15 ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR EMERGENCY GO BAG

15 ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR EMERGENCY GO BAG Emergency supplies

National Preparedness Month is here again, and it is a great reminder that if you still haven’t built or updated your emergency kit, there’s no time like the present. A Go Bag (also referred to as a Bug-out Bag) is a pre-packed kit that will be your lifeline in case of an emergency evacuation situation. Some disaster scenarios don’t leave time for thorough planning in the moment. Fires, for example, move fast – so should you. In these instances, you aren’t going to be able to take your time to gather up everything you want to from home. A Go Bag is about making sure you have what you need and getting away quickly and safely. After working in the survival and medical industries over the last two decades and experiencing my own fire evacuation due to living in California, I have compiled a list of items that I have tested and strongly recommend.

Before you start compiling your kit, here are a few helpful considerations:

  • Build it out for the number of people in your household (including your pets). My bag (pictured above) is built for five: two adults, two small children, and one dog for 24 hours.
  • Consider the type of disaster you are most likely to encounter where you live. For us, it’s likely grass fires or floods, so we should be able to reach a friend’s home or red cross shelter in 24 hours or less on foot. If you live in earthquake or hurricane territories, you should pack enough supplies for 72 hours as those disasters can take out a much larger area of infrastructure at once.
  • Determine where you’re going to keep your kit and communicate exactly what it’s for to all members of your household (you can even label it as an extra reminder). I recommend putting it in a place that you would pass on your fastest way out of the house, like a coat closet or hook near the front door.

ORGANIZE: TACKLE THAT JUNK DRAWER IN 4 STEPS Organized Drawer

The official first day of spring is this weekend and you may already have the itch to start cleaning. Last spring, we all may have been a little gung-ho, purging our closets and diving into home improvement projects that we may, or may not, have had the skills or know-how to do. This year, I suggest easing into your spring cleaning with a little smaller task – tackling your junk drawer.  Let’s be honest, we all have (at least) one, and it probably gets cleaned out less than every few years. So, allow me to help you find the motivation to clear out the chaos and bring calm to the place in your house where little items make the biggest mess.

ORGANIZING YOUR GARAGE IN 4 EASY STEPS

ORGANIZING YOUR GARAGE IN 4 EASY STEPS ORGANIZING YOUR GARAGE

My garage is my sanctuary.  It is the protector of my vehicle, a room for DIY projects and it’s the only place where I’m allowed to display all the beer mugs and neon signs I collected in my 20’s.  The more projects I have, the more the garage gets disorganized, because the remnants of projects past add clutter, and the tools do not always make it back to the original location.

Each spring, the garage needs a refresh.  I plan a full day to give it some feng shui and eliminate the negativity associated with walking into a mess every day. There are four steps I take to make it all happen…

ORGANIZE: 10 FOOLPROOF CLOSET ORGANIZATION TIPS CLOSET

If there is one area of the house that can too easily get out of control, it’s the closet. If you’re anything like me, you may have the tendency to acquire more clothes, shoes, bags and accessories without getting rid of anything you already have, and before you know it, your closet is jam-packed. On top of it being over-stuffed, you probably haven’t taken the time to re-organize your closet in a while, so things start getting haphazardly thrown in without much consideration. In the spirit of OrganIZE – our Big Idea this month – and the start of spring cleaning season, I’m going to share a few tips on how I keep my closet organization game in check.
