Martha Stewart's favorite expression, "It's a good thing," describes the subjects of my post today. I'd like to share some of the things that make my life easier or more pleasant, some of which you probably already know about and use, but, hopefully, you will find something new to try.
First, I have a confession to make -- I am a paper towel addict, to the point of almost panicking when there's only one roll left in the pantry. But not just any paper towel will do -- it has to be Bounty, and preferably the SUPER MEGA size. There's nothing more annoying than having to stop what you're doing (usually with wet, drippy hands) to replace the roll of paper towels, and that's why I love the MEGA-size rolls:
I don't know how much "disinfecting" they really do, but it makes me feel better to wipe my countertops down with them several times a day, and it certainly can't hurt anything.
These disposable "Zoo Pals" cups with lids are perfect for little ones. There are 14 in a box, and each 8-ounce cup comes with a "sippy cup-style" lid. Made by Hefty.
My favorite gadget is my Lightweight Ryobi CORDLESS Blower with 18-Volt Lithium Rechargeable Battery.
Well worth the $99.00 price tag at Home Depot. I don't know what I did without mine. It's perfect for blowing off the porch or patio, and even the garage, and there's no cord to get wound around stuff or trip over. Just put the battery on the charger when you finish, and it's ready for next time.
Another one of my favorite gadgets is my Swiffer Duster, with the extendable handle that extends up to three feet and pivots and locks into four different positions.
I also keep one of the short-handled dusters in my car and "swiff" the inside of my car when I'm going through a car wash, or caught in a traffic jam (not that I have a Type A personality, or anything).
I always like to hear about new products that save time and energy, and would love to hear about your favorite "good things."
