Everbuying.com Handbags Review

I recently had the pleasure of receiving two awesome crossbody handbags from Everbuying.com. They are exactly the right size I needed and are working out fabulously! I had to start downsizing due to all the shoulder and back pain I have been experiencing and getting rid of the big oversized handbags was one of the things I decided I could live without.
Here are the two I chose to review:
The top picture is the front side view and the one below is the back side view. As you can see, it has a zipper compartment on the back side to store some small extra things. I used it for my cellphone for quick and easy access. That way I didn't have to bother with opening the handbag to grab it!
This one is really soft and the color is perfect for the winter! It looks big on the outside but it's really a crossbody type bag and just the right size if you are trying to do what I am doing and that is downsize. It's perfect! Just be aware that both of the bags I chose will not hold a lot of stuff, so do be sure that you want a small handbag if you decide to get either one of these! It comes in 3 other colors besides the black.
Product Details:
Handbag TypeShoulder bag
Pattern TypeSolid
Handbag SizeSmall(20-30cm)
Closure TypeCover
InteriorCell Phone Pocket
Main MaterialPU
Strap Length60-110cm (Adjustable)

This one is really awesome and can be used everyday but I am saving it for those times when I want to go somewhere really special and have a special handbag to use. I double checked the site and it really doesn't have a "name" associated with it so I am going to call this one Checked & Chain Bag. It comes in the beige color and also a black color. I almost got the black but knew my other one would be black and decided not to get two black bags. But, it sure is beautiful!

I wasn't really sure if I did this chain right or not since it came tucked inside the bag for me to put on. I think it looks right, what do you think? If I have put it on wrong and you know the correct way, feel free to leave me some suggestions. I thought threading it through the holes this way looked the best without making it look bad. There wasn't any instructions, so I just went with what I thought looked the best.

The picture below is the hardware on the outside and it also is a good picture of the texture of the handbag. It pretty much sums up what you will get and I thought it really showed how pretty the handbag is.

Product Details:
Handbag TypeShoulder bag

Closure TypeHasp
InteriorCell Phone Pocket
Main MaterialPU
Size (CM)(L*W*H)19*7*12

Package Contents1 x Shoulder Bag
There were ALOT of handbags to choose from and I finally had to stop looking and just chose from the first couple of pages or I might have never gotten through to the end. They have just about every kind of handbag you could possibly be searching for.  
If you love big oversized handbags, this site will be handbag heaven to you because it is packed with them. The prices are very good so you can buy several handbags for the price of what you might get one in a regular store. Of course, you are going to have a hard time choosing which one to get!

Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Cream Review & Giveaway**Closed**

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

If you need help with some joint or muscle pains, nerve pain and aches, well, I have one solution to tell you about today called Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Cream. The amazing thing about this cream, for me anyway, is that it does not burn like those you get in the drugstore! I am totally serious! I don't know about you, but I have unfortunately, done that by mistake forgetting I had that stuff on my hands!

I also like the fact that it is made naturally and what does that mean? No added unnecessary chemicals is what is important to me. I take enough medications for all kinds of things and don't need something else entering my body if I can help it!

I have been having some trouble with my knees again this past week and will be going to see the doctor on Friday, but in the meantime, I have been using this cream on them. Because they have been replaced with titanium and plastic, I am not getting 100% relief, but it is helping somewhat. I would imagine if I had not had them replaced, I would be getting much more relief.

Sometimes, you just can't win for losing, can you? I had hoped all my knee pain would be gone when I had them replaced back in 2009 and 2010, but here we are again! They are both swollen and feel very tight so I am hoping and praying that they haven't gone bad. I guess I will know more come Friday.

I can tell you that Mike uses it also for his back pain and he is getting quite a bit of relief, so I know it works. It also does work on other parts of my body when my Fibromyalgia is flaring up, so it is a good pain cream, just not sure it works on artificial joints! But, I will take whatever relief I can get and Noxicare does provide that for me, so I am still totally behind it as a means to get some pain relief.
Do you know how it works? Let's see if this helps you to see where it can benefit you the most:

Noxicare means fast, natural pain relief with:

