Keep Your Home Organized In Style with the Songmics 3-Tier Storage Cube Organizer #Review #Giveaway

logo-big-small

 

I have been on an organization kick for quite some time now, and no room in the house drove me as nuts as my daughter’s bedroom.  There’s TONS of toys, clothes, shoes, journals, notebooks, pens and pencils that didn’t really have anywhere to go because she had so much stuff in such a small space.  After falling in love with the Songmics shoe organizer, I decided to see what other storage and organization issues they could help me tackle.

The Songmics 3-Tier Storage Cube Organizer was absolutely the perfect fit for my daughter’s bedroom, and exactly what I had been looking for!  Even though I’m not a handy person, this was easy to assemble and I was ready to use it in almost no time at all.  Everything you need to put this storage cube together is included in the box, so there’s no need to dig out any extra tools or hardware, how cool is that?

Songmics2.jpg

This organization cube will help you keep your home neat, tidy and organized, and offer ultimate convenient for your household organization.  Talk about versatile!  This organizer can be used for storing all sorts of items, and there is SO much more room inside this organizer than you would think.  I managed to clean up all the random junk in my daughter’s room and STILL had extra space to put more.  The ABS connectors and PP panels allow you assemble the storage units into different style according to your needs which is perfect for a household that likes to change things up now and then like mine.  The rust-proof iron frame makes your storage unit extra durable and ready to take on the mess of any room in the house.  I wish the 10 lb load per cube was a little higher, but I stored the heaviest items in the bottom cubes and haven’t had any issues with bowing, cracking, tearing, or breaking which makes this quite possibly one of my favorite items I’ve ever received as a blogger.  

Don’t just take my word for it, one of you lucky readers will have a chance to win a Songmics storage cube of your own!

Ozeri Kitchen Items You’ll Absolutely Love #Review

ozeri_logo-001

If you know me, you know my home is filled with various Ozeri goodies.  Time and time again, Ozeri has great quality products that last which is why I just can’t get enough of them!

OzeriPopcornMaker.jpg

Growing up as a child, we always had fresh popped popcorn with our air popper and it was one of my favorite parts of family nights.  Whether we were watching movies or playing board games, we were enjoying fresh popcorn and having fun.  The Ozeri Movie Time Healthy Popcorn Maker totally took me back to my childhood days!  You can pop up to 26 cups of popcorn in under 3 minutes and very little (if any) unpopped kernels!  My kids absolutely love the clear chute so they can see the popcorn popping and were so excited to have freshly popped (not microwave bags) bowls of popcorn.  The included butter melting cup is a really nice touch!  You can melt your butter while you pop your popcorn and truly make your snack as healthy or as buttery as you’d like.  The cleanup is super easy meaning you’ll want to use this popcorn popper again and again.

OzeriKnives.jpg

I have been on the hunt for a sharp set of knives that would be durable enough to hold up to the amount of use in my kitchen.  We aren’t the type of family who eats out often, and we don’t use frozen dinners a whole lot.  I really enjoy the experience of getting in the kitchen and cooking for my family, which can feel more like a chore if you’re working with dull, unreliable knives.  The Ozeri 5 Piece Knife and Sharpener Set is exactly what I have been looking for!  The handcrafted blades are made from ultra-durable imported Japanese stainless steel as well as 420 grade stainless steel handles.  The included sharpener is a heaven send for someone like me who uses and dulls knives constantly but I will say I haven’t had to use the sharpener yet.  I’ve put these knives through quite the test and still no need to sharpen not even one of them.  I buy large cuts of skirt steak when I make carne asada and cut and trim the meat myself.  I was never able to get the meat thin enough until I got these knives.  My carne asada was paper thin after using the Ozeri knives and was immediately noticeable to my family.  Each knife is tarnish, stain, rust, and odor resistant so use them however you please without worrying about the small stuff.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or that special someone this Valentine’s Day,  you can’t go wrong with either of these impressive Ozeri items.

