The Dollar Store Survival Bug Out Bag

Post by techman » Sun Oct 07, 2012 9:55 am

I am building the ultimate dollar store survival bug out bag. This bag will be set up using only dollar store items but is intended to contain everything one needs in order to bug out when the SHTF and survive for three to five days on foot.

Dollar stores contain lots of hidden survival treasures. Just browse your various local dollar stores and see what you can find. This will be fully functional survival and bug out bag. But it will only contain dollar store supplies.

Some of the survival items include food and water provisions. Medical supplies, tools and defensive equipment. Check out the dollar store survival videos and see the progress so far here:

Please contribute your ideas to the dollar store survival bug out bag. What would you include, take out or suggest?

Just recently returned from a dollar store survival shopping trip and got a bunch of nice items for a survival bag. Some good food items can be put away for long term storage as well. The dollar stores sometimes contain nice little hidden deals. Just look around and see what you can find.

Here are some of my recent dollar store survival items:

I would like to see a continuation of this. It would be cool to see a walmart BOB from you or an all new kit from a different dollar store. :D

I was just thinking about updating my survival bags and doing some more videos. I have the survival backpack and survival bug out bag.

"I just wanted to let you know what I'm up to, because there is no video. People are going to worry I got kidnapped or attacked by a bear or carried away by wolves and adopted into their family. They are going to worry I'm running through the forest in a loincloth eating grass."

I have a seen a few Harbor Freight BOB on youtube. It was interesting, but it's hard to get out of that store without buying too many things.