• NO known side effects
• NO prescription needed
• NO greasy feel or strong smell
• NO harmful chemicals
• NO lab-produced pharmaceuticals
NO more pain
These are the ingredients that are in this great pain relief that will help you with natural pain relief:
**Willow Bark
**Rosemary Extract
**Holy Basil
**Boswellia Extract
**Alpha Lipoic Acids
All of those herbs play an important role in making this great cream work but the one that is the most powerful is the Turmeric. I have heard in the past that it has an effect on inflammation so I cook with it quite often like in spaghetti sauces, chili and veggie soups. I mostly put it in anything I cook that has alot of tomatoes in the recipe to help cut the acidity level down.
Ginger acts the same way but goes just a little bit further. It is suppose to help with nausea and with your digestive tract in removing gas from your intestinal tract. The only problem with me taking Ginger is that it is also spicy and that would make my IC (chronic bladder pain) act up, so I keep hoping someone somewhere will come forward and say yes, it really does work because I tried it!
You can also check out real people and their testimonies on using the Noxicare Pain Relief Cream by checking out the link I provided if you need more assurance than what I am saying. I also found out that you could get them in capsules if you don't care for creams. I take so many pills now I don't want anymore so the cream works best for me.
I took a small part of their insight on Noxicare Pain Relief and here is what I found out about some of the herbs and spices used in their cream:


 One of the most powerful natural pain relievers known to exist; recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is a powerful herb in the ginger family that contains cur cumin as its active ingredient. Cur cumin provides the health benefits of turmeric and turmeric extract, useful as an anti-inflammatory agent and as an antioxidant. Studies have shown that turmeric may help reduce the pain and irritation experienced by patients with irritable bowel syndrome and its anti-inflammatory properties help to naturally relieve pain associated with arthritis by reducing inflammation in the joints.

Willow Bark

Has been used for natural pain relief and inflammation since the time of Ancient Egypt and Greece. The use of willow bark dates back thousands of years when patients chewed on the bark to reduce fever and inflammation. Willow bark continues to be used today for the treatment of pain (particularly low back pain, tension headaches and osteoarthritis), and inflammatory conditions such as bursitis and tendinitis.


Helps relieve muscle pains, arthritis and rheumatism, and is a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of other herbs. Ginger is an effective anti-inflammatory agent used for thousands of years to alleviate arthritis, headaches, rheumatism and sore throat, while also naturally relieving muscle strains and knee pains experienced by athletes. The medicinal part of ginger is the rhizome, an underground stem that most people refer to as the root. Western herbalists classify ginger as a carminative, which settles the intestine and eases pain by removing gas from the digestive tract. This versatile and useful herb also serves as a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of other natural pain relieving herbs found in Noxicare™. 
There are 4 other herbs/spices in Noxicare and it would really be beneficial for you to learn about them and what they do. I am sorry I am short on space or I would have continued on telling you about them. I find it very fascinating when we can use everyday products to make ourselves feel better or look better. It would be worth investigating anyway!

Dragon Ore: Third Book in The Godland Series Book Tour

Well, we have come to the last book in the Godland Series written by Brian Rathbone. This one is called Dragon Ore.
Dragon Ore is the exciting conclusion of The Dawning of Power trilogy. Clinging to life, Catrin Volker struggles to regain her strength as her foes go in search of even greater power. Ancient enemies threaten and forgotten alliances emerge.
All the books were good and this one did not disappoint either. I hated to see it end but I don't think we have seen the last of Catrin because the way it ended with another vision into the future, there is something more coming down the road. Or it may be her children who go thru the next adventure. I guess we will have to wait and see what Brian has in store for us.

As for Dragon Ore, this is Catrin's last battle and she can go home to her father and Godfist, her homeland.

They battle a different kind of creature on the island of Firstland, which is where they believe it all started. Catrin also finds a new friend and ally there, a dragon called Kyrien. She helps free him from his prison and she also gets an additional piece of help in the form of Dragon Ore, which will aid her power in destroying the enemy.

She also finally meets Prios, who is also set free. There will be a special bond between Prios and Catrin that will stand the test of time. You will also see something awesome happen to Benjin, her protector and one of her guardians.

She also meets back up with Nat and his new wife and he foretells a new vision he had and Catrin also sees a vision that her father is in trouble. They make for Godfist to save him and her homeland from a new threat.

This last book in the series will not disappoint you and it ended pretty good for everyone. Even if Brian doesn't continue this series into the next great disaster, you will be satisfied with the ending.

Happy Reading!

