    Promising review: "This multi purpose bench fit perfectly into my daughters apartment. It was put into a spot that looked like it was custom made for.

I love the book and have purchased four more to give to friends." β€”granolaaaaaa

You can put your coffee mug under the pod side and you can remove the bottom tray on this side to accommodate your taller travel mugs. The drip coffee side has a warming plate to keep your coffee a nice temperature. Simply fill up the large water reservoir, add your coffee and select cups or pods then the size.

Each time its a hassle for me to soak up the urine and then put in the pet stain cleaner and then soak it up all over again. This awesome machine takes it to the next level. I tried it on a 5- year-old ink stain to see what this could do. After one application, the ink stain was some what faded. I waited, reapplied, and tried again β€” voila, the stain was gone! Bottom line β€” I would use this for any stain on rugs/ furniture etc. I've already ordered the refill for the vaccum. I am always going to keep it handy!" β€”LexBuyer

    Promising review: "I am dealing with a lot of swelling in my legs lately. When I go to bed I find myself moving my legs constantly due to discomfort in them. I used this blanket across my legs at night, and boy was I surprised. The weight of the blanket was like I was wearing my compression socks. It helped my legs with the discomfort feeling I deal with at night. I really thought this blanket was not going to help me, but it did. The whole concept seems so bizarre, but it actually works. I sleep so much better at night with this blanket across me!" β€”Roshonne

    Price: $39.97 (originally $49.97, available in four weights)

    19. A box of space-saver storage bags because your bulkier sweaters or blankets don't have to take up that much room. The double zipper and one-way valve keep out unwanted air, giving you three times the space. I would not have been able to pack my study abroad suitcase without them.

    Three space saver storage bags with blue zippers

    Promising review: "These extra-large Magic Bags are awesome! They are very easy to use by just putting your items in the bag, sealing it, and then putting the vacuum on the nozzle to remove the air inside the bag. This package comes with six bags and each bag is huge! In one bag I was able to fit a comforter, a sheet set, and a throw blanket. They compact down to be flat, so they are very easy to store anywhere. Removing the items from the bags is just as easy. Just unseal the bag and your items fluff bag up to normal.

    The blue and white steamer

    Promising review: "This is the steamer that you want! It holds enough water for at least four tops/sweaters before needing refilled. It has a lock button that will keep the steam flowing. If you prefer to have control over when the steam comes out, don't press the lock button. The amount of steam that comes out and the design of the head makes getting wrinkles out more quickly and with less effort than any other model I have used. I am so happy with this steamer, I will probably never get out my fancy floor model again! Highly recommend!" β€”cmward

    Price: $29.44 (originally $35.00, available in two colors)

Nice to take food in to a relative or friend and cheap enough to replace, not caring if I get the dish back." β€”Patti
