Now Foods Butterbur Capsules White Stevia Powder 100 Packets Adagio Teas Ingenuitea Teapot Gillette GoodNews! Regular Disposable Razor 12 Count (Pack of 3) Wobble Wedges Leveling Shims Fellowes Powershred W-11C 11 Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder Rubbermaid Comm Prod Brownstone Medium Brown Bath Mat

Now Foods Butterbur Capsules A natural herbal remedy for Spring pollen allergies (and, some say, also for migraine heacaches) in capsule form. I suffered from severe Spring allergies for decades, every year from March to June. Antihistamines would knock me out, even in tiny doses. The newer “non-drowsy” medications, aside from their high cost, affected my mental processes and my mood to the extent that I was useless at work and no fun to be around. Looking in Google a few years ago to see if there might be something natural without side effects, I came across butterbur. A silly-sounding name... But for me, it works, and with no side effects at all. In a normal Spring, with one capsule 3 or 4 times a day the symptoms range from barely noticeable to tolerable. In bad Spring, I have to double the dose.
White Stevia Powder 100 Packets Recent studies have emphasized the health risks of sugar intake – hypertension, diabetes, heart attack – particularly in sugar-sweetened beverages. For most regular coffee or tea drinkers, it's hard to do without sugar, but artificial sweeteners generally taste bad and might have side effects. Stevia is a new alternative; it's a natural sweetener made from plants in the sunflower family, used for centuries by the Guaraní people of Paraguay and for decades in Japan and other countries. The NuStevia brand has been specially processed to have less of an aftertaste and to dissolve easily in hot or cold beverages. I've been using it for a few months; it's not exactly like sugar but it tastes much better than artificial sweeteners, it's all natural, and it might also offer other health benefits.
Adagio Teas Ingenuitea Teapot Speaking of tea... the Adagio Teas Ingenuitea Teapot is a clever and convenient way to brew loose tea, such as (for example), Twinings Prince of Wales Tea. I found this item when I was looking to replace my ancient 16-ounce teapot from Yugoslavia, because over the years the enamel had chipped and the metal was rusting. Nowadays it's almost impossible to find an ordinary teapot (let alone Yugoslavia!), but among the new-fangled gizmos this one stands out. You just put the loose tea in it, pour in the boiling water, flip the lid down, let it sit 5 minutes, and then put it on top of your tea mug... the tea comes out the bottom, perfectly filtered. To clean, just dump out the tea leaves and rinse. Comes in 16- and 32-ounce sizes.
Fellowes Powershred W-11C 11 Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder In the 21st Century everybody needs a shredder in their home, for all the mail that has your personal information in it, but that you don't want to keep. Otherwise, you can be sure that somebody will be digging through your trash one day, and before you know it, they will be applying for credit cards in your name and buying all sorts of things, leaving you to pay for them. Or worse! This model by Fellowes (the premiere shredder company) is designed for home use, and I've been using it daily with never a problem since October 2011. You also need to order a supply of bags, and maybe also some lubricating oil (so far I haven't needed the oil).
Rubbermaid Comm Prod Brownstone Medium Brown Bath Mat When was the last time you had a bathmat that didn't fill your house with toxic fumes when it was new? And that didn't slip and slide when you used it? And that didn't turn black with mold within a few weeks, that could not be removed no matter how hard you scrubbed? Even if you hung it up after each use? After going through a series of bathmats like that, I bought this Rubbermaid model from Amazon in April 2011. It didn't stink when I opened it, it stayed put when I used it, and a year later there is still no mold on it. The suction cups haven't been ripped out either. Just what you'd expect in a bath mat.
Gillette GoodNews! Regular Disposable Razor 12 Count (Pack of 3) No-nonsense razors. Razors without an annoying “slime strip” or bobble head, and with just two blades, not 3 or 4 or 6 or 17, like they want you buy (but they often do throw in one of those as a promotion). Three packs of 12; 36 razors in all, plus whatever promotional ones are included. Each razor is normally good for a week of daily use, so at $20.37 (cost of the three-pack as of the date below), that's less than 8 cents per day for 252 days.
Wobble Wedges Leveling Shims Leaning or wobbly furniture... Do you have a bookcase that's leaning dangerously forward, looking like it's ready to topple? Or a dresser or filing cabinet where the drawers want to slide open by themselves? These little wedges are perfect to make your leaning furniture pieces stand up straight. They don't slip and they don't compress. Push the bookcase back with one hand and bang the wedge in under it with a hammer. If one wedge isn't thick enough, you can stack them; they have interlocking grooves for this purpose.
