Default 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
rope
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.

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
Jerky
Small packs of dried fruit
Small packs of dried vegetables
Small cook set
Lense wipes (the alcohol wipes double as fire starter)
Matches
Ammo

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.
