10 November Preps

In no particular order...

  1. Vote (Election Day is November 8th)
  2. Set your clocks back an hour on November 6th if your area does this (some places like Arizona no longer observes daylight savings time)
  3. Replace the batteries in your smoke detectors, change your furnace filters, and make sure your fire extinguishers are fully charged too.
  4. Buy your holiday meal items soon.  With continually rising prices, shortages, and potential supply chain disruptions, last minute shoppers may not find their favorite holiday food items.
  5. Start holiday gift shopping this month so you don't, again, run out of gift options if you wait until the last minute.
  6. Participate in a Veteran's Day event on November 11.  There are still some (a dwindling few?) patriotic things Americans can do and supporting our veterans is one of those things.
  7. Here are some end-of-the-year financial tasks you can start working on.
  8. Of course there are always seasonal tasks that need to be done like these things for your home and these things for your vehicle.
  9. And if you live in a place where winter storms are a concern, check out these prep tips.
  10. Stash cash safely and securely in your home.  If AMTs go down, you need to quickly evacuate, or an other type of disaster happens, it is always a good idea to have enough cash on hand to see you through for a while.
