Local Kroger:

1. Canned foods (we don't do the eat what store/store what eat thing well)

2. Dog food (even though it wouldn't be their usual)

3. Gas: Fill up red plastic gas cans at with fuel reward points, also top off vehicle.

Whatever else sounds like a good idea. Maybe toilet paper/paper towels, maybe garbage bags, maybe fruit, maybe milk, depends on the event, what we expect, and what we have.

Milk
We have a farm fresh source.

Bread

We bake our own,we ain't bought from a store in years.
Meat

Covered,and then some.
Veggies

Garden going in after the last threat of a frost goes by
Fruit

Cheese

Same as milk,be for around for a long time.
Yogurt
Not our thing,not prep wise anyway.

Bucket of fried chicken
Couldn't resist,could ya.

Ice if you can't produce it fast enough.
We can,just ta fill freezers as needed.

1) Several of 5 gallon gas tanks (it is a barter item if I could fill it with diesel to get weapons n ammo or high-end valuable items)
2) Veggie seeds (to trade for some valuable things I need)
3) 1 set of wrenches and hand tools (to make several modifications out of things for a trade. I also could do a repair for a trade)
4) Wood spiltter ax 7 lbs (keep ourselves warm and to sell woods)
5) Two long crowbar (to break things down)
6) Heavy duty ropes (multi-purpose ropes)

I will need those things to thrive in SHTF. I don't want to be a dependent in the SHTF.

I guess the question is...why don't you have them now?

I think most items on a list like this are perishable, otherwise they would already have been acquired.

My question also. I would think your last-minute run would concentrate on the perishables.

Thanks to this exercise I'm totally reorganizing my original list. Now:

1 Gasoline
2 Ice
3 Soda - CokeZero
4 Bread
5 Peanut Butter
6 Batteries, maybe, if time permits. Have lots of Eneloops.

Water left the list because there’s 120 gallons at home, and I don’t want to be schlepping heavy water around at the last minute. Cola instead. Bleach is gone, going to use Calcium Hypochlorite instead.

TALLY so far, by number of mentions:

1. Gasoline - 7 mentions
2. Batteries - 6 mentions
3. Vegetables - 4 mentions
4. Toilet paper - 4 mentions

All the following got 3 mentions so far:

Water
Bread
Ice
Alcohol
Soda

--------

I was surprised at toilet paper & alcohol making top mentions -- these can both be stocked. But if they're not, that indicates they'd make excellent barter items. Batteries is borderline, if people were meaning AA and AAA, since LSD NiMH rechargeables (Eneloops, etc.) can be stocked.

My first actual shopping actions (if time & situation allow) are the following:

1. GASOLINE
2. CASH x MAX ATM WITHDRAWAL
3. AMMUNITION (edited to caveat:ADDITIONAL)

Once I've accomplished the above, and if the opportunity to shop a grocery store exists:

My priority FOOD items are soon-to-be-scarce things (mostly high calorie fat or protein) that keep without electricity:

1. COOKING OIL
2. SPAM
3. EGGS
4. BUTTER
5. CRISCO
6. SUMMER SAUSAGE

7. VELVEETA PROCESSED CHEESE
8. PEPPERONI
9. TUNA
10. CANNED CORNED BEEF
11. SALTINE CRACKERS
12. PEANUT BUTTER
13. CHOCOLATE
14. HONEY
15. HARD BLOCK/WHEEL CHEESE
16. WASA CRISP CRACKERS
17. DRIED PASTA MIXES (BAG/BOX MEALS)
18. ROASTED NUTS (ANY)
19. DAK CANNED HAM
20. NUTELLA HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE SPREAD (VERY HIGH CALORIE)
21. CANNED ROAST BEEF
22. CANNED CHICKEN
23. CANNED SOUP
24. CANNED STEW
25. CORN NUTS (VERY HIGH CALORIE)

Sorry...I can't keep a list to just six items unless it's a 6-pack of beer.

Good list, but is this your last-second list? By way of feedback, this would mean you'd need to go to four stores to get your first four items...unless they're now selling ammo at Arco stations or banks.

Why not stock cash and ammo now? Ditto some of the long-shelf items on your list, such as #17 pasta and #14 Honey, which is perhaps the longest shelf-life food known to mankind, having been found in ancient Egyptian tombs and still being edible.

