Each Monday and Wednesday, I bring you two items from Amazon that I personally use or can recommend based on my experience. I consider them critical for modern homesteading, prepping and living more self-sufficiently. Even if you already have these, they make great presents for your friends and loved ones who aspire to be better prepared.
The first item is my Leatherman Surge Multi Tool. Actually, I can’t believe how often I use this. Literally every day.
Most often I use one of the knives, as it has, of course, completely replaced my pocket knife, since it has two blades.
But I find myself using the wire cutter and pliers just as often. You’d expect that on a homestead. But you’d be surprised how handy this thing is for every day stuff—like those impossible to open molded plastic packages that everything gets in. I just whip this out of the pouch on my belt and it’s done.
Of all the items I recommend, few are higher on the list than my Leatherman Surge Multi Tool.
Next up today are these amazing Innogear Solar Landscape Lights. Only the value to a prepared person is NOT for landscaping, but for power outages.
When there are power outages, people usually figure they’ll use candles, flashlights or lanterns for house lights. Two of those methods pose a risk of fire danger at a time when emergency services may be unavailable.
What I love about these is you leave them outside for “normal” landscape duty, and bring them inside to light up the whole house when you have an outage.
I depend on four of these (two packs) to make sure we’re always…lit. Uh…don’t take that the wrong way.
So there you have it. There are lots of tools you need to live a self-sufficient life, but these are the two I recommend today. If you don’t have them, get them.
