Ok, boy and girls. This is my first VLOG, so ignore all the “uhhmmm”s and “basically”s and “good to go”s and pay attention to the information i’m throwing out at you. I failed to mention that there are plenty of packs and kits you can BUY pre-made. Everyone from Costco to the Red Cross have them.
I’m going to add links that I used, pictures and lists here on the blog, as my video editor is smarter than me and I need more time to learn all the basics.
I split the videos into
three four parts. Ugh!I had to link them from Youtube.
INTRO, KIDS PACK, ADULT PACK ADD ON and Missing Items, CONCLUSION.
Watch them all, because i’m super photogenic and I probably say something ignorant in all of them.
All joking aside, Emergency kits are important to have, and I clearly show that they can be done on a budget. So take notes and leave comments and then SHARE this with all your friends and family.
RedCross emergency kit list – This is what I used, adjust as needed.

I look a little different in the kids kit. I had to remake the vid. I go a little fast, I’m on a time limit, but I put most of the info down below.
You have to watch this one, it’s VERY TMMW
The black backpack we bought from the PX was $24.95, but I would suggest looking at thrift stores, ESPECIALLY if you have a post thrift where these types of packs can be found in large supply for super cheap.
