Hi All. First legit post here (other than in the Intro forum)
I was just excited to share about my latest prep endeavor. One supply area that I was never happy with was my first aid supplies. I would buy 1 small item here or there, but never had it orderly or inventoried. I looked online at some pre-packaged EMS kits (ALS and BLS kits) and was blown away by the price. I always love how they list those kits by the number of supplies: "Over 350 Pieces!!!"...then 250 of them are just different sized bandaids. So, I set out to put together my own. It took a while....but I'm happy to say that for less than half the cost of those pre-packaged kits, I was able to put together a top notch Home/BO kit that rivals anything I had found online, as well as a kit for each vehicle AND 2 smaller kits that could be tossed in a backpack, range bag, or tackle box.
If you are in the spot I was in....don't be tempted to just drop maximum $$ on those pre-assembles kits. If you take the time and piece your kit together, you are going to be much happier...and have some cash left over to take the wife out for a nice dinner (or buy that bulk box of Lake City 5.56x45's).
Be good. Be safe.
