Fail and Cool Finds

Happy Hump Day! Hope you all are doing okay. I failed to put on my Fitbit this morning. I put it on the charger to charge and upload data and walked out the door without it. Grrr... It is a tiny little bugger and just like anything else it needs to become a habit. Did not feel like cooking so I had PB&J for dinner. Ate too many graham crackers again. I just don't do well around crackers in general. Blerghhhh...

I have found some cool finds lately and I wanted to share:

The first one is Goo Gone Sticker Remover. I bought Bogey a litter box with a lid and flap door. The door had a large sticker on it and when I took the sticker off, the surface was all gunky so I put some Goo Gone on it and let it set for a minute or two and then took the scraper tool and it came right off! No residue and it even smells good.
The next item is the Kikkerland Easy Fold Step Stool I found this at Bed Bath and Beyond. It folds up for easy storage, is a fun color and it holds up to 300 lbs. I am only 5'2 so I am always standing on my tippy toes to reach things. I do have a foot stool at home (Rubbermaid) but I like the portability of this one. Plus it's a fun color.

The other useful item is the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I had a stain in the kitchen sink that I tried 3 different products on including straight bleach but it was still there slightly. I used the Magic eraser and it took it right off. Should have thought of it from the start. They do have super powered ones that I have not tried yet. I will let you know when I do.

The last thing I wanted to tell you guys about (sorry Matt and Patrick!) is the Shellac manicure. They still look pretty decent but you can see the outgrowth similar to acrylic nails that need a fill. They looked the best the first two weeks. I did a french manicure so I think that helped. Next time, I think I will try a color to see how long it lasts. I am not a manicure gal but it is nice to have decent looking nails. Until next time...

P.S. Did you enter the giveaway?
