good stuff to have
Everyday stuff that I consider worth its weight in gold and a good add to any SHTF kit or bugoutbag.

zip ties, (cable ties) various lengths & widths
duct tape/100mph tape
carabiners, snap clips
wire cutters
galvanized wire
large zip-loc storage bags

Feel free to add to the list.

Remember the rule of three or redundancy. Always have a backup for your backup.

A pair and spare, that's what we called it in the Navy! ;)

Bug out bag ???
All great suggestions... but the one's I haven't seen listed so far that I have in my B.O.B.-
Boonie hat
work gloves
Silk head scarf or Shemagh
Bic lighter/matches
Canteen w/ metal cup
Water filter straw

Food stuff-
Bullion cubes
Ramon noodles
dried fruit
Nuts (cashews, sunflower seeds)

...and if you need them, extra pair of glasses. Keep any perscription meds handy too.

+1 on the medicines we need, and even contact solution, etc.

Bulgar wheat (a staple for packing. It is par boiled then dried back, so it is precooked and needs only to be rehydrated and heated by adding to boiling water or broth and then left to sit off the heat for ten or fifteen minutes)
Bullion cubes
Small packs of dried fruit
Small packs of dried vegetables
Small cook set
Lense wipes (the alcohol wipes double as fire starter)

I don't know how this'll work out (1st post from Android phone) salt,salt & more salt! But not in theBOB, @ the BO location!

Some of them thermal blankets that take up hardly any space is nice. And if you have no decent shelter if you have to really get out, you will die before you run out of water and food.

Beer and a fishing pole! :)
