If you have an infant, or expect to give birth, plan on breastfeeding until the baby is a year old. If the retail supply lines dry up, there won't be any formula, and there might not be any milk.

Develop a "farm kitchen" that simply has all the basics for preparing food from scratch -- flour (all purpose, self-rising, whole wheat, etc.), salt, herbs and seasonings, oil, lard, oats, barley, non-gmo cornmeal, plus fresh, dried, canned, and frozen fruits and vegetables. You will not only be healthier by avoiding processed foods, you will develop skills in food preparation, and save a LOT of money.

Starcreek and Caribou you can buy both sewing needle and sewing kits really cheaply on Ebay too as well as lots of other things.
- solar lanterns and portable solar panels. (quality can range from poor to excellent)
- bungee cords, snap straps. (I wish they made them to last in the sunlight... they really don't)
- unscented bleach for water purification, water purification tablets. (In this heat, bleach has a short life. Powders like Pool shock, and tablets are better to have stored)
- bottled water or rain water in tanks. (a rain water tank is ESSENTIAL!! No one should be without one!)
