Just thought I'd start this to see if we can exchange ideas. Doubt we will really need it though.
firewood? is that one?
beer and wine and lots of it
maybe some t.p.
sheesh I dont know I will ask my folks what that had for Y2K they had their entire 2 car garage filled with stuff, us kids used it as a super market for months after nothing happened.
it was great, go to moms house, do laundry, and shop for supplys in the garage!
That is actually why we got chickens!!!!! Figured, if nothing else we would have plenty of eggs, and If we HAD to, chicken.

Kerosene lamps and of course kerosene.
Generator for pumping water......we have a well.
For me........COFFEE POT which I can use on the BF stove.
Maybe a Goat?
OK.....Tell me what I missed.
That t.p. reference is funny, when I was a kid my dad always said we were allowed 1 square of t.p. to use for each bathroom visit ! Ack this was the result of him growing up during the depression, which he never forgot, and was imprinted on him for the rest of his life. (and mine)
I learned about not wasting anything...but I'm normal, really, I buy 1000 sheet rolls of t.p. and don't complain that it's not super soft. (!?) Those rolls that boast softness are only 500 to 750 sheets to a roll, or something. talk about waste.
