Did you know you can buy canned goods at the Dollar Store I just picked up 10 cans of chilli for five bucks 2 for a dollar 10 pounds of Pinto beans $1 for a 2 pound bag I also picked up a few bottles of hand sanitizer, band aids, gauze, Hydrogen Peroxide, Alcohol, Nitrile Gloves, a six-pack of Disposable lighters, a few boxes kitchen matches and a couple of other odds and ends. I got out of there for less than a hundred bucks.
Just walk the aisles in a dollar store and see what you can find you will be amazed at the number of items that you can use my wife and I try to make a trip into one of these stores 2 or 3 times a month inventory is constantly changing and you can find some great deals.
also Wal-Mart and Costco are good places if your going to buy in quantity but for items like first aid supplies and personal hygiene check out the Dollar Store.
Here is a list of items I look for when shopping the dollar stores
Gloves, socks, Duct Tape, Shampoo, Soap, Vitamins, Clippers, Razor, Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Floss, Comb/Brush, Hand Sanitizer, Feminine Products, Alcohol and Hydrogen Peroxide, Bandages, Latex Gloves, Nitrile Gloves, Batteries, Lighters, Matches, Canned goods, Dry good like rice and beans. This is only a small list of items, walk the aisles and see what you can find then let us know we will post it as an update to this post.
We will be posting a more comprehensive list of items you will need for your survival in an upcoming post.
