It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter where you are. When an emergency arises the only question is…are you prepared? If you’re driving in areas where a sudden blizzard strikes, you could be imprisoned in your car for a minimum of several hours, until the road crews can clear a path. You could be driving in dessert area and your car decides to have a mechanical failure, leaving you beside the road either until a passing motorist decides to stop and help (yeah, good luck with that one), or until help arrives from someone you call. (Providing of course your cell phone gets a signal in that area.)
Let’s not forget traveling through areas where flash floods have been known to happen without warning. Everyone thinks they are prepared if something were to happen, but are you? Just because you have a blanket in the trunk doesn’t prepare you for being stuck in a blizzard. Just because you have an extra bottle of your favorite triple filtered bottled water doesn’t mean you are ready for the desert. And just because you have your handy dandy weather app on your phone is not enough warning for a flash flood. With a few high quality survival products that you maintain in your car, you can at least be ready In the event of an unexpected emergency.
Dress For Conditions
Having an emergency kit for you and your passengers does not mean you keep everything in your car all year round. You don’t go out in the middle of summer with a parka and cold weather gear expecting a blizzard, nor do you have to keep your winter kit in your car if it is summertime. Keep what is necessary and find an appropriate storage area in your home for the off season for those particular items. There are many survival items on the market that are lightweight and compact that take up very little room. An entire survival kit for a few days can fit easily into a backpack or similar carrier.
Be Practical And Think Smart
Whenever someone plans for the possibility of being stranded of course the first things they think of are food and water. Water is especially necessary no matter if it is summer or winter. Take plenty no matter what. For food you can of course take the common canned goods or freeze dried camping packs.
One tip from the Canadian Arctic rescue teams is to take canned dog food ,as your survival food item. Think about it. You’re stranded somewhere. You’ve got nothing to do. You are not even really that hungry, but you start to eat up your food stores. Depending on how long it takes for help to arrive you may eat everything up and when you really need it there is nothing. Dog food can be consumed by humans in a pinch. But you’re not as likely to go gobbling it up right away and will only start to consume it when you are really desperate.
Everyone needs a bit of help now and again, no matter who you are or what your social status is. Emergencies come up, bills can be overlooked, and if you have kids, you never know just how much money your children are going to wind up costing you on a day to day basis. Sometimes, all of this can be a bit overwhelming! Rather than deal with the stress of having to come up with a large sum of cash all at once, you may have considered the possibility of obtaining a personal loan but are hesitant because you believe it will be tough. Luckily, it really is fairly easy.
Do You Need A Loan?
Different people can see the same situation and each may have a different opinion and solution than the other. Generally speaking, when it comes to money situations, the person that needs the money is desperate for it, which could lead them to make unwise decisions. It’s hard to see the whole picture when you are part of the picture. Before deciding that you really do need a loan, make sure that it is the option that will help you, rather than just make your situation worse in the long run.
Getting A Loan
Once you have decided that you do need a personal loan, all that’s left is securing one. There are plenty of different loans out there and the one that will work for you is the one that you know you can repay on their terms. There are lenders out there that provide loans for people with bad credit, so even if that is an issue of yours, it shouldn’t cause much of a problem. Generally, all it takes is a bit of collateral, proof of income, proof of residency, and identification. It really can be that easy.
Loans aren’t for everyone but if you are in a situation where you need the money, they can definitely help out. So, next time your car breaks down and is suddenly costing you fifteen hundred dollars to fix, remember that a loan is within reach.
People trying to save money have plenty of options available to them. There are television shows detailing the best ways to save money by clipping coupons, websites dedicated to giving you the best deals on pretty much any product or service. These are great ways to save some money but if you are a smoker, you are missing the biggest waste of money in your life: cigarettes. It is possible to get the nicotine you need, however, for much cheaper without having to break your habit.
A Great Invention
An e-cigarette is a wonderful invention that provides you with the nicotine you need (even at adjustable levels) but takes away many of the ingredients that make cigarettes so deadly. For instance, instead of inhaling a smoke that contains carbon monoxide, you are inhaling a water vapor that contains only nicotine. The second hand vapor that you exhale is simply a water vapor, so it will not harm the non-smokers around you or, more importantly, have them scolding you like they were your mother. The water vapor does not cause the same pulmonary issues that come along with smoking and it is a much less expensive way to get your nicotine.
A Cheaper Alternative
How much do you pay for a pack of cigarettes? Six dollars? Eight? Ten? The fact is that cigarettes are expensive and there is no foreseeable break in those prices. Rather, the trend seems to be that the government wants to tax cigarettes to the point that no one can afford to smoke those stick of cancer. With an e-cigarette, you purchase the initial device for less than it would cost for a carton of cigarettes (sometimes, even a pack of cigarettes, if you buy a disposable e-cig) and the “juice” you fill it with is about $6 for a 5ml bottle. Two drops equals one cigarette, so that 5ml bottle that cost $6 basically equates to about a carton of cigarettes.
E-cigarettes will definitely save you money. More importantly, they will extend your life. If you haven’t made the switch yet, what are you waiting for?
