How would you spend $1000.00 on emergency food and water storage?

If you had $1000.00 to spend on food/water storage what would you buy?

I'm just starting the research and I would love to hear anyone's opinions or ideas.

The smart move looks like buying a IBC Intermediate Bulk Container for water storage and canning/freezing homemade food. Peanut Butter and canned meats are also a good idea for storing food.

Or I could kill two birds with one stone and build an aquaponics system.

What else would you all do?

Not sure

I don't think it has sodium nitrate, but I could be wrong. I think the ingredients are all natural. Let me check.

Brita sells good water filters.

Yes, I'm most concerned about water

I'm fairly confident that I'll always be able to find food but I'm worried about water in case of an emergency or shortage.

I've heard good things about colloidal silver to disinfect water but I know little about it.

Colloidal silver

The last few times I felt a cold coming on I would take a teaspoon in the morning and I never got sick.

I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.

Thanks for sharing richelle

I'm thinking I'm definitely going to use this tax return to try out colloidal silver.

CS is great for the medical shelf, too

I just used it to help get rid of MRSA.
