Happy Tuesday everyone! In light of the recent line of storms sweeping over the country, I wanted to share the items in my emergency box. Yes. I have an emergency box. Charlotte isn’t exactly Tornado Alley but we have had our fair share of flooding, hurricanes and intense storms (see our favorite car ever being driven out of a flood… totalled during Floodpodcalypse 2011.)
- Flashlights (and a Cars lantern for Mason)
- Long burning candles
- A first aid kit
- Phone charger
- Multipurpose tool
- Baby wipes and hand sanitizer
- Games for Mason
- Bones for Moe
- A small foldable camping stove with propane (MicroRocket Stove)
- Manual can opener
- Duct tape AKA Macgyver Tape
- Sofia (because, why not)
Thanks to Costco, we have enough non-perishable food and bottled water to last a while so I’m thankful that is covered. Blankets, jackets and shoes are in our “safe zone” closet under the stairs where we can go if we need extra shelter in the house. Anyways, I know I’m totally over thinking all of this but I would rather be on the safe side!
Whats in your emergency box? I’m sure I forgot a thing or two, any more suggestions?
Here are some resources I used to put the box together:
