Week # 8 (& 9) – SHTF Planning
What I Did To Prep This Week – SHTF Plan Building
Only a few updates to the SHTF plan over the last two weeks due to a bit of travel on my part. Focus on food and water.
a. Food / Water
I’ve been trying to build the food pantry bit by bit to help defer the costs a bit. I found some Green Giant green beans on sale and picked up a case (8 cans). I would have grabbed more but had a space issue in the car at the time.
Also, picked up an additional case of bottled water and a large gallon bottle of water. This is adding to my water supply and making me feel a bit more at ease on what I have (20 gallons). Not there yet but getting on a roll.
b. Household Products
I also picked up a case of toilet paper (45 rolls) on sale. Something you don’t think about but every little bit helps – especially when you have kids. Roughing it is one thing, having a few usual comforts will help offset the shock and inconveience. Remember, just because you may be ready to handle the inconvenience, doesn’t mean your family will.
Grabbed two plastic containers to hold food and other items. This will help keep things dry and fresh in the event of a flood, etc. I feel it’s a worthwhile investment as they are pretty cheap and helps keep things organized a bit.
What’s Planned For Next Week?
The plan for this week is to stock up on some food and install a lock that I purchased for the garage.
Disucssion Point / Thought Of The Week
I thought I’d add a topic to these updates to help us better understand a specific prepping topic. We have a great group of readers here and I’d like to leverage that knowledge base.
So, what do you think will happen in the suburbs when the SHTF? Do you see widespread crime and, if so, why?
Thanks again for your participation. Love to hear the feedback.
