Thought I might repost this. I know it's somewhere on this site. I just posted it on the new board too.  Smile

This one was apparently drawn up by a survivor of the Sarajevo war. But it is relevant to any crisis situation, from a mere short-term blackout to something like an economic depression (which is looming in front of us by the way; George Ure can explain the why and when) to any sort of natural disaster.

Feel free to copy clip and paste for your own use as well....

From a Sarajevo War Survivor:

Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war - death of parents and friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks.

1. Stockpiling helps. but you never no how long trouble will last, so locate near renewable food sources.

2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.

3. After awhile, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war quite like toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than gold's.

4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity - it's the easiest to do without (unless you're in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)

5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without heating. One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy - it makes a lot of the dry unappetizing things you find to eat in war somewhat edible. Only needs enough heat to "warm", not to cook. It's cheap too, especially if you buy it in bulk.

6. Bring some books - escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more valuable as the war continues. Sure, it's great to have a lot of survival guides, but you'll figure most of that out on your own anyway - trust me, you'll have a lot of time on your hands.

7. The feeling that you're human can fade pretty fast. I can't tell you how many people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in fighting if you have to lose your humanity. These things are morale-builders like nothing else.

8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches

This list is a good one.
Remember cat/dog food,
tons of cat litter,
watch the saltine crackers, mine turned rancid pretty rapidly.
And lots of puzzles, they can be had for pennies at garage sales.
Also anything canned with tomatoe will be the first to form a "bump". The tomatoe, I think, is too acid for any long term storage.
Also bleach has a limited shelf life, it will become ineffective. D
