I picked up a painter's drop sheet (clear plastic), a Mylar blanket, a blue 5X8 tarp and 100 ft of jute twine at the dollar store tonight for $5. Not bad additions to any kit. This small, light package gives us shelter and tinder. It's not great but a good economical start.

Duct tape or Gaff tape (if it's available and cheap. Usually, it's neither). 50' wrapped around a golf pencil is always handy.
