Over the years different illnesses and medical conditions in our home have left us with a cupboard full of empty UNRECYCLABLE prescription bottles. Since our recycling center doesn’t accept this kind of plastic and our pharmacy doesn’t recycle or reuse them either, I decided to do some research and figure out ways I could repurpose them into other useful objects. Important note: Before reusing any empty prescription bottle, take off the labels, so no one has access to your personal information, then clean and sanitize the bottles thoroughly. Keep matches and other necessities dry while you brave the wild: camping, boating, or just for a day at the beach. I don’t know about you, but I find myself flossing in the car more than any other place! My son Kell has had Type 1 Diabetes since he was 2 years old and so we have ALWAYS made sure to have some emergency snacks on hand in case of low blood sugars. Prescription bottles are just the right size and shape for a sewing needle, a small spool or two, a few straight pins, and a few plain buttons. Have one in the car, purse or office drawer.
Collect the seeds at the end of the growing season and store them neatly in small pill bottles. Line old prescription bottles with inexpensive baggies and use them for condiment containers for bagged lunches. If you wear perfume and don’t want to bring the whole bottle with you in your purse but like to freshen up at midday, try this:  soak a cotton ball or two with your favorite cologne or perfume, place them inside a small bottle and close with the cap. Check with your local free clinic or veterinarian’s office to see if they accept used prescription bottles. Some of them will reuse them for filling prescriptions.
1) Electrical: I put my wire nuts by color in them and then use a colored Sharpie to color the white cap to match the size. 4) All Trades use drills so by putting the SMALLER sized drill bits in the small vile and the LARGE ones in taller ones so they are NOT always getting lost in the tool box as with all the above items.

I raided the dollar bins at various retail stores.  I found these jeweled compact mirrors and eye masks for $1.50 each at Michael’s!
You can also buy things that come with several pieces and then break them up in packages to save money.  I did that with the hairbands, gum, aspirin, bra clips, and invisible tape.
The FREE printables come with Girls Weekend labels, including an “in case of an emergency”, “sweet treats”, “extra hairbands”, and “hangover relief”. The small labels will fit a two inch plastic bag, the medium will fit a three inch plastic bag, and the large labels will fit a four inch plastic bag. Whether you are prepping for the zombie apocalypse or the aftermath of a hurricane, self-defense is an important aspect of surviving any disaster. However, a rifle should only be part of what many preppers refer to as a layered defense system.
Ultimately, the choice comes down to your own personal preferences and needs, as there is no such thing as the perfect survival rifle. The semi-automatic AR-15 was designed by Armalite, who then sold the design to Colt in the early 1960s. One of the best start-up AR-15s for survival purposes is the DPMS Sportical, which will only set you back about $700. The rifle has seen action all around the globe and is praised for its ability to withstand use and abuse in nearly any terrain, conditions, or combat scenario. That’s because unlike most modern-day tactical rifles, the 60-year old design of the AK employs loosely fitting moving parts that give it the ability to sustain abuse.
Though AK-47 is commonly considered a “bad guy” gun, the stereotype attached to it in normal times may come as an advantage during a disaster. Designed as a more compact and lightweighted version of the M1 Garand, a WWII infantry staple, the M1 Carbine was an incredibly versatile rifle that had high effect and tremendous accuracy, especially at mid-range. A modern take on the M1 Carbine, the AOM130, is available from Auto Ordinance for about $800. Unfortunately, the original models from WWII and Korea are getting harder to come by, which is unfortunate given the fact that even the old ones are still battle-ready anytime. One of the biggest advantages of a .22-rimfire long rifle is the abundance and affordability of ammunition. In addition to its sheer stopping power, the rifle classic employs a classic walnut and stainless steel design that’s both aesthetically pleasing and practical for battling against corrosion in rough weather.


The gun needed to be compact, lightweighted, and capable of taking down both wild game and enemy combatants with reliability and accuracy. To that tune, the US military adopted the Springfield Armory M6 Scout as their rifle of choice for aircraft pilots.
Though the Scout could still be considered a good survival rifle today, a more modern take on the survival rifle can be found in the form of the Henry Arms AR-7. The rifle comes with two 8-round magazines for chambering .22 LR ammunition, which is one of the best and most readily available all-purpose survival rounds. The rifles featured above by no means constitute a comprehensive list of the best all-purpose survival rifles. If you want to have the best chances of surviving a disaster scenario you must equip yourself with a firearm that you feel comfortable shooting at both two-legged and four-legged targets to protect and provide for yourself. The selections above were chosen for their popularity, versatility, affordability, and ability to be handled by shooters of all levels.

