I'm finding this out to be very very true. My mother was a medic for several years and acquired quite an array of stuff. When I asked her if she could recommend some stuff for a med kit she just put together a nice kits complete with splints, CV-collar, Lots of burn treatments and bandages, etc. It's been great, but all together it's a mess and kind of tough to find any particular thing when you need it, even to attempt to re-orgainize. I was considering looking around for a used or empty pre-made kit just to have the different color coded packets. If I could find one of the high end pre-made kits without any of the contents, for cheap or relatively cheap, I would grab that up and fill out any of the contents that I didn't already have or were outdated.
