Be safe during power outages! Use some sort of reflective paint, stickers or tape on your breaker box, such as I have done in the photo. If you have to tell someone how to find it during an outage, something glowing bright green (or your color choice) makes it much easier for them to locate in the dark!

When repairing or replacing a light fixture or any electric job requiring the turning off of a fuse in the fuse box, consider this tip.

This summer while having electrical work done outside, we had to find out which fuse was the correct one to turn off. We put a post-it note on the door of the fuse box so we would not forget in the course of several days to complete the job. Since it was connected to things we needed to have operate when we came back inside the house each day, we would turn it back on and then off again the next day as we continued to work on it again.


Another good tip it to write on the inside of the cover plate the fuse each plug or outlet corresponds to in the fuse box. Makes it so easy each time you need to turn off power on your next redecorating job.