Keep Your Home Toasty This Holiday Season With the Ozeri Dual Zone Ceramic Heater #Review

ozeri_logo-001

If you know me, you know my home is filled with various Ozeri goodies.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Dual Zone Oscillating Heater With Remote from Ozeri so of course I jumped at the chance to try it out.

OzeriHeater.jpg

With the cold winter weather there’s no better time to try out a comfy space heater.  The Dual Zone Oscillating Ceramic Heater is made to provide heat quickly on a cold wintry night.  The programmable 12-hour timer is a really nice function so you can always be sure that you didn’t leave home leaving the heater turned on.  Our house isn’t the largest home, so the space saving design is really nice!  This heater replaced an old, bulky, energy sucking heating unit and I’ve never been happier.  One thing that I found really useful is the ability to independently control the top and bottom with various speed so you can get exactly the air flow that you want and where you need it most.

The intelligent thermostat is great for helping maintain the desired temperature.  The unit will automatically adjust the heat output according to the ambient temperature of the space and will automatically turn off once the desired temperature is reached.  Once the room falls a few degrees below the desired temperature the unit will kick back on and keep you comfy cozy all day/night long.  The Dual Zone Oscillating Ceramic Heater also doubles as a fan on warm spring/summer days.  I did test the fan briefly as I’m trying to heat my home not cool it, but the fan seemed to work pretty well and I can see it coming in really handy once the temperature outside starts to rise again.

I’m using this heater to keep a large (500-600 sq ft) space warm and it’s doing the trick quite nicely.  If you’re looking for a great heater to keep you warm I highly suggest the Ozeri Dual Zone Oscillating Ceramic Heater.

Solve All Of Your Security/Organization/Storage Problems With MMF Industries #Review #HolidayGiftGuide

mmf-logo-150.jpg

Storage can be an issue that all of us deal with, and if you’re like me, you fail at keeping the smaller things organized.  I came across MMF Industries and fell in love with their security, organization, and storage products.  Whether your needs are large or small, MMF Industries has some great solutions for every security/storage/organization issue.

KeyCabinet.jpg

I found one of the greatest things on planet Earth when I found this STEELMASTER Combination 28 Key Cabinet.  A family friend recently became ill and is unable to look after their numerous rental properties anymore.  My husband is in the process of transitioning into managing the properties and this is going to make life so much easier when he gets the keys to all of the properties.  The combination lock helps ensure that the keys will stay safe and will open only with your selected combination.  Hang keys with or without the tags, whichever works best for you.  The predrilled holes plus included mounting hardware make installation super easy and hassle free so anyone can install the key cabinet.

CashBox.jpg

The STEELMASTER Tiered Tray Cash Box is another great item I was super happy to be able to try out!  My son’s middle school often hosts dances and student functions where food items are sold to help raise money for the school.  Sometimes I will go in and help with selling the food at the school functions and until now keeping track of all of the money has been a headache and a half.  The five compartment coin tray will automatically open when the lid is opened, and the tiered tray design is great for full view of the entire cash box.

KeyRack.jpg

I couldn’t address they key storage issue for the rental properties without addressing my own personal key storage issues.  The 8 Key Multi-Colored Key Rack  is great for keeping all of your keys organized.  This key rack comes with eight color coded key rings with identification tags to label them all.  Keep the tags nice and snug in their slots or hang them on the hooks, you can use the rack both ways.

If you’re shopping for someone this holiday season who has security/organization/storage issues, check out all the MMF Industries has to offer!

The Samsung StormWash Will Be The Star Of Your Kitchen This Holiday Season #Samsung #Ad

Stormwash.jpg

Say hello to the stunningly beautiful Samsung StormWash Dishwasher!  This beauty is packed with features that will make you fall in love with it after just the first use.  Get your messiest meals cleaned up in a snap…no pre-washing required!  You can imagine after hand-washing dishes for the last 13 years just how excited I was to partner with Best Buy for this review.

