I was walking through the store the other day, shopping for weekly groceries and listening to my kids ooh and ahh over all the things they want to put on their Christmas wish list.
My immediate thought was just to buy them huge packs of batteries and give it as their gift. Not because I'm M.O.M (Mean ole Mom), but because they use up so many batteries in their toys! I cringe when I hear a request for new batteries. Those things are expensive!
I want solar batteries. I want rechargeables galore!
I'm not saying I wont do the battery thing, but I'll just be nice about it and put it as a stocking stuffer :)
Ahh look at you breathe a sigh or relief for my kids. Haha.
Anyway SheSpeaks and Duracell are already cheering my stocking stuffer idea! I received two packs of batteries to use in our electronics. I could use them now or later as stocking stuffers. Guess what I chose to do? haha. You know it!
Have you thought about what gifts you are going to purchase that will need batteries?
When you purchase electronic gifts this season, if you can afford it, definitely add some batteries in there.
My son has his play time on the game remote and other toys that need batteries. My daughter has her computer she received for her birthday, and every so often she needs batteries. And of course my camera requires a good set of batteries to operate for awhile without constantly shutting off.
As a household, many things here require batteries every so often!
Not only do you need batteries for electronic toys, you still need to keep your flashlights and other household items up-to-date in cases of emergencies! Speaking of emergency: Do not forget to change your smoke alarm batteries! You should have done that during the time change, but if you didn't, here's a kindly reminder.
Most of us will be traveling this holiday season. Pack your duracell batteries for emergencies while out on the roadways. My emergency radio, flashlights and back up batteries are always with me!
