If you’ve been a long-time reader here, you know that links from my site to Amazon, earn a commission for me. For example, if I put a link on the blog to Lori Holt’s Seams So Easy Guide…this one…that I completely adore, and you click the link and buy it, Amazon gives me a 45 cent commission on the sale. I’ve explained that before. If you’re on Amazon and end up buying a present for your granddaughter’s birthday while you’re there, they give me a commission on that as well.
Amazon then gives me a listing of the items people bought. I have not idea who bought what. No names are listed. No addresses are listed. I just get a list of what was bought.
Well, I often curiously look at the lists to see what other people end up buying besides the item I put a link to. Sometimes I am so intrigued by them I end up buying them. Today I’m going to show you two things that blog readers enticed me into buying…
A battery-operated can opener. As I age, I’m having a tougher time using items that require hand strength. I can’t get a lid open to save my soul. When I saw this can opener that was battery-operated and small, I decided to give it a try.
I clipped it on the can like this…
Pushed the button…and …the can opened just like that. I called Carver over when I opened another can. Just look how curious he was…
He moved from side to side. He couldn’t get close enough to check it out.
I was smiling just watching him.
He thought it was pretty cool.
I decided to try to film a video so you could see how slick it worked. Just push the play button.
If you want a break from opening cans, HERE is a link to the can opener on Amazon.
The next thing a blog reader inadvertently got me to but was this…a belt. It’s actually a bucket-free belt.
You can see in the picture below how it works. The belt clips onto one belt loop goes around and clips on the other belt loop. It’s totally adjustable.
I am in love. It’s not cute. It’s not glamorous. It’s not for people who tuck their shirts in. But it works perfectly for me.
I have chicken legs and no butt. I carry all of my weight in my belly. My pants always are sliding off of me. So I always need a belt. But, I hate the way belts add more to my already big waist. When I have childcare I have a minute (maybe) to use the restroom as the kids are alone while I’m gone. This was I don’t have to mess with the belt. It stays in place. I just worry about my button and fly. I don’t have to unbuckle the belt. It is slick. I love it.
You can find the belt on Amazon HERE.
That’s what I have for you today…a belt and a battery-operated can opener. People say you never know what I’m going to write about and today, it’s so true. If there’s another product that you love, please share it in the comment section. It’s only fair that you get to influence me too!!
P.S. Thanks a million to all of you who use the links from the site to purchase items from Amazon. I use the Amazon commission money to buy new toys for the kiddos here. They (and me) both appreciate it.
