    Bartering Goods

    We all stockpile food, water, ammunition, firearms and other necessities for when SHTF. My question is, do you guys purposely stockpile barter items (ie. booze, cigarettes, candy etc.)? Do you buy the cheap booze or name brand booze if it is strictly for bartering? What other items do you stockpile strictly for bartering? My guess would be to get the cheap stuff because people won't care after SHTF.

    I have some silver stocked up, not sure if it will actually be used to barter with seeing as food and water will be the necessities.

    I stock up on knowledge, know-how and abilities.

    They never go stale (like coffin nails and candy), take up zero space, don't weigh a thing,........... and can be traded over and over.

    I try not to make plans much. The word 'premeditated' would get tossed around in court.

    Yes, I purposely store the things you mentioned. I also only store the good stuff, ya never know when you might need to be your own best customer, huh?

    I've been buying cheap vodka at Costco for this
    purpose. Don't drink it; it last forever. It stores
    easily. I figured it would be worth something.

    First of all, what do you think you will need to barter for?
    What are you willing to trade to get it?
    What you have may not be what the other person needs/wants

    I have a case of half pint bottles of cheap vodka for trade. I could probably lose some liquid soap and garbage bags without hurting.

    I don't know what I would trade FOR though. If I did, I'd stock up now. But situations change.
