You may try and be prepared for everything if things go South at some point, but here are about 35+ things that you should have on hand RIGHT NOW, but probably don’t (at least some of them.) Almost everywhere mentions the basics (weapons, food, survival gear) but we wanted to cover some of the items that you may not have around, but are important to keep close by. We have grouped them into categories for you, so hopefully you can go home and check them off your list so you always have them stocked in the future.
