Snow is beautiful, but this week the east coast was reminded how treacherous the weather can be. Knoxville was lucky and missed the blizzard this time. If you are not prepared, spend some time NOW and get organized for the next weather wave.
Organize the Car:
Have small bag stocked with blanket, extra shoes, flashlight, and snacks.
Organize the Pantry:
This is one area that should always be organized. Clear out-of-date foods, and buy only what you like and have room for. Don’t let “bulk” buying clutter your space.
Create an Emergency Supply Area:
Have dedicated space for emergency supplies. Light bulbs, batteries, flash lights, radio, and phone chargers. Even have games ready should kids be without cable tv.
Organize Toiletries & Linens:
Have blankets and towels clean and organized. Stock toiletries and first aid supplies. You never know when the neighbors heat may go out and you have company.
If your storage is limited and you need ideas for create organizing solutions, contact Closets by McKenry for custom closet design. Be ready, and the next blizzard the only thing on the floor will be family gathering around the fire.
