I live in a community where if you sneeze the power goes out, so it was no surprise that we lost power on Saturday with the 8 to 10 inches of snow we received...yes, in October, just outside NYC.
Thought this would be a good time to share one of my "tools" for keeping a home. I have power outage lights in every bedroom,every living space and the foyer in my home. When the power goes out these lights turn on automatically and become flashlights for me to get around the house safely. Highly recommend!
Google power outage lights and select from the various ones offered. They aren't attractive, so I plug them into less conspicuous areas...behind sofas and chairs, in the kitchen behind the Keurig coffee maker, behind the dresser in my foyer and other out of sight spaces.
What tip can you share that helps to keep your home running smoothly?
