Forget about the 60” flat screen TV and expensive Air Jordan’s. If the world as we know it is ending, everyone else will be fighting over water, gas, candles, and canned food, all of which you’ve wisely stored in advance. So take this opportunity to stock up on other necessities like lip balm and lotion for your soon-to-be-wrecked lips and hands, Vaseline and cotton balls to use as fire fuel and kindling, vitamins, and all the antibiotics you can find; including penicillin, Flagyl, Cipro, Zithromax, and Augmentin. You should also look for painkillers like Percocet and Vicodin. Don’t forget about tampons and other feminine hygiene products for the ladies and as much toilet paper as you can carry. In addition, you should remember to grab cigarettes, alcohol, and lighters that you can trade for whatever you forgot.
