Phantom Glass Screen Protector

We have used Phantom glass on our previous devices and love the quality of the product. With larger screen smartphones, such as the new iPhones it is becoming necessary to protect the screens of our valuable investment. This is where Phantom glass screen protectors help us. They are a valuable addition to our smartphones, as it helps protect the screens from scratches and fingerprints.

The 3-Step Werner Project Step Stool is Handy for DIY projects

The 3-Step Type II Project Ladder Step Stool available to purchase at Lowe's is ideal for any task in our home, kitchen or garage. We find the utility tray on this ladder to be useful for our painting and DIY projects as it can hold paint cans and tools that we need.

Spicy Pumpkin Soup and KenmorePro Blender Giveaway

pumpkin soup
I like using the high powered KenmorePro Heavy Duty Professional Blender to make both cold and hot recipes, as it is versatile. This blender is special because we can prepare warm soups within a few minutes by simply adding the ingredients, puréeing it and blending it on maximum speed for 5 minutes until it starts to steam. We can also use it to make smoothies, soups, sauces, and for other meal prep.

Compact Chamberlain Universal Mini Garage Door Remote

Chamberlain Universal Mini Garage Door Remote
Recently, we shared how we brought our garage door to life using the Chamberlain MyQ Garage Door Controller that we find very handy. When we use the app to close the garage door it makes a loud beeping sound to warn that it is closing, and we feel that this sound can attract attention. However, when using the new Chamberlain Universal Mini Garage Door Remote to close the garage door it does not make the warning sound since we are physically close by.
