    It's a yes or no question. Cheap consumables,food,lighters,first aid ect,than yes. Shelter,sleep system and other durable items,no. Situations like where I'm at and where I'm going. Am I in woods heading to the mountains or in a city going to a swamp. Depends on your situation.

    Absolutely I could raid Wal-Mart or other similar big box stores for BOB supplies. Would everything be top notch? Maybe, maybe not after all let's all remember the K-Mart promise. "If it hasn't came apart in 30 days or less bring it back and we'll give you something that will." My concern is that if it got to that point that would be where a lot of others would first start raiding too. Ever watch the movie "World War Z?" There's a looting the grocery store scene which I could see pan out very easily. Possible to stock up now? Most certainly. Avoid the place like the plague come SHTF? Even more certainly.

    We have three different walmarts here. One is a super store, one grocery, and one almost non grocery all else. The superstore yes. The other two to a lessor degree yes.

    Student backpack, water bottle, energy bars, good knife, flash light, few batteries, small first aid kit, few meds, fishing kit / line not pole, couple of flares, some deodorant, soap, razors, and good supply of hand sanitizer, plastic bags, and tp....

    If you were on an extremely limited budget, what would you start with?

    Walmart is our number 1.

    We get a lot of cheap sh$t there.

    I personally don't give a rat's ass hair about those little 5 year old Chinese kids making the crap I'm buying.

    I'll bet those little kids are going to be real pissed off when they find out they don't have fpcking job!!!

    Yes, I agree that WalMart and other big box stores have killed small family run stores which is a shame. But by the same token that allowed those small family run stores to prosper for many years capitalism and the free market we all so love has allowed people like Sam (WalMart's founder) to build a free market store so efficient the competition couldn't keep up.

    While I rarely shop at WalMart and avoid the non-USA made items WalMart sells they did grow that large using principals most of us support, compition in the free market. Wal-Mart just did it so well and thought so big they ran many smaller businesses into the poor house.

    However, newer free market shopping stores (like Amazon) using the internet may make Wal-Mart a "has been". The free economy allows for new and "better" retail methods to prevail.

    Don't we all cry for a more free America and capitalism? sometimes progress sucks...

    Ok damn it! I am willing to forgo the steaks and maybe the entertainment but I will be damned if I m giving up my beer and hookers!