Smile Brilliant LED Teeth Whitening Review & Giveaway**Closed**

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I love having white teeth, don't you? I recently got to try Smile Brilliant's LED Teeth Whitening Package that will help you attain whiter and prettier teeth in your own home without having to go to a dentist!
Here is what is included in the black box I received:
*High Intensity LED Accelerator Light: – Accelerates the teeth whitening process
*Teeth Whitening Gel Pen – Convenient, 4ml whitening pen (brush-on applicator) with 22% professional strength whitening gel
*Lip & Cheek Protector – Upper and lower protective tray ( prevents gel mess)
*Detailed Instructional Brochure – Guide to using your LED teeth whitening kit effectively

I have tried really hard over the years to keep mine white but they still get a little dark from time to time and need a little extra push to get them white again. I guess I could give up drinking hot tea and cold sweet tea, but I sure do love my tea and as long as I can whiten them at home with products such as Smile Brilliant's LED Teeth Whitening Kit, I see no reason to give them up. 
You guys know my story. I have so many health issues that there isn't a whole lot I can eat or drink so when I say I won't give up my teas, well, you know, it's one of the last things I can tolerate and I can only be pushed so far. So, that is why I am excited when I find a product that can help me keep my teeth fairly white and still get to keep my teas!
Simply crank the bottom of the pen to release an even amount of gel into the brush. Brush on, put in your cheek protector, turn on the light, and you are ready to go. See results in as little as 20 minutes a day!
The LED teeth whitening light has an estimated run time of 48 hours on one set of batteries before replacement batteries are needed. Replacement batteries can be purchased at most local drug stores.
Paint the whitening gel evenly onto the front surface of your front upper and lower teeth. Make sure that you spread the bleaching gel evenly and along the gum lines as well as in the crevices where your teeth come together. Doing it correctly will help prevent splotchy results.
The guard will likely periodically come in contact with the gel but avoid rubbing to ensure the gel stays in contact with the teeth for the duration of your teeth whitening session.  
After 7-14 full applications your teeth will be stain FREE! One pen = about 7 applications. Treatment times vary based on sensitivity levels and your schedule but the "rule of thumb" is the longer you leave the gel in contact with your teeth the quicker your teeth will whiten, but please do not leave on more than 3 hours at a time.

If you are the least bit concerned, always check with your dentist before trying any treatments if you have had some problems in the past with this type of teeth whitening. I would hate for you to have a bad experience. I have some major health issues and have been able to use this product without any side effects or problems, but each of us react differently to things, so if it would make you feel better, please talk it over with your dentist. I would rather you be safe than sorry.

I used their pictures to show you what to do because I am not good at taking self portraits and they all came out blurry so I wanted to make sure that you knew exactly what to do, so I did use their pictures but the steps and directions are correct and please don't deviate from them.

I thought this one question that I found in the FAQ's was pretty important so I am posting it for you to understand this product a little bit better.

How many times a week am I supposed to use the whitening gel?
The answer to this question varies per person based on tooth sensitivity and severity of stains. The average person with light to moderate stains should use the product daily for 4-7 days (1-3 hours per day) before all stains have been removed from the surface of their tooth's enamel. Those with more severe stains may need to use the teeth whitening gel and trays daily for as long as 10-14 days.  
Those with sensitive teeth will want to space their applications out with a day or two rest in-between treatments. Keep in mind teeth whitening is best described as teeth bleaching because it does not make your teeth white, it simply removes the stains from the surface of the tooth's enamel, thus restoring it to its original color.  
If you notice after several treatment's that your teeth are not getting whiter it is likely your teeth are stain free and they will not get any whiter.
I wanted you to understand that question and why this product worked for me is because I drink tea a good bit and know that I can get stains from drinking it so much. Which is why I noticed a difference when they got whiter. So, if you have years worth of bad dental hygiene and think this will solve everything, it might not. But if you are concerned about recent stains from something you ate or drank, then more than likely this will help you as it helped me.
If you have very sensitive teeth, you might want to get this product beforehand and use it to keep your teeth from hurting.
Here is what Smile Brilliant says about their Desensitizing Gel:
Don't let sensitive teeth keep you from a beautiful new smile. Smile Brilliant offers premium desensitizing gel to dramatically reduce tooth sensitivity. Our unique blend is a a sustained release, 5% potassium nitrate and .15% sodium fluoride (by weight), "sticky gel" formula. Our product is designed to be used as a pre-treatment with your custom-fitted whitening trays.

