I want you to imagine something for a moment. You wake up tomorrow on what seems like a typical day, go to the bathroom, get your coffee, or do whatever you do in the mornings, and then you check your phone or computer or TV… and discover that it’s happening. The shit has officially hit the fan.
Nukes have been launched, EMP’s have taken out power across half the country, and all around the world, stock markets are plummetting to record lows. All of this happened right before you woke up, so the chaos hasn’t quite reached your area yet, but it’s only a matter of time. Time to put your bug out plan into action.
And then you remember something: You never did get around to prepping for a disaster. You thought about it a lot, but you kept procrastinating. I’ll buy some supplies next week, you thought. I’ll make a plan next weekend, you said. But you never did.
Normally, I would never recommend going to the supermarket after the SHTF. But in a scenario like this, you might have no choice. If the SHTF only moments ago, many people will be glued to their TVs, waiting for authorities to tell them what to do. During that brief period of calm, you may have time to run to the store and grab some last minute items before it’s too late.
But if you do that, what exactly should you buy? In this article, Modern Survival Online provides a shopping list for your last trip to the supermarket. What would you add?
