23 Must-Have Kitchen Items For Any Survivalist Or Prepper


1. Matches

If you don't smoke, why on earth would you need matches? Well, if you're going to learn to cook like granny, that will probably include cooking on top of a wood heat stove or on a wood cook stove with an oven. I know there are ways to start a fire with a magnifying glass, some straw and some kindling, but believe me, matches are easier.

If you're really good at starting and keeping a fire throughout the three daily meals, you could use as little as one match a day. If you're not, 20 may not be enough. We have found that the most economical matches are book matches, like you get with a pack of cigarettes. They come in a box of 50 books, 20 matches per book, for about $1.50 in many stores. That's a lot of lights for cheap. Wooden kitchen matches go for about $3.50 for 250 matches. See the difference? When you're living off the grid, every penny counts.