Otherwise, a thoughtful, ordered list...strong work.

Out of curiosity, how long do eggs last w/o refrigeration?

I think an S/Per listing ammunition at the top of a "last second" list is doing something wrong.

As much green produce as I could eat before it spoils. (1 months?)
Couple extra sacks of rice…5, 10 lb bags
Hefty bags
Bleach
TP
Extra bottled water
case of black beans
Fillup the vehicle and jerry jugs.

See if there's a time to grab a couple of fresh baked pizza at the dominoes. might not have any of that for awhile...

If I KNEW "it" was coming:

#1 Gas
#2 Fresh bleach, apparently...
#3 Batteries
#4 Canned food - unusual stuff NOT usually on my shelves (i.e.; NOT more ravioli)
#5 Seasonal meds (allergy meds, sunscreen, etc...)
#6 More of appropriate gear for the specific SHTF (no electric - Propane, Rain - plastic sheets, etc...)

Bolster, you might want to watch episode 2 or 3 of Doomsday preppers. The lady used mineral oil on the outside or eggs and they kept for 8 or 9 months. She didn't explain the entire process though, so there may be more to it.

Honestly...Like you, I don't actually NEED anything at the last minute.

However...

Like many folks, I can't safely store as much extra gasoline as I'd like due to fire hazard and insurance requirements. Given last minute warning of impending events and assuming safe conditions, I will fill stockpiled empty containers with fuel. My only actual priority.

Quote:
I think an S/Per listing ammunition at the top of a "last second" list is doing something wrong.
I can exercise the option to pickup additional when I get fuel and cash. All my points of purchase are co-located and nearby. So...Why not? Too much ain't enough.

The OP's question was designed to come up with suggestions he hadn't already thought of. It's a good mental exercise. If I choose to wade into a grocery store a few steps ahead of the panicked herd...I'm damn sure not limited to 6 types of items.

In point of fact, I already maintain a one page, prioritized Speed Shopping List of about 50 items. I keep printed copies at home and in my vehicles. Whomever can safely make it to a store first...starts hitting that list (or the priority section of it). It's a drill.

There is nothing on that list that I don't already have (except for the spare fuel). It's just a checklist to top off on pre-planned items.

I'm not going to fight my way into the super-store (ala Adrian's Undead Diary) if things have already descended into anarchy. But if I can beat the rush...

This ain't my first Prepper rodeo...

seems like the OP had a goal of making you think about what you were short on, at least thats how i took it.

as far as eggs go, iirc the oil, vaseline or butter coatings only work on fresh eggs that havent been cooled already. you can also break them, scramble them and freeze them into ice cube trays and then bagged after frozen. or seperate the whites and yolks but the yolks need to be salted to let them freeze and not gel. another option is to scramble and cook them, then dehydrate and powder them. store like any other powdered eggs.

That's the altruistic view. The OP (me) was hoping to assemble a better "last minute list" with the help of the S/P intelligencia. Good suggestions and I'm very pleased with the thread. Made me think differently about last minute preps, and is making me stock up on a few items I hadn't thought to earlier.

One "aha" moment was realizing the mini-marts at the gas stations actually do serve a purpose. Normally I avoid them, but they'd be the shizzle for a last-minute run if you got there before the hoards descended. They stock most the stuff at the top of the list (in small quantities, admittedly) minus the vegetables. Costco/Wal-Mart/Sam'sClub might actually be places to avoid, last minute?

Any you guys have stories of what Costco/Wal-Mart/Sam'sClub/HomeDepot is like, last minute? Pretty nasty I imagine?

gasoline, water, canned goods, full propane tanks, ply wood (for windows and doors, and to create choke points), medicinal supplies.

i've already got good food storage, but one last trip to top everything off sure wouldn't hurt.

Gasoline. Lots of gasoline.

Candles and other long duration, limited maintenance lighting source. Maybe more cyalume sticks if they have it.

Spam. Lots of canned meats with long shelf lives. Canned soups. Canned fruits. Just canned fruits in general. (Good thing I already have a can opener so I don't take up a space for that item)

Water. Never get enough water.

Cigarettes. Helps sooth the soul like alcohol without the debilitating effects.

Propane. For cooking.
