Disaster preparedness

Sure, if there’s a flood or a blizzard or whatever, you’ll have all those Amazon boxes to keep you warm (or to turn into boats!), but will you have a solar light, radio, weather band, battery charger, siren, cell phone charger and apple corer all in one?

If the apple coring part is negotiable, you might want to check out this deal on a Survivor 10-in-1 jobbie. Just $10 shipped for today, or absolutely free if you’re a new Google Checkout user.

These may not arrive in time for Christmas, but it’s a great item to have in your emergency kit. (Really, you’re not going to be making pie, post-apocalypse… let the apple corer go.)


  1. Yay! This is a GREAT deal. Be sure to click on Budget 7-9 day mailing for free shipping, otherwise it’ll automatically slap a shipping chart on. What do I need an apple corer for anyway?

  2. Thanks Mir! I’ve been wanting one of these forever…unfortunately I used my Google $10 to get a free USB drive but still, $10 shipped for this is great! Also, my kids are going to love you Christmas morning due to all the awesome Amazon deals I’ve found through you…you rock girl!! Kim

  3. Thanks for the FREE just-in-case-item. And thanks to Heidi for pointing out the Budget shipping.

    As Tom Petersen in Portland, Oregon used to say in his appliance/furniture store ads: FREE is a VERY good price! Amen!

  4. I’ve never used Google Checkout but it isn’t coming up as discounted. It still wants to charge $10. Hmmm.

  5. My honey got on board and ordered on for when the power goes out at the office. Which is a bad thing, see, ’cause it’s a technology center.

  6. Awesome! I can’t believe I just paid 92 cents for this! Great gift for Hubby.

  7. Sweet!! Thanks for the great tip. That might be the best 50 cents I ever spent!
