Start with the 5 essentials "C's" of survival:
-Cutting tool = Mora Knife
-Combustion = Fire Steel
-Container = Widemouth metal bottle & metal cup
-Cordage = 200' Paracord & 1000' of bank line
-Cover = Any type of Tarp, Tent, shelter...
Those are the essential non-replaceable items... beyond that it depends on your individual needs and situation. Flashlight, compass, fishing equip, food, water purification, first aid, bandana, fuel, ammo, spare glasses, etc...

My purchase yesterday (on advice of my son) was a box of fifty rounds of .357 magnum 125 JHPs.

Depends what the situation is I suppose.
Applied to my current situation if I had no other supplies and something happened where I could stay in my home.
1) Thermal/Emergency blanket.
2) Small propane stove/heat source.
3) Water/ or source of water with a way to purify.
That should use all of $50 I'm sure. You won't last long enough to REALLY need food if you don't have the others.
