Emergency Car Kit/Get-Home Bag/Convenience

A Listmania! list by Affordable Prepper (Georgia)
The list author says: "I originally started by creating a bug-out bag. it was a massive 35+ lb backpacking bag that was completely impractical. I decided to create this bag. Smaller, lighter, more affordable, and much more practical. As I keep it in my car/bug-out vehicle, I feel prepared for everything from a dead car battery to a more severe bug-out/get-home situation. Other items to include: cash in small denominations, prescription medication, additional ammunition/magazine if you carry a gun, anything you feel that you would need or want in a pinch. Not everything in this kit is only for survival. I have placed items in my kit that are for convenience that I use/plan on using on a daily basis that I would also want in an emergency situation. Add/subtract items as YOU deem necessary."
