Some Of The First Preps To Disappear

first-items-to-disappear-from-store-shelves

Just prior (if warned), and during (and following) a regional (or wider) disaster, or SHTF, MANY items will disappear from store shelves by the mainstream population (IF they are able to purchase them).

Food items will be one of the first to go. However apart from that, for the sake of discussion, here are just a few of the many OTHER items that may disappear sooner than other things, given their importance or impact on daily living in today’s modern world.


 
In no particular order, excluding foods, here are a few items that I believe will disappear from store shelves (before some other items) when people realize that the disaster may last longer than they thought.

   

Alcohol, Cigarettes
Gasoline storage containers, Gasoline
Generators
Flashlights, Lanterns, Candles
Batteries
Camp stoves, Anything to cook with
Propane tanks, Coleman fuel, Charcoal briquettes
Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Tissues
Portable propane heaters (if during winter), Firewood
Matches and Lighters
Hygiene (Toothpaste, Soap, Shampoo, Shaving)
Diapers
Feminine hygiene products
Oil Lamps, Lamp Oil
Ice, Coolers

 
There are many other items which the mainstream may deem important enough to procure first – but I’m curious to hear your opinion of which things you think people will try to get. These things may or may not be what YOU would procure first…
