    • How to use a Survival Kit:

      1. Gather the Items listed in the kit
      2. Print out a cute listing of the contents so that the recipient knows what each item is for.
      3. Place the items in a baggie
      4. Print out the topper, fold it over the top of the baggie containing the survival kit contents and staple it shut

       Please note that Most of the survival kits listed have free printable toppers available to print here.

        I'm sorry you're experiencing difficulties in navigating the site, with over 250,000 pages of information it is hard to put everything in 1 place

        First, all of articles have Print Buttons. They are located here:

        Attachment 4955

        If you don't want to use your ink, you can also print via PDF. These print buttons allow you to "Pick & Choose" which content you want printed. So if there's a photo on the page, you can simply click on it to remove it once the print option has been activated.

        Next- nearly all of the survival kits have cute toppers that are available to members in our downloads area, also for free.

        This information is here: Survival Kits - Downloads - Budget101.com

        (For your direct help, the Mom's Survival kit is located on pg 4!)

        Once you locate the survival kit you want, simply click on the link to go to the topper, hit download and you're done.

        Again, I'm not sure how else we can make the site less difficult to navigate. There are distinct sections on the left hand side of each page as well as along the top of each page. If you have any suggestions, we'd be open to them.
