I can’t agree more with getting prepared for hard times and stocking up on all the things you commonly use. I’ve got the normal food pantry well stocked with things that last 2 hrs or so. Also have long term foods covered, most of which will still be good long after I’m gone. Freezers are full as well. Most preppers cover these things in just a few years of prepping. After all, food is one of the most important things. Water sources and filtration is the only thing more important. But think of what you need aside from the food and security things. (Security being the third most important thing to most preppers). I bought a stack of cheap blue jeans, t shirts, socks, shoes and underwear too. I stocked the medical and hygiene bins with everything I could think of, bought loads of extra hand tools of all sorts, etc. Everyone has unique needs depending on their situation, location, budget, etc. so give some serious thought to what you could need if the stores either stopped having many of these things or they got priced out of your range. Many never thought we could see shortages like we have in the last couple years already, but I believe we will see it much worse down the road.I recently went up to the feed store to buy more bulk seeds and as I have said before in Chat, they didn't have a whole lot to chose from, but I did get some of what I was looking for. I just wanted to do the top off from what I had previously bought this year. I have gone 3 times this year. I ended up putting everything in individual vacuum sealed bags for the freezer. Seeds are getting hard to come by from what the girl behind the counter told me. Get them while you can!! I phoned my neighbor to inform him. He is going Monday when they open back up. Being able to grow your own may just be a life saver. . .
I would also suggest to stock up as much as you can. I topped us off a couple months ago trying to get us ready for whatever may be coming.