DishwasherEmpty.jpg

The interior of this dishwasher is just as stunning as the exterior!  Once my installer got everything situated he ran the machine through an express wash to show me all of the cool features and I have to tell you, I was SO impressed by every little detail that went into this dishwasher.

LoadedDishwasher.jpg

StormWash Setting

The StormWash setting on this Samsung dishwasher will power through just about anything you can imagine and quickly became my absolute favorite feature.  After doing dishes by hand for so long, spaghetti was my most HATED dinner because of the clean-up.  No matter how quickly I tried to get the the dishes they were still a pain.  What better test for the StormWash cycle than my nemesis, spaghetti?  The day the dishwasher was installed I made spaghetti for dinner and wanted to REALLY test this bad boy out.  I scraped the food off the dishes but I didn’t rinse off a single dish.  After a whole day’s worth of dishes plus dinner, the dishwasher was packed to the gills, half of that being dirty spaghetti dishes.  To my surprise, every single thing came out sparkling clean and looking brand new.

DishwasherTopRack.jpg

FlexLoad Racks

The FlexLoad racking is one of the smartest features I’ve seen on a dishwasher.  Standard dishwasher racks leave a lot to be desired, and Samsung certainly understood there were much needed improvements to make.  You can easily fit various dishes of different shapes and sizes with plenty of room for whatever else your family can throw at it.  I love how the plate slots alternate directions on the bottom rack…this comes in super handy when you have a large load like pictured above.

DishwasherButtons.jpg

I was so excited to use the dishwasher that I forgot to take pictures of the spaghetti dishes!  I did however, make something I think is even more challenging and took pictures to show you how amazing the StormWash setting is.  I made ham and mashed potatoes for dinner and was tired so the dishes sat overnight.  When I make ham, I make a glaze from brown sugar and cola which is a thick, sticky mess.  After it sat all night it got crusty and would be a pain to wash by hand.  The mashed potato pan was pretty bad too and if that wasn’t enough of a test, my husband made an omelet and burned cheese onto the pan!  Everything got SO clean, and I didn’t even have to rinse them!

DishesBefore.jpg

DishesAfter.jpg

(Don’t mind my old scratched pot I used for mashed potatoes!  It’s my favorite and I just can’t let it go.)  The white bowl that I used for my glaze was probably the most impressive for me.  That thing was awful and it got back to brand new without me having to soak it and scrub it by hand.  I am so in love with this dishwasher!

6 Cycle Options

There are 6 different cycle options to truly customize the wash cycle you want…auto will automatically detect which cycle is optimal, heavy for heavily soiled dishes, normal for mildly soiled dishes, express 60 for a quick wash, delicate for delicate items, and rinse only when dishes will sit in there for a while.

Pocket Handle

I really like the pocket handle feature!  The pocket handle is easy to grasp so it will help keep fingerprints off the front of my beautiful new dishwasher.

Quiet Operation

A 48-dBA rating means a quiet performance every time, so you won’t interrupt your household while running loads.  I STILL can’t believe how whisper quiet this dishwasher is!  You can’t even tell that it’s running!

AutoDoor Release

As if the Samsung StormWash wasn’t cool enough…the AutoDoor Release took it to a whole new level.  Between 5-15 minutes before the end of the cycle, the door will automatically open to circulate air and accelerate drying time.  (You can disable this feature if you’d like, but I absolutely LOVE it!)

Energy Star Certified

Let this Energy Star certified appliance become the star of your kitchen this holiday season.  Cook, bake, or fry whatever you please and let the StormWash handle the dishes while you enjoy time with your family and friends.

I have to thank Best Buy and Samsung for making this appliance installation so pleasant and headache-free.  The dishwasher went right into it’s place, hooked up with no issues, and after just a quick half-hour visit from the installer I was ready to use my new dishwasher!  Find out more about the Samsung StormWash Dishwasher and how you can get one installed in your home.
