Welcome to week #25 in the “72 Hour Kit Ideas: A week by week approach” series.
This series is all about making it simple and do-able to get a 72 hour kit put together for you and your family.
Creating such a kit can be overwhelming and financially difficult to do all at once. But through this series, I’ve broken it down for you into 26 small steps! You can see all the steps here. Just take one small baby step each week and in 6 months you will have a well stocked, personalized kit!
You can even go through the series a few times over a year or two adding just the most basic supplies the first six months and then a few more “extra” supplies each time you cycle through it again.
This series is also available as an e-book. Purchasing the e-book gives you a few additional benefits over just reading the free series:
- Additional details and tips
- The ability to print the entire book!
- Pictures of my own kit showing just how I pack each week.

I hope all of you were able to organize and pack your kit last week.
Week #25: The List
So you now have three days’ worth of STUFF in a relatively small pack / bag. You likely will only open this pack occasionally to rotate through stuff. This will make it difficult to remember everything that is in it and just where you put it.
In the event that you actually need to use your survival kit in an emergency situation, it is likely that time will be of the essence. You may need to locate a certain first aid supply quickly or get a clean diaper or wipe for your child. Your family will be hungry and you don’t want to dig through / remove everything in your kit looking for the oatmeal packets you think you included!
So this week’s challenge is simple: make a list of everything in your kit!
Create an overall “master” list and note where each category is in your pack (front pocket? At the bottom? Near the top?). Then, put that list either at the very top of your pack or with your important documents folder.
