Here are a few I am sharing with my Momâ€™s Time Out group this morning and thought I would share with you.
#1 Vacu Vin Pineapple Corer Slicer
Ever since my trip to Hawaii a few years ago I loves me some fresh pineapple. The stores around here charge $1 more for a sliced pineapple. I searched high and low and read tons of reviews and ordered the Vacu Vin off Amazon.
Look at it in action.
After I slide the pineapple off the Vacu Vin I slice the whole thing in fourths and store it in the fridge. Then I remove the core and use the pineapple shell for a little bowl for my fruit dip. It makes a pretty table presentation.
Stacyâ€™s Fruit Dip
1 block of softened cream cheese
1 small jar of marshmallow fluff
splash of vanilla
Whip it together and store the leftovers in the fridge.
#2 Razor Scraper
Whenever I clean my countertops or stove top and I have dried
Mod Podge, paint, food on it I use a razor scraper to remove it. No need to soak crustified gunk with a cleaner just scrape it off lightly with a razor scraper. You can find them for a couple of bucks at Home Depot or Lowes.
Be smart people, it is a knife. Donâ€™t dig it into your countertop or stovetop.
#3 LOL Mabelâ€™s Labels
Ok now Mabelâ€™s Labels in one of my sponsors but it really is a â€œgreat idea.â€ I have these LOL labels that I mark sippy cups, bottles, snack traps and plastic containers. The best part about them is that they are dishwasher/microwave-safe and UV resistant. They wonâ€™t wash off, peel off or fade away. You get 45 of them so that should last for years. The ladies at church love me because my childâ€™s stuff is marked. Amazingly enough, I never lose sippy cups anymore.
Speaking of these snack trapsâ€¦if you have a 1-3 year old these things are the best. You put Cheerios or whatever in them and they can get their chubby little hands in but the snack doesnâ€™t fall out. The brand I have is by Munchkin. You can buy a 2 pack at Amazon also.
I did not get paid by Vacu Vin nor am I an Amazon affiliate. Mabelâ€™s Labels is one of my sponsors but they did not pay me for this post nor for my love of their product.
