March 2019 SHTF Survival Subscription Box

Admission: I’m one of those crazy folks that likes to prep for the apocalypse lol. Whether it be an economic collapse, climate change fallout, war, grid breakdown, or natural disaster, I want to be prepared, so I decided to try a new subscription box called SHTF Survival. This was my first box from them. Almost $60 worth of stuff for $20, so not bad:


Included in this month’s box:
First Aid Emergency Tourniquet – $9.99 (retail)
USMC Pocket Knife – $19.99
12 in 1 Octopus Keychain – $6.99
7 in 1 Whistle Compass – $6.99
Bug Out Solar Lighter – $4.99
Gun Sock – $9.99

I must admit I was hoping more for stuff like survival food, but some of this stuff was neat. The pocket knife is really good quality. The tourniquet could certainly come in handy in an emergency, as could the solar lighter, the whistle/compass/thermometer combo, and the octopus keychain which can do everything from opening a bottle to working as a screwdriver of many sizes and types and even adjust bicycle spokes (even though I don’t have a bicycle lol).

I think sometimes that being chronically ill makes me feel even more vulnerable were there a catastrophe of any kind, so trying to be prepared for worst case scenarios can make me feel a wee bit better. Honestly, I don’t know how to hunt or do much of anything outdoorsy even if I were healthy enough to do it, but luckily my husband does have those skills ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hey, whatever makes you feel comforted and protected, I say go for it. My ex-husband used to be that way. Our house was filled with all types of registered guns and enough ammo to protect us. All of which was stored a locked safe. (Hell, we had four locked safes in my house). He even took me to the shooting range on many occasions, and I can say this honestly… I have pretty good skills. LOL!

    1. We only have one shotgun (my husband’s), we don’t hoard guns and ammunition. We are considering getting a handgun too for protection. The main reason we haven’t is just that my husband worries about having that stuff around when I hit extreme depressions, but I’ve never actually attempted to kill myself thankfully.

      1. Well, This was back in the early 90’s and since then, I don’t have any of them. I guess they were sold off after my ex passed away.
        Thankfully, I wasn’t near them back in 2015. I was suicidal, and thoughts of purchasing a gun back then was a serious thought. I am so thankful I don’t feel that way now! ๐Ÿ˜Š
