Emergency Bag for Electrical Outages

Instead of trying to look in all areas for your emergency candles during a power failure, have a few stored in a bag with a lighter and flashlight. Hang your bag in the utility room or other out of the way spot. Then no more hunting, just retrieve your emergency bag and have light.


Candle holders in a emergency are hard to find. Save a few baby formula cans, cut a hole in the lid and push the candle through. All the hot wax is inside the can.

I love the idea of putting everything together in a bag so that you know just where it is when you need it. So simple, just something I never took care of before. Thanks for motivating me to do so. I live in Louisiana, so planning for the electricity to be out (as it often is during hurricane season) is certainly useful!
