Vegetable Steamer and Coupon Code


I love this vegetable steamer! I have wanted one of these for as long as I can remember so when the chance came up to review it, I jumped at it! Keep reading for the coupon code so you can 30% off your own purchase.

Vegetable Steamer http://fave.co/2azCAk4

When the opportunity for this review came up I was all over it. I think most of what I have in the kitchen is probably close to 15 years old. My knives are dull, my vegetable peeler no longer does much of anything, and my pots and pans are all scratched and dented. Needless to say, I need some new stuff in the kitchen.

I got this the other day and I had to use it right away! I had brussel sprouts in the fridge that I used it for. You put about an inch of water in a pan large enough to hold the steamer. Put your veggies in the steamer. Bring the water to a boil. Place the steamer in the pan above the water until the veggies are done.

So very easy to use. The last one I had, had a handle on the steamer itself. Let's just say, that was not a good design idea. The handle would get very hot. This one has a detachable hook that you use to place it in and take it out of the pan. This hook does not get hot because it is not in the pan while the steaming occurs.

So this design is so much better and it worked great. Ok, so I promised you a coupon code for 30% off. You can get this product on Amazon at:  https://www.amazon.com/Vegetable-Steamer-Basket-Kitchen-Deluxe/dp/B00ZE2YUJG and use the coupon code of 30KDELUX to get 30% off your purchase.

If you do make a purchase be sure to stop back by and let me know how you liked it.
I received this product for free or at a discount for my honest review.

Have a great day!

Renee

Quote of the day for January 23, 2017

Life

Slowly things are getting back to normal. Aarron's leg is healing, he can drive his truck again (it's a standard). Life is beginning to settle back into its little rhythm that I have missed so much.

10169255_10152345114219555_7024250470804417978_n.jpg

A few months ago one of our ducks passed away. So Meena has been by herself for a while (well with the chickens but by herself as a duck). She seemed like she was feeling a bit lonely. So, we found her a new home with other ducks.

A__92CD[1]125.jpg

Now she looks much happier. I miss her terribly though. She would talk to me every time I would go out to the chicken coop. Now it's so quiet out there. It's strange. I mean my chickens still talk to me a little, but they are just not as loud as Meena is. I have to go out to the coop to hear them.

Meena used to yell at me when I would step outside at any point during the day or night. So things are quieter here now. I'm sure my neighbors are happy about that. Although none of the ever complained about it.

Anyhow, that's my update for the week. Things are getting back to normal. Things are quiet again. It's nice.

Have a great day!

Drool Bib for Teething


This drool bib is for use with the Ergobaby 4 position 360 baby carrier which can also be found on Amazon at http://fave.co/2apNXLk

Drool Bib http://fave.co/2aru17x

I love the design on this because it's very simple. There is not a lot going on that could distract your baby to the point of frustration. This drool bib is placed on the baby carrier to help keep it cleaner, meaning less laundry. Yay! Who doesn't like less laundry?

Drool Bib http://fave.co/2aru17x

The drool bib and pads are backed with a plastic (Polyester) type material that will block the wetness from going all the way through to the carrier. The front side, that the baby will drool on, is very soft. The front side is made of 100% cotton.

You can find this product on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Teething-Pacifier-Accessory-Waterproof-Baby/dp/B01FBPCSOO?ie=UTF8&tag=dailydeal0c6-20.

The drool bib will button to the front of the baby carrier and the drool pads snap around the straps of the baby carrier. They work to keep the baby carrier dry, which means that you have to wash it less often. This also means that by washing it less often, the baby carrier should last longer as well. So, all in all, this will help you to save money because you won't have to repurchase the baby carrier until after your little one has grown out of it. Who doesn't like to save money?

The design on these is a dark blue bird on a cream colored background so these can be used for either a boy or a girl.

Have a great day!

Wireless Mouse

This Wireless mouse is great! It works very well. My husband loves it.

Wireless Mouse https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=wireless+mouse&field-brandtextbin=acctrend

This mouse has a button on the top of it that will allow you speed up or slow down the speed of the pointer. There are buttons on the side of it that will allow you to page forward or page backward. This mouse is available on Amazon. At about $10 it's practically a steal for how well it works. It appears to be made well as well. Aarron's been using this mouse for a couple weeks now and it all still works as it should. For this I give this product a big thumbs up!

This mouse has a USB plug that you plug into the USB slot on your computer. Once it's plugged in, turn it on, let the program download, and it's ready to go. Super easy to set up and super easy to use.  I don't know about you, but I like easy. I'm one that is technologically challenged. So, when it comes to anything to do with a computer or cell phone, easy is what I need.

Wireless Mouse https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=wireless+mouse&field-brandtextbin=acctrend

This mouse is listed at 1600 dpi. Now I have no clue what that means, but Aarron says that means it can be very fast. So far he absolutely loves this thing. He said that it works really well. He uses it on a laptop and runs it just on the small area under the keyboard. He sets the mouse speed at it's highest and he has no problem using this in such a small area.

So, all in all, this is a great product. It works well and works as it says it should. Because of this I have to give this a 5 star review.

