 Here are a few important items to add to your collection

There’s a good chance you’ve thrown away stuff you used to think was garbage, but would keep now that you are a prepper. And even though you may be starting to think along those lines of what you can and should keep for reusing, recycling, and repurposing, there may be some items you’re leaving out.

Here’s a great list of 21 things you should never throw away. The whole mentality behind this is that everything has a purpose. With some having 2 or 3.

  • Broken crayons, candle stubs, and any other form of paraffin wax can be used to make new candles, or along with other items to make fire starting tablets.
  •  
  • Dryer lint can be used as tinder, or when combined with paraffin wax or petroleum jelly, to make fire starting tablets.
  •  
  • Cardboard egg cartons can be used to sprout seeds or as the container for fire starting tablets.
