Introduction: What's in My Survival/first Aid Kit You Ask?

About: This box provides word's about me, myself and I.....For instance, My name is Amanda, but most people have adapted to calling me "Manda" (quotations added for dramatic effect.) as they seem to not posses the ...
These items! Got a quick little video explaining the items within my kit, and why I have those particular items. Also, I have some photos below for those of you that would rather read for yourself then listen to my rambling (Though I tried to make the video not boring!)

    You may want to consider wrapping a few feet of duct tape around the outside.

    I would also suggest an Epipen,just in case. You never know what you may get stung/bitten by.

    So far so good !!

    But you DEFINETLY need:
    - some sort of knife in there AND
    - scalpel/razor blade

    You should also benefit:
    - some more safety pins,
    - zip-ties
    - rubber bands
    - sewing kint
    - saw blade
    - gauze
    - pencil/paper/pen

    I'm happy you did not put any fishing stuff in there: it' way too over-rated
    Also one rule I use is that "if the quantity of an item you bring is too few/little/small, then it's of no use at all".

    Yes! A knife is a must! I need to get one!
    I do have razor blades in there, they are taped to the top of the lid ^w^
    More safety pins would be great, and you would thing with all the sewing I do, I would remember to put that in there! Hahaha.

    One of the things I always see in the first aid kits that I buy is tea, sugar, and salt. Nice kit though!!!

    Thank you! :0)
    And yes, those would be good things to have in a kit. I always shuffle my kit accordingly depending upon what I'm going out to do be it a light hike at a state park or heavy hiking or camping out in the wilderness.

    Nice kit. If you are looking for a nice, usable knife, I recommend the STL2 by Gerber. very compact but all metal, with a locking frame and only about $12 to 15 (US) at Walmart or other stores.

    I like that speariment gum box. I have a twix box that I got at an after christmas sale. Now I know I can use that box as a survival/first aid kit. small knives can get pricey if you get the good stuff.

    knifeworks.com has a nice selection of good quality knives if you want to look for one.

    thanks for the video too, it's helpful seeing someone explain their ideas.

    Thanks! I will def look at the website, In need of a good knife.
    And yeah, the spearmint box a friend actually gave to me, she didn't know what to do with it, so I made a kit out of it, She also provided the waterproof matches to me and the toilet paper.

    A couple of needles and some thread would be good to have also.
