Raised in California and transplanted to Utah. Married my college sweetheart from Montana, and we are raising 4 nuggets together. I love all things DIY projects and doing them on a budget. I don’t mind messing up and am ok with the 90/10 rule - nothing is perfect over here and it’s fine by me! Encouraging all ‘wanna-be’ DIYers to just get out there and try it! You will be so glad you did.”
We are getting ready for the holidays and making sure our family is safe and sound. So I am partnering with First Alert to discuss a very important topic. You can find more information here on winter safety.
Did you know that 50,000 people each year get sick from Carbon Monoxide poisoning? And it will take 400 of these individuals lives, half of which take place during November through February. It is called the Silent Killer because it is a gas that is invisible, odorless and deadly. The only way to detect it is the have a CO alarm in your home.
First Alert’s top priority is keeping families safe. So they invented a new CO alarm that has a 10 year battery life that can be set on a shelf. It is called the First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Carbon Monoxide Alarm. It is stylish design that shows the temperature, and will alarm you when CO levels are too high. The best part? There is no installation required!
Mine arrived in the mail this week and I was so excited to try it out. The directions were simple and easy to follow. The box was darling and reminded me of The Elf on The Shelf!
I couldn’t believe how simple it really was. I turned it on and followed the directions. Within minutes it was up and running.
I found a place in the kitchen that was far enough away from the appliances (they recommend 5 feet). My floating shelves were the perfect spot and the alarm hid nicely there.
