$10 Preparedness: First Aid

One of the things I have been trying to do in the last few months is a $10 preparedness challenge. I have mostly been challenging myself and proving to myself that anyone on a budget could prep. I have been budgeting $10 every pay period (bi-weekly) to use towards preps.

Preps can be anything! Prepping has many, many areas. If you don't want to be considered a prepper, you still need things to be ready for any emergency or disaster.

This particular challenge had me concentrating on what I would consider to be a good start to a first aid kit. I have a couple kits already so this would be additional items to have on hand for me or to start another kit for one of my kids. Either way, you should still have these basics on hand.

This prepping challenge took me to Dollar General and I concentrated on a First Aid essentials. This is what I purchased:

Hydrogen Peroxide    $1.00
Cloth Tape      $2.00
Non Stick pads      $2.35
Triple Antibiotic Ointment   $2.50
Gauze pads     $1.00
Band Aids       $1.00
Total     $9.85

This is what I would consider to be a very basic kit or a good start to one. For $10, you can get a lot!
Of course, in the future, I would add to this.

What can you buy for $10 for your prepping needs?

Thanks for reading!
