Light Bulbs
Posted on 01.19.11 by myproductreview @

I just don’t understand how those spiral light bulbs are better for teh environment. They have so much more toxic crap in it than the other traditional bulbs. Sure they last longer but how many people really dispose of them properly which mean that there is a huge amount of mercury and toxins that are being buried in landfills.

Roo Tide! Beat the Spartans
Posted on 01.09.11 by myproductreview @

Roollllllllllll Tide! Beat the Spartans.

Content by Donny Vinson

We just made our plans to go to the Capital One Bowl on New Year’s Day in Orlando. This should be great! It means we get to go to Florida for New Year’s. We will probably drive down on Monday, Dec 177th and spend a couple days at the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, drive back up to Orlando on New Year’s Eve and party in Orlando that night. I must remember to set my home alarm (cellguard adt alarm Milwaukee) since we will be gone so long. Kasey and I have been to Ft. Lauderdale a couple times and we like it a lot. We probably won’t get much beach time, since this cold weather has been hitting us so very hard. But maybe they will have temps at least close enough so that we can get near the beach. This year has been such a let down from last season, but we cannot stay on top forever. With Ingram hurt at the beginning of the season, we were lucky to end up playing a New Year’s Day bowl as it is. And if it were any team but Auburn and that cheater Cam Newton playing for the championship, I could deal with it easier. Oh well, we will still have a fun trip and I know the Tide will roollllllllll all over the Spartans. We will have a great time.

Children’s Bedtime Treasures
Posted on 12.23.10 by myproductreview @

When it comes to your children some of the best things you can do is read to them right before they go to bed. Children’s Bedtime Treasures is a great selection to choose from and the kids really love the fairy tales that have entertained children for years. Reading is just so great and so beneficial to children….books make for fabulous gifts.

Rent a Carpet Cleaner
Posted on 12.09.10 by myproductreview @

When it comes to a clean carpet…who would not want one! But instead of paying for someone else to do it why not save a little money and do it yourself and rent a carpet cleaner austin. Cleaning your carpet just got a whole lot easier and it is a great time of year to do this since you may be having people over for the holidays. You can get the best rug steam cleaner austin has to offer right online.

Why go out and wpend a smell fortune on one that you may only use a few times a year when you can get a great one just to rent for a fraction of the cost. You can read up all the steam cleaner review austin has at The Steam Team. I know that my carpets are horrible…if you have children and/or pets then you know how filthy and how quickly a carpet can and does get on a daily basis let along a yearly basis!

Wool Pillows
Posted on 12.06.10 by myproductreview @

I am looking to get some wool pillows. My sister has some and they are just so nice. And they will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And what I love is that they will not have chemicals in them or fire retardant toxic poison because wool is naturally fire proof. All natural is the way to go these days.

Pinzon Velvet Flannel
Posted on 12.05.10 by myproductreview @

I never thought that flannel could get softer and softer with every single wash. These sheets are so soft and comfy in the colder months. And there are so many colors too. The quality is there too and on amazon they are always marked up to be on “sale” but the price that you actually pay is pretty much the same for sheets but these are so much better.

Disney Movies
Posted on 12.05.10 by myproductreview @

Disney movies make for fabulous gifts. My sister has all the vhs disney tapes…but her VCR broke and they are really not all that easy to find anymore which is very upsetting because there are so many people that have those VHS home videos that they will not be able to play someday because VCR’s will not be around to purchase!

Use Gloves
Posted on 11.29.10 by myproductreview @

When it comes to cleaning many people do not think to use and wear gloves and it is really important unless you are using natural products like baking soda and vinegar which is what I have been using lately and I love it because it is keeping the house clean and it is smelling nice and there are no toxic chemicals I have to touch.

