A myth that continues to propagate among newbie preppers is that you need a lot of money to get started. Not true, and the culprit for that misconception is that everyone is so focused on tools, gear and a stockpile. Sure, knives, multi-tools, even the smallest lighter comes at a price.
But what if I told you that some of the items that go into your survival bags (whether it’s bug-out bag, INCH bag, get-home bag and even your everyday carry) are completely FREE? OK, so I’m playing a little dirty — you already have some of these things at home — but who cares, right? The main thing is that you include them in your survival bags…
A bug out bag shouldn’t have more than half a gallon of water. Around one liter (or .3 gallons) will suffice, otherwise you’re going to break your back carrying it for miles on end if you plan to bug out on foot.
OK, so water isn’t completely free. Your bill will increase by half a cent but, if you really really want to, you can find free, drinkable clean water. Wells and springs are good sources or you could just fill the bottle the next time you go to your local gym.
