Every time the power goes off I kick myself for not having a standard corded telephone in the house. All my phones are cordless, and DO NOT WORK when the power is out. I figured that in an emergency storm or bushfire situation, I may seriously want to make a landline phone call – so I bought a tiny little corded telephone. It was only around $4! It’s not something you’d want to use everyday, but it works well enough, and is now stored in my Black Out Bag along with some torches, candles, radio etc.
