1. Kidde Carbon Monoxide Detector 

Many of you know why I am an advocate for carbon monoxide awareness and safety.

Whether you purchase via my link or not, please buy yours today to protect yourself and your loved ones both at home and while traveling. (The price is exactly the same via Amazon whether you use my link or not.)

Click on the image of the photo below for the one that we use in each of our bedrooms and next to our gas-burning appliances—i.e. the oven, clothes dryer, and hot water heater.

For travel purposes, we set them out in our hotel room and in the bedrooms of family and friend’s homes we stay at.

Better safe than sorry.
