Stuff I like

Hey all! Thanks so much for the all the sweet comments on the board and batten in the office! I haven’t touched it since I finished – my shoulders still cry out for mercy every time I step in the room. :)

Every once in a while, I’ll find a new little doodad or product, and if I like it, I’ll think – “This (insert cool thing here) is so nifty, I need to tell my Squeezies about it!”

I think about you often, I do. ;)

But one little cool doodad does not make a post, so I thought I would show you a few of them all at once. Some of these we’ve been using for years, some just a few weeks.

First up, some super saahhhweet organization from my pal, your pal, everybody’s pal -- IKEA. I picked up these on a recent trip and love LOVE them:

iron storage

They hold your iron on the wall, all tucked away nice and organized. I know, it’s the little things. It doesn’t take much. I’m easy to please. I told you, IKEA makes me happy. :)

I think they were $3.99 each. The mini ironing board (for shirt sleeves) I hung with a Command hook (love those too).

I got two holders for our two irons – one is for hubby’s work clothes, and one for my drapery projects. I use hemming tape and there were some unfortunate hemming-tape-residue-on-the-work-pants incidents. So now we have his and hers irons. His is the manly dark one, mine is the dainty light one. So cute.

And did you notice the little cord holders? Um, that put me over the edge happy, cause you know cords give me the heebs.

Next up, a knock your head against the wall cause I WHY didn’t I think of this, the Zip-It:

zip it

Oh my glorious, this thing ROCKS. I love this little $2 jobbie – you just put it down your drain and pull up. All the nasty comes up with it. You’ll thank me for not showing you – I’ll let you experience that for yourself.

I found it forever ago, and I’m never going back to the nasty chemicals to unclog our drains. I have this thing about Drano. It freaks me OUT. Every time I’d use it, I’d turn on all the fans, open every window, close the doors behind me, and leave the house for three days.

A little bit of an exaggeration, but not much. :) I don’t remember where I got our Zip It, but I’ve seen them at Target, and you can find out more at their website here. (If you have a weak stomach, do not watch the video on their site. For reals.)

A couple of years ago, we found the BEST, fluffiest, softest, more absorbent towels EVER. And we found them at Meijer of all places.

I am gaga over these towels:

I kid you not, I adore them. They are hands down the best towels we’ve ever owned. We’ve spent good money on much more expensive brands and these beat them in price, quality and comfort any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

They’re called New Heritage, and I believe the large towel is $9.99:

new heritage towels

I’m not kidding you – they are luscious. I’ve washed them meeellions of times and they hold up amazingly well. They’re softer than the day we bought them, they don’t snag, and they get you dry.

We love them so much, we got rid of all of our older towels and only use these now. They come in about seven colors I think, but no white, which is kind of a bummer.

The last of my cool stuff is for the kitchen. I found these oven mitts at Crate and Barrel last year:

crate and barrel silicone mitt

I got my first one with a gift card (they are $9.99), and loved it so much I went back for another. Eventually I got rid of all of my other oven mitts, they are that great. They’re grippy enough that they hold on tight to pans, they wash so easily (I rinse them or put them in the dishwasher) and they take up so little storage space.

Speaking of silicone (this stuff is amazing, eh?) I found this little strainer ($5.99 I think?) at TJMaxx last summer:

Doesn’t look like a strainer huh?

BOOM:

It pops out. I don’t know why, but this thing gets me all giddy. Ingenious.

This one is pretty small, and it still hold a good amount:

pop out strainer

It washes so easily, and takes up a sliver of storage space in the drawer. I’m on the lookout for slightly larger versions as well.

I guess they make storage containers like this too now. The brilliance out there astounds me. Again, WHY doesn’t my brain think of this stuff? Don’t you love how you see something like this and you’re all DUH…but you would never think of it?

