  1. Great List! I would add 10 gals of gas past a full tank if you have an auto.. I like this also as a limit list! This is the least you should keep on hand and if you fall below it is time to go lookin for stuff..

  2. Reblogged this on blogsavage and commented:
    Just a quick reblog from Palmetto Prepper. I think this is a great list, not overwhelming and a good limit list to never fall below if you are a big time prepper. When you think in these minimums you will know when to start looking for supplies before it gets too desperate. I am adding this list to my prep book!