7 times out of 10 a (insert your favorite caliber here) handgun is the perfect survival tool, but it is NOT "easy" to get! I live in the great free state, that believes that if you make it harder for law abiding citizens to own guns the criminals won't have any. Handgun, and if I could find one of the origional ones,would have to move out of state to buy it. I've had a score of traffic tickets and warnings issued to me, sitting in the cop';s car, wearing a pistol that was a felony for me to possess in such a manner .
If I'm lugging around a longarm (possible exception of a Marlin Papoose .22lr) it's not going to be limited by using a pistol caliber. Actually, when talking about a long range survival situation, the only time you would want to have two weapons that shoot the exact same ammunition is if they were the exact same weapon, so that if one became inoperable, you could use it for parts to keep the other weapon operating. I think I would like to have (a bunch) of guys with the same weapon, but mostly able to use the same amm, rather than a variety - even my 'snipers'. But I got a question for readers, since I don't own a gun yet, other than a pellet rifle [RWS 56] (which may explain why my focus is more on escape and evasion). Obviously your actual violent combat police, or other tactical experience is quite limited, if you have any at all. So by your analysis, Hoff, what are you going to do, when a couple 'extremely' suspicious cars come creeping down your driveway, stop periodically, and unass a couple ugly looking zombs with weapons to start to flank your house and continue driving toward your house at the same time? While there is never anything wrong with having multiple guns, and in a military tactical situation, it is an advantage to have different equipment to suit different applications, but for all the practical purposes this won't apply to the average citizen, even in an all out state of anarchy and chaos. If it's a matter of money, The money spent on all those extra guns is better spent on a duplicate of your primary, more ammo and mags, and some other 'stuff', which would be much more valuable for self protection and 'helping' you in a firefight, than a rack full of guns sitting there that they'll just take anyway after they mob and kill you.
Please be careful about where you place these reused prescription bottles and your real ones. If a button comes loose or a hem unravels the kit is handy and the pins are tucked safely inside where no one can get pricked when not in use. The bottle rolls around and is light enough not to cause harm to the kitten, cat or furniture it might be rolled into. By midday the cotton ball will still be wet and can be dabbed to the areas you spritz with perfume. So, call around in your area to see if vets will take your bottles, or if any free clinics need them. Saves Time searching as well saves MONEY$ not having to run to the store to buy a new just to find the one the one you couldn’t later which you ALWAYS END UP DOING 5 min.
Instead of putting your key under the mat or above the door, put the key in a pill bottle, seal it, and add some grass or hot glue a small pine cone to the top! Should you require your item urgently or for a set delivery date, please contact us either before or immediately after ordering.

Your source for creative inspiration for theme parties, home decor, DIY home improvement and DIY ideas. It doesn’t matter if you are bugging out or sheltering, your need to arm yourself with a variety of weaponry, self-defense skills and training is the same. However, the options and varieties when it comes to choosing a survival rifle are nearly endless and even the most avid shooters and preppers struggle to choose a favorite.
Below we will feature a handful of rifles that are commonly considered to be among the best all-purpose firearms to have on hand when SHTF. AR-15 – The AR-15, which is manufactured by dozens of individual companies and comes in a variety of styles, is one of the most widely used rifles in the world. The updated fully-automatic Colt AR-15 became the standard infantry weapon of the US Military and has since become a favorite in military, law enforcement, and civilian communities alike.
Both Armalite and Colt still produce semi-automatic versions of the AR for civilian purchase, but other popular manufacturers include DPMS, Smith & Wesson, Remington, and Bushmaster. AK-47 – Like the AR-15, the AK-47 is one of the most popular rifles in the world, and easily one of the most widely recognized.
An AK-47 can be submerged in water or mud, go through a sandstorm, or fall off a cliff and still fire without fail. The tradeoff is relatively mediocre accuracy, but a 30-round magazine of 7.62x39mm rounds should be more than enough to hit your target in a survival standoff. M1 Carbine – Though it hasn’t seen active duty in combat since Vietnam, the M1 Carbine was for years considered to be one of the best combat rifles in the world. The standard comes with a 15-round magazine of .30-caliber rounds, which aren’t the best for taking down targets at a distance, but serve their purpose at closer ranges and in hunting scenarios.


