The one thing I noticed is that you have something labeled "BULB" in your plastic container. Do you not have an LED flashlight? Id recommend one, that way you dont have to worry about it going dark on you when you need it.

Where did you pick up that mini dry box for the lighters? Sorry if i missed it if you mentioned it already.

I'd replace the two knives you have in your E&E bag with a small fixed blade/real SAK. Also I'd get some firesteel in there also either in place of or in addition to the magnesium bar. And to be honest your home made MRE's probably taste a lot better than real ones anyways, so just put other things you like in there and save up for a vacuum sealer if you like.

Also the little ferrocium stick falls it with just a small drop to the ground. To me the firesteel + your choice of tinder = Win. I was timing petroleum jelly+ cotton balls to see how long they would burn, after about 3 mins I just put it out 'cause that seemed more than enough .

For the homebrew MRE's maybe you could add some of those foil packets of: spam, BBQ chicken, flavored tuna etc. It would help to provide some real protein in the form of meat.
