    From a Sarajevo War Survivor:
    Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war - death of parents and
    friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks.

    1. Stockpiling helps. but you never no how long trouble will last, so locate
    near renewable food sources.
    2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.
    3. After awhile, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war
    quite like toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than gold's.
    4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity - it's the easiest to
    do without (unless you're in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)
    5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without
    heating. One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy - it makes a lot of
    the dry unappetizing things you find to eat in war somewhat edible. Only needs
    enough heat to "warm", not to cook. It's cheap too, especially if you buy it in
    6. Bring some books - escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more
    valuable as the war continues. Sure, it's great to have a lot of survival
    guides, but you'll figure most of that out on your own anyway - trust me, you'll
    have a lot of time on your hands.
    7. The feeling that you're human can fade pretty fast. I can't tell you how many
    people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of
    toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in fighting if you have to
    lose your humanity. These things are morale-builders like nothing else.
    8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches

    No list is one size fits all. What you'll need depends on your own unique needs and situation, and also what emergency you're preparing for. Lists can give you ideas but it does not make sense to rush out and buy everything on someone else's list without first determining what makes sense for you personally.

    Great list! I am always interested in what other people stock and I have had help in determining our needs with input from others.My DH has a friend who thinks he MUST stockpile Crisco. It's his fixation for some reason and he is always telling DH to pick some up so food can be fried. My husband told me that he didn't have the heart to tell him that I haven't let him have Crisco or fried foods in years and even a calamity is unlikely to change that. Hee! Hee!( a sense of humor- priceless!!)

    I found the Sarajevo War Survivor's list very intriguing. I think #7 is the most fascinating of all.

    Well I didn't see it either, but maybe they thought that was a given, I dont know. Some other things no on the list would be:

    Gun cleaning kit

    Reloading equipment, bullets and powder

    Prescription meds, ( just for you Frug)

    Physicians desk reference

    Automotive oil, grease, and lubricants in general

    Emergency 2 way radios, ham, CB, FRS walkie talkies etc

    Emergency weather radio

    Short wave receiver to get world news

    Common spare parts for your favorite BOV

    The most important thing, people you trust!
