[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NDM1NzM3X0M2Q0E0QTZD] Luxury items for barter post-collapse If one can make ethanol, one can certainly make a lot of trades post-collapse. Of course that's common sense. An alternative, I think is perfume and cologne. Long-term after a collapse, these two items will be very rare. Taking a small portion (½ pint) of vodka and adding a few drops of common essential oils, one can make them. Excellent and inexpensive essential oils like bergamont, sandlewood, ylang ylang, orange, lemon, cedar, etc could be purchased for a small amount of money. If one could raise potatoes, then this could be distilled with less concern than producing ethanol and could be sold in small containers. This vodka could be made with far less worry about charcoal filtration or precise temperatures. Sweat doesn't ordinarily smell. What smells in body odor is bacteria. One way to eliminate this bacteria is apple cider vinegar. People who can make it, can sell it for this purpose as well as the more practical use of pickling vegetables. Likewise a way to naturally take care of this is to soak pine needles in water and apply this lightly under the arms. Still that will be common. Being able to “court” people again by smelling nice will be rare. http://www.pioneerthinking.com/beauty/perfume-cologne/ [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
