First off – I am not even remotely suggesting that $5.00 is going to get you any level of comfort when it comes to preparation. The point of this post is merely to see what $5.00 can get you. So many of us are on a budget and if I bring forth one idea – and several of you suggest some others – now we are getting somewhere!
So – for me the best preparedness item you can buy for $5.00 is a pack of Bic lighters. Think about it: five full sized Bic lighters can be used to start many, many fires. I know many people have all kinds of ways to start a fire – I have dozens of these which would last many years.
So – what is your opinion? What preparedness item out there would you suggest is a great way to spend $5.00 on?
