Don't Forget!

Remember, we reset our clocks this weekend.
It is recommended that we routinely change the batteries in our smoke and carbon monoxide alarms during this time also. That means, stock up on your batteries this week, so you won't be caught short this weekend.
I recently had my furnace serviced and the rep reminded me about changing the batteries. Since I have changed the batteries regularly in the spring and fall, when the time changes, I asked him if it was REALLY necessary to do it twice a year.
He said that although the batteries were probably still adequate, considering what they cost,
don't risk it, go ahead and change them twice a year.
His suggestion for those batteries you take out-- store them in a jar and reach for them when you need to energize a less critical item.

Love the idea of tying it
in with changing the
smoke detector batteries.
