Deflecto Caddy and Carousel Organizer Review

Deflecto Caddy and Carousel Organizer Review and Giveaway

Caddy and CarouselI recently took up a new hobby – sewing. When I was purchasing my sewing machine I made sure to do my research and make sure the machine I chose had the stitched and features I wanted. I carefully chose those first fabrics, and the matching threads. I read the patterns instructions from beginning to end, and cut the pattern with nothing less than perfection. I purchased the supplies and felt confident that first time I sewed.

With all the things that I did do, there is one things I DID NOT do – storage for all the accessories I would need as a sewer. As a sewer there is a need for thread storage, sewing machine accessories, scissors, and other implements and notions. When Shoplet reached out to me about reviewing the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer and the Rotating Carousel Organizer, I realized that this could be the storage I failed to get the first time around.

Jif Peanut Butter Granola Bars Review

Jif Peanut Butter Granola Bars Review

Jif EditedAs the Back to School season marches forward, the need for on the go snacks transitions into needing them for lunches. When I was growing up I rarely made my lunches and brought them to school. There was something uncomfortable about eating a meat sandwich when it was sitting in my lunch box for 5 hours.

When I really stop to think about it, I have always been sensitive to foods and their temperature. I believe that sandwiches should be cold. and very little should be warm. My favorite are snacks that are not effected by heat changes.

The best foods I have found are granola items, and peanut butter – both these seem to hold up no matter the weather conditions. Recently I was send the Jif Peanut Butter Granola Bars and being a perfect mix of granola and peanut butter makes them the perfect lunch snack. .

Medline Remedy Phytoplex Skin Cream and Protectant Wipes Review

Medline Remedy Phytoplex Skin Cream and Protectant Wipes Review

Medline Remedy Phytoplex Skin Cream and WipesWhen we are young we do not consider that the hands, hair and body we have is the only one we are given, and this must make it last in the best condition possible.

I am a crafter, and as a crafter I end up washing my hands many times, and this can cause them to dry and crack. It also happens when I do not drink enough water. As I have approached the age I am currently (almost 6 months into 40) I realize that keeping my skin and hands healthy is paramount next to my internal health.

I have done previous reviews for Shoplet in the past and each time I discover a useful item and this product review is no different.

I was sent Medline Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Skin Protectant Barrier Cream Cloths and Medline Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Skin Cream – Moisturizer.

The Medline Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Skin Protectant Barrier Cream Cloths are thick and soft clothes. The clothes come  or pre-moistened but that they are not sopping wet, but rather nicely moistened. The clothes leave skin feeling clean and moisturized and the cloths are non-irritating, non-sensitizing and have been pediatrician and dermatologist tested. The only precaution is that these are NOT flushable, so keep that in mind when using them. Each package has 8 thick pre-moistened cloths per package.

Smead Office Supplies Review

Smead – Redrope Tuff File Pocket and 3-in-1 SuperTab Section Folder Review

Smead File FoldersI have always loved the idea of organization and office supplies. When I was young my idea of a fun time was sorting items into colors, or themes and then placing them for display. When I got older I discovered the world of office supplies and was amazed that there were entire stores dedicated to this.

My father worked from home while I was growing up, so the need for organization and the utilization of office supplies were essential. The most difficult part was when the file folders tore and no longer served their function in life. The files that I had to reorganize were thick and not strong enough for the amount of paper work contained in them.

When I recently received the Smead Redrope TUFF File Pockets and the 3-in-1 SuperTab Section Folder. I remembered those frustrating days of reorganization.

Hammermill Laser Print Office Paper Review

Let me start by saying that the products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Hammermill and Shoplet.

Hammermill Laser Print Office Paper Review

Hammermill Laser Print PaperPaper is not something that is really given much consideration until it is needed. In this light most of the population grabs either a brand that they know and trust or on the opposite side of the spectrum, they chose a completely random brand and base the decision on price and not quality.

I am in a different category. I am a paper crafter and so I am acutely aware of weights, brightness as well as generally as being brand loyal. I am usually apprehensive to trying new papers because my printer like to eat paper despite keeping a watchful eye on it. I recently was sent a ream of paper from Shoplet and Hammermill. While they make many variations of paper, I received the Laser Print Office Paper to sample and test.
