Be prepared for events such as a blizzard, hurricane or other situations where one might be confined to their home for several days. Staying in your home is often safer than seeking outside shelter in major disaster events.
One is being scammed when one gives important personal and financial information to an individual who has no right to this information. Scammers use the phone, email, and solicitations at one's home. Once the scammer has this information, he can wreck havoc with your personal and financial security.
A basement full of file boxes. The attic is overflowing with knickknacks. Closets filled with clothes. Wonderful memories that are never looked at, never worn, but may be used some day! Some day never arrives until events outside of your control force you or others to deal with all this Clutter. Having too much clutter is a safety hazard not only to you, but to those trying to help you in an emergency.
