still - thanks for the reminder! That's what we're using. We have been topping off our supplies today, using this list.

Booze needs to be on that list, and rather than specifying knives and sharpening equipment, a more general 'tools' should appear. People turn to alcohol when times are bad, and those consumers are in addition to people who are already addicted. Tools- well that is obvious, yet nowhere on the list does it say anything about common hand and power tools.

#20 Washboards/mop bucket
a cheap way to do this is use one of your 5 gal buckets/lid with a new unused toilet plunger. Cut a hloe big enough for the handle thrugh the lid. Add clothes, soap and water and put one of the kids on aggitator duty. up down up down up down.
Used this camping before and it works well. Go easy on the soap.

i don't think toilet paper should be that much higher than #30 ... can't you use a leaf?! :confused:

by the way .. NAIL CLIP is more important than toilet paper ... whithout one of those, just imagine

Bottled water is not on this list and should be top 5 or so

Same with fresh produce and meats, baked goods, packaged meats and cheese. Basically all fresh food.

This stuff would be the first to go! Then all the stuff on this list. Somewhere in there Gasoline would become very scarce too.

Great post! Deserves a bump!

This is the list from Sarajevo I believe. This isnt open for you to add or move around. It was based upon what happened during the Balkan War. Not a make believe list of what you want or think.

This bad list keeps coming back like a debt collector. It has no basis in reality. I think some teeenagers sat down one day and made it up.

How many have a portable toilet in your prep?

I can see that being useful if bugging in and the there was a problem with the sewage pipes. But sooner or later you'd have to empty that thing. I used to keep on in an old van I had and it was a nice convenience; and no smell. Much better than a bucket with a toilet lid.

Still a good list to work off and tailor to your own way of living but nowhere near all inclusive or in the right order for that matter.

This list has been around for a while.