Have a great day!

Ever since I had my first child, cabinet locks have a part of life. I have to be honest and say that I absolutely hate them. However, I still use them because I want to make sure my kids can't get into anything they shouldn't.

Cabinet Locks http://amzn.to/29ZKTnA

This is a new type of cabinet lock. They are magnetic. Because I have a love/hate relationship with cabinet locks, I am trying to be objective on these. I have found several pros to these locks over the typical locks. First off, they are easier to open. You just place the magnetic "key" against the lock and it opens.

It is so much easier than fighting with the older types. Another pro for these locks is that the set also comes with 4 electric socket covers. I still have these on every outlet that does not have something plugged into it.

The final pro that I have found with these locks would be the construction. It's a thick plastic so they should last for a while.

Cabinet Locks http://amzn.to/29ZKTnA

Now for the cons. Honestly, other than the fact that I don't like cabinet locks, there is only one thing that I can find wrong with this set. It is a little too possible to lose the "keys". The package says to place them somewhere safe, out of reach of the kids. However, my problem seems to be that when I put something in a safe place, I can't ever find it it again.

All in all, this is a great set to keep the kiddos safe from all the household chemicals that we tend to use. You can get your set on Amazon here.  Compared to other cabinet locks this set is a little pricey at 27 dollars, but I think the construction of them makes it worth the money.

Have a great day!

Have you ever tried glass drinking straws? Me either. Until now that is.

Glass Drinking Straws http://amzn.to/2arKYxL

They come packaged in a nice box that could be used to give this to someone else. The way they are packaged insures they should not break during transportation. This set comes with 6 glass straws and a brush to make cleaning oh so much easier.

Glass Drinking Straws http://amzn.to/2arKYxL

I have to say, that for me personally, I still on the fence about these straws. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that there is nothing to throw away and yet I can still use a straw with my drink. I just don't much  like that they are glass.

I tend to be a bit accident prone so I'm afraid I will end up with glass in my drink when I break one. Not to mention with kids around, they are bound to get broken. My kids are all a little older, but it still seems that I can't keep anything glass around for too long.

So while I do love the idea of these straws, I just wish they were made of something other than glass. They are really easy to clean with the brush. It gets the edges all the way through with little to no fighting it. I also love that they are clear so you can tell when they are clean. As a final pro to getting this set, it's not overly expensive.

However, I have a set of stainless steel straws as well and I love that I don't have to worry about them breaking. So, all in all this is probably not something I personally will buy again, but for those who can use and keep glass around this would be a great option.

Wall Clock

Are you looking for a new wall clock? I may have found the one you want!

Wall Clock http://fave.co/2ajMVMU

I know this picture doesn't show it very well, but it has a humidity meter and a temperature scale inside the clock as well. I have to say I was a bit surprised at the size of the clock. It's pretty big. I know you can't tell by the picture but it takes up almost the whole wall here.

I know that our house is small (we live in a travel trailer), but this clock is big! If you need a clock for someone having trouble seeing most clocks, this would be the one you want. It is easy to read, even the two smaller gauges inside the face of the clock.

Wall clock http://fave.co/2ajMVMU

This is a better picture of the gauges inside the face of the clock. Yes, my house is really that hot right now. Our A/C died a few days ago. Anyhow, I like the looks of this clock. So far, it has kept time (it takes one AA battery, not included), and the gauges appear to be working properly.

It will go with just about any decor. The rim is a silver rustic looking color. The face of the clock is almost a cream color. It was very easy to get it up and running. This is definitely a keeper for me. I love easy, and this clock certainly fits the bill. Put the battery in, set the time, put the cover back on, and hang it on the wall. So far this one has been running for 2 weeks on the same battery.

You can get yours on Amazon here for $36.80 (price is subject to change). I received this product for free or at a discount for my honest review.

Have a great day!

Quote of the day for January 23, 2017

Solar Lights

My Dad is in need of a new porch light. We live out in the middle of nowhere so it's very dark when the sun goes down. I saw these solar lights and thought I would give them a try.

Solar Lights http://fave.co/2ajLkq9

I love the design and they look good on my Dad's trailer. While they do work well, if they are in direct sunlight all day long. If they are not in direct sunlight all day long, they will not work for the entire night. They only worked for about 6 hours under direct sunlight for 4 hours a day.

Solar Light

So all in all I only gave them a 4 star review on Amazon. The way my Dad's house sits, there is no way that I can put these near the front door (which is where we need the light at). The design is good, but the solar part I guess isn't very well thought out. I don't know of anyone who could put these at their front door and have them work all night.

They come in a set of two for $16.98 on Amazon. The price is good and they do work. But if you need something that is going to last through the night, you have to make sure the solar panel on the top of the light is in direct sunlight all day long. Otherwise they will only work for about 6 hours (this is just an estimate).

Overall, I do like these lights as they worked better than the last one I got. That one has the same problem with the solar charging, but it only worked for 3 days. Now it doesn't come on at all even if it is left in direct sunlight all day. So, this set does work better and it does provide the light in early evening and night so I guess I can't complain too much.

Have a great day!
