Survival kits can be fabricated from assortment of materials inexpensively purchased from your local Dollar Tree store.
These items can be packed in the car, in a pack that can be carried. These will make your life a LOT easier and safer in an emergency. They may even save your life. All these items can be purchased at your local "Dollar Tree" store. Of course, if you possibly can, buy and carry good quality items.
Trash bags. The large bags that are used for the weekly garbage pick-up can make emergency poncho. To use them cut out an round hole to see out. Cut the side of the bag, near the bottom. Then slice the sides for your arms. This makes a hooded poncho. Garb bags are also useful for waterproofing your backpack or sleeping bag.
Produce bags or diaper bags can be used as gloves, they should have gloves for sale. A hat to keep your head warm. They can be useful to gather food in or to carry berries back to the tent. Of course, Dollar Tree also sells gloves, socks, bandannas.
Now the all-versatile duct tape. To mend a hole in your clothing. It is also a very strong tape for holding several items together.
Matches or lighters. Both are available, and also the long Aim N Flames. These of course are used for making fires to keep warm, cooking your food or smoky fires to signal passing aircraft for help.
Q-Tips and Cotton balls can be coated with petroleum jelly for use as fire starters. As well as for cleaning ears or wounds. They should be a part of every first aid kit.
Petroleum jelly. Plastic snap top jars tend to leak when tipped. The "creamy petroleum jelly" is about 70% water, and does not burn. When put on cotton balls, pet jelly burns long, and also a hot flame. Also for dry skin.
A mirror serves several purposes. It can help you to see and locate something embedded on your face as well as a signal mirror for notify others as to where you are.
Safety pins are useful in your survival kit. They are great for holding clothes together or in the event you have a busted zipper. A few in your first aid kit can act as a means of removing splinters or popping blisters.
Band-aids of assorted sizes, and several over the counter drugs that can help you stay safe and comfortable. Pain pills, anti diarrheal, hand sanitizer (which will burn) and antacids, and more.
For no cook food, there are many items including some meats. Cookies, candies and mints store well, and provide fast energy.
Many of these emergency items can readily be stored in a quart or gallon size Zip lock plastic bags, within a backpack. Use a water proof marker and list the items which are in the bag.
Drinking straws are useful when you need to drink water from homemade devices such as rock bowls, etc. Tin foil can be used not only to cook your food in but also to hold extra medical pills.
You might find a metal cook pot, though very poor quality. Perhaps a metal food can, you can use the can for a cook pot after the food is eaten. You can buy a knife, either a folder or a kitchen knife.
It is important that you always take plenty of water with you. Which you can get at DT, as well as 3 liter soda pop. The soda pop can provide sugar and caffeined.

Yes, I imagine they are suffering now because they don't have garbage bags from which to make ponchos, and hats to carry berries back to their tents.
Did you even read this idiotic thing before you posted it?

Ah, hell. You are so right.
Excuse me while I bang my head on the keyboard a few times.
Well, the flashlights part was good?

(Revised a bit for NYC) Survival Kit Made From the Dollar Tree Store
Survival kits can be fabricated from assortment of materials inexpensively purchased from your local Dollar Tree store.
Trash bags. The large bags that are used for the weekly garbage pick-up CY: can be piled high, cause the trashers won't get there for weeks. You can also bag and stack the looters you just killed.
Garb bags make emergency poncho. To use them cut out an round hole to see out. Cut the side of the bag, near the bottom. Then slice the sides for your arms. This makes a hooded poncho. CY: Cause it rained, for a week.
Garb bags are also useful for waterproofing your backpack or sleeping bag. Cause you're sleeping in a public shelter for the next three weeks.
Produce bags or diaper bags can be used as gloves, they should have gloves for sale. CY: Buy a frying pan to beat burglars over the head.
A hat to keep your head warm. They can be useful to gather food in or to carry berries back to the tent. Of course, Dollar Tree also sells gloves, socks, bandannas. CY: Wish they sold warm clothing.
Now the all-versatile duct tape. To mend a hole in your clothing. It is also a very strong tape for holding several items together. CY: Like feral looters? Bind em up, and call for cops.
Matches or lighters. Both are available, and also the long Aim N Flames. These of course are used for making fires to keep warm, cooking your food or smoky fires to signal passing aircraft for help. CY: Yeah, take a tire rim and pile in a bunch of news papers and storm debris, and have a fire to keep warm. Burn the news paper that says "power on, soon".
Q-Tips and Cotton balls can be coated with petroleum jelly for use as fire starters. As well as for cleaning ears or wounds. They should be a part of every first aid kit. CY: Burn the vaseline.
Petroleum jelly. Plastic snap top jars tend to leak when tipped. The "creamy petroleum jelly" is about 70% water, and does not burn. When put on cotton balls, pet jelly burns long, and also a hot flame. Also for dry skin.
A mirror serves several purposes. It can help you to see and locate something embedded on your face as well as a signal mirror for notify others as to where you are. CY: Right, 100% overcast, raining, and I'm out there with a DT "locker miror" trying to signal.
Safety pins are useful in your survival kit. They are great for holding clothes together or in the event you have a busted zipper. A few in your first aid kit can act as a means of removing splinters or popping blisters. CY: Ooh, I hate those little splinters.
Band-aids of assorted sizes, and several over the counter drugs that can help you stay safe and comfortable. Pain pills, anti diarrheal, hand sanitizer (which will burn) and antacids, and more.
CY: How about packs of cookies and granola bars to eat, since the stores are all closed, and we just ate the last of our cold, uncooked microwave popcorn?
For no cook food, there are many items including some meats. Cookies, candies and mints store well, and provide fast energy. CY: Cookie! Cookie!
Many of these emergency items can readily be stored in a quart or gallon size Zip lock plastic bags, within a backpack. Use a water proof marker and list the items which are in the bag.
Drinking straws are useful when you need to drink water from homemade devices such as rock bowls, etc. Tin foil can be used not only to cook your food in but also to hold extra medical pills.
CY: How about for making tin boats to sail in the cellar? Keep kids occupied for hours.
You might find a metal cook pot, though very poor quality. Perhaps a metal food can, you can use the can for a cook pot after the food is eaten. You can buy a knife, either a folder or a kitchen knife.
CY: Wonder if they have baseball bats for self defense?
It is important that you always take plenty of water with you. Which you can get at DT, as well as 3 liter soda pop. The soda pop can provide sugar and caffeined. CY: The drinking water is good. I'm embarassed that the article didn't mention flashlight batteries. I'd best go rewrite the stupid article, and then repost it several more times. Sorry.
