Our First Aid Kit
Our first aid kit has seen lots and lots of use, and not just by our family. Over the years it’s helped friends and fellow travelers all across the globe. It’s the first thing I reach for when packing and I never leave without it. I’ve even given quite a few as gifts. 🙂
Here’s what’s in our first aid kit:
As for the actual bag I store it all in, my favorite is from Target. It’s usually available in early summer and comes free with the purchase of three signed items (Band-Aids, Neosporin, etc.) I like it because it has lots of interior pockets for organizing, has a soft shell which helps prevent things from being crushed, and the exterior is easily wipeable. It’s also not too big or bulky.
This may seem excessive, but I’m not kidding you, this has saved the day on more than one occasion. Nothing takes the fun out of a day faster than a headache or skinned knee. It’s so much better to just be prepared than to stop everything and find supplies. Especially if you have to find supplies in a foreign country with a huge language barrier. (Been there.)
Bonus use – this particular first aid bag is also great for storing electrical adapters or small electronics and their chargers.
Do you travel with a first aid kit? If so, what’s in it? I’d love to know.
