Step 1: Foil and Handkerchief
This step covers the foil and the handkerchief. The foil is used for signalling, and can also be used to boil water. You could also use to to make a reflector cooker. The handkerchief has multiple uses, you could wave it in the air to signal someone, you can wipe yer nose, stop bleeding, etc. Both are very useful, and can be folded up very small. My handkerchief is actually cut up to be smaller.
Step 2: First Aid
This slide will cover the first aid of the tin. I forgot to mention that all this stuff WILL fit in the tin. The giant band-aid can be useful for bigger injuries. I also include 5 tiny band-aids, 2 regular band-aids, a cleaning wipe, anti-biotic ointment, and medical tape. All of this is very useful for curing injuries, and can be put in a small space.
Step 3: Rubber Bands and Gum
The rubber bands have various uses. They can hold things together, you can flick them at people, and other things. I use them to hold the kerchief so it doesn't expand. The gum is mainly for moral and to stave off hunger. Gum can make a long plane trip better by helping make you not as nauseous, and it can be used to make you less hungry in survival situations.
Step 4: Matches and Cotton Ball
The matches can be used to start fires. They are very small, so they can fit in tight spaces. I put in 5 of them. The cotton ball was mainly used because i needed to put something in the middle of the medical tape. It can be used to start fires, or stop bleeding.
Step 5: The Knife and the Earplugs
The knife has unlimited uses. It can be uses to shave some wood, stab someone, cut rope, etc. Extremely useful. The one in the picture is a junky one, and really isn't that good, so get a better.one. It is very small. The earplugs are also useful. Say, your stuck in a jungle with loud animals and can't get any sleep. What do you do? Earplugs. They can also be used as rope to tie something together.
Step 6: The Bag and the Money
The bag can be used to store water, cure hyperventilation, keep food fresh, blablabla. The money is very useful. You finally escape from the forbiden jungle, but alas, you don't have money to buy any food, and you starve to death. So, yea. I put in 5 dollars, but it doesn't really matter how much you put in.
Step 7: Packing It All In
So, here is the is how i packed it in. The first aid stuff goes on the bottom. I had problems with it not staying closed. So, i got a giant rubber band and closed it. Yup. Very useful. That's about it! Hope you liked it!
