94. Wine/Liquors (for bribes, medicinal, etc.,)

Too funny! Guess I can save my money on those items. :)

I have to admit . . . Numbers 73, 74, 93, 94, and 99 were not on MY LIST of things to stock!
I did notice that Dr. Pepper WASN'T on the list, so I replaced #94 with that very important item!
The rest of the list had a lot of great items!

Having some hot drinks are a very good idea for here where it gets pretty cold in the winter.

Also, big dogs are good for protection. Especially if you do not have any guns or other protection items.

Wine/Liquors would also be good for sterilizing items if you were unable to access a fire, or were running low on fuel. Bribes are also a great thing to do with them.

I found this list a few years ago and it has been a really great resorce for us in our preperation. Thanks for sharing again.

The items we don't use such as cigarettes, beer, wine etc. would be great trading materials with those that "have" to have these things. They would be worth gold to someone with an addiction to them. Just a thought!
