This scenario supposes that at some point we might be notified in advance to prepare for an extended period of time without access to the local supermarket, Walmart, etc.

Of course, we might also lose access to supplies without ever being notified that it's about to happen.

But for this thread, let's pretend that we're allowed to get 10, and only 10 items...

What area of our supplies have we neglected to cover?  Any little items, or big, that have been postponed due to giving priority elsewhere?  Or simply items that we've already prepped, but could use more of?

Please feel free to post your list of the 10 things that you'd purchase if you could only make one last trip to the store...at least for a while.
My list:

1. extra sea salt, or any salt

2. extra distilled water

3. top of the line spare can opener

4. extra assorted bandages

5. extra hoe

6. large box of baking soda

7. treat for the kids to share

8. extra fresh flour

9. 20# bag fresh sunflower seeds

10. 6-pack of feline flea/tick repellent top-spot (which protects the whole household in summer)

Challenge: Choose one item on your "didn't get around to that yet" or "could use more of that" prep list and get it this week, to make room for something else important on the "last 10 items" list  :)

You guys have already posted some really important items, and it seems the "10 most important items" will depend on what a person's needs and likes are, plus what they may already have, or not have,  in stock.
Ten I like:
1  non fat dry milk powder
2  dry beans
3  red quinoa
4  matches (lots)
5  book on survival tactics such as fire starting, shelter building, etc.
6  binoculars
7  plenty of fabric (organic cotton?) for water filtration
8  cooking pot large enough for several servings, but small enough to carry in backpack
9  backpack
10 multipurpose tool with scissors, screw driver, hammer, etc., etc.

Already I can think of things missed....

Radio Free Earth: Community Preparedness and Two Way Radios

BUY NOW

In a post-global disaster world, predators and tyrants will have the best two-way radios, and they'll use them to surveil you at a comfortable distance.

What will you have? Signal flares and red bandannas?

If so, when you least expect it, the predators and tyrants will come to take a spoil and they will torture, rape, and kill without mercy.

This is why Radio Free Earth authors Marshall Masters and Duane W. Brayton have an urgent message for everyone with a serious interest in preparedness. That being, analog RF (radio frequency) is the heartbeat of freedom. Accept no substitutes.

Watch our free videos to learn how to stay safe and free with an affordable strategy for two way communication, both near and far.