The product eliminates tooth sensitivity by temporarily sealing tubules on the surface of the tooth. This eliminates the opportunity for teeth whitening gel to penetrate those tubules and reach the more sensitive part of the tooth. We recommend a 15 to 30 minute desensitizing session before each teeth whitening session.  
About Smile Brilliant:
SmileBrilliant! is a national dental lab designed to help our customers receive professional strength teeth whitening without ever visiting a dentist! Our lab was specifically created to curb the high cost of cosmetic teeth whitening that is charged at dental offices around the world.

The Blooding of Jack Absolute & Jack Absolute The Novel Book Review

I have two historical books about Jack Absolute to share with you today and I did a spotlight on the 2nd book awhile back and here is the link to The Blooding of Jack Absolute to give you more information. I won't repeat that here, just give you a brief synopsis of the book. These were written by C.C. Humphreys.
Synopsis of The Blooding of Jack Absolute:
London: 1759: Life is easy for Jack Absolute, a young raconteur loved by the ladies and envied by his schoolmates. With a place secured at university and a baronetcy at hand, his future seems bright—if he can just stay out of trouble. But when Jack is caught read-handed with a powerful lord's mistress, his good fortune is destroyed, forcing him to seek a new fate in the dangerous New World during the brutal Frecn and Indian Wars.  
There, marooned amid hostile Indians and fierce colonial rivalries, the bawdy schoolboy disappears and a man emerges. Jack's survival depends on winning the friendship and help of the natives, but those come at a high price. In order to become the man they could eventually trust, Jack Absolute must first be blooded. And in order to be blooded, he must do the unfathomable. He must learn to kill.
Synopsis of Jack Absolute: A Novel:
The year is 1777. As the American Revolution rages across the sea, London is swept off its feet by Jack Absolute, the dashing rogue in Richard Sheridan's comedy The Rivals. That is, until the real Jack Absolute, former captain of the 16th Light Dragoons, returns after years abroad to discover this slander of his reputation.

Before he can even protest, he is embroiled in an illegal duel over a backstage tryst at the Drury Lane theatre. Jack escapes with his life, only to find himself pressed again into the King's service-this time, as a spy for the British in the Revolutionary War. With his Mohawk blood brother, Ate, at his side-and Loyalist beauty Louisa Reardon on his mind-Jack sets sail for the wilds of North America to face rebellious militiamen, rival Indian tribes, and the incompetence of his own superiors head-on.  
But when Jack learns there is a traitor in his ranks, he is dispatched as a double agent to root out the secrets of the Illuminati, a secret lodge within the Freemasons with their own agenda in the colonies. With no one left to trust and more blood spilling with each passing day, it's no longer clear if Jack is a spy...or the target.

From the streets of London to the bloody battlefields of Saratoga, from forest fights on the Hudson to the seedy corners of wintry Philadelphia, Jack Absolute marks the exhilarating beginning of an epic 18th century adventure and a character you won't soon forget.
These two books were actually full of adventure and with some history thrown in to boot! The books follow Jack and his many adventures from London to Canada to the early colonies in the United States. He has been a fighter, an actor, a dandy who loves women, writer and is a man of principle who fights for God and Country. Very loyal but in the end is tried for being a spy and almost killed.

His trusty Mohawk Indian friend, Ate, comes to his rescue just in time and helps him escape. There is a bit of sadness to this escape as they were not able to save the woman that Jack loved, Louisa. She was hanged and he was next to be put before the firing squad when Ate came to the rescue. He met Ate when he first got to Canada and was under the command of General Wolfe. They survived a winter living in a cave and eating bear meat. They had to kill several French men that winter.

But do not despair, as there is a third book coming that will probably pick up where he escapes from the prison with Ate and will more than likely tell us of more adventures that the two of them share. It seems like it is very hard to kill Jack Absolute!

You will actually come to love reading about his many adventures. I wasn't too sure at first if I could read a history like book but C.C. Humphreys made the books more like an adventure following Jack around in his travels.

This would make a good books to introduce your pre-teens or teens to history about the early days of the United States and how those wars came into being. The stories of Jack Absolute make the learning of history just a little bit easier because it is an adventure mixed with history that I think they would love to read about.

Happy Reading!

