I threw everything into a bag and made my own earthquake kit. I figured something was better than nothing and I don’t have $500 to spend on a kit. Mine includes a first aide kit, tampons and pads, batteries, water bottles, breakfast bars, and a radio/camping light combo. I hope should something happens I’d still have access to the kitchen. My biggest problem with an earthquake kit is that you have to remember to check it (take out expired food, change out the water). Overall be vigilant about its maintenance. It’s not just a one time thing.
