I have two of these - one for each car and they are great,
By the way - first aid kits are FSA, HSA and HRA eligible so you can use those expiring funds from 2017 for the kit. woot

I understand when you have no choice, but if you're packing a first aid kit and have a choice of what to put in it, saline is what you want- less discomfort when washing out eyes, better for washing out wounds as it doesn't upset the wound environment as much and it has a lower freezing point-

It is 8 degrees where I am this morning and the saline I have in my car is still liquid. I can't say the same for the water bottle I have sitting next to it.

Note: HSA funds never expire so unlike FSA funds that must be used by year end , no needs to drain the HSA contributions instead CONTRIBUTE to the MAX LIMIT (if you can) every year out of paycheck contributions and then invest it like your 401k, and when you retire these HSA MEDICAL funds and gains can be drawn like 401k - TAX FREE , PENALTY FREE for any needs and not just medical. That's assuming you don't pull the HSA funds for MEDICAL needs prior to retirement.

HSA is even better than 401k as no taxes whatsoever are ever paid on your contributions if done via payroll, unlike 401k you still pay fica/medicare taxes - and then gains are tax deferred instead of tax free.

Read up on the HSA and how to use it more than just a health savings towards your overall financial / retirement goals.

Not bad for 12 bucks. I usually call these kits junk but this one isn't bad. Add a couple bottles of water for irrigation

I have most of the stuff in the kit (like 200 are basic bandaids) from previous slickdeals, and they were cheaper overall. I need a vehicle first aid kit, but I'm thinking "knuckle bandaids" aren't going to be my top priority in a serious accident. Need wraps and gauze. I know not every "emergency" is going to be a car accident, but that's top of my priority list for a car kit.

FYI, this stuff doesn't last long stored in a car. You should check periodically, and refill.

You mean saline, right? Not sure what you would be irrigating with water...

Cuts, scrapes, etc. We've always used water to remove embedded gravel or other foreign debris from the wound. Not a lot of saline hoses in the country.
