Inflation is here to stay. The Fed has not brought it under control and cannot without crashing the economy This catch-22 means the government will continue to use the insidious “tax” of inflation for potentially years. Today compares to the early 70’s. There is no Paul Volcker to rescue us this time.
The FED, of course, is neither American
Nor friend to America….
Most Hostile occupying force.
I believe the main thing the concentrate on is that which does not require energy or the grid. With war on the horizon there’s a good chance that the grid is going to go down, so the best thing to concentrate on is food, medical supplies, ammunition and weapons. Just go ahead and assume that there’s going to be no power, no grid, and no water coming out of the tap. And if you have a power generator invest in one that is dual fuel, or gas powered. Then concentrate on getting as many propane tanks filled as possible. Switch over all light appliances to led to save energy and invest in gas powered grills if you haven’t already.
That’s natural gas powered. Sorry.
Tom, if the Grid fails for an extended duration, sooner or later we will run out of refined fuels, including liquid petroleum fuels, propane and LP gas. I have LP gas piped into my home, but as a short-term precaution, I have six 5-gallon propane bottles as “back up” but realize if the Grid goes down, I expect the LP gas to stop flowing, and will not be able to get more propane or liquid fuels. We would truly be left “on our own”.
Sounds like you are proposing being self sufficient, sounds like a good plan to me. I agree with concentrating on the essentials, then plan on having the tools/ materials to repair things when the store shelves go empty. When the price of every thing goes up it just means the dollars I put away during my working years aren’t worth a hill of beans now.
Electricity is generated by fossil fuels! The idea of having electric tool, appliances, cars etc to “save on fossil fuels” is ludicrous, shows lack of information and misdirection of the mostly ignorant public. Our small amounts of wind farms and hydroelectric are insignificant in this country. With the depletion of water levels in reservoirs, the hydroelectric will disappear altogether. When the Hoover stops producing, all those CA electric cars will stop moving. Oops…..
I thought exactly the same thing!! And besides, that electric car is going to be a stone on the road when the grid goes down anyway.
Booze. I’m not a drinker but I do stockpile booze. It has many uses and will be great for trade.
I agree with having some stuff to trade. The problem is doing it securely. Keeping people from following you home would be a critical factor.
whether for drinkin or trading, Home-brewing equipment and fixin’s, and same for wine making equipment. things like yeasts, malts, hops, sugar, etc….
Could even look into still … for distilled water and medicines 🙂
Obviously, anything that produces and reproduces…. garden seeds, nut and fruit trees, berry bushes, small livestock , etc… will be a wise investment.
Jason Hansen has an excellent youtube on why you don’t want to barter booze (or firearms or tobacco or drugs). Basically, do you really want to trade with an addict who will do anything to satisfy his/her cravings? Once they know you have it, they’ll come for you one way or the other.
I think you can do it… but NEVER go to their home or allow them to come to yours.
Cigars and cigarettes too.
Everything is going UP (think WAY UP) in southern Yurrope, too. My friends in “them colonies yonder” (and pls don’t take this the wrong way) are not alone.
Some items are still hard to come by, if at all.
Has anyone seen the price of an All American pressure cooker on Mamazon lately??
(for example). Nuts.
I think Mrs. Paterson gives some really good ideas here.
Then again, I would not attempt to barter alcohol, cigarrettes or arms ´n ammo, either…
Bartering can and will be dangerous, IMHO.
I have been on this site for several years learning what I can. I have been prepping for a couple of years with food, water I even have a pump for my well in case of no power and have tried it out. Been stocking everything I can think of.
Tried talking to some of my children they just can’t get it in their minds such as shtf situations.
The only thing I really hate is y wife of 48 years has recently had to go on dialysis. I am completely stumped on what I can do in case we have a survival situation crisis on what to do. Without dialysis she wouldn’t have long to live and to tell the truth I don’t believe I could keep going..
Any ideas would be more than appreciated. Worried sick
You could try to save up to buy a dialysis machine for your home, but they are very expensive.
Rick, Build your faith with your savor, the Lord Jesus Christ and He will instruct, guide, lead and take care of you…put your worries aside; when you have done all that you can do, the Lord will take up the slack and take care of the rest. God bless

once your trained you never forget , you dont accept the social lies , networks of propaganda and the free of the left who want to control, make you stupid, into a sloth and easy to conquer
stand up , prepare, stay alert , never accept the liars networks of TV , Radio , and internet liars fact checkers who trained in the colledges just do what they are trained to do , tell more lies
prepare, stand firm , dont accept lies , and call out liars , and the liars networks
I see a lot of different opinions about bartering and/or trading after a SHTF situation, and I have stocked up some with some things that might be useful for trading if needed, BUT….
Situational Awareness must always be maintained 100% at all times – no exceptions. If you fail at Situational Awareness, you fail at protecting yourself and anyone else that might be affected by your lapse.
I might consider trading with people I trust, and I mean really TRUST, such as trading food for medicinal supplies, ammo for crafted items like clothing or leather-goods, especially gloves and footwear, even offering or accepting skilled labor/professional services as a trade item, and so on, but I do expect to remain as self-reliant as I can manage.
Even those people you really “trust” can and probably will turn on you. Especially in a stressful situation like in SHTF. We are not going to be able to trust even our closest friends.
back to the topic, skyrocketing prices!!! This is in part caused by JoeBama’s economic policies designed to destroy USA’s self-reliance from within. He started destroying the USA on the first day of his term, and has continued ever since, while also using the Justice Department as his modern “Gestapo” to intimidate and enforce his personal socialist/communist, One-World-Order agenda upon us “deplorable peasants”.
