Super Light Economy Emergency Kit

This super-light, small kit costs me only $50 to make and has everything you would need to survive minus food.  It is a great simple kit and due to it’s small size can be tucked away almost anywhere and easily carried.

Most kits you buy online or at the store consist mostly of water and first aid supplies.  They often completely ignore how how you will cook food or how to purify your water once your initial supply is gone.  Additionally, the bags can be quite heavy and uncomfortable.  This a great alternative, and by making it yourself you can add twice the materials for the same price.  Just add some food and you are set.
