My parents wouldn't let me send for it because nothing is as good as it seems. That didn't matter to me. One of the first things I purchased as a married woman was a Pocket Fisherman for my husband! HE used it once or twice then just gave it to me to use. I loved it! I bought one of the original models at a yard sale last month for fifty cents. I tried to give the man the two quarters and he just said take it. SO, I did. It works, and I like it.
|. I like the pocket hose. I went to my neighborhood |
WalMart this weekend and they have replaced all their garden
department hoses with just a couple of these expandable hoses.www.asseenontv.com/
Some stores have devoted shelf space just for gadgets as seen on TV. Walgreens and Dollar General, for example. And, you know I am NOT saying you should have one of every gadget. I am relating, if there is a tool for every job and it works, you may find it and your mom might call it a useless gadget. My mom used to give me grief for having these round rubber discs in my silverware drawer. They are jar openers. They are also handy and she uses them now, too. They are a strength magnifier. You can make one from non-skid kitchen shelf liner. They are also available in plastic and pretty colors, vintage metal, gripper, twister and pop off models.
Moral to today's post? Gadgets be GOOD! get some to make your life efficient now, get some to make it survivable, later!
