It’s the Little Things That Matter: 100 Survival Items To Help Keep A Sense of Normality and Sanity After the Collapse

“Enjoy the little things, for some day you may look back and realize they were the big things” – Robert Brault

Bullets…check.  Beans…check.  Band Aids…check.  The list goes on and on sometimes doesn’t it?  As preppers, we all are stockpiling the items and supplies that we plan on needing if and when it hits the fans.  We all need to make sure we can eat, drink, protect ourselves from the elements and defend what needs to be defended.  However, today I found myself thinking of things that weren’t on my “Need in order to survive” list.  Little things that we all take for granted today, but someday, we may look back and think how simple it would have been to pick up a couple of those items when they are no longer on a store shelf near you.

Don’t get me wrong, the “Need in order to survive” list is far more important than this one because that is priority number one.  But ask yourself, what is priority number two?  I would call this the luxury list.  These are things that people don’t necessarily need, but will help to keep a sense of normality and sanity when possibly cut off from our instantly able to be gratified society.  Things like chocolate.  Many preppers stock it because of its shelf life.  I stock it because it will lift the spirits of those who will be close to me.  It’s a little thing now with shelves stocked in the local big box, but one year after the collapse, it will be a big thing!!
