Tablemate II – Add Table Space to Any Room 17Jul13

If you’re busy with projects around your house, you probably never have enough table room. The Tablemate II will help to create extra table space, right where you need it most. Tables tend to be where people gather, but you also need workspace for some of your tasks and hobbies.

Older people love the Tablemate II design, too. They may use them for dinners when guests are over, so that food won’t need to be balanced on plates in laps. The table will adjust to the best height, for whatever you’re using it for, and the cup holder avoids messy spills. The design of each table even keeps silverware from sliding off on the floor.

If you enjoy sitting on a comfortable sofa when you eat dinner, the tablemate ii makes your life simpler and easier. You can slide the table back out of the way after you’ve cleaned up dishes, and it will be right there the next time you need it.

Let the Summer in with Portable Screen Doors 09Jul13

It’s nice to let the few cool breezes of summer into your home, but who wants to put up with all the bugs that enter when you do? Portable screen doors use Velcro™ to attach to your door frame, and then close right after you go through them, with magnets.

They are easy to install, since they don’t require any hardware. Just use the included Velcro to secure the screen to your existing door frame and you’re ready to go. These screens are great for condos and apartments, since some homeowners associations and landlords believe that ordinary screen doors are unsightly and won’t allow their use. Portable screen doors are virtually invisible once you install them, and they won’t damage your door jamb, since they don’t have standard hardware needed to install them.

The screen in portable doors is made of a mesh fabric that is very light in weight, and made finely enough that it won’t allow bugs in. You just push through the door, even when your hands are full, to open. Your children and pets can go inside or outside without needing assistance. The screen will snap shut right behind you, so you’ll never have a screen door accidentally left open. They’re especially handy at barbeques and outdoor parties.

You can take the instant sliding door screen with you if you move, or are headed to your cottage at the lake for the weekend. You can even use it when you stay in motels or hotels that have sliding glass doors but no screens. Instant screen doors are handy to use, wherever you go. They are available in varying widths, so they’ll fit most any sliding door frame.

In the winter, you can roll your invisible screen door up and stow it away. It won’t take up much room at all. With many sizes available, you can be assured of a secure fit, regardless of the size of the door to which you are attaching it.

How Effective Are Wax Vacuum Ear Cleaners? 28Jun13

Physicians have warned people for years that it’s not safe to clean your ears to any depth using a cotton swab – or worse, a hairpin. They can push wax further into your ears, where it can create even more problems. They can even puncture the ear drum, leading to pain and possibly requiring surgery.

The Wax Vacuum Ear Cleaner gives you a safer way to clean your ears, without the risks associated with cotton swabs. It has a safety guard on it so that you won’t use it too deeply. All you’ll need to do is to attach a color-coded, soft silicone tip and switch it on after inserting it into your ear.

The controlled suction of the ear wax vacuum pulls gently and removes the water, dirt particles and wax from your ear. It is collected into a special chamber on the vacuum. When you have finished cleaning, all you have to do is unscrew the container and then empty it. You won’t believe how much wax and other debris can accumulate in your ear until you try a vacuum.

Cotton swabs are used for many purposes, and you probably find that they may end up everywhere in the house except where you need them to clean your ears. An ear vacuum has a lighted tip, so that you can easily see inside your ear before you use the vacuum. It’s s step in the right direction as far as ear hygiene, for adults and children alike. Younger children should have their ears done by an adult, though.

Ear wax vacuums are powerful, but they are still safe to use. The light is especially handy, so you can check out the ear before cleaning. The battery-operated ear wax vacuum also lets you clean your ears without leaving cords on the sink. It’s lightweight, portable and easy to use.

The Corn Zipper 23May13

Well, with Memorial Day around the corner, that just means one thing: summer is also right around the corner. Along with taking vacation, spending time outside, going to the pool, having barbeques, and making any excuse possible to find a way to get to the beach for a day or a few days, I also love the food in the summertime.

Every single week all year long I buy fresh fruits and vegetables to either eat raw or cook. You can always count on me to have fresh fruit and vegetables in my apartment at all times. corn zipperIn the summertime it gets so hot the last thing I generally want to eat is something heavy, greasy, and hot which is why fruits and veggies are my favorite, as I like my food in the summertime to be light and fresh. That being said, one of my favorite foods to eat in the summer is fresh corn. There is of course, a caveat to my love for corn and that is I will only eat it off the cob and cold. I know many of you think I am crazy…that grilled corn on the cob with butter and salt is the best food ever. But I am pretty certain there are others like me out there. So for those of you like me who hate to cut the corn off the cob, I found the perfect product for us: the Corn Zipper.

The Corn Zipper strips the corn kernels off the cob, and while the corn strips, the kernels drop into an attached half cup container so you will not lose any corn. Stripping corn off the cob using the Corn Zipper is not only a great idea to get those of us who do not eat corn on the cob to actually eat it, but corn is delicious in salad, pasta salad, tacos, and soups! So, the Corn Zipper will definitely be a product to help you in the kitchen all year around.

