    Tool boxes are handy and cheap on sale for general storage.
    We have black tool boxes with labels noting the contents some had with med supples.
    At Home Depot I noticed an orange tool box for $8.00 so I picked up two shortly after moved the grab-n-go around home med stuff into them.

    No labels just ORANGE notes med..

    NOTE: looks like after midnight the price went up :ROFLMAO:

    Nice! I use something kind of like that for a Grab and Go! For med kits, I prefer a soft shoulder bag, but for in home, or long term storage, your on the right track me thinks! I would take it further and assume you have med supplies sealed against moisture? If so, then your G.T.G!!!

    This is a fun idea. I need more organized storage for my medical supplies. I have a gardening bag that I use and can grab but it is full and now has too much in it. A tool box could hold the over-flow.

    I still have mixed feelings on those "Crash Boxes" but do see the merits of them in a Fixed Position like in the home!

    We have our original Med-GoBox, that has lived behind the WoodStove, since '91..... and now, we also have the Cannery Med-GoBox, plus an AED, in it's own "Grab & GoBag, that lives on the Floor of our Entrace Room of the Cabin.... Pictures in the morning...

    The tool boxes are secondary kits our main kit is one of these my niece an RN has helped us stock and organize it.

    Doesn't that shorten the life of the products inside? Being near the heat could affect the products like ointment and band-aids. I know band-aids get worthless after a few summers in the car.

    The WoodStove is only used when the Outsode Temps drop below 25°F... Which doesn't happen but maybe 20 Days a year..... IMG_0140.
    Hair Dryer is used to get the WoodStove lite and burning good......
