The DIY Survival Kit From Amazon

In the next few minutes, I’m going to show you the easiest way to build a survival kit from Amazon.

I’m sure most of you have heard of Amazon.

Assuming you know about Amazon I want to explain how and why Amazon became the best place to buy survival gear online.

As you know, Amazon started off as an online bookstore. After selling books, they started to sell smaller physical products online.

Over the years of selling more products than anyone else online, they’ve morphed into the #1 online store in the world. 50% off all products purchased online are bought from Amazon.

Insane to think isn’t it?

And that means they have an incredible power to make survival gear super affordable.

In the past few months, I’ve even discovered that if you use Amazon’s Prime membership you never pay for shipping on gear… and it gets you even better deals than before.

And that’s why I believe everyone should build their survival kit from Amazon.

Let me be upfront. Amazon doesn’t carry all the gear in the world. There are some solid survival products you simply can’t buy from Amazon. So when I see those products I’ll be sure to let you know.

However, I want to help you save money on survival gear so I’m going to outline a small list of survival gear you can find on Amazon and buy today at HUGE savings.

Check it out:

Why Amazon Prime is Perfect For Building a Cheap DIY Survival Kit From Amazon

Get Prime Here

The biggest reason to shop Amazon is their Amazon Prime service.

With Prime, you pay $99 a year and you get free shipping, free tv, free music, and tons of other things you’d usually pay big money for absolutely free.

For some, $99 might seem like a lot of money to spend on a service like Prime.

However, when you consider how other online stores make you spend $49 just to get free shipping you can see how Prime will save you money.

Imagine buying a $5 item every month that normally requires $5 shipping and having it shipped to your house for free. That alone will save you $60 a year.

In many cases, you can get items you’d normally buy at the store cheaper than the store price.

Plus they’ll be delivered to you in 1-3 days. Meaning you don’t have to even leave the house to get them.

And lastly, if you’re the kind of person who slowly adds to their bug out kit when money is available, Prime will help you save TONS in shipping costs.

Think about it. If you buy one item every month and spend an average of $7 in shipping you’re spending $72 in shipping just to get build your survival kit.

That’s crazy!

I’m using Prime all the time now and it’s already saved me more than $300 in 2017 alone!

Now, regardless if you decide to get Prime or not (follow this link to sign up) I wanted to show you the easiest DIY survival kit from Amazon imaginable.

I’ve hand selected the best gear at great prices. So even if you don’t get Prime, this will still help you save bookoo bucks.

The Ultimate DIY Amazon Survival Kit

1 – Bags:

People talk about bug out bags and survival kits all the time. Most times they simply talk about the gear that goes inside, not the bag itself.

The two best options are either a backpack or a duffel bag. Backpacks are great for longer bug outs, duffels are ideal for keeping in the trunk of your car or in a closet.

Here are the two I recommend along with their prices.

Click any of the pictures in the rest of the article and it’ll take you to Amazon so you can add it to your cart.


2 – Firestarters

If you can’t start a fire then you’re going to be SOL in a crisis. I recommend carrying two. A simple striking fire starter, like a magnesium striking rod as well as a windproof and waterproof lighter.

You should definitely look into learning how to make a fire without a firestarter to be ultimately prepared. However, putting a fires starter in your kit is a great idea.

I like magnesium rods because they’ll last forever and work in almost any conditions. They can be tricky so I recommend practicing lighting a fire with them first.

The Tesla lighter is a crazy cool fire starter and makes lighting a fire easier than saying Tesla. Press a button and it shoots jets of red-hot plasma out the top to start a fire. Both are great addition to a bug out bag.

3 – Water Purification

It should go without saying that if you want to stay alive longer than 3 days in a SHTF situation you have a way to clean water.

I love simple water filters that last a long time and don’t cost a lot. That’s why I recommend the Sawyer water filter. It gets rid of 99.9999% of dangerous pathogens and will filter up to 100,000 gallons of water.

The other water purification I recommend is iodine pills. Potable Aqua drops are a simple and no-brainer way to clean water in an instant.

Both are incredibly affordable and you won’t find better prices on them anywhere else!

4 – Knife:

If you ask some survivalists, a knife is the #1 tool to put in your survival kit from Amazon. A knife has more uses than I can count so it really comes down to what kind do you want to get?

