Start today (this will take a while). Go out and buy a few thousand cartons of cigarettes. Drive to Mexico and buy thousands of bottles of antibiotics and pain MEDS. Then hit Costco and buy thousands of bars of soap. Next go to an army surplus store and purchase a thousand ammo boxes.
Finally, put the 1000 kits together (be sure to double bag first in gallon ziplocks) and then come up with a system by which you can bury them and remember each location. Don't write it down.
Then, after 90% of the people are croaked and the zombies return to the grave, you're going to be on easy street. Once a month hold an auction. Whoever delivers the most supplies (food) gets the cache.
If you read Dale Carnegie's book "How to win friend and influence Peole," he says that after WWII he could spend an entire day on the town in Tokyo by using one pack of cigarettes as currency.
