$1,000 SURVIVAL SUPPLIES PACKAGE

If you only have a budget of $1,000 to spend on survival supplies, but you don't know what to get or how to prioritize, you can use this list as a reference.  This list would be for a complete collapse of society and you are bugging out to a temperate wilderness location.  This list is only for one person though, so you'll need to adjust your personal list accordingly.  You could easily spend tens of thousands on survival supplies, but if you only spend $1,000 on the right items and have some survival know-how, I think your chances of survival are in the 90% range.  Good luck!
