Best deals on fire prevention
Simply put, the only fire extinguisher you'll ever need. The Home1 tackles wood, paper, trash, plastics, gasoline, oil and electrical-equipment fires. Oh, and it's rechargeable.
We could regale you with some of the 31,000-plus five-star reviews that this trusty Home1 extinguisher has received at Amazon, but sometimes a single happily ending anecdote is the best recommendation:
"My wife used the Instant Pot on the stove and accidentally turned the stove top on, which then burned the Instant Pot, causing a very large flame. Luckily I had this under the sink ready to go and blasted it once to get flames down to turn off stove, then blasted it again.... All in all, I had this blaze under control in less than 30 seconds. IT SAVED MY HOME! My family and I are very grateful."
With its wireless setup and sturdy construction, this cam can stand up to the elements while keeping an eye out for a whole nother kind of undesirable element. Speaking of standing up: How's two years of battery life sound?
Lest we bury the lede: This 3-pack is 50% off! Of course, you can't put a price on your home security, but it's sure nice when it's this low. Use Blink's app to customize the motion zones around your home and to allow real-time communication with visitors, welcome or not.
"What an awesome wireless system — buying more," trumpeted one of the Blink's 89,000 five-star admirers out there. "Total install took 25 minutes. I put three cameras up outside to monitor my summer home. One I places on a pole in the yard pointing at the roof so I can monitor snowfall and snow melt.... I shared the app with my wife and she was up and running in two minutes with minimal effort."

Designed for industrial mishaps, this kit may mean the difference between life and death right at home. Stow it in a cupboard or hang it from a wall; the metal box opens easily, with the lid serving as a prep surface.
The brawny metal box and convenient handle mean that this sprawling kit is ready for grab-and-go emergencies, whether you're dashing from the garage to the basement or the hall closet to the sidewalk. In addition to 80 bandages of various sizes, you get antibiotic ointment packets, antiseptic towelettes, tweezers, a cold pack, burn cream, nitrile gloves, scissors and trauma pad and more.
"Loving my first-aid kit!!!" said one tres satisfied shopper. "Exactly as described.... I feel as if I now have a backup plan that meets OSHA guidelines at home. Very nice, hard, sturdy box to secure my 80 band-aids and other supplies."
