Thanks for the link Sharon! If there was other stuff I could add, I'd probably start putting things like OTC medications like Pepto Bismol, antacids, Tylenol, but I tried to stay focused on items with a long-shelf life. (You can guess that I had a need to Pepto Bismol this week and realized I didn't have any in my first aid kit!)
