    Do not do any bartering—>>> because that may be a setup to kill you and your family. In a SHTF situation you will not be able to trust any one. Best watch as if you were in a combat situation with 24/7 watch. Also take precations on home security like maybe a fence, and fortified doors and windows. A door that opens to the inside is easy to kick in, so it would be wise to install a steel storm door that opens to the outside, as well as bars for windows that can be opened from the inside.

    The majority of the population will not stock up on food and water because most do not believe anything will happen to where they will need to do that. Also the majority believe the government, or a church will feed and take care of them but that will not be the case. Those who fail to stock up on food and water will die within the first 60 days. Those who have stocked up best be prepared to fight it out with those who will come to murder, loot, and rob what you have. Do not do any bartering–>

    @wanderingeyes11 how long did you have the water in them ? i usually dump and refill aout every 18 months from the first fill of them. i havent had any evaporation at all. i keep them in my basement cool and dark, perhaps that helps ?

    something i didnt see, used containers for water. on a limited budget you can save by filling every used milk jug , juice jug, soda jug with water. just mark the date with a marker of when you filled it. also i noticed a 12 gauge tioned in comments. a .22 rifle is considered your best survival rifle. a semi auto is great for home defense and a .22 has taken down every type of game in n. america. you can get 550 rounds for about 20 bucks

    @wanderingeyes11: i like how you arranged your goods.You’ve done a great job on a limited budget.You also have some great items to barder with.When the SHTF happens,I just HOPE YOU have a means to PROTECT your goods…I got a few ideas from watching your videos.I don’t know if you have one,but you may want to consider a water purifyer.Remember Katrina,the 1st people that began to steal and loot,were N.O .Police,,,

    Very good variety. My only suggestion if you do not have already is to buy a few hundred pounds of hard red or white wheat and hand grain mill. Wheat will maintain it’s nutritional value indefinately whereas flour loses nutritional value after 12 months. You can also sprout the wheat berries which gives you a very nutritional vegetable substitute when fresh produce is not available. Spices and drink mixes for the kids is great thinking! Take care!

    We’re on the same page major dude. Been doing the same thing ever sence I got a funny feeling about things over ten years ago. I’d get some weapons and ammo so you can hang onto all the things you’ve got. Sending the link to your vid to some friends. Good on ya.
    Look into some swimming pool cleaner. Pool shock I think it’s called. 5lbs will clean up 28,000 gallons of water. Check out Yankeepreppers channel. That’s where I found out about it.

    When using a generator, turn the main breaker to your house’s panel off, then connect the generator’s output to your AC condenser’s disconnect to backfeed into the house. This will feed all of your house’s lighting needs and several power needs without extension cords.

    Water is a BIGGIE ! We have to have a filter system , no way we can store enough unless you live in an area that supplies clean filtered spring. Otherwise, you need to learn to filter. Also there are things you can add to filtered water to further purify.
    Thanks very much for your post.
    Yes, the FAST cooking items or no cook for some days will be nessesary.

    You might want to consider keeping an inventory and stock rotation. That is when you shop and buy what you are storing, eat / use the older inventory and put in your stores. New plastic bags and containers like milk containers are make with a corn starch base and will degrade over time.

    Great job on the vid and info! You have a really good variation in food and supplies and it provides a great lesson in preparedness. I do hope you keep a firearm as well. Lots and lots of ammo too. Ammo would be an excellent barter item. Thanks again for the great vid!