About the Author:

C.C. Humphreys is a novelist, fight choreographer, and actor who played Jack Absolute in The Rivals for a six-month run in London in the mid-1980s. When he became a full-time writer a decade ago, he decided to transform his leading man into a title character. Humphreys has written seven historical fiction novels including The French Executioner, which was runner-up for the CWA Steel Dagger for Thrillers 2002. The Jack Absolute series features three books: Jack Absolute, The Blooding of Jack Absolute, and Absolute Honour.

The Edwin Drood Murders Book Review

Release: September 24th, 2013
Publisher: Harrison Thurman
ISBN: 978-0-9853236-3-9
Price: $13.95
Pages: 305
I have a new Mystery book to share with you called The Edwin Drood Murders written by Christopher Lord.
The Droodists have arrived in Dickens Junction. Local bookstore owner Simon Alastair has his hands full in his role as co-chair for the latest convention honoring Charles Dickens's uncompleted novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. A movie star, a pesky blogger, dueling scholars, a stage hypnotist, and an old family friend (among others) all have claims on Simon's time.  
In addition, some Droodists are clearly more--or less--than they appear, including a mysterious young man by the improbable name of Edwin Drood. When a priceless ring and a rare Dickensian artifact go missing, Simon and his reporter-partner Zach Benjamin learn that someone will do anything--including murder--to obtain an object of desire.

The Edwin Drood Murders
is the new entry in the Dickens Junction mystery series that began with The Christmas Carol Murders, a book that New York Times thriller writer Chelsea Cain called "a love letter to both Dickens and to the small town amateur detectives who've kept the peace in hamlets from River Heights to Cabot Cove."
I have to admit that this book is quick paced and you really have to keep up with the story and the characters or it will leave you behind in some places, which is actually a good thing, because it makes you pay attention and you will enjoy the book more if you understand what all is going on.

There are several different plots going on at the same time is why I am saying keep up with what is going on. First there is the love story between the two main characters and then there is this convention going on that involves the people who love reading Dickens.

Then there are the people themselves who have come together. Some for good reasons and some are there to steal items and to commit murder.

You will want to reach in a few times and hit someone, or at least I did. It seemed like there were a few characters I took an instant dislike to and when that happens, I wish someone would deck them! But, that makes the book more interesting and also keeps me reading so I can see what their punishment will be by the end of the book!

It's load of fun and I learned a few things about Dickens along the way and so will you!

Happy Reading!
About the Author:
Christopher Lord was born in Astoria, Oregon. He now lives in Portland with his partner of twenty years and their Devon Rex, Miss Corey, the inspiration for Simon’s Miss Tox. He is hard at work on future books in the Dickens Junction mystery series.

Visit dickensjunction.com to read my blog and Simon's book reviews, and follow me on Twitter @dickensjunction.

The third Dickens Junction mystery, The Our Mutual Friend Murders, will be published in late 2014.

I decided to share this book with one of you, so I will be giving it away. It is a hard copy book and will be open in the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!

Zeta Touch Stone Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

You guys know that I have RA and Fibromyalgia, so whenever I see something that says it might help with either one of those, I try to get one so that I can test it out to see how much relief I get. That is why I got the above Zeta Touch Stone to review from Zeta Techbnology Group, Inc.
*Reduction of swelling, joint aches and pains
*Ideal for hand therapy and strengthening
*Perfect for traditional hot or cold and far infrared therapy
*Soothes muscle spasms and promotes increasing flexibility
*Cutting edge hand therapy product that provides natural relief from pain and stress
*Made in the USA
*FDA registered

Convenient and easy to use No skin irritation
  • Not Greasy
  • Non staining
  • No Electricity
  • Non staining

    This can be used to help treat symptoms resulting from arthritis, repetitive stress injury, stroke recovery and more.
    What the stone actually is:
    The Zeta Touch Stone – Acupressure Style is an exceptional hand therapy product, that provides pain and stress relief, and can be used to help treat symptoms of arthritis, repetitive stress injury and stroke recovery.  
    The Zeta Touch Stone – Acupressure Style is easily rolled between the users hands, and gripped alternately to provide the desired effects. Zeta Technology products are engineered to channel natural Far Infrared and other energies to the body. Zeta Technology products are safe for all ages.
    Preparing the Zeta Touch Stone FOR applications: 

    The Zeta Touch Stone does not need to be pre-heated or chilled for an effective far-infrared effect. It only needs to be in contact with the skin. However, by increasing the temperature of the disc, the far-infrared emission will be stronger.

