When a fuse blows or the power needs to be turned off for some reason, you don't want to be frantically turning the house upside down to find a torch or your phone. Martha Stewart's blog shows us how a little bit of foresight ensures you'll always be able to see what you're doing in the fuse box.
I'd also recommend using a metal body torch, if possible, that uses AA or AAA batteries. The metal allows you to attach the torch to the fuse box with a magnet, and AA or AAA lithium batteries will ensure you won't have to worry about dead batteries for up to 15 years.
