Swabs (ends in little bags) and small band aids fit in here.
I added a few small pads of paper towel above the small band aids. If you have gauze use that instead.

The big old band aids sit on top, make sure you can close up the tin after this step. Rearrange if need be.
Close tight and wrap the rubber bands around the case. These can be used for tourniquets or to hold things in place where tape doesn't work.
All done, now put it in your pocket and go. Any suggestions are appreciated!