    Cold Therapy: Place Touch Stone over ice cube for 30 seconds or longer. Touch Stones can also be chilled in freezer.

    Heat Therapy: Submerge Touch Stone in warm water at desired temperature - as warm as the user can comfortably tolerate, but no hotter. Submerge the Touch Stone for 30 seconds or longer.


    Each person reacts differently to the application of heat & cold:

    • Do not microwave, boil.
    • Do not overheat or under cool product to avoid harming the skin or tissue.
    • Do not use on open wounds or open sores.
    • In the event of skin irritation or other discomfort, discontinue use. If irritation persists, see a physician.
    • Not suitable for persons with diabetic neuropathy, heart disease or kidney infection, a history of frost bite or cold related injury, or peripheral vascular disease.
    • Heat and cold therapies should not be used by persons with any kind of metal implants. 
    Okay, here is where I wasn't sure if I should use this or not. The last statement says not to use if you have metal implants and I have had both knee's replaced so I wasn't sure if I should try this or not. To be on the safe side, I gave this Zeta Stone to my best friend who has some minor arthritis pain in her legs and she used the heat because she said it worked best for her that way.
    We both agree that cold therapy has never really done either one of us any good. But, because I didn't personally review this Zeta Stone, I can't say one way or the other how it would have worked with this stone.  I need to find out why you can't use if you have metal in your body. This took me by surprise so I am curious now as to what would happen if you did.

    They have a lot of other products besides the Zeta Stone to try for pain management but until I figure out why people with metal in their body can't use these, I guess I won't be trying anything else for now. I am still puzzled over this and hope I can get someone to explain to me what the problem is and what will it do to me.

    Okay, I dug a little deeper and found out that I can use this product because it involves my hands only, not my knees. Here is where the confusion lies. It is an FDA requirement that this warning be on the packaging because the product can be used for hot/cold therapy. The Zeta's products are used for far-infrared therapy and that is why they have to put that warning there, which is what confused me. But, the warnings do not apply to me and the use of this product for my hands. The products are absolutely safe under any circumstances.
    About Zeta Technology:
    Zeta Technology produces a range of therapy products that provide pain and stress relief. Using unique patented technology, these products channel Far-Infrared and other energies to the body, reducing pain, swelling, and surface bruising. Use Zeta therapy products to help treat arthritis, repetitive stress injury, muscular inflammation, and to provide overall stress relief.
    I am providing the link to the video testimonies since I wasn't able to give a 100% review because of the issue with my metal in my knees. This way you can listen to some others who have used the stone and see what they have to say.

    Ultra Pro Coupon Album Books Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
    I recently received 3 different sizes of Coupon Album Books to review from a company called Ultra Pro.
    Here are the albums that I got to review:
    The 3 sizes are:  2" 3-Ring Coupon Organizer Binder with 40 Coupon Pages, 9-Pocket Coupon Organizer Portfolio and a 4-Pocket Coupon Organizer Portfolio.
    Out of all three, I really like the small 4 Pocket Coupon Organizer the best because it fits in the side pocket of my car and it's always there when I need to check it really quick anytime I am near the grocery store and need to run in and see if I need anything.  It's the smallest one in the polka dots with the scissors on the front cover in the group picture above. Overall Dimensions - 6⅜”x 8” x ¾”.
    • Super Clear, Heavy Duty Pages
    • Made in U.S.A.
    • Pages are Acid-free and no PVC
    • 4 Pockets per page
    • Pocket size - 2 ½” x 3 ½”
    • 80 Pockets Total
    Then the 9 Pocket Coupon Organizer is the next one that I use the most for at home to keep them organized and ready to transfer over to the smaller one if I need them right away.  This is the perfect size if you have a small family or are doing what I am doing, using it for stuffing the coupons I see on the fly while going thru magazines, websites and such and then later I will go thru and put the ones I think I will right away into the one I keep in my car. Overall Dimensions – 9 ⅛” x 11⅝” x ¾”.
    • Super Clear, Heavy Duty Pages
    • Made in U.S.A.
    • Pages are Acid-free and no PVC
    • 9 Pockets per page
    • Pocket size - 2 ½” x 3 ½”
    • 180 Pockets Total
    Now, this is the one that is the 3 Ring Coupon Binder. I am not sure I would need something quite this big so I am thinking of giving it to my daughter who has a larger family to keep up with. This one is really big and can hold a lot of coupons! This binder expands and can hold up to 80 pages! Overall Dimensions - 10⅞” x 11 ⅝” x 2”.
    • Super Clear, Heavy Duty Pages
    • Made in U.S.A.
    • Pages are Acid-free and no PVC
    • Pre-punched 3- hole design

