SHTF: Real Last Minute End Of The World Grocery List

The SHTF.. Zombies are running in the streets.. Nuclear weapons have exploded..

So you have one last chance to hit the grocery stores and add to your stocks at home.

Hopefully, you already have a multi-month supply of food on hand. There is no way one trip to Kroger or Safeway, (along with everyone else) is going to leave you with enough to survive the coming months and years.

Here are some things to grab while the getting is good and everyone else is grabbing beer, cigarettes, candy and liquor.

Food preservation -
Canning jars
Canning rings and lids
Canning salt
Salt, kosher, regular, rock and sea salt

Paper products -
Paper towels
Paper napkins
Paper plates
Toilet paper
Feminine products

Cleaning supplies -
Lysol (spray)
Mr. Clean, Pine sol or similar type product
Mop heads
Tub and tile cleaner

Cooking oil and lard -
Vegetable oil
Crisco or similar type product
Olive oil (often overlooked in the ethnic food sections)
Pam or other cooking spray

Food packaging -
Zip lock bags
Aluminum foil
Plastic wrap
Plastic bags
Food saver bags

Medical -
OTC cold remedies
Stomach and digestion medicine
Herbal supplements
Bandages, first aid supplies
Insect repellent
Rubbing alcohol
Hydrogen peroxide

House and home -
Mouse and rat traps
Insect spray
Liquid plumber

Fuel and lighting -
Matches and lighters
Camp fuel (if available)
Charcoal (use first, does not last long).
Lamp oil (citronella for instance)
Batteries (will be going fast and first, check the check out aisles).
Flashlights (same as batteries but necessary).

Fresh Fruit and Vegetables -
Potatoes, onions, carrots, shallots, turnips, beets and any other root vegetable lasts a very long time - take what is left.
Apples and oranges if available

Cooking supplies -
Baking powder
Baking soda (also a cleaner)
Flour (who is going to loot flour?)
Dehydrated egg whites
Powdered milk
Baking mixes including corn bread, bisquick and pancake mix

Miscellaneous -
Protein powder
Protein bars
Weight loss drinks (full of protein)
Bullion cubes
Energy drinks
Tea bags

Most of the items on this list are "boring" to the average panicked looter. Remember, they will be grabbing comfort foods (soda, sweets), canned goods and expensive vices (liquor, beer, cigarettes, cigars, ice (of all things!) and chocolate.

Take what is available and keep in mind non-traditional outlets for food like convenience stores, dollar stores and truck stops.

Stay safe and don't bring children or elderly along during these forays.

Good luck and get ready!

do you think it would be a good idea to hit the local REI, walmart or cabelas to get camping supplies that would prove useful? or would the stuff already be taken by others?

I would go to REI and get camping supplies now. Tents, lanterns, flashlights, etc don't have a shelf life so they can be purchased a little (of a lot if possible) and stored. Food is perishable. If conditions allow, this list is a reminder list for what to get if there is time for "One More Run" to the grocers.