At least my head doesn’t. :)

So there. you. go. My favorites doodads of late. Nuggets of awesome. Good stuff. Stuff I like. Anything you’ve found lately that you love? Trinkets, tools, stuff that works? I love hearing about things that work and hold up for moms and families.

P.S. I’m not getting paid by any of these companies, I just like their stuff. So I share. Cause they rock.

P.P.S. If you can find the bag of Cool Ranch Doritos in a picture above, you get a gold star.

  2. LOL - the little triangles from Heaven, I mean, the Doritos - are in the one with the silicone oven mitt. :)

  3. I believe I spy Dorito's behind the oven mitt..
    Loved this post - thanks so much for sharing. My husband is a plumber and I still want one of those pull the nasty stuff out of the sink things!!

  4. Thanks so much for posting this info!! I've been looking for something to unclog my drain that wasn't chemicals or too expensive. I just went to ebay and ordered the zip it for $1.40 total cost. :) Now I might look into the iron hanger. Anything that helps organize is great!

  5. okay, since you tempted me with the "don't watch it if you have a weak stomach", I was drawn like a moth to a flame...and now I wish I hadn't. :)

  6. Sick... that zip it thing. I am going looking for one of those tomorrow!

  7. Oh My God we love our Crate and Barrel oven mitts too! They're my favorite thing to use in the kitchen -- always!! We registered for them and get a bunch in green to match our kitchen. SO FUN. I don't hink I'll ever use another kind of oven mitt. I even got my husband into them.

  8. Oven mitt! Pampered Chef has a larger collapsable strainer, it's probably larger in price also. Totally worth it though, I love mine!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Mmmm...Cool Ranch Doritos! We need to invent inter-share where we can share treats through the internet.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Thanks so much for this post! That drain ungunkifier thing sounds amazing!! I too cringe every time I have to run to the store to buy draino. Makes me worried about what my family is breathing in! Now I'm totally gonna be on the lookout for a zip it! Thanks...oh and those oven mitts looks AHHHMAAZING too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have similar silicone mitts and I did the exact same thing...threw all the rest of my other ones away. I found mine at Dollar tree. Of course I have never seen them there again. If I do I am grabbing a meeeelion of them to give them away. totally gotta try that zip it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Love your blog! You are an inspiration! LOVE LOVE LOVE all the stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The Zip It is brilliant. I've been using it for about a year, and haven't touched the other stuff {Drano, yuck} since!

    ReplyDelete
  14. i don't like to use silicone for cooking or baking in them directly, but i LOVE the pastry brush (so easy to rinse, no hairs) and i have been eyeing those mitts but haven't taken the plunge yet. i think i might. i'll look for ones with those grippy things like yours.

    and i'm right there with you on ikea. smart design. especially for small spaces :)

    have a great weekend sarah. thanks for sharing like you always do.

  15. I went online to look at those bath towls and they were only $3.63!!! I am so excited to try them thanks for the great post!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I used my Zip it just this morning! I love those things! I also found the bath towel sale online. I got 4 of them to go in my newly redecorated bathroom. I'm so excited to get them! Thanks for telling us all about them!

    ReplyDelete
  17. And because you told me not to watch the video...what did I actually do? Gross. But I am SO going to get one of those things tomorrow! Fingers crossed I can find one at Target now that your meeelions of readers are all going out to find one!

    ReplyDelete
  18. :D I want the Zip thingy and the iron holder...once I get a "permanent house" :D

    BUT, I will warn you, the collapsable Tupperware is dangerous. Don't try to close them like you do normal tupperware, which you press against the counter! I did this at my mother-in-laws and almost squished out all the leftovers!

    ReplyDelete
  19. "It touched me!"

    so funny. the video is gross for people that have never cleaned out their drains before. My drain has a cross piece that separates it into quarters and so the zip-it doesn't fit in mine. I have the "joyful" task of pulling all the hair out by hand. Hey, it beats a poopy diaper anyday.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have been meaning to blog about the zip-it sink unclogger for months, but I just could not stomach putting all those photos I took up on my blog. ICK! But that thing totally rocks. I bought mine at Home Depot for $2.

