Prepping on the Run: 5 Survival Items to Grab Before You Leave the House

Prepping on the Run: 5 Survival Items to Grab Before You Leave the House

There is no shortage of doomsday hypotheses out there. Possible scenarios include a catastrophic weather event on a global scale, overpopulation and lack of resources, solar flares, a meteor strike, a virus epidemic, nuclear fallout, and so on. Even a zombie apocalypse is on the list, although a bit further down than the rest. 


So if the human population faces imminent extinction on multiple fronts, then it only makes sense that people begin to take control of the situation. Creating a survival pack is the first step to D-day preparation.

There are multiple items around your house that can be extremely useful and versatile in a survival situation.

Coffee Filters
Maybe not the first thing you think of when considering life after society, but it should be. Coffee filters can be used to filtrate water. A human cannot survive without water or food for more than 8 to 21 days, according to a German study. So be sure to stock up on filters.

Books
While carrying around books in your bug out kit isn't ideal, they can be valuable tools in multiple occasions. Great for fire tinder as well as toilet paper if necessary (just don't choose a Ray Bradbury novel). 

Chapstick
Besides keeping your lips dry, chapstick can be handy in various situations. It can be used as a candle, a lubricant, fire starter, and can even stop cuts from bleeding. 

Dental Floss
While your dentist might appreciate you flossing in this situation, floss can be used for much more than just your teeth. It can make great a great fishing line, snare, clothesline, and you could even use it to stitch a wound if it came down to it. 

Pantyhose
Even though it may seem ridiculous, pantyhose can be one of the most useful items in your survival bug out bag. Pantyhose can be worn to prevent blisters, used as a mosquito net, help keep you warm, bug bite protection, and even as a tourniquet. 


If you're sitting there thinking that you'll never pack any of these items into your emergency kit, then don't worry. There are plenty of survival kits for sale that will come prepacked for you with everything that you'll need in an emergency.

The important thing is to be prepared when the time comes.
