Pre-Black Friday Review Lineup: 14 Must-Haves for Family and Home

Product Details

1.  Filtrete Water Station.

Review: 3M sent me the Filtrete Water Station water filtration system to check out and I have to say it’s not only green, it’s just plain cool!  I love that it reuses the same water bottles that can be washed in the dishwasher.  The water filter is good for 3 months, and you can even sign up at their site for automatic reminders to change your filters.

The Filtrete Water Station is a great family Christmas gift for a busy family with kids that are constantly on the go.

Buy the Filtrete Water Station at Amazon for about $37.44 with free super saver shipping.


3M Permission Graphics 002 2. 3M Metallic Coated Command Hooks.

Review: I was sent a metallic coated command hook from 3M to try out, and I love it.  You might remember that I vowed to only use command hooks in my new house instead of putting holes in the wall.  This led me to hang my Christmas stockings with command hooks and my Valentine’s Day mail boxes with command hooks.

I love these hooks because they are each weight rated for how many pounds they can hold.  Also, with different designs and finishes, you can match them to your home’s décor in any room.

Buy the 3M Command hooks at Amazon.


3. Cuddle Care Stroller Blanket.

Review: This fantastic convertible stroller blanket is a great idea for babies in cold climates this winter.  It converts from a blanket to a sleeping bag to an in-stroller or in-car seat blanket cover.  the extra pocket at the bottom doubles up to keep legs and feet warm, and the blanket zips up so it won’t fall out as baby moves.

Cuddle care stroller blanket is available at Babies R Us. Keep Reading

Overheard From the Dining Room Table

Tonight the kids were eating at the table with daddy while I got caught up on some work.  Suddenly, I heard the wailing whining voice of my 4 year old son, Truett.

“Oh NO, Dad!  We didn’t get ANY VEGGIES!” 

Truett’s my stickler for balanced food groups. *sigh* My legacy goes on without me! 


But seriously, they have a great time with Dad when I’m working, and since he’s been home since being laid off from his job in September, they’ve gotten so used to him being home that I don’t know what they’d do without him!
