Chances are, you have a bag set aside in case you have to move quickly. What you carry in that bag are those items you need to sur­vive on the move. Per­haps you are car­ry­ing some freeze-dried food, or maybe you in­tend to hunt, fish and for­age. Ei­ther way, there is no need to de­prive your­self of the best chow pos­si­ble un­der the cir­cum­stances. So pack some spices, be­cause a good meal goes a long way to­ward boost­ing morale.

Here is how I carry my sup­ply of spices:

• Empty pill bot­tles work great. They seal tightly, keep most of the light out and take up very lit­tle room. Just make sure you clean them well be­fore fill­ing and la­bel­ing the con­tents. • Re­seal­able plas­tic sand­wich bags have to be the best in­ven­tion ever. They have so many uses—one of which is stor­ing your ran­dom spices. Light­weight, air­tight and water­proof, they are just what you need. Squeeze as much air out as pos­si­ble be­fore you seal them.

Whether you go with the pill bot­tles or sand­wich bags, make sure you mark them. You should also put them in a larger, re­seal­able freezer bag as ex­tra pro­tec­tion. This also makes them easy to grab when you need them.
