    4. Socks
    5 long underwear (turning down the heat this winter)
    6 two new pair of jeans (as the ones I have now are getting worn out) .
    7 seeds
    Most every thing else I have stocked already using coupons and getting low cost.
    Which is
    Cleaning supplies
    and HBA
    If we were talking preparing for an emergency I would add the following items to my list
    8 Batteries
    9 lamp oil/ wicks
    10 First aid supplies
    11 weather radio
    I have got several things on this list and some thing on your lists as well since this orig post. SO here is my up dated list of things I still need to get.
    1. weather radio
    2. more canning jars and lids
    3. mylar bags/Oxygen Absorbers
    4. a cheap walmart solar battery charger (they are yard lights that use AA batteries and they are in the solar charger) Under $30
    5. more lamp oil (not sure how much to have on hand already going up in price and down in size)
    6. More OTC Medicine
    7. disposable dishes (paper plates,bowls,plastic ware)
    These last two are wants but the prices keep me at bay would love to find a cheap supplier
    8. A grain grinder (cheaper flour)
    9. A larger food dehydrator

    As an optician--I would recommend purchasing several pairs of readers from 1.25d up to 4d. Do you remember the Twilight Zone where Burgess Meredith kept being nagged by his wife and wished he could be alone with his books.....poof he was the only one alive on earth, in a library but he broke his glasses!

    Just ran across this thread again and was wondering the same thing as Mr. Fixit, given our current situation. I did pretty well. I could use a few more batteries, but otherwise, I hit my mark.
