Roknrandy originally posted this on another thread.  But it's such a good list, I couldn't resist posting it on its own thread. 

I have printed this out and put it in my SHTF documents so I can grab it and, if conditions permit, head out to the store for last-minute items .... before everyone else does.

Note: this was a pre-Y2K list so the prices mentioned are low.

   #1. Generators (Good ones cost dearly. Gas storage, risky. Noisy.. target of thieves; maintenance, etc.)
   #2. Water Filters/Purifiers (Shipping delays increasing.)
   #3. Portable Toilets (Increasing in price every twomonths.)
   #4. Seasoned Firewood (About $100 per cord; wood takes 6 - 12 mos. to become dried, for home uses.)

   #17. Michael Hyatt's Y2K Survival Guide (BEST single y2k handbook for sound advice/tips.)

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

WOW +1 again

here's my opinion on soome of the things on your list.

5. Lamp Oil, Wicks, Lamps (First Choice: Buy CLEAR oil. If scarce, stockpile ANY!)  definetly if you like light after dark.


6. Coleman Fuel. Impossible to stockpile too much.  unleaded gas is a good substitute


21. Cookstoves (Propane, Coleman & Kerosene) i have a coleman dual fuel camp stove.  there is a converter that will make propane work on the same stove.


also soap home made soap will cover all personal washing and liquid soap (laundry) needs.  adding scented herbs and dried friuits or leaves  makers it good and girly for the women.  Susan and her mom both love my home made lavender bars.

what about K1 kerosene?

Thanks for the list, great single place for ideas.

Great list - I printed it and then went through it - only 3 items lacking - Baby Stuff (no babies at the Two Blues house anymore but stuff might come in handy) um - no Cigarettes - DH nor I smoke (I'd like to live just a bit longer  ;))  and #100. Goats and chickens (got the chickens can't have a goat due to city ordinance - trying to figure out how I could disguise one to look like my Blue dogs).

Thanks for the list - I felt really good when I was done reading it and I needed that pick me up today.  Blessings, TBM

Bump.  This was a great list.  I just referenced it again myself and thought i'd bump it for the newer members.

Hey, G, could this be a best of thread or put in the repository somewhere?  It took me a while to find it today and I couldn't find the other thread that was mentioned.  (Probably just my lasyness for not doing more than 2 searches)  ;D

Thanks

It is interesting that the list was not created either in order of importance or order of likelihood to disappear first.

It is also interesting that this person took Y2K so seriously.  There was a lot of hype, but I never saw any credible evidence that there would be anything but a few minor inconveniences, if that.

Hmmm.... could have sworn the 100 Items thread was a "Best of" but I'm not finding it either.  I'll look some more.

Ummm...why chewing gum?

The Army pretty much has (or had when I was in) mint chewing gum in every MRE packet.  The thought behind it was that just chewing something minty makes you feel a little fresher even when you haven't had a shower in 10 days. It does kind of work.

Even sugared gum releases its sugars very quickly and can help to clean teeth after meals if its chewed long enough.  Gum is a convenient way to help protect your teeth.

Also chewing gum can reduce hunger pangs or thirst (Think of the old pebbles in the mouth trick for days of old) temporarily.  In situations where food is scarce, you can "Trick" your body into not being as hungry by chewing gum.

The act of chewing and swallowing causes the brain to release the same pleasure producing chemicals that are released by drinking alcohol or during sex.  Chewing gum would just make you feel good.

I just picked up a 60 piece pack of Eclipse gum.  Just finished the 7th piece and still don't feel anything remotly like I just had sex.  ;)

Just another 53 pieces to go and i'll report back.

The 100 first disappearing items in case of a war
« Reply #27 on: June 17, 2010, 09:46:07 PM »
Saw this list recently and it jogged my memory.  ??? It was posted by Heavy G a while back in a bartering thread. Thought it deserved it's own thread, so here goes. (turns out it wasn't from Katrina, but Sarajevo)

[the mop wringer for laundry is quite a novel idea, and there is a link to the source at the bottom with some more good ideas]
 

This is a list of the 100 items that disappeared first during the Sarajevo War


1. Generators (Good ones cost dearly. Gas storage, risky. Noisy...target of thieves; maintenance etc.)

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

 
Also, there are other good ideas on this thread:
