I have been thinking of doing this but, there is no time. Also there are hardly anywhere nearby in my country where I can find non-perishable foods, is there a way to make them yourself? I can't wait to build my own home, I'm going to have an underground bunker.

I think non-perishable good were those canned foods, noodles and preserved foods. Correct me if I am wrong but that's what's on my mind. It is for survival so I think what I did mention can help. If you doesn't want processed foods like those in cans, try preserving foods which has a rubberized cover.

They did eventually expire. I understand what you mean. I wonder how people stock up on this goods and don't eventually use it, they have to discard it and get a new one.

I think we all keep almost all these items in our homes and few of these in our cars also although keeping them all in the car is not possible for me. As far non perishable food items are concerned we keep dry fruits and biscuits which are sufficient in case of an emergency. The water is always available in purifier’s storage tank.

Well, it can be consumed as the expiration date come closer. That's what we often do. Then buy another set of. stocks. It's good to be always prepared as you will need them in time.

These lists of survival kits are really needed and is very useful in many kinds of emergency scenarios. We don't know what might happen or when we are going to need these things, but preparing ahead of time is better rather than to be sorry later.

The list is quite exhaustive and very useful, thanks for sharing. We can use this as a checklist to prepare a survival kit.
Unfortunate events take place almost without any notice and only then we realize the importance of a survival kit. We should be prepared to face any disaster. But in reality we fail to become prepared to face any such unfortunate events and we live under the impression that we are always safe. But earth is only a small planet in the whole universe and anything can happen to anybody and at any time. Better be prepared.
