Your kit should be customized based on your own personal needs.  Keep your emergency supplies in a place that is accessible to you and other family members (garage, shed, or utility closet).  Rethink your kit and individual needs at least once a year.  Replace batteries, update clothes, etc Start with supplies for 3 days and build it up as much as possible.  Six weeks is not too much to set ahead.
