    It warms my heart to see someone talking about clothes. Maslow’s bottom rung is “food, clothing and shelter”. As homesteaders, we destroy at least 3 pair of jeans a year and we didn’t buy them pre-torn by a designer. Cammo has it’s place but an entire wardrobe of it may be a bit much. It only makes sense to me to set aside 3 new pair of jeans and belts for each person in the family. Once life changes and people are not sitting behind a desk all day, they will probably need the belt. Kids are a greater challenge because they wear clothes out faster and they grow. Many people (more women than men) have two closets full of professional clothes that will be very impractical in a non-professional situation. Have you ever washed something that was ‘dry clean only’?

    • It seems to me that people don’t think of clothing as “shelter” but it’s probably the most important aspect of sheltering yourself that I can think of when in an emergency situation. And you’re right about the types of clothing that most people have… most of it isn’t worth a darn for actual work!
