I find that I've amassed quite the collection in my office at work. What could I use them for in a survivalist/prepper type of way?



I have 1 full one in my BOB if I would need a boost while on the run but empty they could hold anything that could fit.

Some things I was thinking would be:
-Tinder for fire starting
-Liquid soaps
-Disinfectant concentrates (lysol or simple green)
-Medications
-Drink mix concentrate
-Rubbing alcohol
-Hydrogen Peroxide
-Matches
-Spices (salt,pepper,sugar)

Anything else???

I have a better idea--Buy some Vitamin B complex and some No-Doz if you must, and stop paying $2 each for those things. Keep a jar in your desk at work and drop the cash in there every time you'd normally drink one. Use your hundreds of dollars to buy something you've been putting off.

My buddy gets boxes of em at wholesale from his work so I just toss him a few bucks every now and then and I just grab one or two when I feel like it. Hardly the few hundred dollars you speak of. It's out of pure convenience that I even consume them. Mostly on mornings that I'm hung over :) Your solution would give ya a good kick for sure though.

Great thread, I was trying to find a good container for Chlorine Bleach to purify water. This might just do the trick. Also, I have a lot of the little test strip containers (Diabetic) which make great pill bottles (or I suppose weed if that is your thing) or tiny fishing kits.

Well, how big are they?

a couple of ounces?

I have some little "energy" drink bottles, they are plastic, with a tight fitting lid, maybe 5 or 8 tablespoons.

I use them for fishing gear in my BOB
