72 Hour Kit: Week #5: Equipment Part 1 of 3

This week we are gathering equipment for our 72 hour kits. I have broken this into 3 weekly sections to make it more manageable. Here is Part 1:
  • Duct tape
  • Paper, pen/pencil (sharp)
  • Sharpie
  • Make sure you have packed a can opener (this should have been done on week 1)
  • Make sure you have any plastic bowls, plates or utensils that you need (could have been done in week 1)
  • Saucepan (to heat up soup, chili, water, spaghettio’s etc)
  • Small propane or butane stove (these are at Walmart for $25, or Macey's has them on sale right now for $14.99, and Amazon has them for $15.50). Click here to see picture.
  • Canister of propane or butane
  • Battery operated radio & extra batteries
  • Folding shovel

Some of the items listed can be a little extra money. If finances prohibit purchasing these items, maybe make a goal that every time you rotate your food and clothing (6 months) you purchase one of these pricier items.

To do at home this week:
Finish gathering important documents and copying them
Place family photos in a secure place
