DIY First Aid Kit - Protecting and Organizing Your Kit

Having your own home-made first aid kit allows you to include a lot of additional items for use in an emergency. This is an most important aspect of making your own first aid kit. To make it even more useful, you can take a few additional steps to make it even better in case you have an emergency.

In most emergencies, time is of the essence and anything you can do to save a little time will be extremely important. One of the best ways to save time is to keep your first aid kit organized. While using a coupon organizer  is great for the flat items such as bandages and splints, there are numerous other items that need to be protected and organized as well.

One of the most effective and efficient means of organizing and protecting those other needed items can be achieved quite simply. By using a small water-proof tackle box, you can get your first aid items organized and also give them additional protection. The compartments are ideal for storing cream medications in tubes, eye wash, etc. It will also protect your other first aid items should  a tube of cream or a small bottle of liquid develop a leak. In addition, if it gets dropped in the water or exposed to a heavy rain it will not ruin your day. They will even float!

Another plus for using the water-proof tackle boxes is that you can organize everything where it is readily and easily accessible in an emergency. This will save you time in an emergency.

Got organized protection for your DIY first aid kit?

Staying above the water line!
