It is a second job keeping up with your home and making sure everything always functions correctly. Five things that every household needs to have and know how to do in your house. Hopefully most of you already have these things in your home. If not, get on it already. Trust me, better safe than sorry.
1. Flashlights, not just one. You need a few throughout your home, especially if you have several people in your home. Remember to have extra batteries.
2. You need to know where the circuit breaker is and how it works. Also if and when you lose power in certain parts of the house while you are using more than one appliance for example the coffee maker, and the blow drier you need to know why. Call an electrician.
4. Check for drafts in your house, fix them. It will save you money.
5. Disposing your burnt fire ashes. Place them in a old tin can.
