Lumin Flashlight

When I opened the package for the Lumin Flashlight, my first thought was - "what the?"

It's kind of funny looking, don't you think?

Well, this flashlight is the COOLEST thing! First, you have to plug it in, and keep it plugged in to get the full benefits. When it's plugged in it functions as a night light. (The light is below the charging unit.)

Second, after it's fully charged, whenever you take the flashlight off the base, it's automatically on! I love that! It has 7 LED lights - so it's pretty bright when you need it!

Third, and this is the best part, if the power goes out, it automatically turns on! Woo Hoo! How do I know? Well the instructions say so, BUT, last Wednesday night, we tested it! Not that we wanted the power to go out, but it did around 11:00. We were in bed, but since it was the first time the power had gone out since we plugged it in, I made Ric get up and check the flashlight! True to it's claim, it was ON!

There's only one thing I wish was different, and that's the charging base - even though it's only plugged into one outlet, it takes up almost the space of two. If places to plug things in are scarce around your house, it may be an inconvenience.

Bottom Line: I highly recommend the Lumin Flashlight. In fact, we're going to buy some more! They would be perfect for bedrooms, and I want one in the garage too!

Retail Price: 32.95

What is a ReadyParty Anyway?

Official Definition: A ReadyParty is a casual open house, where throughout the evening your invited guests can check out products, browse catalogs, ask questions, sample food and get amazing deals on emergency preparedness products.

My definition: It's a chance to gather your friends for a very different kind of home party. The products you and your guests can purchase at a ReadyParty may very well save your life! (I'm not trying to be dramatic, it's true!) From fully-stocked 72-hour emergency kits to freeze-dried foods, you can't go wrong purchasing products that will protect your family in one way or another. There's nothing MORE important than that!

What's in it for you? Here's the best part! When you host a ReadyParty, you earn 10% of the entire party sales to spend at the ReadyStore! (From the catalog, etc.) What better way to quickly start to gather those emergency kits or make a dent in your long-term food storage?

What's in it for your guests? Well...this is pretty good too! Even though you can purchase products online at The Ready Store website - the prices for the SAME products are LESS than the online prices! Woo Hoo! PLUS, there's NO TAX* and NO SHIPPING! What's better than that? Just one more way to save money while protecting your family!

Ready to have a party? Just contact me to schedule it! Invite your friends (I'll give you invitations and other info), and let me in the door when I arrive! (Parties typically last only 2 hours.)

*If you live in Utah, you do have to pay sales tax.

PS - If you don't want to have a party, but plan to spend more than $200, it counts as a party anyway! You can be anywhere in the country and take advantage of this! Let me know if you are interested and I'll give you all the details!

Emergency? What Emergency?

Just what do I mean when I say "get ready for any emergency?"

Well, it can be just about anything from getting laid off from your job to a hurricane, tornado, or earthquake! If you're getting ready for one thing, you're getting ready for all of it!

I've been asked - "Why should I prepare anyway? Doesn't that mean that I'm expecting something to happen?" Absolutely not! Why shouldn't you prepare?

Has any of the following happened to you or anyone you know?

  • You or your spouse loses their job. Now what do you do? (unemployment only lasts so long!)
  • Your car breaks down and it's not going to be cheap to fix it!
  • Severe storms knock out power for days! (Everything in the fridge spoils! Yuck!)
  • Any kind of natural disaster hits your area. What if you have to evacuate? Will you have what you need to keep your family safe for a few days?
  • Something happens in your neighborhood and you're told to evacuate immediately. Do you have what you need in your car to help you survive for a couple of days?
  • We hear it in the news - a flu pandemic. An extreme scenario might be a quarantine no one comes or goes from their homes - yes it's extreme, but it could happen! What would you do? Would you have enough food to feed your family if something like this happened?
The most important reason? YOU LOVE YOUR FAMILY!

That's why I say "Get Ready!"
