Here’s Canadian Prepper with a run-down of 13 (actually 15) unconventional items for your bugout bag or emergency kit. Most of these items are either inexpensive or you may have them already laying around at home!
Nails have an incredible number of uses and are very cheap. Packing a few large nails gives
2. Contractor bag
A heavy gauge black garbage bag such as the “Husky” can be used for countless purposes. They can be cut open to create a fairly good sized plastic sheet.
A survival essential. Saline is used for wound cleaning and of course salt has electrolytes that are essential for survival.
4. Binoculars / Monocular
The most expensive item on the list, however you can get some pretty good ones for $20-$30 these days. Look for a larger objective lens diameter as this is possibly more important than the magnification. Night vision monoculars are
5. Caffeine Pills
If you are exhausted, a caffeine pill can keep you going for a while in a situation where you need that extra energy to push through or simply stay awake.
Hard knuckle tactical gloves are an essential. Protecting the hands against cuts and other injuries is mission critical in a survival situation.
Freeing up both hands to see what you are doing can be extremely important in some circumstances.
8. Proof of ID
Your ID is of course an essential for travel and entry into certain restricted areas. Post-collapse, the ability to know who is who could be very valuable.
9. Breaching tools
Controversial – and I personally won’t recommend them for the obvious reason that they could be problematic in a stop ‘n’ search – but it’s undeniable that tools such as small bolt cutters and lockpicking tools can be especially useful in SHTF.
10. Physical Maps
GPS is great but if the infrastructure is out of commission, it becomes useless. A map is completely “self contained” and gives greater self reliance.
11. Toilet Paper Tablets
These pack extremely small and have a ton of uses.
12. A Good Saw
Folding saws are very efficient for dealing with firewood and much, much faster than using an axe.
Pick up some camouflage fabric and you have something you can deploy quickly to blend in to the wilderness.
14. Survival Shovel
A folding survival shovel is compact and has a ton of uses.
CP recommends Titan Survivorcord and believes it superior to regular 550 paracord.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions.
