Hurricane Irene struck a few days ago and some people in the Northeast are still without power and other basic services. This got me thinking about some basic emergency preparedness and how sometime the old solutions are still the best. You may get all your news on your iPhone via The HuffPo, or eat only microwave organic food normally--but most likely that's not gonna cut it after an earthquake, hurricane or other natural disaster.
Here are ten items you are going to want stashed away somewhere in case of emergency.

Did you ever look at a jar and think, "That's worn out"? Glass objects, like many other things, simply don't "wear out." And even if they show a little wear, it's perfectly acceptable to use them anyway. This means that you can buy them already used. Why spend two dollars on the same jar that you can get for fifty cents or less, used?
There are other things you should never buy new:

Money Saving Tips
We all waste money on things we could easily live without.
That's no surprise, though, as a quick look at our runaway credit
card debt reveals an obvious fascination with overspending.
However, you might be surprised to learn what some of our most
unnecessary money drains actually are.
Sure, you've got the usual suspects like luxury cars and
oversized homes, but we also can't forget about things like rental
car insurance and fraud monitoring services either.
While we may consider such things to be essential, they're
actually redundant at best. For example, most credit cards
automatically provide free auto rental coverage, and by choosing to
pay for a policy through a rental company, you're actually negating
what you've already got, not supplementing it.
Manufacturers want you to try their new products but sometimes they don't offer a freebie sample.
The next best thing is a rebate. What's a rebate? The manufacturer of the product will mail you a
check for the purchase price of certain products.
How does it work?
Step One: You buy the specific product at the store.
Step Two: Fill in the manufacturers rebate form.
Step Three: Mail the rebate form and other required info (usually a UPC and/or store receipt) to the manufacturer of the product.
Step Four: YOU GET A CHECK IN THE MAIL!
Rebate checks usually take about 4 - 8 weeks to arrive. Next is the most important fact you need to know:
You have to open every piece of mail even if it looks like junk mail. I had a check arrive once that I almost tossed
in the recycle bin by my mailbox. It looked like junk mail! I know it can be a little inconvenient but it's a
great way to try full size products.
Read on for a list to see what you can get a refund for.

Sometimes I think there must be a black hole in our budget where the extra money disappears, never to be seen again. Have you ever received a raise or finished paying off a big debt and thought you would now have extra money, only to find that within a few months you've gotten used to the additional funds in your budget? Now instead of it being an extra financial cushion, it is almost like it was never there. You know what they say, if you have it, you'll spend it.
