Water is the most necessary item to have stored! You can last without food for much longer then you can last without water. Make sure you stress the importance of water storage as you help people get started. Whichever option you choose, don’t forget to add your Day 3 Tag!
Options that are Free or Under $1
Water in Juice/Pop Jugs
Did you know you can store water in Pop or Juice bottles. This a great little token to give someone to help them get started. Put a ribbon around it and add your Day 3 Tag to make it cute. Make sure you don’t use empty milk jugs – the plastic in milk jugs will deteriorate.
An Option that is $5-$30
While we DEFINITELY recommend STORING water, we have found that it’s a good idea to have a way to clean water in case you run out or to get extra for washing dishes or other things. Check out these inexpensive water filtration bottles or water filtration straws as a possible gift idea.
A really neat way to store water in tight places or to use for a grab and go kit is the Water Brick. You can stack them and store them inside or outside. Attach a ribbon and your Day 3 Tag and you’ll be all set. (Note: If you are buying multiple WaterBricks it can be cheaper to buy them from our store instead)
A More Expensive Option