TV Stands
Posted on 11.29.10 by myproductreview @

So, you finally got that great new TV…where are you going to put it. You have to start searching for nice tv stands and there are some really nice ones out there too these days. I personally love the ones that have the TV in the system and you can make the TV “disappear” when it is not in use. Those are just so cool. However, the tv is always on over here so I guess I wouldn’t need something so elaborate. The solic wood stands are very nice too – easier to keep clean looking as opposed to the glass stands.

Humidifier
Posted on 11.22.10 by myproductreview @

Personally I have found that a humidifier that does not require that filter works better because the filters just get so moldy and dusty. And after 3 weeks you are out again getting a new filter for around $20 a pop…that just crazy. So, I like the filterless ones. You have to clean it more often but saves money!

Ceiling Fans
Posted on 11.04.10 by myproductreview @

I think that ceiling fans are great to have in all sorts of rooms and you can use them all throughout the year. In the summer they will help to keep your rooms cool and then in the winter it can help to distribute the heat in your home more evenly actually lowering your heating bills. And they are great to have in the kitchen for when you are cooking up those holiday meals….or in my case when I accidently burn that new dish that I am not use to making yet :)

Custom Blinds
Posted on 10.20.10 by myproductreview @

When it comes to window’s there are so many options out there to dress them up. Whether you want drapes, curtains or those custom blinds there is so much to choose from and they are in many different kinds of fabrics and colors as well. Shopping for your home is sometimes so much fun because you can customize it to your own specific tastes. I personally love blinds because you can either put them up or you can just open them.

Tempur-Pedic Pillow
Posted on 10.18.10 by myproductreview @

I have a tempur pedic pillow and I just love it. But I got one for my husband last year and I thought that it just needed to be broken in and it would soften up after a while but it is still as hard as a rock. It is very upsetting to because these are very costly pillows. If you can get them on sale that is so much better because they are just way overpriced.

C9 Led Christmas Lights
Posted on 09.12.10 by myproductreview @

The summer is officially over when you start talking about C9 led christmas lights. But now is the time to get them. People are trying to get rid of their old inventory to make room for the new stuff. So, you have prices that are discounted and affordable. I actually need a new tree this year – I had the led fiber optic tree and it is really so pretty but it has fallen down too many times. They have to make the bases more sturdy on them. And I like the led lights because they do not heat up and they cost so much less when it comes to your electric bills.

Disposable Wiping Clothes
Posted on 09.05.10 by myproductreview @

I have to say that I loved these Disposable Wiping Cloths that I got to try out. They were great to clean with especially the mirrors and the windows. And they didn’t leave a film or anything because the texture is different from a paper towel. I do a lot of cleaning on a daily basis and I clean up a lot of messes – from spills to potty training messes. When you have kids you are in constant cleaning mode. These would be a great addition to any kitchen or bathroom cleaning supplies. Care Cleaning and Protection did give me the products to review but I did really use them and would purchase them in the future.

Outdoor lighting can also set a nice ambiance if you are getting it for your back yard and your patio area. And you do not have to spend that small fortune anymore getting great lighting to make your home look fabulous!

Making Your Own Patio
Posted on 08.19.10 by myproductreview @

It may seem hard to do but with a little hard work and some help perhaps from a friend it can be done. Sure it may not be done in 2 days like the professionals but you will save probably $2000 which is a huge savings. And in my opinion it is worth it. Sure you will be making some mistakes but you will get better and when you are done you will like it so much more because you did it!

Birdfeeder
Posted on 08.19.10 by myproductreview @

I got a birdfeeder from amazon and it is the one the will keep the squirrels away….well this thing was impossible to put together!!! It was horrible. You never want to hammer a metal pole in the ground because regardless of how you do it – it will mess up the top and then you will not be able to put the pieces together!

Modern Furniture
Posted on 08.11.10 by myproductreview @

When it comes to decor…everyone has their own style. My sister has more of a modern furniture taste and her home is very chic while mine is not. My brothers is extremely contemporary and my fathers is all country – we all have very different tastes and there is furniture and decor out there for everyone. Sometimes it is just fun to redecorate a room every few years. Change up the furniture, decor, the color and curtains….just give it a new and different look. It can be a lot of fun and you can be creative as well. And you don’t have to spend a small fortune making your place look fresh and updated.