One Touch Weather Radio 20May13

The other day I was perusing the internet and I came across a product that really caught my attention. This is a product that has some serious potential, because it answers a reoccurring question I ask myself every morning – what is the weather? Now, with the One Touch Weather Radio that daily question can easily be answered. Other than traffic, I can’t think of any other information that could possibly be more important first thing in the morning than knowing what the weather will be for the day.

one touch weather radio

What I love about the One Touch Weather Radio is that it provides the weather instantly from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). By simply using the one-touch on/off switch, and the fine tune control to get the best signal, the One Touch Weather Radio provides the weather for the day quickly so you can get your day started on the right foot.

I am the type of person who loves knowing answers ahead of time; in this case I love knowing what the weather is before even getting out of bed. That way I have extra time to plan my outfit for the day based on the weather while I shower, etc. The One Touch Weather Radio solves this problem for me, and answers my most important question of the day.

Tools and Gadgets to Give an Amateur Chef 16May13

They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That’s not only true; it’s the understatement of the century. Being a good cook isn’t just a great way to nab a romantic partner, but even just to enhance the everyday lives of your friends and family.

There are few things more satisfying than having a group of friends over and cooking them a delicious and nutritious meal. There is an elemental feeling of community, comfort and safety that sharing a home-cooked meal with your friends and family brings about. This is something that the cook feels, the cook’s company feels, and that everyone takes with them throughout their day.

If you are lucky enough to know someone who is a great amateur chef, then you should do your best to support their passion. Not only will they feel great that you thought of them, but hopefully you will get to share in the bounty of what their new kitchen gadget allows them to make!

Before you think about getting any kitchen tools and gadgets for an amateur chef, however, you will want to remember one thing. If they really love cooking then they probably have all of the essentials. That means if you are going to buy something for them, you should make sure they don’t already have it. Next time you are over for a pot luck at their house, feel free to do a little snooping in the kitchen just to make sure you cover all your bases.

If you aren’t able to scope out their kitchen supplies beforehand, don’t fret. Here are a two kitchen tools and gadgets that they aren’t likely to have, but are certainly likely to love!

Digital Thermometer

While this seems like an obvious item that everyone should have in their kitchens, you would be amazed at how many amateur chefs don’t have something as simple as a digital thermometer. This, however, is one of those items that you might want to make sure they don’t have already.

Even if your friend is a vegetarian and doesn’t need a digital thermometer to make sure the turkey is done on Thanksgiving, it is still an incredibly handy device to have around. It can just as easily be used to stick in the middle of a casserole to see if the center is cooked, or to make sure the center of your frozen pizza is as done as the outside is.

This digital thermometer features a face that is about one inch across. You can set it to read in Fahrenheit or in Celsius.

Deluxe Ultimate Knife Sharpener

One thing that many people don’t realize is that a dull knife can be much more dangerous than a sharp knife. Think of it this way; if you are cutting a bell pepper into strips for your stir fry you are going to have a much easier time chopping it up with a sharp knife. Using a dull knife leads to the possibility of slipping right off that pepper and cutting a finger off.

New amateur chefs might not realize that even the finest kitchen knives need regular sharpening to keep them operating at top performance. The deluxe ultimate knife sharpener is an essential tool for every chef to optimize their cutting abilities.

This sharpener is made with incredibly strong steel carbide that has been carefully set at the perfect angle. The deluxe knife sharpener also has a non-slip grip so you can sharpener your knives with ease. It even has a 10-second sharpener so you aren’t wasting any time in the kitchen!

It’s time to repay the amateur chef you know and love for all of those amazing meals they have treated you to. These are just of a few of the amazing kitchen tools and gadgets out there to give an amateur chef!

Lady Bug Nail Polish Holder 25Apr13

In an effort to save a little bit of money in my everyday life, there are some sacrifices that I had to make. Besides giving up my gym membership, the most difficult thing I gave up was my twice a month manicure and month pedicure appointments. Now I do my own.

So, what is the big deal? Now I paint my own nails. Unfortunately, I do not do nearly as good a job as the professionals in the salons, and my manicures last maybe a week; not nearly as long as if I got them professionally done. Also, it is not as easy as it looks to dip your nail polish brush back in the  Lady Bug Nail Polish Holder jar without smudging the already-painted nails from the other hand. In comes my search and successful find of this helpful product: the Lady Bug Nail Polish Holder. This spill proof nail polish holder is just what I need to help make painting my own nails easier. The Lady Bug Spill Proof Nail Polish Holder holds the nail polish upright, and allows the bottle to rock back and forth without spilling – awesome solution!

I know it can be very difficult to save money and sacrifice things you love in order to save what seems like a small amount of money that you can “make up” later. Making these sacrifices can seem cumbersome especially if it causes us to do extra work; but if we find helpful products to help us accomplish our goals it will definitely be worth the savings in the end.
