    Me! I have one in our home and one in my car. The emergency kit in my car is one I bought at REI that has water adn “food” blocks.. I’ve been temted to taste the bars to see what they’re like. I’ll open one up before they expire. I also stash jerky and trail mix in my car’s emergency kit, but I dip into that a lot and I’m always replenshing!

    I’ve been meaning to start one but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Considering that I live in the SF Bay Area, i REALLY need to get on that soon. I always think about it whenever I shop at the commissary and see the MREs. I’ll have to pick some up next time I go.

    I am crazy about emergency kits. I have one in our house and one in our car. I also keep a bag of essentials in my purse at all times!

    We get a ton of snow in the winter time, so in my truck I usually keep extra snow pants, hats, mitts, scarves, blankets, shovel, and granola bars.

    @tea: Just by one at REI, it’s about the same cost as making your own 🙂

    we have one in the house but need to make one for the car (SO was in the car when the earthquake hit so it made him think about it). Walmart has a really good first aid kit for about $10 everyone should have one we have used it many times
