Weekend Assignment: 9/15/2016

It's time ... for another weekend assignment!  Are you ready?

Think of how many things you use batteries for ... now, think about what would happen if you needed to replace those batteries and you were all out!

You'd have to go to the store wouldn't you or not be able to use said item ... think TV remote or something similar ... do you really want to not be able to use your TV remote?

So, your assignment for this weekend is to check on the size batteries you use on an ongoing basis and then to check your supply of said batteries.  (I've already done this and restocked accordingly! These weekend assignments help me as well as you!)

You'll thank me when you have them on hand the next time you need them!

  1. Dear Patsy,
    I have been building up my battery supply. I have a lot. Especially for lanterns in case of power outages. Also globes. I decided to stock up on those too as running to the shops for a globe is madness.
    I think batteries are one of the first things to go in a crisis. Love

    1. Annabel, I think batteries are among the first things to go too in a crisis. With a little forethought and planning one wouldn't have to worry about it.

  2. Hi Patsy!

    It must be emailing time for some of us Aussies!

    The only thing we use batteries for now is a torch, and, thankfully, my husband looks after the batteries! I do, however, contemplate further ..... about when batteries can no longer be obtained. We can't rely on a full moon each night! The free pens and key rings with torches that are given away at some shows are very useful to me!! In the handbag and kitchen, they help!!

    1. Rachel, we have some of those key ring flashlights too. They are really handy! I surely hope there never comes a time when batteries can not be obtained, if it does, I guess we'll be using our oil lanterns.

  3. We are well stocked on AA and AAA here but need more 9volt for the smoke detectors.
    You made me picture my poor husband having to get up to channel flick, he might even just have to sit and watch one channel.
    If you keep your eyes open for sales at Office Max/Office Depot and Staples they usually put them on sale for free with 100% back in rewards, which we just flip over for other items later that they have on rebates.

    1. Rosanne, We don't have an Office Max, Office Depot or a Staples in our area but anyone who does, that is a good way to get their batteries for free. My husband loves his 'working' remote too!!!!!

  4. Wouldn't you know it? I needed AAA batteries last night and didn't have any. I wish you had assigned this LAST week Patsy! LOL Guess where I'm headed today….


    1. LOL Lori, isn't that the way it always goes!!!!
