Consumable Supplies: Level-1 Prepping & Preparedness
Consumable Supplies: Level-1 Prepping & Preparedness by Ken Jorgustin – Modern Survival Blog
Consumable Supplies (one of the topics of Level-1 Prepping & Preparedness) are items which are intended to be bought, used, and then replaced.
With regards to preparedness it is simply a matter of stocking up on a number of specific items for your convenience and to ensure that you won’t run out during a period of disruption.
Note: Level-1 preparedness is being prepared for a disruption that may last hours, days, or even up to one week. Most all “typical” disruptions will fit into this category and time frame. Surprisingly though, most people are not adequately prepared even for Level-1. Don’t let that be you…
STOCK UP ON CONSUMABLE SUPPLIES
This really is a short list, given that we’re talking the very basics. Consumable supplies do not include food and water. Instead, those items are discussed here:
TOILET PAPER (TP)
Did you know that 83% of people polled say that having at least 2 rolls of TP per person per week will cover (wipe) all of their needs?
Most preppers are careful to have plenty of this particular consumable supply in their inventory! Sounds like a reasonable priority to me…
If you’re a newbie prepper, say a family of four, do you have at least 8 rolls on the shelf? You might, but I’m just saying having a few cases on hand is one less thing to worry about.
Here are some fun facts from our resident expert on the subject:
PAPER PLATES – CUPS – PLASTIC UTENSILS
If the power is out and ordinary food prep isn’t quite so easy, for example (without electricity), an easy way to deal with serving is to use paper plates & cups, and plastic utensils.
