Today’s Challenge

Today, take the time to put some of your existing supplies into kits. Having things organized by type of emergency can really help you to lay hands on what you need more quickly.

In an article on prep organization, I wrote:

I have these kits packed in large tubs, labeled, and stacked in my mudroom. Some kits you might want to create:

  • First Aid Kit: Sure, you will have lots of miscellaneous supplies too numerous to stash inside a kit. But keep the basics in one place so that you can immediately provide attention in an emergency. I use a fishing tackle box for this.
  • Pandemic Response Kit: When it looked as though Ebola was going to race across the country, I put together a large tub with pandemic supplies such as Tyvex suits, N100 masks, bleach, bleach wipes, etc.
  • Power Outage Kit: This kit is made easy to access so I can find everything in the dark. Right on top is a headlamp so I can go through and access the supplies we need. This kit has candles, lighters, matches, flashlights, batteries, etc.
  • Bug-out Kit: Of course, the ultimate kit for preppers is your bug out bag.  See this article for instructions on putting together a near-perfect kit.
  • Water Kit: I have a container earmarked for a water emergency. In it, I can find spare parts for my Berkey, water purification tablets, testing kits, etc.
  • Irreplaceable Items:  During the King Fire, when we thought we were going to have to evacuate, I packed a box full of special items that are irreplaceable: baby pictures, a couple of special books, some heirloom jewelry, and other sentimental items. If you have to bug out, there are some things that you’ll want to take with you. If those items are already packed up, you won’t have to spend valuable time looking for them. (source)

What kits can you make out of your existing supplies?

It’s almost like free preps when you go through what you have and get it organized. What kind of kits did you make today?