    Also, the popping strainer, I've seen bigger round ones with a handle at Target and I *think* I saw a big 2-pack at Costco, but I may be remembering wrong.

  21. Thanks for sharing about the Zip-it! I, too, am totally freaked out by Drano. Hate that nasty stuff. This looks like a great solution.
    As always, love your blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh. Em. And a gee...I am totally loving that iron holder!!! Just today I was complaining about the iron! It is SO the little things... Thank goodness I'm heading to Ikea this weekend - now to pray they have one at my store! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for the tips! I'll look for that Zip It. Drain cleaners are expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That zip it thing is awesome! I have had one for a few years and it WORKS! Love your posts, pictures, suggestions and everything you talk about!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I need that iron hanger thingie. It could change my life. I've seen them at Target/WM for lots more...need to head up to IKEA!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I believe I spy the Doritos behind the oven mitt. Does that get me my gold star?! Thanks for sharing. I love love love when others share cool, practical, sensibly priced things they find. Makes me happy. When wife is happy, house is happy!

  27. I have been looking for new towels and your post inspired me to look. I found them on sale for 3.63....you might want to grab some more!!!

  28. I LOVE posts like this! Maybe I'm a stalker and not a squeezie but I love seeing what kind of stuff other people use and love :) so, thanks for sharing

  29. Hubs found out about those Zip-it things on a home-improvement video on You-Tube... and we're total fans!

    Yeah, I spotted the doritos with the oven mitt... I just had to talk myself out of a bag of those two days ago... but I may give in today. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  30. You might just pass out when you see the larger collapsible strainer/cutting board Martha Stewart makes. It fit's over one side of your sink and has a hole in the board so you can strain, chop and shove the scraps through the hole into the garbage disposal. Also makes a great area to serve from if counter space is limited. Thanks for a great post as usual, Sarah!

  31. How timely as I just used the Zip it that I bought last year just this past week. My drain in my vanity was reeeaaallly slow and by golly...there was a bunch of hair plugging it up. I want to use it on the shower but just know I'll be grossed out.
    I always use the "hook things" on the iron holder to hold my ironing board and it works great - then I wrap my cord on it. Two jobs in one! Great invention.
    Thanks for sharing your favorite finds (like Oprah)

    ReplyDelete
  32. That Zip It thing is pretty cool. I need that for my bathroom sink. Oh, and I found the bag of Doritos. Cool Ranch is my fav so OF COURSE I would find them!

    ReplyDelete
  33. first of all THANK YOU for not showing the drain goo. Like watching those colonic videos I assume, ugh.

    Love the iron holders, and the his and hers. I'll have to make a trip to Ikea.

    Thanks for the tips! Happy to have found your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Our potholders are in terrible condition, so that little guy by C&B looks very appealing to me right now! Great to know how well it works.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I need the Zip-It! Also, I got my collapsible strainer at Bed, Bath and Beyond. You have to get one! It is so much easier to store and mine has a handle that pulls out so that it can fit across the sink.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love that oven mit. We zapped it with our registry gun years ago just as a "for fun" item but use it more then anything else we got!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am bummed....I wanted to see the gross stuff from your sink because that would be one thing where my house decor would beat yours. HAHAHAHA!

    Love this and I have those mitts too. Love them, but haven't thrown my others away yet. Towels? You mean they aren't supposed to feel like paper towel? Hmm...I may need to rethink this.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Bed bath & beyond has round somewhat traditional looking strainers that collapse, I got all 4 of our girls one for stocking stuffers two years ago, (hard to fit in a stocking though, lol). Great post, thanks .....love the grippy things!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love Crate and Barrell, I'm going to have to get those oven mitts!!

    I haven't tried these yet but here's a link to some collaspsible colanders w/ folder handles!

