Top 50 Things to Disappear

Here’s a list of the top 50 things that might disappear first from store shelves during an emergency, disaster, or SHTF.


 
This list from Tom over at CampingSurvival.com is based on comments received from his fans and readers. Being a sponsor of Modern Survival Blog, I thought it interesting to have a look.

The list is separated in categories and are things that might be first to run out when people start to panic (not necessarily the things that YOU as a prepper believe to be the important things, but rather the things that others might buy first).

It’s always interesting to read lists. They sometimes inspire ideas.
