The Plastic Surgeon

The Plastic Surgeon

I had seen this item advertised a few times and didn’t purchase it. After having this for about a year I wish I had gotten it earlier.

The Plastic Surgeon is a safe and easy way to open even the thickest plastic clam shell packages.

It’s also great for opening:
CDs & DVDs
Plastic safety seals
Foil on bottles
Blister packs
Shipping envelopes

Having fibromyalgia I was a little concerned about my hand strength and being able to use The Plastic Surgeon safely and effectively. I am happy to report that I have used this to open many items over the past year without any issues.

The auto-close cover is great, I love not cutting my hands anymore when opening the kids toys.

Tarrazza Planter

Tarrazza Planter


This review is for anyone who loves to have plants living on a patio or deck but can’t seem to get the watering right.

Living in Southern California the wind and sun during the summer can leave my plants underwatered. With 2 small kids I have been known to forget to water my plants on occasion, only to look out onto my patio at some very sad vines or flowers.

Last year I decided to look around for some better options for my larger climbers. I stumbled across these great square and trough planters.


They have the look of a wooden planter but are made of UV stabilized polypropylene and won’t crack, peel or fade. They also have a large soil capacity and deep reserviors with aeration. I love how lightweight they are as I am able to move mine around with ease, after I added the optional casters. The casters are not visible once installed which ads to the visual appeal.

If you like climbing plants there are iron trellises that you can add to the planters that fit securely in the back corners of the planter. The trelisses come in three sections that slide together making it easy for a one person installation.

To see dimensions of the Tarrazza Square Planter, Tarrazza Trough Planter and Tarrezza Planter Trellises visit Gardeners Supply Store.

OXO Good Grips - Smooth Edge Can Opener

OXO Good Grips – Smooth Edge Can Opener

I have a few health conditions that have left me a little weak in the hands.

Using a normal metal can opener was becoming harder and I really didn’t want to keep hurting my hands all the time.

I decided to give the OXO Good Grips can opener a try as I have some of there other products and have had great success. Well they delivered again!

Not only is it easy to use but there are no sharp edges. It cuts differently to a traditional can opener in that it removes the top of the can. There is even a little gripper that you can use to pick the lid up.

With an MSRP of under $20 I think this is a very wise purchase for parents and those who need an easier way to open cans.

Shop The Company Store

The Company Store

When our son was a baby I wanted to get a solid color crib sheet. The ones at the baby store barely fit over the mattress and would fall apart after a few months in the wash. I didn’t want to pay $100’s for a set when I only wanted the sheet, so my online search began.

I discovered the Company Store. At first I was skeptical as their prices were a little higher but I took the chance anyway. The crib sheets were great, nice fabric, deep and they didn’t fall apart in the wash! Finally I found what I was after.

When he was a toddler he started waking up during the night. I thought it might have something to do with those cold plastic mattresses, so again I went searching for the ideal product. To my surprise I ended up back at the Company Store. I found a down alternative mattress topper for our crib mattress. It met my needs of keeping him warm along with allergy prevention, and it is machine washable.

Since then I have bought more crib sheets, a down alternative and washable crib size comforter, down alternative and washable child size pillows and more.

They have two online stores and magazines, one aimed and the Kids line and the other the adult line. They are a Wisconsin company so you are supporting an American company as well.

Great products, great quality, huge product line. Will be shopping there again.
