Do your kids ever get scared of the dark? When we have storms coming in, we often give the kids a flashlight near their bed so they will have light if the power goes out. But where do you put a flashlight? On the floor? On a night table? how about in a special holder designed to keep the flashlight handy even if it’s pitch black?

  • Stretch the necktie under the mattress so it will hang right at the edge of the mattress.
  • Now you will never have to dig for a flashlight if the power goes out.
