Tipsy Tuesday (#190)

It's time to change more than just our clocks...

Tip #190

Change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you turn back your clocks for Daylight Saving Time. 

Make sure to check the alarms with the new batteries installed. Check and replace any home fire extinguishers that have expired. This is also a great time to review your family's emergency evacuation plan, too. Better safe than sorry!

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!** 

P.S. Cut Impulsive some slack if she doesn't join us today, she's busy loving on her baby boy who arrived early Monday morning. Congratulations, my friend!

We do this. It beats thinking there is a cricket in the house when the thing starts chirping about a low battery.

I used to do this...now the maintenance man comes to do it twice a year. A perk of apartment living!