  40. Ooh I need that drain thing. I just bought some Drano for my tub. And I'd also like the strainer that collapses. Mine take up so much darn room. Thanks for the info!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Such great little ideas. I love the his and hers irons. I think I will do that too. And I am diggin the mitt. Much improved over the cloth one that I can't ever keep clean.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love this post! I'm definitely going out to get a Zip It. Like totally. And also, I registered for (and got!) a large pop-out strainer when we got married. It was from Bed, Bath & Beyond and it is Ahh-mazing. It is similar (if not exactly) like this -- http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=14539654. I love it, also, because it fits over the sink! INGENIOUS, I tell you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've never heard of 'zip-it', wow! With kids in the house it is a must, can't stand using drano, etc. Thanks! Janell

    ReplyDelete
  44. We've had a Zip-it since I was in high school (3 teenage girls, 1 bathroom- it was that or buy stock in Drano!), and they are awesome! We have rental properties and whenever they say the drain is clogged I want to tell them to just get one of these to save us the cost of a plumber!

    I think the Doritos were in the pic behind the over mitt? I love "I Spy" games! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you for this post! I went to Amazon and IMMEDIATELY purchased the Zip-it. I have been scratching up our drains trying to unclog them with wire hangers. I shouldn't be this excited about uncloging my drains - but I will be watching my mailbox every day until this come. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  46. This was a very interesting post! First, I have never seen an ironing board for sleeves... what the?

    I also totally need a zip it although I'm sure I'll be really grossed out by what I find.

    Those crazy little oven mitts... I hate them, even though they work since they look and feel so thin I think I'm going to burn the crap out of myself every time I use them. Now you know how weird I am. ;)

    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The Zip it is the best! How does one become a squeezie?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I absolutely love your blog!! I found it one day by accident and have been a dedicated fan ever since. I check back every few days to see what you have to say. I just wanted to say thanks for the help and information you provide. I am a faithful fan... :)

    P.S. The doritos are behind the oven mitt...

    We have the ironing board holder too! and the Zip it !!! um, love those things too!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love my zip-it. I have gone through several of them over the years! It almost becomes an obsession cleaning out drains to see just how much gunk the zip-it can get out! It is worth every penny and it one of the cheapest little gadgets you will ever find!

    ReplyDelete
  54. You can get the pop out strainer in many sizes at Bed Bath and Beyond. They are on sale right now and if you sign up for their mailing list, you will get tons of coupons.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Went online at Miejer and found your lovely towels on massive discount! Large ones only $3.63!!!! Yay! I might have to check out that Zippy thing too, we just bought our home and it is 15 years old, I might have to get my hubs to tackle that job!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I didn't know those were cord holders for the irons. I had one and I hung my ironing board from it while I just wrapped the cord around the iron.

  57. Everone is going to get a Zip It in their Xmas stocking this year. Love it!

  58. I have the collapsible strainer and two huge collapsible bowls from The Pampered Chef. I'm totally obsessed! People comment on them every time I bring them to a party or something. Silicone is totally genius.

  59. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment. I def watched the zipit video. And promptly ordered 2. Awesome rec! Thanks!

  63. I so need that drain unclogger thing! My husband teases me that I shed like a dog, and our new shower doesn't have an easy way to put a hair catcher on it like the old tub did.

    We just moved into our new house and I've been stalking your blog. I've pretty much decided that you need to come help me decorate. The good news? I'm in Ohio. The bad news...still a drive from the Ballards Outlet, but a girl can dream, right?

  64. I have to get that Zip-It. Looks like just what the drain doctor ordered.

    Someone just recently told me about the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Bath Scrubber and let me tell you - it was like magic!

