Multi-Use Products to Stockpile

Bookmark and Share

Jason Hartman loves to say, “Debt is my favorite four-letter word.” That seems like an odd statement coming from someone who advises others on acquiring wealth. Yet Jason has a unique view on debt. You can use fixed-rate loans to purchase commodities that will be necessary for TEOTWAWKI. Of course, we all know that owning land is essential, as is purchasing items to assist with our basic needs. Lumber for building shelter. Crops for maintaining food sources. Weapons for hunting and protection. Cloth, thread, needles, and other essentials for providing clothing. However, you can also use this debt to acquire products with more than one use, which will not only be helpful to you in an uncertain future, but will also be useful in bartering situations.

Dawn: If you’ve packed a jump bag for your dog, be sure to stock up on Dawn dish soap. It’s a cheap alternative to dog shampoo that leaves your pet’s coat shiny and healthy. Plus, it kills fleas instantly.

Colgate: Not only does it freshen breath and whiten teeth, this toothpaste makes a soothing treatment for burns.

Gatorade: Pain medicine is certainly easier to stockpile, but Gatorade fills two needs. Not only is it a great water substitute, it has the unique ability to cure headaches. Simply drink two full glasses of the liquid to relieve head pain and you won’t experience an upset stomach or other side effects that are associated with aspirin, acetaminophen, or ibuprofen.

Altoids: If you’ve got a stuffy nose associated with a cold, try chewing a couple of Altoids. These strong mints can clear your head and your nasal passages, allowing you to breathe freely again.

Alka-Seltzer: At the first signs of a urinary tract infection, dissolve two tablets in water and drink. Alka-Seltzer can cure the infection, and you’ll see quick results.

Listerine: As a powerful antiseptic, Listerine is helpful in disinfecting minor abrasions, such as broken blisters. Just a few drops will do the trick. Remember that this might sting some while it works.

Quaker Oats: Feeling arthritis pain? Mix two cups of Quaker Oats with one cup of boiling water. Allow to cool and then use as a paste to offer relief for aching arthritis pain.

Hunt’s Tomato Paste: The acidic nature of tomatoes makes Hunt’s Tomato Paste the perfect salve for boils. The tomatoes not only bring the boil to a head, they help relieve pain. (Top image: Flickr | amberkennedy)
