Things I Bought – Gadgets

I love my stand mixer, but when I just want to make something small, like a bowl of whipped cream, it’s just not worth the hassle to pull it out. I often just use a whisk, but that also takes quite a bit of elbow grease, so I picked up the right tool for the job.

I’ve already used it, and it works like a dream.

Being a resident of Canada, I own of a lot of sweaters and sweaters have a tendency to pill. I’m constantly buying sweater combs and they last for about three uses before they end up in pieces.

Like this:

The plastic combs are not particularly expensive, but it adds up when I’m constantly replacing them. Plus, I hate the waste – both from the financial and environmental perspective.

I kept seeing The Laundress products on the J. Crew website.

The comb was a little pricey, but it looks like a quality product, and if it means not having to replace it anytime soon, I was willing to make the investment. Since it wasn’t an exclusive J. Crew product, I looked around for a local supplier, and found one in a store just a few blocks from home. We’ll see how it measures up to the cheap plastic Walmart version.

These vintage pocket binoculars were a pointless impulse purchase. It goes against my self imposed rule of not buying useless things to clutter up the house, but I just had to have them.
