Mane N Tail Hoofmaker : A hand cream that strengthens your (unpolished) nails. Origionally used to keep horse hooves from cracking, the people applying it to horse hooves noticed their own fingernails became stronger. Now packaged for people. Helps cracked fingers and heels too. I use it all winter, as that's when my nails tend to flake and split.
Pizza wheel cutter:
I use it especially in cutting bar cookies, brownies, and sheet cake. No lumpy crumbs coming to the top to make the frosting look ucky, nice clean lines.
I hate digging in my purse for keys, and so I use a key clip, like on a dog leash. I use plastic, because metal just adds to the weight.
I use all Bare Minerals products, but even if I didn't I would use Prime Time. Applied before your makeup, it keeps your skin from getting oily and your makeup from running during the day. In humid Kansas in the summer, I need it. I still have oily skin, and it really works.
Things on my refrigerator:
My dogs are all mircrochipped, and I recommend it! This is the magnetic tag I keep on the refrigerator, just in case.
A magnetic map of my state. When the TV starts saying what counties a tornado has been spotted in, I want to know quickly how close it is. I got this at the hardware store. I am sure it would be useful for all kinds of weather alerts.
I keep these lozenges at school with me for when I feel a cold coming on. I do believe it shortens and calms a cold. I start sucking on these ( about 4 per day) at the first signs of a cold. I think they work as well or better than Airborne, and much less money.
I am a dish a holic, and I use coffee filters to keep each plate from scratching the other in a big stack. Cheap and easy.
And lastly, my little luxury. I don't drink but 2 cups of coffee per day, but I only want this. I am not a Starbuck's person, and am content with this vanilla caramel flavored creamer. My family teases me that I have a little coffee with my creamer. Your point?
