White oak bark. Look into its uses.

We have tweezers for those pesky splinters, hemastats for suturing pleasure, and quik clot to slow down that bleeding. When we started prepping I threw a whole grooming kit in the box-clippers, files, etc.

We did a day in the life thing-if we touched it, used it, then we need it in the supplies-worked out pretty good.

Am I the only person with 6,000 toothpicks? They come 1,000 in a box, $1, at Dollar Tree. I use them to pick the silk out of corn. Can't imagine life without them.

I will agree with the gloves. I prefer mechanics. More durable and moveable $50 will get you a good pair

This is my problem. I'm a musician and I want to stock up, but I worry about rust and corrosion. When I played professionally, I changed strings every two to three gigs so it wasn't an issue. Playing recreationally, I change them less often, but I've still never had to buy more than two or three sets at a time.

How do you store them without rust and corrosion?

Zip ties. The ones with the lever that allow you to release and re-use are the best.

Default extras?

Extra can openers and bottle openers learned this one the other night when my hand can opener decided it was no longer going to 'work'

Diaper rash cream is okay but I would much rather have EXTRA toothpaste with blood root in it (more effective than floride in preventing gum disease and cavities)

And the kicker is grain alcohol...not to drink lol, but to use to make tinctures from plant material when the medicine runs out you will be looking at the plants around you for help and the best way to preserve and use is by making tinctures

+1 on the can openers. Go to your local military surplus store where you can get P-38's for 25 each

Modern medicine is very good at treating symptoms while doing absolutely nothing to fix the underlying causes....

Coins.

People might remember to bring money, but do include a few quarters to use on a payphone in case all mobile phone signals go poof.

I can't remember the last time I saw a payphone. Anyone else have the same feeling that they have disappeared?
