A Stay Bag is the modern family’s answer to the mid-century bunker. Are we fully encased in concrete? No. Do we have enough supplies to outlast the worst of the radiation? YES. (In reality, you’re more likely to use it during an extended power outage.)

Making sure you have everything you need for your Stay Bag can be stressful, so we’ve created this interactive checklist for you! We’ve divided up supplies into three categories: essential, comfort, and bonus, so you can focus on what’s most important.
