Coffee For Less

It almost seems like coffee is the new wine. There’s stuff you have to know now about flavors and choices and blends. The old questions about whether or not the office should provide free coffee seems like old news. I read the other day that so many people go “out” for coffee now that home coffeemakers are either special machinery for cappachino and the like or they aren’t there at all! I can’t imagine life without the ol’ coffeepot that justs starts brewing regular black coffee at 5:50 am every day. But I can imagine how much easier life in the office will be when the person who has to keep the coffee supplies stocked discovers Coffee For Less. Great online shopping for home or office coffee. And if you have an expresso machine in your Lexus, you can get great blends to try while you’re schlepping from place to place. We know you love your coffee, so click and save

Little Giant Ladders

You’ve seen the Little Giant Ladders on TV. Yes, this is the same versatile all-in-one ladder you’ve seen demonstrated. Need a stepladder? Need an extension ladder? Need a platform? If you’re a homeowner, then you know that just the basic maintenance chores around the house call for something different in the way of a ladder almost every time.

Quick, step up and change that light bulb. Honey, how are we going to get clear up by the chimney? I would love to clean the siding, dear, but it’s going to take a platform; I just can’t be running up and down a ladder every couple of minutes with a bucket and a scrub brush. Sound familiar? You’re ready for a Little Giant Ladder system.

Our personal triumph with the multipurpose ladder system was when our sailboat spent the winter on dry land. We needed an extension ladder as soon as it got set down in the cradle because now it was 12 feet up in the air! We had to have total trust in the means we used to climb up into the boat to get the cover on and everything lashed down for the winter. Come spring, we needed both an extension ladder and a platform so we could take care of painting, scrubbing, waxing and all the little things that crop up before boating season starts.

The best part about finding all the various ladders we needed in one ladder system? We could fold it up to a size that fit in the back of the small SUV we drive and still leave room for all the buckets, cushions, boxes, bags and totes that go along with driving 2 hours away to work on the boat.

You might be lucky enough to have all your projects on or under one roof, so to speak. But the Little Giant Ladder System is still the ideal way to take care of all types of projects without a second thought about how you’re going to get up there. Little Giant Ladder Systems and all the bells and whistles you might want to go with it.

There are many tips and tricks for getting the most out of every busy day, but there’s one you might have dreamed about and then dismissed – get your groceries delivered. Think about the time savings: no more backtracking through the monster store to get the best deal or feeling guilty at the quick stop when you pay $1 more for something than it’s worth. Now think about how many times you handle EACH item. Once to put in the cart, once to get it on the belt. Now put it in the cart again and carry it to the car. Pick it up and get it in the back, drive it home and pick it up again to carry inside. You’re almost there – you only have to pick it up a minimum of 2 more times to actually use it!

My guess is that when you think about grocery delivery, you think of it as a luxury your grandmother wouldn’t approve. Here’s something to think about. In the days before TV ads convinced people that the perfect home had a woman standing inside with a mop and cleaner, keeping her shiny new appliances running, many homes took grocery delivery for granted.

Whether you manage your own home and household or pay someone else to do it, the time could be used most efficiently by having basic staples and supplies delivered. At the point of delivery you are so close to being ready to prepare a healthy meal, you might actually have the time and energy left to do it. Now let me tell you a little bit about PeaPod, a service that does just that.

PeaPod is available in areas across the country. You can select your grocery items and have them delivered for about $6.95. Depending on where you shop, that might be less than you’re paying for gas, not counting lost time. Your next question probably concerns the quality of what you’re choosing and having brought directly to your door.

PeaPod says they are picker than you when it comes to choosing groceries for your home. First, you control the ordering process, and second, they have no reason to bring you unsatisfactory food. PeaPod would like to keep you as a regular customer and the way to do that is to be more reliable than even your family members when it comes to running to the store for you.

I say for $6.95, you can afford to take a look. It might be the best timesaving tip you ever listened
