Being a student doesn’t exempt you from being prepared in case of an emergency. A time of emergency is not the time to dig out this list, it is before things happen. We’ve discussed the items you should include in an emergency kit before, but we wanted to talk today about some ways to get those items and keep them stored on a budget since back to school shopping sales are a great time to pick up some items.

Today is Father’s Day!! We’re hoping all the folks that fill the role of Dad have had a great one! We’re sure you all did something great for your dad figures, but especially since we’re coming up on the first day of summer, why not plan ahead to give Dad a whole summer of awesomeness? Here are a few of our ideas starting with the technology:
Do you have a piece of wood furniture, say a table or a chair, that looks dull or has been sitting in storage so long it has lost its luster? If you’re a big fan of wood in your office area or even your living room while you code your new blog or go on a video game binge but have no interest in taking shop class, this how to can help you!
April is Organ Donation Month! Even though the month itself is almost over, we at ThePinkC cherish the idea of organ donation. Ellie was an organ donor and helped save the lives of several other people through her gifts. Organ donation isn’t something most people jump out of bed thinking about and it revolves around a topic most of us don’t want to think about. But organ donation doesn’t have to be morbid and it can be straightforward to make happen. Every day someone is in need of an organ and there isn’t one available. If you’re confused, scared, worried, or even over the moon about organ donation, there are a few things we think you should do.

In the US, today is the first day of Daylight Savings Time. This change to and from Daylight Savings Time is great for remembering that you should not only change your clocks, but check your emergency kit and check your fire alarm/carbon monoxide detector batteries. While I’m a public health geek through and through, my emergency kit isn’t only food and flashlights. I have tech supplies too! Below I’ll cover both, but think about setting these up more as a marathon not a sprint. Trying to acquire even just the home emergency kit can cost quite a bit of money so for many of us it involves some saving and some bit by bit shopping.

Every college student needs textbooks. Some high school students need to purchase textbooks. Grad students and professors never stop buying textbooks. So how can you manage to get these books without totally running out of money? We’ve got some suggestions that we’ve perfected over the years. Everyone buying books fits into one of four categories: I Am Never Going to Keep These Books and I Don’t Want a Hassle of Reselling, I Am Never Going to Keep These Books but I Want Some Money Back, I Am Going to Keep Some and I Don’t Want to Keep Others, and I’m Keeping Everything.
