THE STUFF THAT RUNS OUT FIRST


Check out this post from Survive Any Catastrophe. If disaster strikes, retailers will be flooded with last-minute peppers, which will cause a rapid depletion of the store's inventory. Being prepared before a disaster strikes will help you avoid the mayhem of last-minute prepping; and you'll have supplies to help you strategically barter and trade for items that will benefit you and your family. The items on this list(in random order and slightly modified from the original) will quickly become scarce or completely unavailable during a large-scale disaster. Stock up now to avoid the chaos later!
