The Stay-in Bin

Posted on 2022-10-11

Most of us will stay at home in a crisis, so we don’t need a Bug-out Bag; we need a Stay-in Bin. This is just the basics.

  • Protein sources: tuna, Spam, salmon, other canned/pouch meats
  • Fat sources: olive oil (healthiest of the oils), mixed nuts
  • Carb sources: canned or dried fruits and vegetables
  • Coffee: you get 15 times as many cups per ounce from instant as from grounds
  • Garlic: strong anti-inflammatory, keeps colds at bay, adds interest to food
  • Dark chocolate: anti-oxidant, feel-good treat
  • Vitamins: at minimum, C, D3, zinc and quercetin
  • First Aid kit, supplemented by Neosporin, Advil and Advil PM
  • Lifestraw: water purification (also Katadyn or Sawyer)
  • Heavy duty Hefty bags: sanitation
  • Pocket knife or multi-tool
  • Duct tape: 101 uses
  • Tactical flashlight
  • Portable radio, AM/FM at least (crank style is good option)
  • Batteries
  • Sewing kit 
  • Toilet paper, and torn-apart t-shirts for re-useable “sanitation cloths
  • Plastic drop cloths: for catching rain, sealing gaps in doors and windows
  • Binder clips: modern man’s answer to clothespins
  • Bleach: disinfectant, water purification
  • Lighter: for your portable stove, sterilizing needles
  • Cash: it may still have some value
  • Large storage bin: can be used with plastic sheet for rainwater collection
