I’ve talked about being prepared for emergencies before in other posts, but this Half Hour Organizing Project happened when we recently cleaned out our garage and I realized that we did not have all of our hurricane supplies in one place. They were in various places throughout the garage and even the attic! Not great when the lights go out and a storm is barreling down on your home.
I live on the East Coast and while hurricane season doesn’t officially start until June 1st, I wanted to get my new hurricane and emergency container ready now. Hurricane Preparedness Week actually runs May 26th-June 1st, so hey, you’ll be ahead of the curve! Wherever you live, it’s a good idea to have a container with basic emergency storm supplies. Here is a quick list:
Flashlights and/or lanterns
Landline phone (not cordless)
Candles and matches
