Whether you live in a house, an apartment, or your parents basement we are all looking for ways to save space. There never seems to be enough of it. The fridge is always full (hopefully), your desk is always cluttered, and your closet? You cannot even get a foot in it! I am always looking for ways to save space and make my life easier in the process. Here are a few products I am currently obsessed with to remedy this issue.
Are you a beer connoisseur? Is your fridge in a constant state of stocked? So stocked that you barely have room for your food? Well then you need these magnetic bottle holders, or the Bottleloft, as it is appropriately named. The Bottleloft is a series of magnetic strips that you hang on the ceiling of your fridge. The strips are strong enough to hold even the fullest bottle of beer. This clears up more shelf space for the important things like dip and other party essentials! Get the Bottleloft for $38.00.
But wait there’s more!
Are you constantly bombarded with business cards? Your dentist, your lawyer, even your kids babysitter has one! Where do you put all of them?! All they do is cause clutter. Well not anymore! With the Mini Filing Cabinet you can store your business cards, and other small important pieces of paper, safely. Get the Mini Filing Cabinet for $30.00.
And some more yet!
Are you like the average American and have at least five different remotes but only use one? You do not know what the other four remotes are for but you dare not throw them away, just in case! Well then you need the Remote Control Organizer. It has four slots for all of your useless remotes! And for only $9.99 it is a steal!
Its cold outside, that is a fact (unless you live in a lovely tropical area then in that case never mind) but for most of us this is the season where the weather gets cold and we do not want to leave our homes. I just want to snuggle up in my room under my blankets with the heater on and never leave. The only problem with this (other than the fact that I am an adult with responsibilities that cannot be preformed from the comfort of my home) is that heaters cause your electric bill to skyrocket! I mean really! It is ridiculous how much your bill goes up when you rely on a heater for warmth
This is why I recommend investing in a heated blanket. Its cheaper and warmer because you are getting that direct heat instead of having to wait for your room to warm up. Of course, it makes it harder to get out of bed but we will deal with that when the time comes.
There are a lot of options out there. The cheapest option I have found is a Sunbeam Heated Fleece Electric blanket for $29.96 from Walmart.
Of course it is only a twin size, bigger sizes are more expensive, but if it is just for you then it is fine! It comes in nine colors: Seashell, Slate, Garnet, Mushroom, Acorn, Newport Blue, Walnut, Lagoon, and Ivy.
If you’re feeling fancy and want to upgrade you could opt for the $139.99 Thermal Zone Fleece Blanket from L.L Bean for a queen size blanket. The only difference is it’s body mapping technology (not sure what that means). It comes in six colors: Baltic Blue, Flag Blue, Ivory, Pale Moss, Sea Grass and Wheat.
I really don’t see that big of a difference. I think it is just a brand thing. All I know is you can order both online!
Have you ever been shopping at a Brookstone store or checked out their online selection? If you haven’t, it’s definitely something you’re going to want to check out!
Brookstone is a great place to shop. They have so many gift ideas and smart solutions that I could shop here for hours! Brookstone carries electronics, outdoor living items, bar and wine gear, furniture, games and toys, bath and spa accessories, travel items, pet supplies, fitness things and so much more. These items truly are unique and are perfect for a variety of occasions: birthdays, weddings, housewarming parties, graduations, and so much more.
You should check out their site if you haven’t, or stop into a store near you to be able to see these great products up close.
Mother’s day is coming up rather quickly. If you haven’t purchased anything for your mom yet (or haven’t even thought about it yet), I suggest you get a move on! Since the big day is only 6 short days away, if you’re wanting to order something online I would order today or tomorrow.
Right now, Amazon is offering their Kindle Fire HDX for just $199. This is usually $229, so if this is what you want for your mom, then I’d take advantage of the deal! Heck, if it’s something you want for yourself, I would take advantage of this deal! With this purchase, you are also eligible for 20% off of select accessories. If you have an Amazon Prime account, take advantage of their great shipping deals as well!
As you know from my last post, I am getting a new phone soon! I am really excited. After doing a little more research, I am NOT going to stop into my local Verizon Wireless store and get my phone. Instead I am going to order a phone from Best Buy Mobile.
They carry phones and plans from all of the big carriers: Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and T Mobile. One of the phones I was looking at in the Verizon Store and the Samsung Note II is $299.99. The SAME phone at Best Buy Mobile is only $199.99! Can you believe that? I would’ve spent an extra $100 for the same phone! I’m SO glad I found out about Best Buy Mobile.
