This discussion topic is important because a lot of the things we prep are not things we use day to day. Yes, it would be a very different way of life, surviving in a post-apocalyptic society but you would need to do more than survive. You would need to thrive. How many of us are saving our old glasses and have them in our go-bags? How many of us are considering vital medications that you or a family member are using. What about infants? They have a big list of things to make their care easier. Thinking about these things as well as the essential food, water, tools, warmth, etc. that you will need is vital to not only surviving but thriving.
Sit down and discuss the issue with your loved ones. What are things that could bring them that little bit of much needed sanity in an insane world?