    • Organizer includes 40 total pages with 235 pockets:

    10 each – 9 pocket pages (pocket size – 2 ½” x 3 ½”)
    10 each – 8 pocket pages (pocket size – 3 ⅞” x 2 ¾”)
    10 each – 3 pocket pages (pocket size – 7 ⅞” x 3 ⅝”)
    5 each – 6 pocket pages (pocket size – 2 ½” x 5 ¼”)
    5 each – 1 pocket pages (pocket size – 8 ½” x 11”)
    You can get all of these coupon organizers in some different patterns than the ones I got so if you see one you like, there are other options if you don't like the patterns that I got. Of course, there isn't a whole lot to choose from but you do have some choices, I believe that there are 5 patterns for each size of coupon organizer and they are actually all pretty cool looking so I think you will find one that suits you.

    I have to collect coupons to make my grocery shopping come under budget and if you are like me, then you will want to have at least one of these amazing coupon organizers so that you don't leave anything at home and end up paying full price for something that you have a coupon for. Another trick I use is to download my digital coupons onto my grocery card if your grocery store has that ability. That way you won't miss any by mistake if you don't see an actual physical coupon anywhere else.

    Solid Cordz Extension Cable Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    I recently was sent a pack of 5 Solid Cordz Extension Cables to review and I was really puzzled at first what in the heck would such a short cable be used for? Well, leave it to my husband to figure it out along with the guys that he works with. He took one to work with him one day and when he came back, we were both like, duh? I felt very dumb not knowing what they could have been used for!

    *Liberates the power strip
    *A staple for any Technophile
    *Perfect for the office and home
    *Get the full use of your power strips and outlets with our high-quality liberating extension cords
    *Just plug those big bulky power adapters into our cables and plug the cables into those previously unusable outlets
    *Replace multiple power strips with one unit by utilizing slots!!!
    Well, I am going to have to admit, I have been under the weather much of this month so when I used this cable, I forgot to take a picture of what we did with it! I feel so completely out of it! It was such a great idea, too! We had put up a tree in the office because the window faces the road and when we went to plug in the lights, it was short by just a few inches! While I didn't take a picture of the actual plug going into the wall, I do have a picture of the tree and thanks to Solid Cordz, the lights were able to work!
    One of the Solid Cordz was perfect! It was exactly the right length that we needed to make up the difference and I guess I was pre-occupied with getting the presents under the tree, it totally escaped me that I should have taken a picture of how we used it. So, I will use some of their pictures to give you some ideas as to what you can use them for since I messed up by not taking such an important picture!
    Product details:

    *Part Number SC-3001
    *Item Weight 1 pounds
    *Product Dimensions 8.7 x 4.8 x 2.5 inches
    *Origin Imported
    *Item model number SC-3001
    *Item Package Quantity 5
    *Cord Length 1 Feet
    *Usage Indoor Use Only
    I don't know about you but do you have one of the above or below outlets that has 8 slots in it but when you go to plug in those big plug ins, they can only take about half because of the size? Well, that is another example of how the Solid Cordz can help. They are small enough that you can fit them all in!

    *Convenient & money saving 5-pack
    *12-inch length to provide a clean, organized look
    *Equipped with a 16AWG wire gauge
    *Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed
    *CSA Approved for top quality
    *Heavy-duty molded ends
    Another thing my husband and his work friends came up with is this: Have you ever bought something, like Christmas lights or outdoor Christmas decorations and then they didn't fit in the outlets that you have? Well, we used the Solid Cordz to plug those into so that they would fit into our outlets and they worked! I am so glad that they came in packs of 5 because we used every last one of them! Yes, we do put up a lot of Christmas decorations on the outside!
    Oh, and if you need something larger, they do have 6 and 10 foot extension cables available also! If you are not satisfied with this product they offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee, no questions asked! Can't get much better than that! But, I don't think you will be returning them because they do so many different odd jobs around the house that you will definitely use them.

    Buy these amazing Solid Cordz on Amazon!