I recommend a full tang blade like the M-Tech (similar to what’s used by the Marines) as well as a folding knife for everyday carry.

The two knives I listed below are amazing weapons and these are the best prices you’ll find anywhere on these high-quality blades.

5 – Emergency Warmth:

If you’re ever caught in a SHTF situation dying from exposure to the elements is one of the biggest things you need to worry about.

For that reason, you should have gear that keeps you warm when it’s cold as well as protects you from wind, sun, rain and more.

Fortunately, these supplies are easy to come by, cheap, lightweight and portable.

My recommendation is this, get an emergency sleeping bag and an emergency tent and you’re all set to go. These are some of the best products for a DIY survival kit from Amazon.

6 – Survival Food:

Rounding out the list of things to get for a DIY survival kit from Amazon is survival food. When most people buy survival food they’re forced to pay a lot in shipping because food is so heavy. That’s exactly why I recommend going to Amazon for survival food.

When it comes to survival food I advise you get a 72-hour supply as well a supply that lasts several months.

For the sake of putting a survival kit from Amazon together, I’ll limit the selections to the best tasting and best value 72-hour survival food.

Other Items For A Survival Kit From Amazon

The list I created is not in the least bit exhaustive.

To continue shopping there for more gear simply follow this link and then type “survival gear” and you’ll find all kinds of gear you can use to stay alive in a crisis.

I guarantee if you do most of your online shopping at Amazon you’ll save hundreds on the cost of survival gear in the future


Biden’s Reckless Election Stunt: Draining Strategic Reserves to Lower Gas Prices


In a desperate and ill-advised move, the Biden administration announced on Tuesday that it is releasing 1 million barrels of gasoline from a Northeast reserve established after Superstorm Sandy, ostensibly to lower prices at the pump this summer. This blatant attempt to manipulate gas prices ahead of the election underscores the administration’s willingness to jeopardize national security for political gain.

The gasoline will be sold from storage sites in New Jersey and Maine in increments of 100,000 barrels, creating a competitive bidding process to ensure it reaches local retailers ahead of the July 4 holiday. The Energy Department claims this will help “lower costs for American families and consumers,” but the real intention is clear: to curry favor with voters by artificially lowering gas prices.

The release follows a congressional mandate to sell off the 10-year-old Northeast reserve and close it. This reserve, established under President Obama, has never been used and costs about $19 million a year to maintain. Its sale, which provides only minimal relief during a severe shortage, highlights the administration’s short-sightedness and disregard for strategic planning.

Gasoline prices average about $3.60 per gallon nationwide, up 6 cents from a year ago, according to AAA. Tapping into the gasoline reserves is one of the few actions a president can take to control inflation, a major election year liability for the party in power.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated that the Biden administration is “laser-focused on lowering prices at the pump for American families.” However, this short-term solution ignores the primary purpose of strategic reserves: to provide emergency relief in times of severe national crises, not to manipulate market prices for political benefit.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre touted this release as part of Biden’s efforts to lower gas and energy costs, including historic releases from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) and investments in clean energy. Yet, Biden’s previous decision to drain the SPR in 2022, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, already pushed the stockpile to perilously low levels not seen since the 1980s. This reckless depletion of a critical national security asset for short-term political gain drew sharp criticism from Republicans.

Despite attempts to refill the SPR, it still stands at over 367 million barrels, significantly lower than pre-Russia-Ukraine war levels. This makes the U.S. vulnerable in the event of a true energy emergency, as the SPR is intended to be the nation’s emergency oil supply, not a tool for electioneering.

The release of the 42-million-gallon Northeast reserve, which must be transferred or delivered by June 30, is a misguided strategy that offers minimal impact on gasoline prices nationally. As analyst Patrick De Haan from GasBuddy points out, the reserve amounts to just 2.7 hours of total U.S. gasoline consumption, providing negligible relief.

This ill-conceived plan not only undermines the strategic purpose of the reserve but also sets a dangerous precedent of using emergency resources for political maneuvering. Biden’s actions highlight a disturbing trend of prioritizing political optics over national security and long-term stability.

Biden Authorized “Deadly Force” In Mar-a-Lago Raid


In an alarming display of federal overreach and political maneuvering, it has been revealed that Joe Biden’s administration was prepared to have his main political rival, Donald Trump, and his family killed as part of a dramatic publicity stunt.

