It’s true that survival items can be quite expensive. This includes water, food, emergency and medical supplies, etc. So if you are on a budget and you are really determined to start prepping today (which you should!) , you may want to consider getting some of the items you need at the dollar store. Of course, quality is not as good as more expensive ones but still good especially if you’re really tight on budget.
1 Bottled water packs
This is the most important thing you need to have in order to survive. Remember, you can only survive 3 days without water.
2 Canned Goods
Food is very important. Canned goods have a long shelf life and 1 or 2 can definitely be shared among family members. It also helps that you can eat it straight from the can.
This is something you don’t want to forget when preparing your emergency kit as this is very useful during an emergency situation. You may use it as a sling, a tourniquet, to sediment filters, etc.
You can purchase packs of candles and glow sticks at the dollar store. These can be used for light, heat, and as fire starters.
Matches, lighters, and other fire-making implements are always a very important part of survival. It gives you warmth, comfort, cooking and security. Always have at least one extra lighter.
The ones you can find at the dollar store may not be as good as the expensive flashlights but it wouldn’t hurt to have extras throughout your home. Better if you can also score some batteries.
This include hand sanitizer, wet wipes, shampoo, toothpaste, soap, etc.
