Lea's Favorites

Yes siree, it's time for a few of my favorites................

Folks, if you don't know or have never used these, you need to go and get you a stash.  I've been using them for years.  I use them for my vitamins  (I take my handful at dinner) if I happen to be eating out and I use the for my vitamins when I travel.  And, I use them to put mints in sometimes.  And, of course, for any daily medication that you may take, they make carrying individual doses very easy.  And, men can slip them in their pockets easily.  They are like a mini size thick plastic ziploc bag. They can be found in most all pharmacies and of course, Amazon.  

I seem to have a need for a tiny screwdriver quite frequently.  Recently I needed one to work on a pair of glasses and to get into the battery compartment on something.  I could not find one around our house so I went to the tool aisle the next time I was at Wal-Mart.  I found this neat set of tiny screw drivers  and snatched them up.  There are three with phillips heads and three with plain heads and they have this neat case to store them in.  I got plum excited over this purchase and now when I need a tiny screwdriver, I'll have one! ~it's the little things folks~

Recently a friend told me about this bedside alarm clock.  Well, it's more than a clock.  It's also a charging station for your gadgets and a thermometer.  I have owned a lot of alarm clocks but none this small and easy to use.  You can dim or brighten the digital numbers to your liking.  It is about 5" X 4", takes up so little space.  I don't use an alarm clock but I have to have a clock on my bedside table so when I wake up in the night I can know what time it is.  It is the best I've ever owned by a long shot.  AND, guess what, you can order yourself one off Amazon for a little under $40.

I may have mentioned this ladder in a previous post but I'm not sure and you need to know about this ladder.  This is a lightweight, space saving ladder (9#) and so easy to use and I cannot tell you how much I use mine now that we have a house with high ceilings.  I'm pretty safe to say I use it most everyday.  It has a wide top step which adds to the safety of it.  It also comes in a 4 step and there are times that I wish I had gotten it, but the 3 step meets the majority of my needs.  There may be other vendors but I purchased mine from Frontgate.

This Black and Decker cordless hand vac is the handiest item in our house.  I have had 2-3 of these over the years but this is the best by far.  We use it for quick cleanups all the time and it has a brush attachment that flips down if you need to use that and is great for upholstery.  If the Grans have crumbs on them they love for me to get it and vacuum them off.  I use it to give my car a quick clean out too.  It has enough suction to do a whole lot of things.  Once used you just place it back on the charging base and it will be ready for your next use.  And, of course, you can order it right now off of Amazon. 

And, there you have it, another edition of my favorites!

  1. You always come up with the neatest things. I may have to check out a couple of the items at least. Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you in blogland again next week.

  2. Good suggestions, really like the screwdriver set, we invested in a good stepladder to and can't imagine how we ever got along without it.

  3. I love to read about and get ideas from your favorite items, Lea! Thank you for sharing, and happy weekend to you.

  4. I love those little plastic bags for travel. I use tiny ziplock ones that I buy on Amazon. I use to by them at a flea market in Florida. Love those screwdrives. Bedside alarm clock sounds interesting too.

  5. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite blog posts! You do come up with the best things and some good tips and suggestions. I will have to try out a couple of these at least. Enjoy your week-end!

  6. Love the cordless hand vac - definitely need to pick up one of those.

  7. Lea. thanks for sharing all of your tips and items with us. I have pouches like that too and guess what I used mine mostly for? SPICES! Sometimes I get on a "let's make some spice packs" or "rubs" for meats kick! My three daughter's love it when I do that as they all get some of mama's homemade spices and rubs. The little pouches are perfect. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. Look at all your wonderful gadgets!
    I too live those little pouch baggies and use them on a regular basis. I liked Cindy's way of using them for her home made spices and rubs.
    I have searched forever for a small alarm clock and to no avail. I will have my Husband look on Amazon. Thank you!
    We do not use an alarm clock washer, but I too want to know what time it is should I wake up in the middle of the night.

    So nice to visit with you, dear Lea~~


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
