The Battery Box – It Works for Me!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 15, 2009 @ 10:19 am In Home Management | 11 Comments

Years ago a friend showed me a practice that her parents had handed down to her. It was a small rubbermaid box filled to the brim with batteries. I was shocked. It had never occured to me to stock up on batteries and to keep them in one centralized location.

(This was obviously before my couponing days [5].)

Ever since then, we’ve had a battery box. It is a standard location for all sizes of batteries and other small electronic pieces and gadgets. Whenever anyone needs a replacement, they check the box. When I buy new ones on sale, they have a home right away.

Today it seems like a no-brainer to have this, but I tell ya, it was once a revolutionary idea. Regardless, it is one that definitely works for me [6]!
