100 things that disappear first in a crisis

When you’re going through a terrible event that can happen in times of war – the death of relatives and friends, hunger and malnutrition, the never-ending cold and frost, fear, sniper attacks – some tips can be helpful.

  • Making reservations is useful, but you never know how long problems will last, so stay near renewable sources of food.
  • To live near a well with a hand pump is like being in the Garden of Eden.
  • After a while, even gold can lose its luster. But in times of war, there is no such luxury as toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than that of gold.
  • If you have to give up comfort, give up electricity. It’s the one that’s the easiest to do without. (Unless you live in a very pleasant climate and you do not need to warm up)
  •  Canned food is fantastic, especially if it tastes great unheated. One of the best preserves to stock is the gravy sauce, it makes a lot of the dry foods edible that are found in time of war. It only needs a little heat to “warm up” it does not need to be cooked. Plus, it’s cheap, especially if you buy it wholesale.
  • Bring books . Those who need an “escape”, things such as novels or riddle stories, become valuable as the war progresses. Surely, it’s good to have a lot of survival guides, but you’ll find out how to cope in most cases anyway. Believe me, you will have a lot of time to waste.
  • The feeling of being human can disappear very quickly . I can not tell you how many people I knew who would have exchanged a much needed meal for a little toothpaste, lipstick, soap or perfume . It doesn’t have much use to you if you lose your life. These things cheer up like nothing else.
  • Slow burning candles, and matches, a lot of matches.

Apart from that, Crises are often unpredictable and can leave us feeling overwhelmed and uncertain. In the face of a crisis, it can be difficult to prioritize our needs and to know what to focus on first.

To help you prepare, this blog post will explore 100 things that tend to disappear first in a crisis. By understanding what items and resources may not be available during times of turmoil, you can better plan ahead and anticipate your needs.
