I HATE housework, period….exclamation point! I hate sweeping, moping, dusting, vacuuming, doing dishes, etc. I figure that most of you probably feel the same way as me, so I have been on a quest to find products to make live easier.
When it comes to mopping, I hate getting my hands dirty trying to wring out the mop head. I have tried other mops, but I like the O’Cedar Easy Wring Spin Mop best. This one keeps you from having to bend over, and it can wring the mop head almost completely dry. All you do is put the mop in the little spin cycle, and step on the lever as much as you want to get the water out. Clean hands – woohoo.
Let’s see a show of hands from those of you who enjoy ironing. I know I see Sandy’s hand up. She takes great pride in a crease that will cut you. Me, not so much. When I read about Downy Wrinkle Release spray, I was a little skeptical. I bought a bottle and took it with me on my trip to Tennessee. After everything is packed, it always comes out wrinkled. I took a top and sprayed it with the Downy, then smoothed it out, and let it dry while I was getting ready. I was shocked at how good it turned out. Don’t get me wrong, it does NOT look like you ironed the garment, but it no longer looks wrinkled. Here is the bottle I bought, and here is a travel size canister.
I found these little beads online and I just had to share. This is for cleaning round objects that are hard to get your hand in, like your coffee pot, or wine decanters. You pour in the beads, swish them around for about 2 minutes, and that is all. My coffee urn is stained something fierce, I think this will be a future purchase.
I keep a roll of this fashion tape handy at all times. It is perfect for hems that come un-done, keeping bra straps from showing, or I put a small piece between the buttons on my shirts to keep from having a peek-a-boo show. Lol!
When I go to the grocery store, I usually come out with 8 or 10 little shopping bags. I hate having to make several trips from the car to the house, so I grab as many bags as I can in each hand, and then struggle to open the gate to the house. My grandmother had a saying, “Laziness overloads.” I’m afraid I am guilty. When I saw these handles, I thought that this looks like the perfect little helper. It would appear that I was not the only over-loader out there. Hahaha
Speaking of laziness, this is the product for me. iRobot Roomba Vacuum cleaner robot will take care of all your vacuuming needs. I have a robot cleaner for the swimming pool, so why not one for the floors? They navigate your room and backs up when it hits an object. I have actually heard great things about these little guys. This one had fantastic reviews.While I hate cleaning, I LOVE shopping. It is the paying for the purchases that I hate. Haha Let’s talk about this outfit. Gray and yellow are two of my favorite color combinations. I am addicted to yellow this year, probably because it just makes me think of spring. Sunny and happy are the emotions I feel wearing yellow. If yellow is not a color that looks good up close to your skin, then wear a scarf to soften the look. Or wear yellow in the pants, shoes, or purse. Here are a couple yellow cardigans that you will like. Even though one is blue, it comes in yellow on the website.
Here are a couple plus size cardigans.
My dark gray ankle pants are old, like really, really old. They are a pair I bought from Old Navy eons ago. I like dark gray, it goes well with lighter colors, and slims your lower half. Here are several nice pairs. Remember, if the picture shows a different color, the website has the item in the color I am talking about.
Here are the plus size versions.
I have on the same shoes that I wore here, here, and here. They are an old Kathy Van Zeeland pair that I bought at the QVC outlet store here in Grundy. Here are several similar pairs that range from 14.99 to 355.00. Can you pick out the most expensive pair?
My flirty pleated hem tank top is a real show-stopper. I bought this at Classy Closet, but their website seems to be down at this time. I will look for similar ones for you.
Goodness, there are a lot of links in this post. The remaining ones are going to be a little more simple.
Purse is Aimee Kestenberg, Similar | Similar. Tassel necklace is Premier Designs, Similar, Similar. My silver Boyfriend watch was a gift, Similar, Similar. My snakeskin bangle was purchased at the vintage fashion show, Similar, Similar. And my Chloe & Isabel wrap bracelet and earrings finish up the jewelry. Remember, if you make a purchase and do not already have a merchandiser with Chloe & Isabel, type my name in the Find A Merchandiser slot. Thanks!
WHEW! Saturday is rough on this gurl.
