*As I am a fickle being, these are my “favorites” only as of today. Tomorrow, the whole list could change… or stay the same. Who knows! And since I’m pretty sure I’ve posted something similar (and am too lazy to read through all my other posts to find out), I’m posting these now.
In no particular order:
NetFlix—no late fees ever! Sometimes, I hang on to a movie for months at a time and then watch at my own convenience. Many people complain that you don’t get your money’s worth at $19.98 a month. Considering we were paying $40-50 a month in late charges at Blockbuster, I’d say it’s definitely a bargain.
Febreze—if you have kids, dogs, or smelly boys in your house, this is a GODSEND. I especially like the Spring & Renewal fragrance right now. I use the fabric refresher and the air effects. That’s enough for me.
Apple’s iPod and iTunes—I am one of those suckers who will buy an entire CD because of one song I really, really love. Then either I get stuck with 12+ other songs I don’t like… or on the rare occasions (Fastball), I’ll find an entire CD I like. With my iPod, it doesn’t matter anymore. I can have all my favorite tunes in one place… I don’t have to juggle all those damn jewel cases anymore. Plus, if I want to buy one song or an entire album, iTunes gives me lots of options. And my cute little Nano fits in my purse, my pocket…
Downy Wrinkle Releaser—if you don’t have this product, RUN to the store now and buy it. Besides making your clothes smell Downy fresh, it also really works. Now, obviously, you can’t spray it on every fabric. But if you have a mental block against ironing jeans… or you’re just too lazy… you can “Downy spray” the creases and wrinkles out of your jeans. Or t-shirts. Or sweaters. Or pants. I don’t travel without it. I haven’t touched an iron in at least two years. If I’m not using our steamer, I’m using the Downy spray. Guaranteed.
New Skin Liquid Bandage —This is really a love/hate relationship. On one hand, it’s great for when you wear shoes that rub the back of your heels… if you are proactive, you paint a nice coat of New Skin on the back of your heel prior to wearing evil shoes, et voila! No blisters. If you are REactive, New Skin will still work. It will just sting like hell when you apply it. It’s a good antiseptic, but you pay for it. Trust me. When a 30-something woman is begging for someone to blow on her “ow-ee” because the liquid bandage really stings, you know she’s not lying. Benefit: the stuff stays on. For days. And days.
So, as I said... today, these are my Top 5. Tomorrow my list might include "the salad bar," or "green tea to go"-- you just never know.
What are your Top 5?
