The essential skills you will need in case of the doomsday
When the doomsday comes, for those who manage to survive, the world will look a lot different than we are used to. After building a shelter, storing all the supplies and surviving the disaster, it will undoubtedly be more difficult to live in the world after the doomsday. However, if you store knowledge in your head in addition to storing supplies in your shelter, living in such a world may be easier for you than it would normally be. This is why we bring you some of the skills you will find extremely useful in case of surviving the doomsday. And not only that, these are the skills you could also trade in the post-apocalyptic world.
Clothes – you and the other survivals may find useful various knowledge and skills relating to clothes. Since washing clothes and buying new will not be easy or even possible after the disaster, it will be very appreciated if you can repair clothes and shoes and if you know how to wash clothes without the washing machine.
Raising animals and planting crops – the supplies of food will be extremely limited and not very available. Therefore, knowing how to raise chickens for eggs, goats and cows for milk and the like will be very useful. Also, growing and picking fruit, grains and vegetables, especially in extreme conditions, will be another essential skill needed for as normal life as possible.
