We have been packing our work and school lunches using the LunchBlox for more than a year. We really enjoy using this lunch-portioned containers that snap to a Blue Ice™ chill pack that keep foods cool and fresh all day without refrigeration. During winter we don't use the Blue Ice™ chill pack, but when the weather gets warmer it is very useful.

All Access Organizers Help Us See What We Store

rubbermaid organizers
When we have belongings that we don't use all the time, I find it easy to store them in containers and stack them up so it saves space. However, when we put these belongings in boxes that are not transparent it becomes difficult to access the content, or to remember and identify what is inside even if there are labels :) 

There is a solution for this problem since the Rubbermaid All Access Organizers have a clear, drop down door on the front of the boxes that make it easy for us to see and take the items out without un-stacking the heavy containers. These space saving stackable containers would be ideal to organize our garages, closets, children's toys, craft rooms, offices, and more.

This Closet Helper Will Keep Us Organized

We usually have a hard time keeping our bedroom closet organized, since the clothes go in and out of it all the time. Like us, many people I know get frustrated with disorganized closets and have tried many ways to keep it neat, tidy and accessible. 
Our frustration was solved after we installed the Rubbermaid Max Add-On Closet Helper, as it helps us keep our closet organized and neater. I liked how easy it was to install the Rubbermaid Max Add-On Closet Helper without any tools. I found the smooth and sturdy tower plastic shelves and cubby inserts in this package to be handy and useful as it helps me neatly keep the clothes folded.

Getting the house ready for the #holidays and a Giveaway

handheld 2-in-1 scrubber

I have been cleaning our home a bit more than usual because we are getting ready for winter and had a few celebrations.  Now with the December holidays approaching, we are anticipating more family and friends to come over and spend time.  My grandpa used to say that a clean kitchen and washroom judges a home :) So keeping a sparkling washroom and kitchen is a priority in our home. Soap scums, dirt caused by humidity are all reasons that make it hard to maintain the washroom, especially if we don't have the correct tools.  I am very happy that this year we got to try these fabulous scrubs and brushes from Rubbermaid.  
I found the extendable scrubber helps us with hard to reach corners more easily.  We have the option of detaching the head or scrubbing part easily to use without the handle.  The pole extends from 24" to 40" and works with switchable pads.      
I like the idea of putting the cleaning liquid into the spraying scrubber.  It allows us to easily spray and clean one spot before moving to another, which is very useful with little ones in the home, as I usually don't get to start and finish cleaning in one time.  The spray scrubber holds about 1/2 cup of liquid at one time.  We have the option of switching the pads for this scrubber depending on the surface we want to clean, which is very convenient.

We found the flexible scrub brush useful as we cleaned the washroom floors and areas where some surfaces are flat and some have curved contour surfaces i.e. bathtub and sink.  The rubberized inset helps to grip it firmly.  When the red button on the top part of the scrubber is pushed, it releases the 3" red part of the bristle to move into any position we like and then locks it into place.  This bendable firm part of the bristle helps us scrub curved areas in the bathroom.
The handheld 2-in-1 scrubber is extra large and is useful for full surface scrubbing for large areas.  I like the detail brush that is on top, which is similar to a giant toothbrush.  This detail brush is handy to scrub around the faucets, grout and small spaces.

We can switch the pads to either disposable, scouring, bristle or sponge.  The pads are available to buy separately.  Scouring pads are good for all surfaces.  Sponge pad is good to clean and wipe.  The bristle brush is handy for heavy duty scrubbing.  The disposable pad come in packs of six to "clean and toss" for messy jobs.  
A lot of thought has gone into designing and making this selection of Rubbermaid products for the bathroom, which makes our job easy.  All these products can be found at Home Depot, and some of these can be found at Walmart and Home Hardware stores.

With this new brush tip Sharpie markers we can create fine or bold lines and use it for shading.    
Children and Adults will enjoy using these permanent markers in a variety of surfaces such as posters, notebooks, helmets, skateboards, bicycles and signs etc. to express their artistic flare.

My children and I enjoyed designing these tea light candles.  It was easy to use, so we had lots of fun creating these unique designs within a few minutes.

We painted this ceramic pot easily without leaving a mess to clean :) so I am looking forward to do more projects with these markers.

To paint this pot, we need
Sharpie brush tip markers*
clay or ceramic pot
and your imagination :)


Use the markers to paint on the pot, the tip changes to the pressure we put in our hands.  Although it dries really fast, try not to touch the painted surface right away as you paint to avoid smudges.
*The markers are available at Staples, Walmart, Real Canadian superstore, DeSerres in packages of 4 and 8.

FilterFresh Rubbermaid water bottle giveaway


FilterFresh Rubbermaid water bottles on the go transform our tap water into a delicious refreshing drink.  The filter removes chlorine, but it doesn't filter microbes or fluorides so use only drinkable water to fill the bottles.


The bottles are dishwasher safe, place the bottle and lid on the top rack or wash by hand.  The freezer safe BPA free bottles have a twist cap that prevents leaks and allows to quickly place ice cubes.  It fits into cup holders, easy when we are on the go.  The finger loop is convenient to hold onto the 600ml bottle.   


It provides 300 bottles of water anytime, anywhere, which is useful when we don't trust the water in different areas.  Usually, because of the summer heat we end up finishing the water we take and refill from the taps for convenience so having this Rubbermaid filter bottles would allow us to have healthy clean water.  The dial on the replaceable filter helps us track when it is time to replace the filter, which is about every three months.  The filter works immediately without wait time.
Before using the bottle for the first time unscrew the filter, remove the wrap, reattach, fill the tap water, flush the filter first with hot water then refill and enjoy.


These bottles comes in blue, purple, black and green.  It is available at most Real Canadian superstores and Loblaws for a price of $9.99.  The 2 pack replacement filters are $9.99.
Become eco-friendly and stop using water bottles that end up in our landfills.

The joy of writing with Papermate


Writing is a gift, so I take every opportunity I can to write the old fashion way using a pen.

Papermate is a trusted brand of pens. Their new launch of InkJoy pens make writing fun because the pens are smooth, doesn't smear and makes writing effortless. It requires minimal pressure, and the writing is crisp and clean. It is available in all stores selling office products.


The 300 RT and 700 RT retractable pens have a tip seal to keep it fresh, so if you buy a package you don't have to use them all :)
The 700 RT black, red and blue pens look the same but the top of the pen have the colour indication so we know the different colours before we start to write.
The package of 300 RT has 3 blues, 3 blacks and 2 red. I like the comfort of having the contour grip on these pens.

The 100 series pens have 10 fun colours in each package. They don't have the contour grip, but the pens work the same way and is vibrant. Here is a picture my daughter drew about her experience at the IceFest using the 100 series. More pictures and the fun details of the IceFest coming soon :)


One lucky winner in Canada can win $50 worth of products from Papermate by leaving a comment on this post before March 20th.
