As this video by Rogue Preparedness shows you, there are actually twelve such items that will be very useful during this ongoing pandemic (and beyond) that you can still purchase, despite being in exceptionally high demand.
These items are:
1. RV’s and Land
Many people have decided that they want to live a homestead lifestyle. The cheapest way to do it is to buy a cheap but usable plot of land and an RV to go with it. Thousands of people across the country are doing this in response to the pandemic.
In general, chickens have been widely available despite selling very highly. You can raise chickens on your plot of land or in your backyard to lay eggs (in response to egg shortages) and meat (for when times get tough).
3. Canning Supplies
Everyone wants to buy canned food because it lasts a long time. Canned beans or fruits, for example, can last for literally a decade or more with proper storage.
4. Freeze-Dried Foods
Here’s another obvious one: freeze-dried foods. These have actually been selling very well and some places have gone out of stock just like sanitation items, but since the madness has settled down a little bit, some stores are beginning to restock.
5. Child Playsets and Family Swimming Pools
These items are popular with prepping families who are afraid that if things get really bad, their younger children won’t have any outdoor activities to enjoy. They’ve become even more popular because of people who have been locked home under quarantine.
6. Toilet Paper
Big surprise, toilet paper has been selling out like crazy to the point that there have been mass shortages all across the country. The good news, for now, is that it’s beginning to come back, just like freeze-dried foods.
This is another hugely popular item, for hopefully obvious reasons. Masks have been hard to find, but the good news is that production has been firing on all cylinders to keep up with demand.
Not just drinking alcohol, but rubbing alcohol that can be used to sanitize wounds and for disinfectant. 90% alcohol is very hard to find, but 70% alcohol can still be found.
Hand sanitizer has also been making a comeback to the shelves. If anything, there has been an over-saturation of hand sanitizer at this point, but it could go again quickly. Stock up on now while you still can.
10. Baking Items
Flour, sugar, yeast, and so on were previously sold out, but are beginning to make their way back to the shelves now. Baking powder is another item that was commonly out of stock but is making a comeback.
11. Berkey Water Filters
Berkey water filters previously had to be back-ordered, but demand for them has settled down a little since. If you don’t have one of these yet, buy it while you still can because it can be used to filter water that you collect for your whole family.
Ammunition can still be hard to find, especially in the common calibers like 9mm, .45, 5.56, and .308. Your best bet will be to just keep an eye out for it while you can, to buy it in bulk online (if you can still find it), or to consider guns and ammunition in calibers that may be less popular and therefore less in demand.
