I'd rather have a few things I need

A deep freezer and vacuum sealer is nice to put away meat, particularly if you are into hunting and can get fresh meat in season.

Dry beans, rice, nuts, quinoa, honey, peanut butter, wheat, and a lot of other foods can store a long time, even in poor packaging.

Medicines can usually be stored for at least a year.

Cleaning supplies and most toiletries have essentially unlimited shelf life.

A back up generator, kerosene space heater, lanterns, flashlights, general camping supplies are all good to have for emergencies.

I like to keep extras of things that I need more than barter money.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
