emergency disaster supplies
Knowing what long-term emergency disaster supplies to stock up on can be intimidating for the newcomer to disaster survival preparedness. The following list is based on the thinking that sometime in the future some major world-changing event (aka, TEOTWAWKI) is going to occur.

Emergency Essentials/BePrepared

At that point it is possible that all modern conveniences would no longer be available, including electricity, running water, and manufactured goods. Therefore people who are planning for a TEOTWAWKI already have or soon plan to have a survival retreat where they can store their emergency disaster supplies.

If you are new to preparedness, use this list to check off what you already have and what you need. Don’t let the length of the emergency disaster supplies list frighten you. Sooner started, sooner better able to survive. Get started now.

Water

Even in the early days of western expansion in the United States, trade goods were also included for those explorers leaving the civilized east to go west of the Mississippi. There they would trade knives, needles, beads and metal cooking utensils for furs or other items produced by the natives of the area. They even exchanged goods for services when “hiring” a guide to take them further west or to show them the best area to trap.

Tips for the Thrifty

  • Buy in bulk (Sam’s, Costco, Big Box Stores)
  • Shop Discount stores

  • Freecycle.org
  • Dollar Tree

  • Facebook local buy-sell groups
You would be surprised at the number of items on this list that I've been able to pick up for next to nothing. My favorites for all kinds of tools, hardware, canning jars, etc., are estate sales run by the family of the deceased.

Go thru drawers  too, because a lot of times, the family figures there's nothing of value there. I've picked up thermometers, first aid supplies, even  new toothbrushes.

Be a pack rat (save your old stuff that may not be perfect or is too big or too small, it may come in handy). Learn to find new uses for items you may already have. That will expand your emergency disaster supplies.

Remember, while you may not think you have even a start on your emergency disaster supplies, a thorough look around the house, storage shed, garage, basement and attic may turn up a number of treasures. Also, if you have a truck you might offer to haul away people’s garage sale leftovers. You could pick up a LOT that way, and for very little cost.

With a little imagination and effort you could obtain items for your emergency disaster supplies that you might not have been able to afford.




Live Well!
