Step 1: The box

Acquire a hard sided box that you think will hold all your stuff. You may have to migrate to a larger box as you get more stuff. 

Step 2: Lights and Batteries

It is important to bring lights but it is more important to bring the bateries

Step 3: Tweezers

I have gotten lots if things stuck in my fingers while building tools so i have added a pair to my kit.

Step 4: Fire Making Bits

Fire steel is reliable and water proof but it is only as good as what you use to catch the spark that is where the dryer lint comes in. The trick is to put a little bit of air in the bag so the lint still has air in it. If that fails you should have matches in a waterproof container for a fall back. 

Step 5: The Compass

Before going out in the woods you should always have a compass. Just because you have one dose not mean you know how to use it. I suggest finding a website and some practice.   

Step 6: Floss

It can be used for multiple things like string, stitching and flossing   

Step 7: Knife Sharpener

One incredibly useful thing you could add that would take practically no space or weight is Duct Tape. Just put a big strip of it on the outside of your container. Gaffer's tape is even better. I am a photographer and I keep a long strip taped to the bottom of my camera bag and another wrapped around my monopod.

Nice kit!

add some paracord 2 lighters and a waterskin
I suggest a lighter and some cotton balls soaked in petroleum jelly for the fire section and some paracord & jute twine (jute twine is great tinder) for the string section.
Good job on your first Instructable.

i have wanted to add some paracord but i dont have any or any money at the moment
Well, jute twine is usually $2-3 for a large roll (~600 feet).
It's great for making baskets too. http://www.hedgehogleatherworks.com/How-To-Make-Cordage-Baskets-Wilderness-Survival-s/55.htm
