I hope I have a few months before that happens. I should have enough money by then to, at least, get a reasonable basic supply.
I know what you mean. It took me about 3 years to reach my goal of 2k per caliber. I didn't buy in bulk, just a couple or 3 boxes here and there over what I shot every month. Only problem with that method is you end up spending a lot on shipping.

Ammoseek.com can be your friend, just realize that the price per cartridge is before shipping and some of the sites they list have high shipping costs.

Don't try to break her bank, unless she has a lot of guns, a couple boxes each probably isn't near that much. It adds up if you buy what you can afford monthly.

No problem with shipping. I work in a gun shop. But, I only work part-time.

I could easily buy a box per week . . . IF I weren't always making payments out of my paycheck for new guns.
Well, ammo doesn't do you much good if you don't have a platform to use them in. Guns and ammo will be a huge asset if things turn out to get real bad. Just a thought.

you contradict yourself........having ammo even without a platform is an asset

If finances are tight once you have a few boxes of each caliber load up on 22lr.

If the time to evacuate comes you can carry a whole lot more 22 ammo for the same weight and volume as anything else.

If there is a shortage you will be able to keep shooting through it and resupply the bigger calibers after.

Certainly, but unless you have a platform, you're only banking on things going bad, and that's not really a good incentive.
