59 Reasons Why Every Prepper Should Frequent the Dollar Store

Monday, November 11, 2013


I might be a prepper, but I’m also a cheapskate. I like to find a bargain because for every dollar I save, that’s another dollar I can spend on more costly preps like firearms and ammo. With that in mind, I’m often found strolling the aisles of my local Dollar Store looking for a bargain. While you aren’t going to find top of the line survivalist gear at the dollar store, you will find a lot of handy supplies for super cheap! I compiled a list of 59 items that I’ve bought at for my own personal prepper stash during visits to my local Dollar Tree store. These are my 59 reasons for suggesting that you shop at the dollar store in your town. Check them out and then see what you can find at your Dollar Store!

Medical
Antihistamines
Acetaminophen
Ibuprofen
Antibiotic Ointment
Rubbing Alcohol
Hydrogen Peroxide
Toothache Gel
Bandages
Burn Cream
Paper Tape
Baby Powder
Diaper Rash Ointment

(Note: Some people suggest that the medications available at dollar stores might have questionable expiration dates or potency. I’m of the opinion that in a SHTF scenario, any medicine is better than no medicine at all. My family has used antihistamines, Ibuprofen, and Acetaminophen from the Dollar Store with no ill effects. However, do your research and use your own judgment. Shop at your own risk!)
