Lunch Blox

I bought this lunch blox  at KMart on sale for $7.99.  Not bad for a set huh?  What I like about it is that, it has  the blue ice pack that you can use when you want your food to stay cool.   I originally bought this for my husband but my son love  his  school lunch on these containers so he 's been using it since.
It stacks compactly because  of its unique design so you can put it i a lunch bag with any problem of leaks or  having the containers tilts.  This is a perfect sandwich kit as it holds wide range of  basic and specialty bread.  The side and  snack containers  are great addition as well because you get to organize them in different storage/containers.  I'd say that this is a great buy.  Would you pay $7.99 for this kit?

Tips to Reorganize Your Workspace

If you are a person that works with tools as a profession or as a serious hobby, your workspace is an important element in how fast and how well you can complete your work. With a cluttered workspace, you can easily lose the tool you need or not have enough space to create your next project. When this happens, it is time to reorganize your workspace. Not sure where to start? Here are some tips that will get your workspace together in no time.
Get Rid of What You Don't Need
The biggest reason that a workspace can get cluttered is because there is a lot of stuff laying around. In many cases, you may be able to get rid of some things that you no longer need. Things like scrap materials from your last project, broken tools and other things can be sorted and purged to clear out your space. This is also the time to take an inventory of tools so that you can get rid of what you no longer use.

Sort Your Tools
Sorting and organizing your tools is a great way to see what you have, what you don't want anymore and what you may still need to get for your specific type of work. This sorting process will also let you see what will need in terms of better tool storage. If you have the habit of losing your smaller tools, finding the right storage option can eliminate this occurrence.

Find the Right Storage Options
The last step to getting your workspace clear and reorganized is installing the right tool and material storage options. The storage options you choose will depend on the amount of tools you have, the size of the tools and how you would like to arrange them. You can use everything from large storage benches to stack-on tool boxes to make sure the tools you need will be right at your fingertips whenever you are working. 

Reorganizing your workspace doesn't have to take a lot of time or effort. With just a little work each day, you can have your workspace looking spectacular in no time so you can get back to doing what you love.

Cash Worthy Planter Set

I bought this on sale at KMart for $2.49, it was originally sold for $9.99.  I should have grabbed  two  but I thought to buy one first and then come back  next time.  When I came back, they're all gone..
I love these 4-piece trio planter set because I have a few  herbs that I am growing and the color of the planter match perfectly  with our kitchen.  
These are now in  inside, placed  in our kitchen window.  I am still enjoying some fresh herbs for my cooking.

Clothing for the Men at Home

Since hubby  have lost more than 30 pounds, we went for some clothes shopping a couple of months ago for his  summer clothes.  His former shorts and shirts are  too loose already so we had to find him  medium sizes shirts and 32 inches waist  shorts.  We bought all the items below on sale at TJ Maxx
His shorts.
His shirts.
We also bought some shirts and short for our son.
And I scored me a shirt for $4.99, yay!
For all of these items, I think we paid a little over a hundred bucks which isn't bad.

Guitar Display

My son's line when we go to any store is "Can I get one of these, Dad?"  He doesn't ask me  for anything because he knows that if it is something that he doesn't need, I would say no.  His Dad on the other hand would always say yes because he doesn't want to disappoint the kids.  I do however wish that I could get him  a guitar for Christmas because he really wants one.  Below is a guitar display at the music store we visited recently.

At-a-Glance for 2015

Time is flying by very fast.  October is almost halfway done and Christmas  season is fast approaching.  I can't believe how  time can go by so fast when you are having fun.  Planning is such a big part  of our family.  Hubby and I love to  lay out  and write down our plans for the next year because it is  easier to follow up those plans when it is written down.  I am very pleased that I have received two must-haves products for 2015  from Shoplet.  They sent me  a Monthly Planner and Wall Calendar from At-A-Glance.  
 I maybe a stay-at-home-mom but I have so many things  to write down when  it comes to schedules and   stuff.  That's why I am so  happy that I have the Monthly Planner because we could  jot down  tentative plans that we have for the coming year.  One of the many important events that we will have  next year will be our son's  communion.  
You can buy this  monthly planner for $25 at Shoplet website.  What I  like about this  planner is its stylish and sleek  design that would  totally  help you plan a well-organized, successful year. This is  great for  planning enthusiasts, list makers, and multi-taskers who believe that  less is more.  This line was designed to help you celebrate your accomplishments and allow you to stand out as a trendsetter who has it all together.
Taking  note of the important events in our lives is such a big thing. This sleek and professional planner would really help you  do that. There's one week per two-page spread with ruled writing space and graphed notes section. It is also tabbed monthly sections with clean, open writing blocks.
We always have one Wall Calendar and a desk calendar at home.  Hubby uses the wall calendar to  put  appointments and other work related events and I use the desk calendar for my online stuff and the kids  school activities.  Hubby  smiled big when I showed him his new  wall calendar for next year, he said "Alright!"

Conversion Of MKV To MP4 Effectively

Compression of video in the popular format of HD quality. The compression of video is what is done maximum. It is the mobile devices which do not support the format. The playback should be smooth but it does not support the personal computer as much as it should be. There are various solutions for the problem. The video can be converted to from MKV to MPEG-4 file. Transcoding of the video takes place. Video and movie clip can be watched easily. It becomes possible to watch the viewed in the same device.

