Mighty Handle Makes Grocery Shopping Easier! Enter to Win Today!

Mighty Handle, stocking stuffer, gifts for mom

I am all about the one trip. What’s that? It’s when you go to the grocery store, buy a bunch of stuff, and come home refusing to take more than one trip to get it all in the house. I secretly cheer myself on… One Trip One Trip One Trip! Do I look like a pack mule sometimes? Sure. Have a hurt myself carrying all those bags? Yes. Back, hands, arms, you name it. Is it worth it to me if I do not have to trudge down the stairs and back outside to get more bags? Absolutely! That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want it to be easier. Work smarter not harder right?

One trip with the groceries with Mighty Handle!

This is exactly how I feel. More than one trip is for pansies.

Mighty Handle is a way to help moms, anyone really, make that one trip! It’s their slogan after all “More Bags. One Trip. No Spills” sounds perfect to me! This cool little anchor makes my life easier. Although it is made for plastic bags I also use this with my reusable ones. With a quick twist, the Mighty Handle closes the bags up to prevent spills. It is small enough to throw into your diaper bag or purse or just to throw in your car. I keep mine in my resueable bags that live in my truck. Mighty Handle helps you make one trip without straining all the muscles in your body and keeps the bags from cutting into your skin! Bonus: it is 100% recyclable, dishwasher safe, and made in the USA.  

Why do I love it? I can make my one trip without killing myself. My hands do not cramp up when I’m carrying a lot of bags anymore. And my arms and hands are now spared getting strap burn and being cut into by the bags. Anything that makes grocery shopping easier I LOVE!

A word from the brains behind Mighty Handle: Ben

{…} there had to be a better way to carry everything! I have spent the last four years working on a prototype that is tough and durable yet easy and comfortable to carry anything. I have quit my ‘day job’ and my goal is to rescue sore arms, wrists and fingers everywhere!

Shopping shouldn’t be so hard. Mighty Handle is meant to help you carry More Bags. One Trip. No Spills.

Thank you Ben for saving sore arms and backs everywhere!

Here’s a video showing you the awesomeness of Mighty Handle

Walmart and Axe Hair The Greatest Place to Work Giftcard Giveaway!

Walmart Gift Card Giveaway

 

First impressions stick with you for better or worse. I don’t care who you are, everyone wants to make the best impression possible! My ideal first impression is me, dressed to impress in new clothes and shoes, hair styled to look amazing, walking in to the room poised and confident. Optional spotlight and choir singing. Unfortunately, things don’t always go so perfectly and everything goes awry.

Have you ever met someone and it just went terribly? Once upon a time, I went to a job interview while I was sick. Like nose running, raw scratchy throat, overall feeling of blegh sick. There was no way to reschedule so I sucked it up, added extra foundation to my red nose, and tried to make myself look as professional as possible. The interview started off great and then it happened. Halfway through I felt nauseous and had to run out. It could have been worse I could have thrown up on myself, or the interviewer. I still seriously contemplated crawling out of the bathroom window I was so embarrassed. But I went back in and the lady was so nice. I did get the job because she loved my perseverance. Though I wouldn’t recommend that for anyone! Please do not try this at home folks!

You want to make a great first impression? You want to look the part, feel the part, and have the toys of the part!

American Girl

American Girl is one of those brands that is timeless. I remember playing with my Bitty Baby as a little girl, taking her everywhere. Now I get to relive those days and experience American Girl in a new light with my daughter. We both get excited to sit down and look at the catalogs when they come in the mail! So it is no surprise to me or anyone in our lives that American Girl anything showed up on her Christmas list.

The top if that list? The Doll of the Year, Saige. After we went to the premiere event for Saige Paints the Sky she was hooked and the negotiations began. But mommy my other doll needs a friend. I like to draw and ride horses too. Oh and mommy, she has red hair like me sooo that means she looks like me. It starts young folks! Saige comes with her introduction book, ring, and earrings. There are a lot of Saige outfits, accessories, and playsets too. You can also buy Saige’s movie, Saige Paints the Sky and get free shipping until Dec 31st!

American Girl Gift Guide, American Girl Saige

Saige is only here until December 31st! Don’t miss your chance to bring her home!

New to the world of American Girl? Not sure where to start? I recommend the My American Girl Dolls. My daughter’s first American Girl doll was her My American Girl Doll. She squealed with excitement and she almost knocked me over with her hugs! Her face just lit up when she saw her doll. Her hair is like mine! And her eyes! And her smile! Oh Mommy she looks just like me! I’m naming her Little k! Little k is my daughter’s constant companion and best friend.
