I was THRILLED to get to try out this electric mouse trap. One of the things I have issues with having rabbits, chickens and turkeys is the rodents. No matter how hard I try, no matter what kind of armor I load it into, there are ALWAYS rodents trying to get my animal feed. It’s just a fact of life that if you have barn yard animals you have rodents. While I pick up the feed at night and lock it into metal trash cans and such, there are always crumbs that were left by the birds and rabbits, and that means rodents. I’m always trying new ways to keep them at a dull roar since they breed so fast. This mouse trap was easy to set up put near where I keep my feed cans. I’ve been using it about a week and so far I’ve noticed a serious reduction in rodents. If you can place it close to the feed area, you’ve got a winner! It kills the rodents, so all you have to do is dispose of them into your regular trash, or burn them in your fire pit, no need to worry about catch and release, since that really doesn’t solve the issue.
Anti Hair Loss.. I know it sounds odd, but bare with here for a minute. Have you ever noticed that you seem to “shed” during certain times of the year, well we DO! We may not have full blown coats like our fur babies, but the length of day, health and over all beating we put on our hair really affects us. I noticed that certain times of year I find more hair in my shower than others and I can even feel how much thinner it is, which I why I wanted to try this! I’ve been using it for about a week and I have to say, the hair I have seems thicker.. and I seem to be finding less hair at the bottom of my showers when I notice it MOST. It’s all natural and has Argon Oil and Aloe, so it’s AWESOME on your hair. Pamper your hair.. it deserves it!
Let’s talk GARDENING! Yea yea I know.. it’s January, but let’s face it, part of being Self Sustaining is Gardening and my GOAL IN LIFE is to be self sustaining! This little gadget is going to change my life! No more rushing home to run the hose on the garden when it’s a drought outside here in NY which we seem to get EVERY SINGLE JULY! I ACTUALLY test this out here in DECMEBER HEHE…. My neighbors already know I’m a little crazy so they were not surprised to see me run a hose and sprinkler when there’s already a trace of snow on the ground. It was easy to set up, took me like 20 minutes including setting up the sprinkler. I’m THRILLED to have this come next spring and I’m looking forward to an easier gardening year. It can be set up to run for up to 2 hours, which gives my plants plenty of water during a dry season. Since it has 2 set ups for 2 hoses, I can program one to run just before dawna nd one to run just as it’s getting dark, which prevents leaf burn!
Calily Life salts are the perfect solution for my sore and achy muscled. Not very active due to several s with my heart and when I do get physical many times I’m left with very stiff and sore joints. A nice long soak in these and I’m back up and t it again the next day instead of having to wait 2 or 3 days to feel less stiff again. It’s completely Organic which fits in very well with my move towards a more healthy lifestyle. They smell amazing, and use essential oils to help the healing process, instead of dumping even more fake scents and chemicals into your body, go natural!
Calily Life also makes pet shampoo. This one is oatmeal, shea butter and Aloe. His summer my older dog started having issues, patches of dry skin all over and he was chewing at it relentlessly, so I’m giving this shampoo & conditioner a try. So far he’s loving it, it smells nice rinses out easily. I’ve noticed he’s been scratching a lot less, and he smells amazong is a HUGE plus since he’s always on my lap. I love that this has all natural organic ingredients like I would use on myself. I what’s best for my pets just like I do for myself.
This one takes a little bit to figure out. It’s a large hooked stick with multipkle pressure point knobs on it that allows you to work out individual knots in your muscles when there’s no one around to help you. It’s set up so that you can reach ANYWHERE on your back and get the right leverage to dig in and get that knot to release. It’s easy to use after you’ve got the hang of it and works AMAZINGLY well. This would make an excellent present for that someone that hits the gym every week! This one is smaller then the other one I tried.. more girlish with pink on it 🙂
If you or your Significant Other snore, these little things might just give you a great nights sleep. I got these for my boyfriend and they come with 2 sets, one that smaller and one that’s larger. He used them and said they are fairly comfortable and he thinks he will have no issues getting used to them, they are very flexible and soft. They come with a small case to hold them after cleaning. They seemed to work very well, usually he wakes me up at least once a night and so far I haven’t woken up to his snoring in several nights. These work much better than the strips he tried out.
