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.
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.
