March Challenge - Can Opener

The challenge this month is to purchase or make sure you have a spare can opener to keep with your food storage. You may have one in your utensils drawer already however this may disappear in a crisis.
My thought is that if you are able to get to your canned food, and it hasn't been blown/swept away, if you also have a can opener stored in the same place/container as those cans then you will be able to open them.

I try and purchase ring pull cans as much as possible, however not all cans have those.
I also want to make sure I have a can opener my children are able to use. If (heaven forbid) something should happen to me, they need to be able to open up our food storage as well.
It's a small thing, but it could make such a difference.

  1. From my experience, the real challenge is to find a can opener that works well. I had5 or 6, and only one works really well, so I ended up tossing the rest. What I would really like to find is one like my grandmother had which required a bit of muscle to use because it was basic a sharp blade with a rim catcher.
