Bounty DuraTowel

Bounty DuraTowelWhile you’re wiping your countertops with a used dishcloth, you could be spreading around the “ick” trapped within it. After just one day’s use, dishcloths can harbor and redeposit millions of germs on the surfaces you and your family come in contact with throughout the day. That’s why Bounty is proud to introduce DuraTowel, the paper towel that offers the things you love about dishcloths, without the millions of germs for a cleaner way to clean. Since it is designed with more fibers that hold together even when wet, it feels and cleans like a cloth allowing you to tackle your toughest projects.

Now, I know you are all wondering — how does it really work in my house. Well, I have to admit that I am impressed. We have given it a run for its money, and the DuraTowel has yet to disappoint! Will managed to spill an entire glass of an orange drink on my kitchen floor. No problem with that clean up. He then proceed to drop an entire glass of water. DuraTowel passed that test too. I used the DuraTowel to wipe down my fridge with some liquid cleaner. Not only did it clean my fridge, I had no tearing or anything. I even used the DuraTowel to wipe down my stove! At this point, DuraTowel has passed every test so far.

If you are looking for an awesome paper towel, DuraTowel is the one for you!


I love little gadgets that make my life easier.  Can I tell you how much I love Fishclip?

Now, this little gadget is both useful and well, cute.  The Fishclip help you to seal your food to keep it fresh.  They are safe for the freezer.  I love that you can twist and clip things like bread or fold and pinch things like chips.  You can leave your food in its original bags (and help save the environment).  The other part that I love about the Fishclip is that they are also refrigerator magnets!!!  When you aren’t using them to keep your chips fresh, they sit on your refrigerator.

Now these Fishclips are easy enough that my kids can use them without a problem (my kids are 4 and 8).  You literally just need to put your thumb on the tail and pull the fins back to close.  You just push on the fins to open the jaws.  It is really that easy!

If you are looking for a cute item that will help you save money in your kitchen, I highly recommend that you get a set of Fishclips! They can hold everything from bread to chips to veggie bags to coffee to frozen foods to cords!  There are just so many uses for them!

Progresso Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

I like soup especially here in Chicago in the winter time. Nothing is better to warm you up from the inside out and if it is low in calories, even better! Did you know that Progresso Soup can help curb your hunger, and it is available in 40 delicious flavors that have 100 calories or less? With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. I always feel like Progresso Soup is the “adult” soup on the market. It is filling. It is good and very flavorful. It is just an added plus that it is low in calories.
