Pardon me for putting one of mine on here, but it's a great thread.

If you have a Dollar Store or something similar (Dollar Tree, etc.) in your area, do go and see all the stuff there you can add to your preps. 

I especially recommend the dollar can openers.  Get 10 and put them in each tub of your food preps, your BOB, your vehicle, and keep several at your BOL.  I was once lost in the woods overnight with canned food and no can opener.  That will never happen again; it's horrifying. 

You'd be surprised how many people will need a can opener when they're displaced from their home and the food is in cans.  A dollar can keep you alive.
