Items that could be used for bartaring after TSHTF
I'll start, food is always great, but what if you don't have enough to barter with? There are other things that will be worth their weight in gold after TSHTF.

1. Soap and deodorants
2. blankets and clothing
3. Medicines (otc) like ibuprofin and asperin
4. toothpaste, toothbrushes
5. SOCK SOCKS SOCKS


If anyone has more to add, I welcome it. These items will be a form of currency if things go bad.

You are correct in placing amphetamines at the top of the list.

I would put high-proof ethanol next, then antibiotics.

The amphetamines are more or less wonderdrugs, and this is the shit you will want when things get really bad.

Amphetamines work as anti-depressants, painkillers, blood-thinners and an anti-inflammatory. Plus they will allow you to max out your physical capabilities if needed. Even if your party is hungry, tired, and cold, a little shot of speed will instantly boost moral and physical ability. Dextroamphetamine sulfate ie Dexedrine, is what you want. You will be able to trade this shit for anything, you can now anyway and it will only be more valuable after things go south.

Re: Items that could be used for bartaring after TSHTF
Iodized salt is the cheapest supply to store for barter and will be needed by everyone to preserve food. Unless people live near the ocean, there's little chance of harvesting it without mining.

Other items are not as useful or needed only under medical conditions. Not everyone can afford (at this late stage of the game)to prepare, and so you must prioritize how you spend money for bartering versus food supplies for your family. You always must have a barter supply as trade will be an essential aspect of post-collapse situations.

"Comfort" items, snacks, alcohol, tobbaco, and CHOCOLATE!

Particularly Hershe's plain chocolate bars. They virtually have no expiration date (which are 90% bullshit anyway)

Chocolate will however turn somewhat whitish when exposed to moisture.

If you pack a dozen Hershe bars in an air tight can, they'll still be good 25 years from now.

I bought ten pair of those cheap eyeglasses at Ace hardware for a dollar each on sale. They are very generic and magnify X1.5 or X2.0. I bought them with the idea that they would certainly be better than nothing and at that price they will be great for barter.

Get some bottles of fish antibiotics - pretty inexpensive to purchase, no prescription needed, but will be in very high demand after TSHTF. [link to www.survivalblog.com]

Did you know aloe vera can be grown from seed? It might make a sort of cottage industry to start aloe plants for trade or sale. Aloe vera is a kind of miracle plant that helps with any skin problem whatsoever and helps heal burns. It would be a cherished item for preppers. [link to gardenofeaden.blogspot.com]

A useful skill set is handy. Learn about reflux still design and operation. If you can run a batch of 80% alcohol you youself are a comodoty. Or, you can make alcohol for barter.

Its also a great medicinal item for cuts and scratches, and if your bored, you have entertainment.
