Thanks to my wonderful husband, we are fortunate enough to have a generator. Woohoo! So when the power goes out we can push a button that will turn on the diesel beast and it will give us power to run the well pump, some lights, TV/DVR, refrigerator, freezer and pellet stove. The generator has been worth every penny because it has given us piece of mind and comfort.
Last night right before going to bed the power went out. My hubby and I talked and agreed that it didn’t make sense to run the generator and use the fuel, if we didn’t need to right away. Our refrigerator and freezer were very cold and we hoped the power would be back on soon.
So as we collected our LED flashlights including our Harbor Freight freebie flashlights and placed them in easy to reach locations my husband pulled out his dollar tree find! A pack of bracelet glow sticks! He took attached them to each of the kids door knobs and our banister. In case, we had to get up in the middle of the night we could see easily the door knob. It was amazing how much they glowed. And, it only cost a couple cents. What a great idea!
In your emergency kit think about getting a pack of glow sticks!
