Many expensive degrees today almost guarantee a life spent as a Starbucks barista. As well, in a post-SHTF world, those degrees will be worse than useless. The years spent in classes such as “Games and Culture”, “Gender and Representation of Asian Women” and “The Invention of French Theory”…oh, my.

TEOTWAWKIThe following is a list of ten non-food items that are currently inexpensive and easy to get, but will be in demand after TEOTWAWKI.

A good medical book for TEOTWAWKI
