Emergency Preparedness- Medical kit

I didn't take a picture of this one. Sorry!

We took advantage of a few Buy 1 get 1 deals, hit Aldi, resale shops, garage sales and just had a small stash of things of our own to add to our kit. It goes beyond a few bandages and some asprin.

Think about the possiblity of keeping a bit of spare medication that you need monthly. Even if it is a weeks worth. Of course rotating your stock of med's is necessary. The arguement and studies of how long medication lasts is questionable. Do your own research and ask a doctor if need be.

We were crusing Wally world and Terry found this really neat looking tackle bag that is suited for our needs. Oh, alright! I'll take a picture later. LOL!

Maybe all this seems like overkill or just silly to someone. What can it hurt?
Again, we used Excel to make the our list in. We can add categories or take them away. Of course add or subtract things we don't use or do use. Do what works for you!

As the Boy Scout motto goes- "Be prepared!"
