As you head out and about to get stocked up for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, be sure to swing over to the clearance section in each store you visit. Stores are blowing out leftover Christmas themed items that may be of benefit to your preps. Examples include candles, fleece blankets, popcorn tins, even multi-tools. By now, most of those things will be marked at least half off, many places are probably at about 75% off. When the power goes out, it really doesn’t matter if the candle holder has a picture of Santa on it, does it? Look for the fancy gift box packaged crank flashlights, emergency radios, and small tool sets. No, the quality won’t be quite as good as the stuff you could likely buy elsewhere but for the price, this stuff can’t be beat.
This will be my last blog post here until after New Year’s. I sincerely wish each and every one of you to have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve and Day. Be careful out on the roads. If you’ll be celebrating some place other than home, make sure you have a designated driver. You can have all the preps in the world and they won’t do you a bit of good if you get killed (or kill someone else) driving drunk.
Take care, folks. I’ll see you all next year!
