These are awesome storage containers that are totally airtight and keep food amazingly fresh. I also like that they are watertight which makes them perfect for transporting liquid foods like soup. The hinged lids are easy to close and the plastic is BPA-free. I highly recommend them!
Review: Equate Triple Antibiotic Plus
Just as good as the name brands
This ointment has virtually the same ingredients as the more expensive Neosporin ointment and works just as well. It helps ease the pain of minor injuries and provides protection against infection, plus it costs a lot less.
Review: Pyrex 19 Piece Bakeware Set
This terrific bakeware set from Pyrex contains a variety of baking dishes, including custard cups. I especially like that it comes with lids which makes them great for storing leftovers or for transporting casseroles. It's excellent quality and I've been using mine for years and have had no issues.
If you can't travel to all the amazing places in the world, you can always do it vicariously through Samantha Brown. She is the enthusiastic host of several shows on the Travel Channel, including this one. Episodes in Season 2 include Boston, Chicago, Montreal, Minnesota, Maui and many more. I don't own this DVD but I have seen all of the episodes on TV.
What I like about this series is that... more
In my house, it's an ongoing battle to control the dust around all the electronics but this product helps a lot. It helps control static charge, is easy to use and I've noticed that the dust doesn't return as quickly as it does if I just use a cloth with no product. I also like that it's safe for electronics and is also oil-free so there is no wax build-up.
Review: NeilMed NasaFlo Neti Pot
Not as good as SinuCleanse
I normally use a SinuCleanse Neti Pot for my nasal irrigation but NeilMed was giving these away so I thought I'd try it.
This pot is much rounder and taller than my regular pot. It also has a lid and a bulb shaped tip which the Sinucleanse doesn't have (it doesn't need a lid - I've never had water come out the top opening). The one thing I noticed immediately on taking it out of the box is... more
These are awesome cookies! They're sprinkled with sugar and are perfect for dunking in milk or coffee. I like that they're crispy but with each buttery bite, they melt in the mouth.
Cleans well, smells fantastic!
This laundry detergent does a great job at getting my clothes clean but what I especially like about it is the awesome scent. It's fresh and clean and lingers even after the clothes are dry. It does tend to be pricey but I don't need to use as much and I try to buy it on sale and use coupons.
This bra is affordably priced, very comfortble and launders well without losing its shape. I also like that it has a racerback so the bra straps are hidden under my racerback tops. It provides good support for walking but may not be enough for serious running.
Review: Thinner, by King
Thinner is an excellent book written under Stephen King's pen name of Richard Bachman. All of his books are creepy and this one is no exception. It tells the story of Billy Halleck, an overweight lawyer who kills an old gypsy woman with his car and then gets off with no charges. Angered by this, the gypsies put a curse on him and he begins to lose weight for no apparent reason. Compared to... more
Review: Lavender Vanilla Candle
I like Yankee candles because of their excellent throw and awesome scents. The Lavender Vanilla is one of my faves. The scent is very light, not overpowering and leaves my house smelling fresh and clean.
Good for shower shaving!
This is a good mirror for shower shaving, which my husband likes to do. It has a locking mechanism that holds the suctions cup securely in place and it also has slots that can hold 2 razors. The one negative about this mirror is that, over time, the fog-free properties have lessened considerably, but since we've been using it for close to 5 years, I still feel we got our money's worth. We... more
Great design, easy to use
I really like this pitcher. It's sturdy and well-made and the design makes it easy to grasp and hold while shaking or pouring. The lid tightens securely and also has a lift-opening so you don't need to unscrew the lid to pour. There are also measurement markings on the outside. Although I've read some reviews stating that the pitcher leaked, I haven't experienced that with mine and have been... more
Fantastic magician film
This film came out in 2006, the same year as The Illusionist. And although they are both period pieces set at the turn of the century and they both involve magicians, the storyline of The Prestige is quite different. It focuses on the rivalry between two magicians, excellently played by Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. It also has more of a sci-fi theme and, in my opinion, it's more complex... more
Review: Mainstays 27' Drying Rack
Portable and convenient
I love having this rack. Gone are the days of having to drape clothing over the dryer, shower rod or whatever else I could find. This nifty wooden rack has lots of room, plus it's lightweight and foldable so it's easy to move and store. I'm very glad I bought it!
Lathers like there's no tomorrow!
I love these puffs because of the amazing amount of lather they generate with almost any kind of body wash. They also help keep my skin smooth by providing gentle exfoliation. They come with an attached string for convenient hanging in the shower. Over time, the puff will stretch out and become less effective. This is true of all the puffs I've ever tried, not just this one, but since they're... more
Pricey but worth it
Although I don't have major issues with my breath, I tried this brand because I like my mouthwash to be alcohol-free and the other brands I tried just weren't that great. This one is fantastic! It neutralizes and freshens and lasts a lot longer than other mouthwashes. I like that it's not minty and overwhelming - it basically leaves your breath smelling like nothing. Because it has no alcohol... more
This has been an excellent air purifier. I like that it's affordable and does what it's supposed to do. We use it in the bedroom and it has helped tremendously with my dust allergies. I've also noticed that when cleaning, the amount of dust is less than it is without the purifier. It uses both a HEPA and carbon filter, has 4 speeds and a digital display. It can also be positioned flat or... more
Review: Coleman 48 Quart Chest Cooler
Very sturdy, works well
I like this cooler because it's well built, keeps food cold and it has a hinged lid so I don't need to worry about it getting blown away or lost. We've had ours for many years and it still going strong!
