The Back Story

Everybody knows a household emergency kit is important. Here’s what you need to know to put one together. Start with a plastic storage bin. Put it in a place in your home with easy access. You should have an LED flashlight, extra batteries, fire extinguisher, and a first aid kit. Keep heavy pliers in case you need to turn off gas and water. For added protection, add dust masks, gloves, and several gallons of drinking water for each person at home. If you have a landline phone, keep a handset you can plug right into the phone jack just in case you can’t use your cell phone.

The Back Story

Do you want to save money without leaving the house? Unplug it; TV’s and electronics use power even when they’re turned off. Your family could save one hundred dollars a year, just by using smart power strips. Try lowering the temperature on your water heater by ten degrees; you can save five percent on energy costs. Here’s a great money saver; when the weather gets cool, reverse your ceiling fan. By revolving it clockwise, your fan pulls up cool air and sends down the warmer air that’s settled near the ceiling.

The Back Story

What does it mean to go green around the house? It can be as basic as using non-toxic paint next time you redecorate your home. Or try eco-friendly products to make your house sparkle without harsh chemicals. You can even make your own by using lemon juice to dissolve soap scum. Vinegar also makes a great natural cleaner; just mix it with water in a spray bottle. Try hanging your laundry to dry outdoors naturally instead of throwing it in the dryer. And don’t forget to use dishcloths in your kitchen and dust cloths around the house.
