In no particular order I have found the following dissappear very fast:
batteries; candles; fresh milk; bread; fresh vegetables; fresh fruit; UHT and powdered milks; fresh meat; loo paper; gases (butane or LPG) and fuels; jerry cans;generators; dairy products and fresh products; frozen products; basic tinned products
I have a loo paper fetish so always make sure a have a whole pile of that and normally in an emergency we manage ok cos I am aware of the shortages and stockpile earlier
We found ourselves caught short with jerry cans earlier this year tho :blink:
We have that sort of thing covered. I agree on the toilet paper issue, I keep a good stock of that! I don’t think there is anything that we can not handle if we have to, we have been off the grid for 30 years or more, survived cyclone Tracey in 74 and lived over 20 years without power. But I do treasure those toilet rolls!
