used so far is 6 years and they were fine. You can also boil used strings with a bit of vinegar and get more life from them, it shrinks nylon after it's stretched (let them cool in the water) and removes grime and oils from the windings of wound strings.

No one has mentioned wind-up clocks and watches or sundials, yet. I pick up wind-up alarm clocks when I find them, they can be hard to find.

I thought about it, too. Then I talked to many people that it didn't work on or partially worked. I've also been told as I get older, yea I'm pretty old now, that you still have to wear glasses some times.

I'm sticking to my contacts and LOTS of solution. Added benefit is that the sensitive saline solution can be used for other things during a SHTF situation.

Good Luck

Because I just had to ransack the house today looking for it: liquid Tylenol and Benadryl along with a dosing chart.

Good not just for sick kids with fever like at my house, but for those who couldn't swallow pills. Being without Benadryl in case of an allergic reaction scares me.

Also:
Clothespins
Safety pins
Metal tins
I seem to be rhyming.

Here's a funny one...Lowry's Seasoned Salt....that **** will make anything taste good! You name it, I've eaten it (in my area at least) , deer, rattlesnake, gator, squirrel, fish, turtles, the list goes on....but consider the fact that most women/children have a hard time stomaching the idea of eating such things....seriously a small container of this stuff goes a long way to making damn near anything taste better...dare I say, maybe even humans? (totally joking there) lol
