    When buying for shtf and after buy unopened cases when you can things tobuy first aid supplies candles mylar blankets many iteams can be got at affordable prices in bulk placed in proper storeage when needed a ready supply will be there to use the list can and should be long but well worth the effort after shtf tissuse by the case those 8pack pocket tissuse by the case will be a god send in long term iethey work at either end lol think people after shtf there might not be a store to resupply getting stuff now will pay off allso more than one stash would be a proper idea as shit may happen and multi stashes are a major plus

    the trouble with buying in bulk is your buying it all from one place and probably the same batch, if the batch run has an issue you could lose the whole lot.
    we don't have any cash and carry's near us so I still do a "big shop" run once a month.

    I buy in bulk for a lot things from Ebay. Space blankets for a dollar even those credit card knives can be had for about a dollar if you by a dozen or more. I buy a dollar poncho then in that bag I put a space blanket, a frerocerium rod, Some jute cord, a card knife, a p-38, a fresnsel lens, a book of matches, bandaids, a little neosporin in a sealed straw, some foil, a few hooks, line and sinkers, needle and thread and a button compass. I then seal it up and then seal it again in a vacuum seal a meal bag. I give these out to friends. The end result is wallet sized and will do you a lot of good in an emergency.

    Can you imagine how much nails will be worth!!! Just to give you an idea, nailed are sized by the penny. In the old days the penny size was how much they COST per hundred!! This was back when people worked for like 25 cents a day if you were a skilled worker. Now we treat them as one use throw away items. THAT will change fast! Hardware of all kinds will become precious real fast. I have a case of bailing wire. Back before duct tape it was the do anything tool. I also have a couple of rolls of barbed wire and fencing pliers. You can do a lot of things with those.

    Wow....great idea Texdanm...about putting the Neosporin in the straws. I never considered that but it is a great idea..and surely follows the KISS principle...Keep It Simple Stupid.

    I have done similar and put this gear into a type of heavy sealed Rubbermaid type container and duct taped it tight....but I am going to try out the Neosporin in the straws. I currently just put the tubes in a plastic bag.and into the Rubbermaid container. Just bought two new tubes of Neosporin this week.



    I was a bit stunned to be awoken to the concept of how not that long ago in our history nails were an extremely valuable commodity and often recycled when buildings were torn down and or repaired.
    So too with sewing needles...very very valuable.

    There are lots of civil war era museums around here on the Chesapeake Bay and also buildings surviving from the colonial era...along with the history of those times...down to simple daily histories of how these people who came before us lived.

    Taking these tours ...listening to the history .. made me aware of how much we take for granted in our economic affluence....which tends to deceive many of us as to how this can change overnight and as those people in New Orleans, Houston, and now Puerto Rico have learned.

    Thanks for reminding me,
