Fun Finds from the 2011 Housewares Show: Property Sluts Episode 17

I'm reading: Fun Finds from the 2011 Housewares Show: Property Sluts Episode 17Tweet this!

I really thought we'd have a house by now. I mean, maybe we do. But, we're still waiting to hear from the contractor who was out there last week and if the numbers seem do-able then we've got to get an inspection and if that works out, we need to see if the house appraises for the value we said we'd pay. Oh, and the attorney review period might be up before we even get very far down the above mentioned list. The review period was already extended once for our trip to Disney and again because our attorney went on vacation last week.

So I'm putting all of that mess aside to share some of the cool things I found at this year's International Home and Housewares Show. There will be more to come as I'm expecting a review item and a giveaway or two in the coming weeks. Sadly, no, not the "ultimate boy toilet seat" you'll see in the video.

I'm also going to be giving away a pass to the Type-A Parent Conference through MomImpact, so if you're not a member yet, become one!

On to the housewares:

Easy links to a few of the brands mentioned in the video:
Bottles Up, Grid It by Cocoon, Tip N Spray, Pomegranate de-seeder, Scrunchie Wrap, Dsolv compostable lawn bags, and the product that I was seriously geeked out about, the Thricer bagel slicer.

Do you think the Once-ler would use a Thricer?

Thanks for sharing your finds, Kim. The water bottle looks cool. I watched the video on the pom de-seeder site, and I'm gonna give it a thumbs down. I don't much care for single-use items, unless they're absolutely amazing, and this one just isn't. Doesn't look like it saves much time compared to the knife-and-bowl method I use (which reminds me, next winter I MUST make a video on how I do that).

Thanks for sharing, Kim. I like that water bottle! Not so excited about the pom de-seeder, though. I took a look at their video and it's honestly nothing special. I can get the same results with a knife...next winter I need to do a how-to video demonstrating that technique!
