We all know that the apocalypse is coming. The signs are everywhere, and no matter how much we deny it or try to ignore what’s happening in our world, the truth is unavoidable. So, now that you’ve accepted your inevitable fate of death by zombies or nuclear war or whatever other kind of destruction awaits us on the horizon, here are 10 tips from bonesaw for preparing yourself so when everything goes down in flames you’re not left behind wondering where it all went wrong.

1) Stock up on canned goods – Canned foods can last a long time before they go bad and provide a lot more nutritional value than their fresh counterparts. And if any natural disasters happen while you’re stocking up on food then at least you had the foresight to prepare for them.

 Stock up on canned goods – They’ll keep as long as somebody isn’t trying hard enough

to eat it all, or until there’s another disaster that makes your supplies run out of date too fast!

 Keep some dry goods with those canned ones just in case we have power outage after an earthquake but don’t forget what I said about power, because…

 NO FOOD WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

There will be a lot of people without access to supermarkets or even gas stations, and those who do have food won’t know if they can trust the quality or safety of it because we need authorities to issue recalls on stuff like spinach poisoning that’s gone out before.

So buy some dry goods – You’ll thank me later (unless you’re reading this in the future where I’m already dead) when there are massive riots over food shortages, which is entirely possible now that…

 WE CAN’T PRODUCE ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED OURSELVES!

Unless someone figures out how to make more productive use of our cropland than just growing corn for ethanol, or we find a way to stop climate change…

NO. WATER WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE:

There will be a lot of people without access to supermarkets or even gas stations, and those who do have water won’t know if they can trust its quality because authorities are already issuing recalls on stuff like spinach poisoning that’s gone out before.

NO. PEOPLE WON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY FOOD:

we can’t produce enough food to feed ourselves! Not if the grocery stores are looted, not if prices skyrocket due to a lack of supply or transportation capacity…

And prospects look grim when you factor in that people won’t have the money to buy food. Even well off folks aren’t immune from loss of income thanks to companies downsizing and unemployment rates skyrocketing. But even worse, there’ll be many more who don’t work at all because they’re unemployable–or too old, young or physically challenged for any jobs left out there (which is most). And their unemployment checks disappear.

The poorer you are, the less likely it is that you’ll be able to scrounge up enough money for groceries or other necessities…but this time around, there will be no safety net of unemployment benefits as more and more people fall out of work! If anything’s left after those folks take what they need from grocery store shelves, prices will skyrocket because supply doesn’t meet demand. And then we’re back where we started with food shortages–except now even richer people won’t have any expendable income to spend on buying food. It really could get ugly if things keep going in this direction without a major policy correction soon.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ULTIMATE RESOURCE OF SURVIVAL: WATER?

It’s not just a question of running out of water–i.e., when the faucet runs dry, or even before that point, when reservoirs and aquifers are tapped out–but how polluted our municipal supply will become as public works breakdown from lack of funding for maintenance. With elevated levels of lead in drinking water an already documented danger to children (and pregnant women), it’s also important to be mindful about exposure risks related to fracking…

This is where preppers come into play: they’ll have their own source of clean potable water stored up at home, so if things get really hairy with infrastructure shortages, they can keep themselves going until the city services start back up again.
