List of Prepper "High-Value" Barter Items

   When that big storm hits or even worse a complete economic collapse, your not going to worried because you have prepared yourself right? Of course you did.

   Just in case you may have missed an item or two, I have compiled a list of "High-Value" items that will not only be helpful to you but can also be traded for things you may need or want. Even if you are a single male or female, there are a few things you may consider buying. There is also a few items that you may never use (ex.tobacco) but that doesn't mean it's a bad investment.

   This list is only partial because there is too many items that could be added depending on your location and situation.

   Here We Go:

  Not in any type of order

   1)  Batteries
   2)  Disposable lighters/Matches
   3)  Feminine hygiene products
