SHTF: My end of the world grocery list

Uh-oh. The teevee says the poop has hit the oscillator! You have one chance to hit the Sooper Saver before the starving, rioting hoards clean it out. What to do?

My SHTF Shopping List gets you started.

Here we go!

Take the largest vehicle you own, bring all the cash you have on hand. Don't forget, if the banks are still running and the ATM machines are up, bring a credit card and debit card and use both first!

Once in the store, grab a cart (that's buggy for your foreigners and northerners).

Hit the baking aisle first. Grab flour, salt, sugar, cooking oil, yeast, corn meal, powdered milk and Crisco.

Head for the diet or health section. Grab the biggest containers of protein powder (you know for weight lifters) they have.

"Do you really have enough food stocked when the SHTF?"

Head for the pharmacy. Get aspirin, cold/flu remedies, children's medicines and vitamins, stomach remedies (especially diarrhea) and all the first aid supplies you see.

Head for hardware. Take all of the following: kitchen matches, cooking fuel, batteries.

Your cart should be full. Pay, load car, come back.

Go to paper products. Toilet paper - full cart. Get another cart and fill with bottled water. Every load after this get one case or two of water and put on bottom of cart.

Pay, come back.

Paper products again. Paper towels. Cleaning products - bleach, lysol, any other disinfectant products. Water filters if they have them.

Go to canned food aisle. Regular size cans of soups first. Cases of them if available. Get coffee, coco and tea.

Pay and come back.

Go to dry food aisle. Rice, beans, instant potatoes, pasta. The biggest bags.

Go to canned goods again. Now you can grab those cans of meat you wanted when you first came in.

Pay and load. Come back.

More canned food if time. Go to baby section if applicable or not. Get powdered formula. Get diapers. Great trade good.

Pay, load and drive away if the mobs are on top of you.

Avoid - booze, tobacco, produce, ice, DVD's, books, sodas.

Your list may vary, but start with the basics and make your way up to treats.
