5 Overlooked SHTF Survival Items

5 Overlooked SHTF Survival Items

(SurvivalDaily.com) – When we’re prepping, it’s easy to overlook some common items that are useful. Many people worry too much about food, water and security to see the importance of other objects. Slow down and make sure you have everything you need or want, because after SHTF, you may not get it.


For a large percentage of people, coffee is a necessity to make it through the day. That’s not going to change just because the world as we know it has ended — not to mention that coffee after SHTF will be highly valuable and could be a serious bargaining chip for bartering.


While electricity may be uncommon after SHTF, board games and card games can still help you pass the time. Games can also help you destress and get your mind off the fact your world as you know it has ended.


Books, for the same reason as games, can prove important after SHTF. After all, you’ll probably have some extra time on your hands — unless, of course, you’re too busy trying to survive. A book during moments of peace can boost morale.


Paper may seem useless on its own, but it has its place in a SHTF world. You can fold it into origami or paper planes for entertainment, or maybe you enjoy drawing. Then again, paper also makes a great fire starter and even a toilet paper substitute.

Hygiene Products

It’s hard to imagine people overlook their own hygiene, but some people do. Keeping yourself clean and sanitary is important to avoid infection and illnesses, both of which you don’t want after SHTF.

There are many items we might overlook when it comes to prepping for the end of the world. Check out this product and the survival secrets it holds.
