One thing that might be good to have around would be to keep some solar lights. I have now about 20 of them, when the power goes out I bring them in for the kids, so they can go to bed with a light. But they do come in handy if the power goes out, and you never know when you may need them.

Quick adds to the list:

compass
solar blanket
extra meds (at least enough to wean off - especially antidepressants)
H20 purification tablets
gorp / granola / dried fruit

High value trade items like TP, Tampons, allergy pills,etc... Cheap now, but valuable when distribution shuts down.

Don't forget about shampoo, and soap as a trade item, I am sure that will become something people will be needing.

Make sure to have some extra clothes. In fact I go to the local churches, where they give out nice clothes, and I get clothes that are bigger then my kids are, this way 2 or 3 years from now, my kids will have clothes. I also pick up sheets there and use them for quilt squares, this way I can always make quilts to keep us warm in the winter time, and don't forget the needles, and thread. I also have in my bedroom closet about 100 skeins of yarn so I can knit what ever else we may be needing to keep us warm.

I know all to well that the costs of these items can overwhelm us. My solution was to spend an extra $10-15 a week at the grocery for storable foods & check out yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets, ect to get the other items we needed at a great price!
Also, instead of trying to haul the family tent along if we have to bug out on foot, We have opted for canvas tarps, & 550 cord which we got at a flea market for next to nothing.
You may want to load up all the gear you think you will be needing in your packs & take the family out for a small hike in the woods to give the gear a test run & so you can work out any problems before anything bad happens. After the first hike, I went back thru the packs & decided what was really important to have, it lightened the load & made moving alot faster & easier for the second trip out.
