Enjoying New Crafts

My husband is a teacher, so we don't have a lot of extra money. However, a few years back, I found a great way to beautify my home without spending thousands upon thousands of dollars. I started crafting, and it was amazing to see the difference that it made. Within a few short weeks, I was able to perk up my boring home and add a lot of visual interest to things outdoors. This blog is all about making your place more beautiful by enjoying some fun, family-friendly crafting time. You never know, you might be able to create a gorgeous wreath or update your home's look--without spending a lot of money.

Have You Moved To An Area With Frequent Natural Disasters And Don't Have The Right Lighting? What To Do

If you live in an area where you have a lot of storms and high winds, losing power may be something that occurs several times throughout the year. Candles are very dangerous and shouldn't be used or established as the main source of light for the home. If your home currently doesn't have a lot of backup lighting--just a flashlight or two--there are other options you have to consider so you can stay safe. Consider the following things.

Interior Lights with Backups

If you want to still be able to use your lights around your house, and have some overhead options when the power is out, you will want to find battery backup overhead interior lighting options. You can have these set up so that they use the backup as soon as the power goes off, or that you have to manually activate the battery backup option.

Solar Exterior Lights

Exterior lights are easy to prepare for with an emergency because you can get solar options. Most people use the solar options so they don't have to pay for high electricity bills to light the exterior of the home. Get lights that go around all the doors, porch, or garden that work off solar energy and get powered throughout the day with the help of UV rays. This way you don't have to worry about it being dark outside if you don't have power, and you may be able to use some of that exterior lighting with the windows open to light the inside of your home.

Multiple Movable Lights

Stock up on a wide variety of movable lights. Just a few small flashlights may not be enough, and you may not have them in the areas needed when the lights go out. Get night lights that are solar powered, along with movable lanterns and light sticks, so anyone can have a light source at any place in the house if the power goes out.

A lot of people are unaware of how many options there are for lighting in the house that doesn't require hooking up to an electrical outlet, and that doesn't require a lot of batteries. You will need these lighting options to work when you are trying to find your way around in the dark when there is an emergency, or when you are trying to wait out a severe storm.
