Dollar Tree prepping survival items to stockpile get cheap outdoor gear whether you’re planning for emergencies or you’re a hardcore prepper you want to make sure you always have what you need and get it CHEAP!
Here are some suggestions on things that I like to stockpile when I go to the Dollar Tree store, these are items you would need to make sure that you could continue to live the life that you have – if the world goes south tomorrow. Prepping is “lifestyle maintenance insurance” so you want to make sure you have the things you need.
The first category of Dollar Tree items for stockpiling would be fire starting items, make sure that you start with cotton balls and Vaseline petroleum jelly as they make the easiest firestarter solution just rub a cotton ball with Vaseline petroleum jelly fluff it up and you can start all kinds of fires with just those two items.
Make sure you have matches lighters and utility lighters these are all items that you can find in single and multi-packs at the Dollar Tree store.
Next go head over to the candle aisle, they have lots of different sizes and styles of candles at Dollar Tree so find the candles that suit your emergency survival needs, do you want candles just for basic lights do you want to use several of the small tea light candles to heat something up to eat, decide what uses you have and choose the candles according to your needs because there is a huge variety.
One of the suggestions I have is look for candles that are scent free, no scent candles are best if you’re going to use them for cooking you don’t want added aromas of flowers and things to contaminate the foods that you’re eating plus in some kind of emergency situations you don’t want the scent from candles maybe alerting someone where you are plus people with allergies just don’t necessarily care for all of the aromas.
Look for cans of Sterno like emergency cooking fuel you can light with a match or lighter and you have two hours of cooking fuel look also for the little battery operated candles those are safe to keep in your car safe to use around children, these are a great addition to your emergency bug out bag.
If you’re stockpiling canned foods make sure you have can openers, the Dollar Tree stores have several different kinds, check out the can openers that are most comfortable for you to use.
Think about basic hygiene, you want to have some bars of soap, hand sanitizers, and antibacterial soaps. Grab some baby wipes make sure to get a bottle or 10 of bleach, you can use bleach to sanitize or to purify water just remember bleach has many survival uses and never goes bad just keep it tightly sealed.
Look for basic prepping survival emergency supply things like a little sewing kit in hard times being able to maintain the clothing that you have is more important than ever the little Dollar Tree sewing kits at only $1 include a whole variety of needles and threads and even a measuring tape and scissors
Make sure you have the basics of pens, pencils sharpeners, and scissors. If you’ve ever traveled to places like Africa they never have enough things like pens pencils scissors and pencil sharpeners.
There’s an entire aisle of first-aid supplies at dollar tree stores check it out if you have gaps and needs in your first-aid supplies buy some over-the-counter medicines and things like band-aids ointments and lotions all kinds.
Look for simple tools and clothespins, one of the things that I was buying today was cable ties or zip ties they are extremely handy and come in multiple sizes and colors, you can use them for all kinds of tasks.
Get Multi-packs of batteries to be prepared in case you lose power and bottled water in the event your water supply is interrupted.
Stock up on some paper plates some plastic spoons knives and forks and make sure you always have an extra bottle of dishwashing soap.
Look for Reynolds Wrap on a roll or the pop-up foil sheets the Reynolds wrappers foil sheets are perfect for making foil packet meals. Remember prepping is lifestyle insurance so you want to make sure that you always have on hand the supplies that you could not live without.
