I thought it would be fun to use it as a survival tin, as I had done a while back with my pocket sized first aid kit.

Recently, I saw a link on Survival Blog on the same topic with Jim Rawles saying if you’re going to do this, you must cover the entire match with nail polish.

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com Since many city dwellers spend a lot of time in their cars, it makes sense to keep a well stocked emergency kit.
