100 Items That Disappear First in a Disaster

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This list has circulated around the ‘net for years. It has been posted, torn apart, praised, and ridiculed many times. Hey – why not here. My opinion? Great list of things to stock up on. Many are common household items while others are not.

Take a gander. Let’s hear your opinions and what additions should be added to the list.

      A pair or two of coveralls with the men’s clothing #45 would not be amiss. Full aprons for women to save from staining clothing. Extra lace-up oxford shoes and size up clothing for growing children.

    • somethgblue

      Number one survival item left off the list is a fire starter kit, cuz when your matches and lighters run out being able to start a fire using your brain and a little common sense will go a looooonnnng way, baby!

      Why would anyone buy a dog, hell you’ll be eating soon anyway!

      • edoyle7

        Get a small dog, a yapper. They sleep light and bark like hell so you can get a nap and they don’t eat much.
