Who's in charge of batteries?
If your vacations find you packing a barrage of battery-powered items such as flashlights, portable CD players, Gameboys, and cameras, you may need to stock up on fresh batteries before your trip.
Rather than run through the house each year checking to see what type of batteries each gadget requires, why not make a list and keep it with your supply of extra batteries.
That way, when it's time to shop for vacation, you can just check your list, take inventory of your battery supply, and quickly see what you need to buy.
By the way, a small shoebox makes a good storage container for extra batteries.
