Preparing For Economic Collapse
PREPARING FOR WHAT MAY HAPPEN DURING AN ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
#1 Food Shortages Can Happen
You cannot be sure that supermarkets or corner stores will remain open or have their shelves stocked. How much food do you have stored? How long will it last? Do you have a garden or any food growing? Think about vegetables, herbs and fruit. Some fruit is easy to grow-for example: Citrus such as lemons for making drinks, or fejoas.
#2 Medicine may becomes Scarce During An Economic Collapse
Do you have a basic medical kit on hand? Does it have sticking plasters, bandages, Pain killers etc. Also any needed prescription medicine etc should be kept in 3-4 month supply.
#3 When An Economy Collapses, So Might The Power Grid!
If the power grid goes down for a long period or is down intermittently how will you cook, light your home or stay warm? What plans do you haver in place to cover this?
#4 During An Economic Collapse You Cannot Even Take Water For Granted
Do you have a store of water, and if so how much? If water becomes scare ( ie if power grid down) do you have a means of purifying water? See our videos on D-I-Y water filters.
#5 During An Economic Crisis Your Credit Cards And Debit Cards May Stop Working
If it happens that you cannot get money from ATM machines, and bank accounts are frozen, do you have plans in place to cover this? Eg: Cash on hand, gold or silver etc
#6 Crime, Rioting And Looting Become Commonplace During An Economic Collapse
If this occurs, how will protect yourself, your family, your assets?
#7 During A Financial Collapse Many People Will Start Bartering
Do you have anything that you could use as bartering items? Think about what people may want or need during a time of crisis, and figure out what you could kept stashed away as potential bartering items and goods.
#8 Your Currency May Rapidly Lose Value During An Economic Crisis
If this happens, then gold and silver will be the true money that is left standing. This is why we believe you should have at least some of your assets stored in the form of precious metals!
#9 You Cannot Be Sure Of Continuous Employment Or Ongoing Business
If you lose your job, or if business becomes slow, do you have any alternative ways of making money, or doing business?
#10 The Government Will Not Save You
If the SHTF it will affect Governments and their ability to give “handouts” and help you – so be prepared to have to survive without their assistance!
Additional Thoughts: Try to minimize and payoff your debts. Don’t waste money on unnecessary luxuries. Think of gold and silver as “Real Money” that will survive if other currencies fail. It could be a good idea to try and get ahead on your house Rent or mortgage payments.November 16, 2017 at 10:32 am #4130
Very good and timely reminder.
Always good to make sure you have plenty of toilet paper for personal use and also to barter, this was one of the items that became a sought after luxury during the Balkan crisis in the 1990’s, coffee was another item that people would have given anything to have during this time.

Tony, what is/are fejoas? Under item #1 you state “Citrus such as lemons for making drinks, or fejoas.”
Just curious as I’ve never heard of this!November 18, 2017 at 5:17 pm #4274
The fruit, maturing in autumn, is green, ellipsoid, and about the size of a chicken egg. It has a sweet, aromatic flavour, which tastes like pineapple, apple and mint. The flesh is juicy and is divided into a clear, gelatinous seed pulp and a firmer, slightly granular, opaque flesh nearer the skin. The fruit falls to the ground when ripe and at its fullest flavour, but it may be picked from the tree prior to falling to prevent bruising.
The fruit pulp resembles the closely related guava, having a gritty texture. The feijoa pulp is used in some natural cosmetic products as an exfoliant. Feijoa fruit has a distinctive, potent smell that resembles that of a fine perfume. The aroma is due to the ester methyl benzoate and related compounds that exist in the fruit.November 18, 2017 at 5:18 pm #4275November 18, 2017 at 5:31 pm #4277
They sound delicious!
Isn’t it fascinating how we tend to think we’ve heard of everything and if it isn’t local to us, it doesn’t exist. LOL! Always something to learn. 🙂
