100 Items You Forgot To Put In Your Bug Out Bag

A bug out bag is never really complete. Not only do you have to rotate the food and batteries and make sure everything is still in working order, but you also have to ask yourself two questions:


1. Is there an item that would be better than the one I have?

For example, maybe you could find a water filter that’s smaller yet filters, even more, water.

2. Is there anything I forgot?

One way to do this is to read lists of bug out bag items and see if you notice anything you either hadn’t thought about or didn’t know about. The purpose of this post is to help you answer these questions.

Check out the 50 100 items and let me know if you actually already have these in your own bug out bag. If not, will you be putting them in? Let me know over on our Facebook page. Looking forward to hearing from you all.