On Tuesday, Judge Aileen Cannon unsealed a series of motions related to Jack Smith’s controversial classified documents case against Trump. Among the shocking revelations was the fact that Biden’s FBI authorized the use of deadly force during their raid on Mar-a-Lago in August 2022.

This brazen action by armed FBI agents, ready to confront Trump, demonstrates the extreme lengths to which Biden’s administration is willing to go. The filing stated: “Should FPOTUS [Trump] arrive at MAL [Mar-a-Lago], FBI MM EM and OSCs will be prepared to engage with FPOTUS and USSS Security Team.” Furthermore, it added, “Should USSS provide resistance or interfere with FBI timeline or accesses, FBI MM EM will engage with [redacted] and [redacted] will engage with USSS POC’s per existing liaison relationships.”

A chilling screenshot of the deadly force instructions outlined the conditions under which DOJ law enforcement officers could use deadly force: only when necessary, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury.

This unprecedented move comes after Biden paved the way for his Justice Department to arrest his political opponent by retroactively revoking Trump’s executive privilege. This revocation facilitated the subpoenaing of Trump, which in turn allowed the Justice Department to charge him with federal crimes.

Following the subpoena, federal agents arrived at Mar-a-Lago, retrieving documents and instructing the former president to add an extra lock to his storage locker. However, two months later, the FBI conducted a full-scale raid on Mar-a-Lago, ransacking Trump’s belongings without allowing his lawyers to be present.

The situation escalated when, in November 2022, Jack Smith was appointed special counsel to investigate the documents at Trump’s Florida residence. By June 2023, Trump faced an indictment on 37 counts related to Smith’s classified documents case, including charges of willful retention, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements.

This entire episode underscores the alarming extent of Biden’s politicization of the Justice Department and the dangerous precedent it sets for using federal power to target political opponents.

OUTRAGEOUS: Biden Offers Condolences to Dead Iranian President


In a move that defies common sense and American values, the Biden State Department issued an official message of condolences on Monday after learning of the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash. Raisi, notorious for leading “Death to America” chants and demonizing the U.S. at every turn, has been a symbol of Iran’s relentless hostility towards our nation.

Raisi’s deep-seated hatred for the United States is well-documented. Just this past February, during a rally where American and Israeli flags were burned in a grotesque spectacle, Raisi vehemently criticized the U.S. for supporting what he deceitfully labeled as “the Zionist regime’s crimes against humanity in Gaza.” His incendiary words stirred the crowd into chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,” as reported by The Free Beacon.

In a move that can only be described as a betrayal of American principles, the Biden administration extended its condolences. “The United States expresses its official condolences for the death of Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi, foreign minister [Hossein] Amir-Abdollahian, and other members of their delegation in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran,” State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said. He added, “As Iran selects a new president, we reaffirm our support for the Iranian people and their struggle for human rights and fundamental freedoms.”

This statement is not just perplexing; it is an outright disgrace. Raisi, infamously known as “the Butcher of Tehran,” was one of the architects of the 1988 massacre in Iran, where around 5,000 regime opponents were mercilessly executed. As a member of the regime’s “death committee,” Raisi was instrumental in issuing death sentences to scores of political opponents, cementing his legacy as a ruthless enforcer of the regime’s brutality.

In 2019, Raisi was rightly sanctioned by the U.S. government for his involvement in decades of mass human rights abuses. Despite these sanctions and Raisi’s clear anti-American stance, the Biden administration’s conciliatory tone is both alarming and indefensible.

This move epitomizes a dangerous and cowardly appeasement strategy, reminiscent of the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal. By offering condolences to a regime leader with such a blood-soaked history, the Biden administration not only betrays American values but also risks emboldening hostile regimes. This episode starkly highlights the administration’s weak and inconsistent foreign policy approach, particularly towards malevolent actors like Iran.

The Biden administration’s failure to confront evil and defend American principles on the global stage is a glaring reminder of its inadequacy. This incident demands a reevaluation of the U.S. stance on Iran, emphasizing the urgent need for a firm and resolute policy that unapologetically prioritizes American interests and holds oppressive regimes accountable for their atrocities. We must stand strong against tyranny, not offer condolences to its leaders.
