There are so many small things you’ll want to have in your long-run survival kit that we can’t possibly name them all.

Once you’ve gotten yourself situated in your Fortress of Humanity you’re going to want to keep that baby around for as long as possible. With all of the chaos and uncertainty of a zombie apocalypse, you definitely don’t want to have to worry about your refuge burning down. After all, there won’t be a fire department to call on if something bad happens. That’s why it’s a great idea to have at least 4 good fire extinguishers per floor in your sanctuary. A lot of the heating and cooking you’ll be doing will be done with open flames, sometimes with highly combustible materials. You just can’t be too careful. Remember, this is the rest of your life we’re talking about here. So don’t take any chances.
These little beauties will save a ton of energy and effort by helping to keep your extremities warm without having to crank up a wide-open fire to warm your dwelling. You’ll conserve on using up heating fuel and the energy required for you to obtain it. These little beauties last about 8 hours and come in cases of 40. Depending on the severity of your winters, we’d recommend getting as many of these as you have room for.
