Take Charge of Your Battery Situation

Take Charge of Your Battery Situation

February 18th is National Battery Day

February 18th is National Battery Day. I’d like to take this great opportunity to address battery storage and organization. Start saving yourself time, money, and aggravation. Make it easier to find the battery you need.

Here’s a common scenario: You need three AAA batteries. You open your junk drawer and rummage around. You come up with two AA and a pack of C batteries.

I’m guessing you don’t want to waste time or energy running around the house to find what you need. Read on for some tips to quickly and easily locate the type and number of batteries that you need. You’ll be saving yourself yet another trip to the store at the last minute.

Create a Home for Your Batteries

  • Create a designated spot where you will keep all of the batteries centralized in one area.
  • Use containers to keep batteries organized.
  • Note when you are running low on a battery type you use often and add it to your shopping list.
  • When new batteries are purchased, immediately put them away so they’re ready and waiting for you when you need them.

I’ve created a space and organized all the batteries our family uses in one spot. Now, everyone in our household knows where to find a battery when they need one. I chose to place our batteries in a drawer in our kitchen, which I refer to as the “utility” drawer. Our utility drawer houses other items we use fairly frequently, like scissors, extra keys, lighters, and birthday candles.
