In the right setting, I can be an impulsive buyer. For the most part I am thrifty, but sometimes I let my moods sway me, and I end up buying something I want to try without considering the cost. This is what led me to purchase these.
I picked these up at a discount store in W.VA. and paid $20 (ouch, I know).
I've mentioned my hubby likes to eat high protein, and one way he does that is too eat hard boiled egg whites. Sooooooo I thought this would be an easy way to fix them without having to peel the hard boiled eggs. Here are my thoughts.
You can only make six eggs at a time.
Each egg requires assembling 4 pieces.
It's a little difficult to get all the egg in the opening without some running down the side.
To get the eggs out, you have to unscrew two pieces and take the pieces apart.
When you're done you have to wash all the pieces.
Pro: My 15 year old said they tasted better than regular hard boiled eggs.
Conclusion: In my opinion it's easier and less trouble to just peel the eggs than to go through all these steps to avoid peeling.
My next purchase was a little more personal, so I apologize in advance. I needed a more comfortable bra, and so at Target one day I saw this and picked it up.
This is the only picture I am showing of this product obviously. Nobody is frightening anyone around here. I believe this was $20 also for two bras.
Pros: It is very comfortable for an around the house bra.
Cons: For a larger chested woman I don't think it gives enough support to look dressed up outside of the house; probably for a smaller chested woman it would be fine.
The pads inside move around especially when you wash it, but they aren't too hard to get back into place.
My next three products were given to me by family members.
Target online lists this brownie pan as $19.99. I've used mine twice, and it is nice to have all the brownies perfectly the same size. It's a little more trouble than a regular pan to clean, but not a big deal.
These hooks range in price from $1-$6 online, and I think I've even seen them at the dollar store (Sorry for my crumpled packaging).
I really like these hooks for hanging pictures that aren't too heavy, especially since I am notorious for not using wall anchors because pounding in a nail is just too easy (Never mind, that in the middle of the night before, we have heard a loud crash and then searched the house for the reason, only to discover the next day that a picture had slid down the wall behind the couch due to my great hanging job).
Using these hooks is as easy as a twist, and they seem really secure. The package says it holds up to 35 pounds which I have not nor probably would test with that much weight, but I am pleased with how they've worked on what I've used them on.
This under the bed shoe organizer sells for between $3-$5 on amazon. I hadn't taken mine out of the box till this week, and it is really flimsy. There isn't any cardboard in it to keep the sides, bottom or dividers firm, so mine did not stand up very well like the one in the picture. It holds a dozen pairs of shoes, and I used mine to store out of season items.
It will keep the dust off your shoes, and it slides under the bed easily.
Hope these reviews are helpful!
