With all the guns-ammo being sold, I reason that food and other supplies will be just as important if the SHTF. I have started collecting the essentials, but still have a long way to go. I found food grade 5 gal. bucket at Lowes, and there are lots of prepper sites that sell the sealable mylar bags to put in your food buckets, as well as water purifying urns.
Several important items to save are disposable butane lighters, and over the counter meds, including antibiotics, which could be a lifesaver, or used for bartering. I found that fish antibiotics are the same ones given to humans in many cases, and can be ordered from pet supply stores, without a prescription, and at a fraction of the cost of pharmacy brands. Google fish antibiotics for plenty of info. Also looking to buy fuel storage tanks. I'd appreciate input on other essential items to start saving.

Red bell preppers are my favorite. Green preppers give me heartburn.

I'm not a prepper. But I don't think those that are preppers are crazy, just prepared. Me, I believe an economical collapse is inevitable. I am not prepared for it though. That would make me...... Unprepared.
I always did my homework on the way to school.

Canned beans have a "use by date" but are then good & safe for many years after that its just that the original taste goes down some.

Not another Y2K...if you have it and they want it .You have a big target on your back.
You have to learn to survive off the land and utilize what resources you have.
Do your homework ..what is edible and what you can use for medicine ect.
