Surviving the Hard Times

Well folks, I hate to be the bearer of bad news. However, I don’t see any improvement in the US economy anytime soon. I’m sure it will happen eventually but I just don’t know when. So what can you do to help yourself in these hard times?

Actions to take

  • Reduce your living expenses
  • Lower your expectations of what the government will provide.
  • Find creative ways to make some extra money.
  • Do odd jobs for people.
  • Start your own small business; but it has to be low-cost and low-risk.
  • Put off large expenditures until things get better.
  • Get what you want by exchanging favors with people you know.
  • Find ways to enjoy life that cost little or no money.
  • Spend time with those people you will miss when they are gone.
  • Face your problems and find ways to solve them.
  • Increase your courage, motivation, and self-confidence.
  • Learn bartering methods. (Paper money may become worthless or difficult to obtain.)
  • Take control of your life.

Things to store

Perhaps you should stock up on some essential supplies with a long shelf life. You probably want an emergency kit and/or a first aid kit. Extra clothing, sleeping bags or blankets, and a tent might come in handy.

You might even want to buy some trading goods. Here are some examples:

  • aspirin and vitamin tablets
  • assorted knives
  • baby supplies
  • cigarettes and matches
  • cooking and eating utensils
  • cooking oil
  • energy bars
  • flashlight and batteries
  • food (canned and dry)
  • guns and ammo
  • hand tools
  • hatchet
  • liquor (not the expensive kind)
  • paper cups and plates
  • paper towels
  • personal grooming and hygiene articles
  • pet supplies
  • plastic containers
  • playing cards
  • pots and pans
  • reading material
  • soap (for washing clothes, dishes, and people)
  • survival handbook
  • Swiss Army knife
  • toilet paper (lots of it)
  • towels and wash cloths
  • water purification tablets or liquid chlorine bleach