To know how to convert MKV to MP4 file the converter of Movavi comes to your rescue as the quality of the video remains intact. It seems as if the device or the software is meant for conversion between the popular formats. There are almost 180 formats of media and to download the windows Movavi converter works best on it. The step is simple to follow while your file is altered into a different format.

  • First step is about installation of the program on your computer as the installation takes place by downloading it. In your hard drive the converter of Movavi works accordingly. The program is installed as the file is opened after downloading.
  •  Second step is about conversion which takes place for opening the file. The files which need to be encoded have to be added. You have to click on the icon of ‘add video’. Conversion of batch takes place. The entire collection of video is changed so if you are not interested in changing just one video you can change the entire collection.
  •  Third step is to select the format of the output which is possible by clicking on the field of convert to. The formats which are supported have to be chosen from the list. In the format you have to go the preset and choose the list from MP4. There are ready made preset as well as ratios and resolutions. It is upon your preference.

From the field of destination you have to choose the folder which is different according to your wish. It is the button of convert which has to be clicked on.
Other formats are converted likewise. The formats may differ but the process for all is somewhat similar. The basic recipe of the dishes is same in a likeable way. Simply follow the guidelines and find your way through the quick process. It is the support of the device which matters.

Teeth Whitening Kit

I f there's one thing that I wish I could have had when I was a kid is to have a good dental practice early on. In the place where I grew up, we never went to the dentist when we were kids. The very first time that I visited a dentist was when I was in high school and that's to extract some of my molars that were damaged.  It's a shame but that's one of the  many life struggles  that I have to deal with growing up.  If you were born and raised here in the US,  it might be hard for you to understand  how the way of life  is in other countries. 

A smile is the most precious thing you can give to the world.  I love to smile  but sometimes, I get conscious because of my teeth.  I tried some home whitening  technique but it  doesn't work  effectively so I am so glad that Smile Brilliant is giving me an opportunity to try their   Teeth Whitening Kit.  
The kit includes three desensitizing gel, 3 professional teeth whitening gel, 3 catalyst paste, three base paste, and  two trays.
The tray is to be used when you make the impressions of your teeth.
I was skeptical in making the impression because I was afraid that I might messed it up but luckily they send you and extra set of paste to use just in case you  made a mistake.  I read the instructions multiple times to make sure that I  understand how to make it.  As it turned out, I had fun actually.  I got to feel like a dentist when I was doing it because it reminds me of the  time when my dentist was  making the impression  for my upper teeth denture.  
The whitening teeth  will not work on partial/denture so I asked my husband if he would  like to use it instead since he doesn't have a partial.  He wanted to but when I told him that I have to take a picture of him, he backed out lol.  So even though I have  a partial (just few teeth), I am giving this a try.
The gel won't be used till I receive my trays for the whitening process to start.
I love that the instruction is very easy to follow.
I have my two-minute glass timer and  phone  in making the impression.  It is important that you use timer  because you can only  do it on specified time in the  guide or else  the putty will hardened up.
This is how the putty mix looked like after the catalyst and base pastes are mixed.
I sent the two impressions back to Smile  Brilliant lab using their  prepaid envelope last Saturday and they  informed me via email that  they got it last Monday.  So in few more weeks, they will be sending it back to me and I can begin the process of whitening my teeth.  I will update you of the result.

Buying Music Books Online

When our daughter   was having her piano lessons here in our area, the teacher buys the  piano books and we just give her the payment.  Now that   she goes to Doquesne University, we have to buy it ourselves.  So when the teacher gave us the list of books that she needs, we bought them online.  The seller sent us a wrong one for one of the books that we bought so we had to check out the nearby music store to  buy it.  Unfortunately, we didn't find it so we are waiting for them to get it as  we pre-ordered them when we went there.  I did however, checked this link here and found some   really nice music products.

Personalized Christmas Cards

Somebody was very excited when I showed her what I received from the mail.  These two packs of Astrobrights colored card stock and colored paper was sent to me for review by Shoplet. When my daughter arrived from school, she immediately opened it and suggested that we should make our Christmas Cards out of it.  That's actually a great idea.  I told her that we will try.
A pack of these Neenah Astrobrights  Colored Paper  costs $12.67 a ream and it has 500 pieces.   These colorful  papers are actually great to make notices, flyers, announcements and bulletins that grab people's attention.  These are  great to use in all laser and inkjet devices because of its  specialized engineering feature  which ensures trouble-free performance. These acid-free stock papers provide an  excellent fade resistance so these would really make ,great signs for your  garage sale or any kind of announcements. I love that this product was made from wood that came from a certified managed forest. 
The Colored Card Stock  are really great for making cards.  They are also ideal for color-coding, menus, posters and a lot more. There is 250 pieces in a ream and it cost $14.60.  Just like the colored papers, these are also acid free and made from a certified managed forest.  
Look how colorful these card stick are.  My daughter sampled them right away.
Here are the two cards she made  right away.  She said that we will make some more this weekend.  I think she forgot that her weekend is always busy because of her music program in Doquesne Universtiy.  But we will see.
Shoplet have everything that you need for your business and home including office suppliesoffice stationarypromotional productspromotional shirts and many others.   Thank you once again Shoplet and Neenah!
