The last two weeks of February were quicker for me to tackle. We were challenged to get a supply of dental toiletries and make sure we have text, emergency apps, and a solar charger for our phones.
1-Month Supply of Dental Toiletries
This challenge came at just the right time for me. Our bathroom storage needed to be reorganized and our toothbrush area definitely needed a good wipe down. Gross!
Before buying supplies, I decided to throw out some items under the bathroom counter and make room for what weâ€™d actually use. Doitonadimeblog.com
did this and I thought itâ€™d be helpful to clean out before adding more supplies.
Then, I went to the dollar store and picked out a number of cheap organizing baskets and bins. This made all the difference when I started loading up the cupboards. I can actually see what we have now, and my husband no longer has to ask me where something is every time he needs it!
We now have a good supply of dental toiletries. Itâ€™s funny how even just a tiny supply can bring so much peace of mind. No more running to the store when weâ€™re out of toothpaste. And no more going too many days without flossing just because we donâ€™t have any!
Have a cell phone with text. Check! Not too hard to complete that one.
Next, we were encouraged to download some emergency preparedness apps to our phone. I downloaded the FEMA app and the Red Cross App. I decided these apps wouldnâ€™t be too useful if I didnâ€™t know how to navigate them, so when I get a minute here and there, Iâ€™ve been familiarizing myself with them. Iâ€™ve actually learned a lot from the FEMA one about emergency preparedness. Thereâ€™s a blog you can access through the app with real-life experiences of people in disaster situations.
Weâ€™ve also been encouraged to purchase a solar phone charger, which I havenâ€™t done yet, but have it on my list to do soon!
