First start by adding the toothpicks, razor and matches inside the money and roll them up and put it inside, put the bandage behind the money,  then add the alcohol swab on the side, add the clippers in front of the money, add the lint in front of the clippers, then lastly add the tinfoil like so. Then Close. Or if you want to add chapstick, unfold the foil cut it in half, fold and add the chapstick in front of the clippers then slip the foil between the swab and case.

And maybe an emergency Mylar emergency blanket. Keep warm in the freezing wilderness at night.

You're welcome. I would suggest a maxpedition beefy pocket organizer. A bit expensive so rugged and durable.

I would suggest some changes:

-take out the nail clippers. It takes up too much space for how little it does
-a bit larger case. It will allow you to put more essentials in
-add a ferrocium rod. They start way many more fires than matches
-water purification tablets. Easy to use and purifies 1L of water
-a better cutting tool. Maybe a small pen knife
-para cord. Has many inner strands and and outer shell and is very useful.
-fishing kit. Can catch food.
-snare wire. Can catch food also
-sewing kit. For repairing tents or clothing
-bigger first aid kit. You never know what's going to happen out there.

Make these changes and the kit's a winner.

Thanks for all the ideas, they sound alot better than what I have in there!
