Having extra supplies for bartering should be on every prepper’s plan. This enables you to barter for goods or services that you otherwise would be without!
You don’t have to have a set list per-say, but think about what you would need if SHTF and add extra to your stockpile because bets are if you need it, others will.
When I started prepping, I always knew from the start that having backup plans for backup plans is the key for success, in any SHTF situation. This is the same when we think about bartering… you are planning that others will need something and stockpiling it to trade for things you may need when there is no shops open to supply you.
I am sharing a great list only because I want you to succeed if anything were to happen. I personally have stockpiled extra of all 20 of the following list. I guess the writer and I must be on the same page … You don’t have to go all gun ho and spend all your wages and stockpile toilet paper … take your time and start slowly. Buy an extra can of food, an extra roll of duct tape etc…
Check out this great list and some of the things on the list may surprise you…
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
