When people are telling us to stock up on supplies left and right they're not telling us because it's the obvious thing to do but because after a collapse we're desperately going to need them.
Some people may feel apprehensive about stockpiling a lot of food because it's expensive. After all, not everyone has a ton of money they can use to store up supplies.
