Product Reviews – Packaways

Last week I was sent a few Packaways.  Packaways are reusable storage boxes that fold flat so that you can easily store them when you aren’t using them.  When you do need them, you simply pressing on the corners and they pop open and lock into place. I was sent two different sizes, medium and large.  The boxes are made of a very sturdy plastic and can easily stand up to wear and tear.  Hannah tossed them around the living room for a few days and even dumped most of her toys in the large one, … [Read more...]

Product Review – JOEmo XL Travel Mug

A few weeks back, I got to pick out a travel mug from reuseit.com.  They have a large selection of mugs, cups and all sort of other goodies.  After looking through everything, I picked out the JOEmo XL.  The JOEmo is a 16oz stainless steel travel thermos that has a removable tea filter. I am a huge tea drinker and absolutely hate coffee…unless I’m on a kayaking trip where I’ll drink it if it’s the consistency of sludge.  I know…that sounds gross.  Anyway, I figured that I would get the most … [Read more...]

UGLee Pen Review and Giveaway [ENDED]

A few weeks ago, I was sent a set of three UGLee pens. UGLee pens were created by a doctor to have the best, most comfortable grip available on a ergonomic pen.
