These prepper items in our opinion are what they call ‘Getting the bang for your buck”. One prepper we know puts it best, “ The best decision for me was to get these 5 things under 5 dollars for the survival kit!”
Prepping can get expensive sometimes but a lot of times we are paying for the form and not the function of the item.
So needless to say, it comes in handy for any prepper who wants to load up their survival kit with these 5 things under 5 dollars for your survival kit.
5 Things Under 5 Dollars For Your Survival Kit
1. Iodine Tincture
This can be used to disinfect wounds, gear and even drinking water! Just add 5-10 drops of 2% iodine to 1 quart of suspect drinking water. Use 5 drops if the water is warm and clear, use 10 drops of the water is ice cold or cloudy. Shake it up for a moment and wait one hour before drinking.
2. Survival Blanket
This little invention was used by astronauts even! So it’s safe to say that a prepper will go a long way when he has this item in his survival kit. Even better if your survival blanket costs you nothing at all…
A reflective emergency blanket could be the best $2 you ever spend if you’re lost in the wild. It will help keep you warm (if reflects body heat back to you,) and it’s also great for signaling, as it will reflect a lot of sunlight. This can also be used to waterproof your shelter, and to collect rainwater.
3. Hand Sanitizer
When you don’t have easy access to soap and water, you can fight infection by using an alcohol-based sanitizer to clean your hands before and after treating injuries. In addition to its normal use, hand sanitizer can also be used as a flame accelerant thanks to its high alcohol content.
4. Bread In A Can
This rodent-proof, bug-proof, waterproof metal can of bread with a three-year shelf life might not be the most delicious carbs you’ll ever eat, but it only costs about $2.50 and packs 1,040 calories per loaf/can!
5. Duct Tape
Make emergency repairs on, tents, gear, bags, tarps, packs, sleeping bags, clothing, rain gear, etc.
It can also be used for wrapping sprained ankles in an emergency.
