Organizing Solutions: Magnetic Knife Holder

I received the below mentioned product in order to complete an honest review.  Any opinions expressed are my own.  Prize is sponsored by Jabowd. This post does contain affiliate links. Regardless I only post legitimate offers from trusted sites.

I’ve mentioned in posts in the past that I don’t have a lot of storage in my kitchen, especially for a family of 6.  I have minimal counter space and only some cupboards.  I’m always looking for ways to create more storage and hopefully do it in a cosmetically pleasing way. I’ve found some clever ideas and became aware of storage options I didn’t even know existed over the years.  One such idea is the Jabowd Stainless Steel Magnetic Knife Holder.

See I did have my knives in a drawer but when each kid became a toddler they were quite interested in pulling the utensils and things out of the drawer.  My daughter is 2 1/2 and she still just can’t resist pulling things out of the drawers and cupboards.  I got child safety latches on the cupboards but never found anything that really worked on the drawers. So my solution was to put all my knives, peelers, and any other sharp objects in a storage container and sit it on my counter.  It didn’t look the greatest but at least it kept the knives out of little hands.  Still, with not having much counter real estate, every inch counts.

The Jabowd Magnetic Knife Holder is a stainless steel strip with strong magnets along the strip.  Just screw the strip onto the wall with the provided screws and drywall anchors and you have a better solution for storing knives away from little hands.  It also gives you convenient access when cooking. I had my strip installed in about 3 minutes and was able to start using it right away.  My one concern was that the bigger knives would be too heavy and wouldn’t stick but this little strip is mighty.

You can see I have everything from paring knives to my bread and butcher knives.  This thing is great.  I can have it high enough on the wall that even my clever daughter can’t climb up on something and get it too.

Back to School Label Pack from Lovable Labels

I will be receiving a Back to School label pack for promotion.  Any opinions expressed are my own.

My kids start back to school this week.  I’ll be honest I’m not a fan.  I love having my kids home with me but they honestly like school.  It’s always an adjustment for me when they go back. That means homework for them again and homework for me. I get piles of papers sent home.  Filling out info in triplicate for each of my kids.  This form, that form.  Then the notices.  Snack days, bring these supplies, here’s the schedule, oh and label all your kids stuff right down to their buttons.  Ok, so I exaggerated just a little on the buttons part but, they honestly want everything labeled: backpacks, shoes, coats, folders, everything.  I totally understand why.  I mean I spent money on all that stuff, I don’t want it lost either.

Over the years I’ve found the easiest way to label my kids stuff is with durable peel and stick labels like Lovable Labels. Lovable Labels makes it easy with Back to School label packs that include: slim labels, regular labels, shoes labels, clothing dots, mini-metal tags, and square labels.  I get the back to school label pack almost every years and trust me you get plenty of stickers.  Label lunches, gym bags, gym clothes, backpacks, tupperware, science projects, folders, pencil cases, crayon boxes, socks, nap mats, whatever you need to label and then some.

These labels are probably the best labels I’ve ever used.  They hold up in the wash (the clothing dots) they stay well in the shoes (the shoe labels) and really stick to everything.  Even when you put them on tupperware then wash and rewash it stays.

You can get a Lovable Labels Back to School Pack for $44.95 plus FREE shipping until September 30, 2015.  These label packs are great for daycare and preschool too!

This is My NEW Favorite Shampoo and Conditioner

I received the below mentioned products at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

I’ve been trying to find more natural products that really work.  I was approached by a company called Maple Holistics They’re mission, “to provide a natural, holistic range of premium products which can enhance hygiene, health and daily living.”  As I browsed their website I saw so many natural products I’d love to try.

I’ve been on my own mission to find a more natural shampoo and conditioner that actually works.  I’ve used Argan oil in my hair before and I know a number of shampoos use argan oil as an ingredient (except they aren’t natural like Maple Holistics are).

Maple Holistics argan shampoo contains not only argan oil but jojoba, peach kernel, almond, camellia seed, and avocado.  All these natural ingredients make for one amazing scent too.  The argan condition contains argan and botanical keratin.

I’ve been using the shampoo and argan conditioner for about two weeks now and I can honestly say this is my favorite shampoo and conditioner I’ve tried thus far.  It did a great job of cleaning my hair.  My hair feels so soft. It has the most amazing scent from the blend of ingredients used too.

Maple Holistics also let me try their Ancient Clay facial mask.  I love using a good mask about once a week just to help get rid of black head and give my skin a good deep clean.  Maple Holistics Ancient Clay facial mask using french green clay, betonite clay, and Fuller’s Eart (multani mitti) clay.  This one I didn’t know too much about but when you order the products they send you helpful info cards about the ingredients in your products.  Fuller’s Earth clay is describved as “valuable clay most commonly known for it’s ability to reduce acne scars, blemishes, and blackheads.”

This mask comes with a scoop.  The mask it self is in a dry powdered clay form.  You use the scoop to measure the clay and water and mix it before applying.

I applied the mask. After washing it off my blackheads were almost all gone.  My skin felt soft and looked so refreshed.  Using a facial  mask is one way I pamper myself.  Using one that is all natural makes me feel like I’m getting the most benefit out of my beauty treatments as well.

I’m so happy with these natural products from Maple Holistics. I can’t wait to try more. Besides their website you can also find Maple Holistics on these social media sites:
