    I find myself stressing about this. I hate consumables. I hate running out of things. However in a long term survival situation what do you bring the most of, beans or bullets? What about things like salt and pepper? I know people put away alot of food but when that is gone, then what? What...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am new to this forum and prepping in general. The purpose of this thread is to see what unorthodox and unusual uses people have for ordinary household items. Imagine if you will: You are caught unaware with few if any preps, all you have at your disposal is the usual household...

    Cant you get decent quality plastic "totes" over here anymore :( (Australia) Well I filled all my old "totes" (we just call them containers over here) up with stuff now (tools, food etc), went to get some more from the hardware store and there are just simply none that are made properly at...

    Just a heads up! You may want to check your local Wal-Mart's camping section. They have some big price cuts going on in order to move the last of their inventory. Examples of some of the sales: 202 Piece First Aid kit for $11.00 Multipack Hot hand, feet, and body warmers (all sizes) for...

    Hey everyone, So I'll be in a Walmart tonight with $40 to spend on food. Whats my best bang for the buck option in terms of food preps (for two)? I know from reading here its probably something canned, dry beans, and rice? I already have about 20 assorted cans of veggies, soup, and chili...

    Gas prices are starting to go through the roof, will this make people go into panic buying mode and buy other supplies - especially food?
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have been learning about couponing so that I can maximize my money allocated to preps. I've dabbled in it about a month and decided to get serious about it. So my plan was to find a good food for prepping and load up on them for as little cost as possible. Specifically, I purchased 80...

    Ok guys and gals, my question is pretty simple, but I am complicating it sort of. When I think of storing goods and survival goodies in my house I think of having most of it in one or two spots set aside in my house for the sole purpose of storage. MY PROBLEM: I have two roomates who hate...

    After the basics are sufficiently covered - water, food, shelter, defense, and first aid - I would submit that the very next step should be communications. Here is a breakdown of the readily available options: 1. GMRS/FRS. Public frequencies, cheap, commonly available (these are the blister...

    First post so HI to the group... So I placed two orders for #10 cans the end of December. One order to The Ready Store and one with Emergency Essentials. I called and both vendors and they said they had the product. The Ready store said it would ship in 20 days max because of a warehouse change...

    The other day my wife and I were up at the camp / bug out location checking on things. We go up there, check the doors, check the windows, look for any physical damage that might have resulted from a break in. We also take inventory – bottled water, soft drinks, plates, plastic spoons and forks...

    I find it interesting that Taco Bell can create so many items on their menu by mixing and matching about eight different ingredients. There is the taco meat, sour cream, refried beans, tortilla shell, taco shell,,,,. But by the looks of the Taco Bell menu, it appears they have a thousand...

    My wife thinks I'm nuts, but yesterday I came up with an idea for Christmas presents for my non-preparing family members. I base my idea on posts I see on this forum about what to do when people show up at your door when SHTF. Instead of going to Home Depot, Macy's, Walmart, etc ... and buying...

    Sometimes these "what should you stockpile" list can get a little out of hand, some of them I have seen might be 100 items long. I wanted to make a list of the most 5 important things someone should have on hand. Unless there are some kind of special medical condition, or some kind of other...

    I am in process of making a entire list of everything so I know what I have and also for insurance reasons. I thought I would show my list of Coleman gear and ask for any suggestions you may have. This is all Coleman Product: Coleman Gear: 2 Tents (Sleep 22 total) 1 Camp Kitchen 1 Slow...

    In the last say 6 months ive had freinds and family who have been calling me a crack head in the last year start coming to me "secretly" some times ashamed and asking me (the youngest in the family) what they should be doing just incase. I know that some of you out there have the same things...

    There are 4 "things" I rarely see discussed - if at all - on this forum, that I find incredibly important. One in particular is shocking to see ignored by this community (and somewhat related to another item on this list). 1. Merino Wool Clothing As far as I understand, merino wool is one of...
