Stockpiling is an important part of any preppers plans. Having extra food items and other resources on hand offers up answers in times of disaster. How we store those items is of the utmost importance. A preppers stockpile is only as good as the person who develops it. Even the best storage plan can miss some things. Here are 6 items preppers often neglect to stockpile.
The desire to use those guns often clouds the prepper’s vision and they think hunting is step one. Storing traps and knowing how to use them is the best way to procure food. You can even store live traps and breed food! It doesn’t get better than that.
Clothing and other materials will need repair. If you don’t have the sewing needles and thread to make those repairs that can be a problem. This is hard to understand in a time when everything is cheap and easy. It won’t always be this way.
The armory seems to be a big goal for many preppers. They want all kinds of guns. Well, what about the grease, cleaner, and tools to clean all those weapons? This is something most preppers forget to store.
Whether we are talking about parts for cars, lawnmowers, or the home itself, we all need to focus on having spare parts stored up. These spare parts are critical because we won’t have access to them following a disaster.
While the bug out is always high on the list of prepper plans, what about maps? Have you ever considered bugging out from the bugout location? It can happen.
Maps will be essential to survival, just as they are in the wilderness, so to will they be in the modern world.
This has to be one of the most overlooked prepping items. We store lots of food but we hardly consider the cooking oil needed to prepare it. Cooking oil can act as many other things as well, especially if you stock up on things like olive oil and coconut oil.
