It is a good idea to keep cash or traveler’s checks hidden securely at home so that you have ready access to funds in case of a natural disaster or other major emergencies.
Replace supplies of batteries, water, and food
Many emergencies are perishable or have expiration dates, and should be replaced from time to time to ensure that you have fresh supplies.
Timing: Every 6 months: March, September (yearly)
You should keep emergency supplies in a location that you can readily find them in an emergency. Example places include in a designated box or shelf in a closet.
Emergency supplies that you should consider keeping in this box or shelf include: batteries, jugs of water, and canned food.
The benefits of this task are relatively high, and you will be especially glad to have your fresh emergency supplies available during an emergency.
The cost of this task is very low. It is estimated that this task should only take about 30 minutes to complete, and the task is relatively easy to do. No specialized tools are required, although you will need to gather the appropriate emergency supplies from around your home.
