MAD RUSH SHOPPING LIST IF THE SHTF



If the SHTF and you don't have everything you need, you can use this shopping list as a guide for the most important items you need to get if society is about to collapse.  Some of these items you might only be able to buy online prior, which makes it all the more important to prepare beforehand.  Make the dash out to stores ASAP as if your life depended on it, because it might.  These are listed in order of most important items first.  You would want these items if you are bugging out to the wilderness.  Clothing, medications, female, infant, and elderly items are not included, so adjust appropriately.
