C-Note Preparedness Challenge: How Much Will $100 Buy You?

C-Note Preparedness Challenge : What preparedness items can you score for $100?

In this day and age a $100 just doesn’t seem to go very far. I was recently looking through my medical supplies, which was running a little low. I thought it would be fun to do this C-Note Preparedness Challenge and see just how much we could purchase and how far we could go with our preps. I went down the local discount grocer and actually negotiated some of the prices. Here is what I got:


  • 8 boxes of BC Aspirin
  • 6 Rolls of Shop Towel
  • 10 Bottles of Hand sanitizer
  • 6 Packets (2ea) of Super Glue
  • 71  Candles (3hr burn)
  • 6 packets of 12hour candles (48 total)
  • 11 cans of tuna
  • 4 tubes of Chorizo
  • 12 packs of Halls Cough Drops
  • 6 packets of Advil
  • 4 boxes of season
  • 1 Large can of Collard Greens
  • 2 Boxes of Alka Seltzer
  • 18 Hardboiled eggs (going to pickle)

There you have it! Not bad for a $100! Your turn, what can you find???
