Toilet paper, tampons, soap, detergent, toothpaste...

Write down everything you use in a day, and do it for a few days. You will see there are some insignificant things we take for granted that we really can't do without.

Safe for two guns. The biggest threat any family faces, is an unauthorized family member or household acquaintance, or burglar getting a hold of the guns and doing harm to themselves or someone else. If the family does not have a safe, get one. Ammo should be stored in a separate yet secure place. Nearby is fine.

Don't go too bonkers over this SHTF stuff. The sky has been falling a lot of years, and it is still up there.

At fifteen, other things are important also. Cars, girls, grades in school, part time job or three saving up for the important things on the list.

When I was your age, all I worried about was what to purchase next from the J C Whitney catalog.

It is ok to prepare, but other things in life are just as important.

Well please tell that to therewolf -- he thinks you are preoccupied rather than being a responsible young citizen. I applaud you! And as you've already seen, a little knowledge, skill, perspective, planning and investment can go a long way.

Well I dont think its been said yet but some sort of water purification. Those lakes will come in handy when your clean water runs out. Also make sure you store your water in a container designed for long term storage. Normal bottles of water the plastics may not last.
As the others have said, bravo for taking it upon yourself to make sure your family is prepared! We need more people like you in the world.

Carolina Golden rice. 20-lb. bags on sale here for $6.99!

Last week they were a little more. I don't even know if I need them anymore but three bags fit in a heavy-guage mylar bag with oxygen absorbers and dehumidifier packs so a buddy is getting that Christmas present early with a jar of multivitamins and some oil when it goes on sale for the 4th of July. He already got the meat substitute.

With all the water nearby, do you have something to filter it when you run out of clean water? And if you have to walk, carrying water is really really heavy. Something like a burke water filter bottle is light and you can refill it and drink from about every pool of water in the area.
