Ok now that we have our bug out bag squared away we need to start talking about items to put inside of it. Let’s start with two of the most basic yet most important items. The items we need covering water filtration and fire building. Sounds pretty easy right? Fortunately these items aren’t too bad in price however it is important to know what products work best and what inexpensive additional items will be huge force multipliers for achieving the task. Some of the information may be rather shocking and some of the products may not be as such of a good deal as they seem. Water filters really fit that category. Do you need an expensive filter system like a Katadyn, or is a Lifestraw plenty? Well discuss what items are best and why here on Dirt Cheap Preppers.
