Costco is a great place to buy prepper supplies. Whether you’re stocking your bug-out bag, survival bunker, or just buying food for that weekend camping trip breakfast, Costco has you covered!
Get Your Prepper Supplies in Bulk and on a Budget
1. First Aid Kit
Costco has completed first aid kits, or you can buy the individual supplies yourself to build your own custom first aid kit.
At Costco, most grocery items come in bulk, including water. The price on the Nestlé Pure Life Purified Bottled Water 16.9oz 78/24ct cases is up there, but for the 1,872 bottles, it is calculated at $3.82 each bottle.
I understand that many people may be saying, “Why the heck would I want that many bottles of water?”
If you are stocking up a survival bunker, for example, this amount of water is perfect for you and your family, as one person should consume one gallon of water a day. Water goes quicker than most people realize.
3. Non-Perishable Food Supplies
Non-perishable food items are great to have in bulk, especially for long-term survival and SHTF list of supplies. Here is a starter list of non-perishable items that you and your family can buy in bulk at Costco.
- Canned goods
- Cereal / Grains
- Peanut Butter

Flashlights are another must-have item for any prepper! Like most items at Costco, flashlights can also be bought in bulk. Check out their great selection of flashlights.
If you want to keep all the “prepping” shopping in one trip, Costco has a few selections to choose from. We’re not talking high-quality knives but, as I always say, “A mediocre knife is better than no knife at all.”
7. Handheld Weather Radio
A handheld weather radio is a must-have for every prepper. Keeping a constant watch on the weather is very important.
Severe weather can sometimes arrive in just minutes and staying informed of any weather warnings is important!
The features of this weather station include: Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) Backlit LCD with 24/7 Sound Alerts, Battery Operated or AC Adapter Powered.
Another must-have item for any prepper is batteries. You can never have too many!
Everyone should own a backpack. They serve the purpose of a bug-out bag, a travel bag, and so much more!
9. Organic Seed Kit
Gardening is a huge part of any prepper’s lifestyle. If you are new to gardening, the Organic Storage Seed Kit from Costco is the perfect start to your new spring garden.
Costco is pretty much a prepper’s dream. They have a wide variety of survival items to choose from.
