Throughout the different human race civilizations stories of the DOOMSday soon to come have always persisted. Whether it will come from higher powers as punishment for our sins or from mother Nature still uncertain. But what it is true, is that must of those ancient civilizations have set our present as the time in which these events could take place. From the Egyptians to the must mentioned predictions of the Mayans, they not just proclaimed of an end of days, but instead they warn us of a new beginning. This blog has been created to share our thoughts on this topic. How to prepare for unforseen worldwide events or any inputs of interest that might find answers to our member's questions regarding our survival. Please feel free to share.

“Be Rich in times of misery”

Having a grocery store in which to acquire provisions becomes a luxury, if it still available during a dooms day event. Here is when having something to trade with comes handy. It is difficult to predict what you will need or what you will run out of first in your supply list. Keeping items such as silver coins, alcohol beverage/Rum bottles, lead in small bricks or balls which can be used to make gun ammunition, become a commodity in a post apocalypse event.

These not commonly used items (including alcohol beverages like in my own case as no one in our household drinks more than a glass of wine occasionally) become a good trade currency to others who will be glad to exchange other goods for it. Take a look and research into “what” move other people in terms of them giving up whatever it is you could use during harsh times, such as food; medicine; etc.

*Alcohol; cigarettes; lead; silver; whatever you consider for the purpose of trading in need be, make sure it is something you won’t see yourself needing later for your own use. Packing up “only” what you “think” you and your family might need will put you in a position of having to trade some of it for else you didn’t expect to run out of, then finding yourself in need of that later. Whatever medicine; food; water and other supplies should be consider as first priority and not trade items, unless emergency requires for you to so. Having specific items for the specific use of trade will avoid the need to let go on first priority ones.

I agree that you might need the supplies yourself. The biggest problem with this post is defence, how will you defend your own grocery store from desperate survivors? I myself have prepared in a different way. I plan to settle and create a good community. Also this grocery store depends scavenged goods, and so isn‘t self sufcient.

You need to put up a camp in some remote valley and start building with your group. Produce instead of consume! A grocery store alone would be a bad idea, when put between defences, weapons and food&water gaining contructions...

In other posts in our Blog we covered the need for and how to be able to produce/ cultivate or gather food and other resources as well as creating a community for a better overall defense and growth. This blog was more about tips on items we can keep some how that can become handy in times of trading, which will always be there as it is impossible for us to have ALL we need/wish in during such events as a doomsday event.
