Needful Things

Postby John Galt 1 » Sat Oct 28, 2017 2:23 pm

If the stores are all closed there are lots of little things needed to get by. toilet paper anyone?

So this thread is for items that cost less than $20 that we all need in a SHTF situation but may have forgotten to add to our preps.
Rules... short and simple posts only, less than 20 words. If you need to explain then it doesn't belong on this thread.
I'll start.

Cigarette lighters
clothes pins
string
vitamins

Your turn.

Start with all the disposables you use daily. Include all hygiene and health products you have ever needed!

Having assisted in the aftermath of several big name storms, two of the most appreciated items were baby wipes and socks! Add anything that will help you stay clean, dry, and somewhat comfortable.

Some one described war as "Months of boredom punctuated by moments of terror." Much the same can be said for survival or recovery. Swamp