The rifle, made in the USA at Kahr Arm’s Worcester, MA plant, weighs in at just 5.4-pounds and features an 18-inch barrel and traditional walnut stock. However, .30-caliber ammo is becoming increasingly more expensive and harder to come across giving the M1 Carbine what is probably its only disadvantage as a modern-day survival rifle.
The .22-caliber rimfire ammunition doesn’t deliver any kickback or recoil, but can hit targets at 100-yards with deadly precision and ease. This will allow you to enjoy endless days of target shooting before SHTF and the opportunity to stockpile plenty of backup rounds to have on hand when disaster strikes. Marlin 1985 GS – If you want a compact rifle with big stopping power that will take down nearly any type of game in any kind of whether, look no further than the lever-action Marlin 1985 GS. Whether you’re up against a mob of angry looters, zombies, or a wild bear, the Marlin 1985 GS will have no problem mowing down anything in its path.
The rifle starts at about $650, a reasonable price to pay for a rifle that’s guaranteed to put food on the table and stop enemies in their tracks when the going gets rough. Henry Arms AR-7 – The term “survival rifle” was originally designated for those guns designed to be carried in the cockpits of military aircraft when a pilot was shot down in enemy territory.
The AR-7 weighs a mere 3.5-pounds and measures just 16-5-inches when broken down, making it ideal for concealed carry in a bug out bag, vehicle, or even underneath your jacket.
The gun will only cost you about $280 and can serve as either your primary or backup survival rifle. There is a nearly unlimited array of options to choose from, each of which have their advocates and serve various needs in the military, law enforcement, hunting, and target shooting community. The choice comes down to you, but in the end the best survival rifle is the one you have with you, the one you have ammo for, and the one you’re trained to shoot effectively. While it is good to own a hand gun, it is to be used only when your rifle or shotgun fails. If you pay attention to what it is and how you carry it, nobody else will ever know that you have one, much less ccw it.
While they average the same price in today's market, if you shop carefully you can easily assemble an AR for 100 bucks less than you can get a Saiga for. Put the cap on and place in a drawer to keep clothes smelling fresh without risking stains on your clothes.
I’ve taken the larger 90 day bottles, cut off the bottle necks and used them for seedling containers.
We use Royal Mail’s Special Delivery before 1pm service which requires a signature upon arrival. AND I decided to make a Bachelorette Party Favor FREE Printable that is perfect for survival kit for a weekend getaway. Formerly an educator at CSUF and business owner, she now is a full time writer, Curator for Style Me Pretty Living, Real Simple Lifestyler, and a member of Martha’s Circle. History has proven the rifle to be the best all-purpose firearm to face a variety of combat and self-defense scenarios. With that said, if you could have only one firearm in a survival situation it should be a quality rifle. Like most ARs, it can be upgraded with an endless array of accessories to suit your post-disaster survival needs. If not, the sheer intimidation of the gun’s appearance and rate of fire will be enough to send a clear message to your attacker not to mess with you. AKs are great considerations for preppers on a budget who want to send a clear message to anyone who tries to harm them when SHTF. Others believe basic is better and consider the .22-caliber Long Rifle (LR) to be the best and the only rifle you need to survive any disaster. The carbine-style rifle comes in stock with a 10-round rotary magazine that sits flush with the stock of the gun, helping to give it a lower profile and more comfortable carry. Fortunately, ammo costs shouldn’t be much of a concern to begin with, as the gun itself will only set you back a couple hundred bucks. Despite the appearance of a menacing big-game hunter, which is indeed, the 1985 GS only measures 37-inches overall and weighs just 7-pounds. You either need to be extremely lucky to have your permit approved, have a sitting Judge as a golfing buddy, or risk arrest by getting one illegally. A hand gun is a last resort at really close range, while your rifle and or shotgun is to keep the threat at bay.
Bolt action because it's more reliable and lower maintenance, especially when you are in the boonies far from a gun store (or all the gun stores have long been looted), and, "Red Dawn" fantasies aside, you are going to want to avoid tactical situations that require rapid fire and high capacity if you want to survive long in a SHTF scenario.
Don’t overpack the dirt in them and you can gently ease out the plant for transplanting. I also wanted to put together some fun ideas for DIY bachelorette party favor ideas for you.
From there you can customize and accessorize your Ruger to suit your specific survival needs. I'm surprised that no one mentioned the SKS as a very dependable rifle, more durable than an AK47 anyday.
Just in case have you're 12 gauge ready to go with a case of shells and a Remington 16 gauge.
The black bag is adorned with the Chinese symbol for good luck and the Coral bag is embellished with a horseshoe for good luck . I am not saying that this is my opinion of the best rifle to own but cheap and dependable and better also at close range or CQB.
