Protecting What You Gots

Rhino Shield to protect your smartphone

As I write, my phone may or may not be turning itself off all by itself. This weekend it refused to alert me to anything incoming, even though it was clearly in the mode for alerting me for everything.  It’s a smartphone, yet over two years old, at the end of its natural life, which […]

clek THIS!

clek fllo Car Seat

Calling all grannies, grampies, mommas and daddies! My friend Amy over at Pregnant Chicken (well, she doesn’t really know we’re friends, but I’m hoping if she met me she’d wanna join the party) did an amazing review of a clek fllo carseat (yes, that’s all spelled correctly) and I wanted to share what I learned. […]

…Then It Dawned On Me

...Then It Dawned On Me

You guys know I love me a restaurant supply store for my kitchen supplies, right?  I also love finding offbeat uses for stuff I find there.  FUN! I also am a frequent shopper at Costco and Sam’s.  Shopping at these establishments has saved us untold green backs over the years, but has also presented interesting […]

Revisiting NoseFrida, aka the Snotsucker!

NoseFrida for the WIN!

In April 2013, I wrote about an amazing baby product that Boy and Girl were using on Sweet E, a product that I never knew existed and one, to be brutally honest, that made me literally gag a little.  The NoseFrida. Why in the world would I revisit a product that had the power to […]

It Takes an Army, A Swiss Army

It Takes an Army, A Swiss Army

How many times have you been out shopping at T.J. Maxx, reach for a 50%-off the already 50%-reduced item and gaaa! a painful hangnail or a jagged nail. The horror! There’s nothing left to do but go on home and drink; your whole day has been ruined. DON’T BE A WIMP!  There are still amazing […]

Blastmatch Fire Starter

Ohmeohmyoh!  Y’all know how much I love my outdoor fire pit (see HERE and HERE), well now I have found a handy fire starter that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg (although, the Bison Airlighter is still calling my name). ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your shopping […]

Duvet Schmuvet, No More!

Taking the Mystery out of a Duvet Cover

Confession Time: I’ve wanted a generously large goose down comforter for years, but have failed to fulfill that wonderfully fluffy dream because I’m scared of duvet covers.  Yep, scared.  They are totally bewildering to me.  I’ve looked at them with no understanding. Yes,  I see you’re a cover that protects my goose downy investment.  Yes, […]

Take a Hike

Matador Pocket Blanket

Are you a hiker?  A hitchhiker?!  DON’T DO THAT! I mean more like a person who hikes and then likes to sit and rest a bit as you enjoy the scenery. How about taking walks with the kiddos?  Do you like to do that? Impromptu picnic planner?  A park day with your pup?  Sitting by […]

Do Yardwork Like a Boss

Help to lighten Your Yardwork Load

OMT! loves yardwork.  No really, I’m not joshing.  I love to get my hands dirty and wack at things, plant things, build things and use chipping hammers to dig out things (like an old concrete foundation). (what follows is not a very attractive OMT!, but a happy one!) Hell, yeah! I own a giant wagon […]