DVR’s
Posted on 07.18.10 by myproductreview @

I know that my sister could not live without her DVR. She doesn’t watch al that much tv during the day because she doesn’t have to worry about missing her favoite shows…shich is mainly her soap operas. She can just DVR it and watch it later at her convenience. And the best part is that she does not have to watch all the commercials. Sometimes she will be home and she just chooses not to watch it at that time because she does not want to view the commercials. And you can get DVR for DIRECTV shcih makes things so much eaiser. Technomlogy has come such a long way to make things more convenient for the consumers.

You can check out the DVR for Time Warner Cable or the DVR for Dish Network and you will find that they are very popular products. I was reluctant on getting a DVR because I didn’t want to learn how to use it. How ridiculous is that because my grandmother can use it and it took her 2 years to figure out how to use an answering machine when they first came out in the 80’s. This way if you are at the market or if you are out somewhere you don’t have to feel rushed to go home quickly to watch you show.

And DirectTV just seems like the way to go these days. It seems to be less expensive and you get so much more…more stations that are in HD and just more stations in general. And for some reason the cable companies keep increasing their prices but they are not giving you any more and you can only get that one time intro rate bundle. My company are not good to their loyal customers. But the DVR works for both dish and cable which is great.

Grow Lights
Posted on 07.17.10 by myproductreview @

The vegetable stands are just starting to really open up because the crops are starting to come in. I actually just fixed up an area and set up a garden for myself but obviously I did this too late in the season but next year at this time I will have a ton of really great vegetables and stuff to eat. I can actually even start them early and from seedlings if I just get some grow lights and start in the early spring indoors rather than outdoors.

Patio Cushions
Posted on 07.15.10 by myproductreview @

I have always wanted a nice patio. I was tempted actually this year to go out and get the stuff to make it myself but I really wanted a garden this year so that has been my big project. But I do have a nice swing that has patio cushions on it. I usually change the cushions every 2 years. I have them one way and then the next year I flip them so they look new again and not faded because of the sun from the year before. There is a huge difference between cheap and quality cushions though…you don’t want to sit on the cheap stuff. Spend a little extra to get a really nice cushion to relax on!

Home Security
Posted on 07.07.10 by myproductreview @

When you have that family…the most important thing is to keep them safe and sometimes that requires adding things to your home. A home security system is always a great idea and in the long rung the cost is well worth it if it will insure safety and give you that piece of mind that you need to know that you family is safe. And there are so many companies out there. In fact you can go to http://www.broadviewsecurity.com/ to read up more about security for your home.

Gone are the days where you can go to sleep with your doors unlocked because you know that nothing bad would happen. People do not even know their neighbors anymore let alone trust leaving your doors open to them. It is always a great idea to read up on the consumer reports for the different security companies so that you can get the most reliable system and company out there. It is not so much the system but it is the company that you go with that has to be on top of things to help protect you and your home.

Tree Stumps
Posted on 07.01.10 by myproductreview @

I have this tree stump in my back yard and my uncle was suppose to come back and get rid of it…but he never did. So, now what do I do. It has been a few seasons now since the tree was cut down and there is not termite damage so I think that I am going to gut out the trunk and then plant some things in there. I think that would look really nice….maybe even put a nice pole for a flag in it as well.

Wood Blinds
Posted on 07.01.10 by myproductreview @

My parents had a finished basement that had that wood panelling and as 1970’s as it looked I just loved it and would have it done that way if I ever had a basement that I could finish. And they also had the wood blinds – it was really nice and almost rustic looking but it was not a log cabin or anything. But the basement was nice like that. My mom hated it because she said it was just too dark. She wanted whitewalls and to have them painted white but it was my Dad’s Lair…he is the one that always went down there to watch his tv so he got to keep his paneling and that “woodsy” look.