  65. What neat items. I've just seen some things I've never seen before. The hot pad, and the drain cleaner I'm going to have to get. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thank you! I am off to buy a Zip-It thingy right now. My bathroom drain has just clogged up again. Perhaps when I clean it this time I will have a more efficient tool than my extra set of tweezers (used only for cleaning purposes now, I swear!). Great tips!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have been looking for some fluffeh towels! My dear husband claims to have a sensitive tush and wants fluffier towels. Thanks for the recommendation!
    On another note, I remember seeing a free homemade zip-it the other day. Here is the link. http://dollarstorecrafts.com/2010/12/man-crafts-recycled-plastic-drain-de-clogger/

  68. Love posts like this!

    Vinegar and baking soda is great for minor drain cleaning, so I'd imagine with the Zip it would work miracles.

  69. You can get a larger pop out strainer like that at bed bath and beyond!

  70. I HAD to go find the Zip It today! Target doesn't carry it but Home Depot does. I love it!! What a great, simple idea. It works as well as the videos showed. Thank you so much for sharing!

  71. Of course I watched the video 'cause you said not to. I'm scarred for life...really.

  72. What GREAT ideas you've given us!! I'm getting that Zip-it right away!
    I think you sold out the New Heritage towels 'cause now the only one you can find is a washcloth in tan. : ( Maybe they'll make more!
    Thanks for your info!!!

  73. I've been looking for high-quality, long-lasting towels that are affordable. So sad that Meijer sold out; I can't find them anywhere else! Does anyone have recommendations/ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  74. LOVE the Zip it! I think I have one in each bathroom... with 3 girls in the house and 2 long haired cats they are a must!

    ReplyDelete
  75. The ironing board goes on the bottom hooks... you can see an image here: www.shopgetorganized.com/item/IRONING_BOARD_HOLDER/W32366?src=GOCJFEED

    I suppose you could still wrap the cords there too though... although I'm pretty sure that was designed for the board.

    ReplyDelete
  76. It looks like (at least from the website) that the New Heritage towels are no longer going to be sold at Meijer. Do you know if the new towel collections are of similar quality?

    Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh, you had me at the towels. I have been looking everywhere to replace our Natica, best sofest ever towels. They are long gone. So I was ready to take your advise and check these out, but they are on clearance on the site... Bummer!

Well, actually, we are 3 hours from any big city, sooo.......But soon, fingers crossed, we will be moving to the big city where they actually have an IKEA store. Seriously, kid in a candy store time, when that happens! Love what you are doing in the office. I'm crazy for B & B!

  80. I have been looking and asking about good towels. Over the last several years no matter what I bought or spent, the towels would snag once the towels fore so thick that they didnt absorb the water from your skin. Monday I am heading to Meiers and then donating allot of towels to our local homeless shelter. THANK YOU !!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I just saw that Meijer is selling those heritage towels for $.99 online! :) Just thought you should check it out! ;)

  82. Pampered Chef!!!! You will find collapsible stuff there! I love mine and everyone is jealous of them. It's great for apartment living when you are low on kitchen storage.
    Another item from P Chef that I enjoy is their strainers that have bowls and lids to go along with them. It's great for fruit and you can pop it in the fridge or take it to go!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Why? Why did I do it? Why did I watch the videos on the Zip-It website? I honestly feel like I'm going to hurl right now! Ack! That said, I am SO buying some of those! I have long hair and I shed like a Persian cat, so my drains clog up fast and I've been reaching down them with my own ungloved fingers to pull up the hair clogs (gag!) and even then, my drains have been draining slowly, so out comes the Drano Power Max, which of course canNOT be environmentally friendly.

    I am dying to get my mitts on a pair of those oven mitts! I've heard before that they rock, and your endorsement only solidifies my need to own a pair.

    I'm too late to the party to comment on the Doritos ...

    Best,

  84. I have to echo the statements about the Zip-it drain cleaner. I have for years used Drain-o and other similar drain cleaners and they never really worked and were very toxic. We finally had so much trouble with one drain that I went to the home aisles in Walmart looking for some sort of snake to take it to the next level. I found the Zip-it thingy and it was only $2.00 and so I thought 'what the heck..." and we have never needed Drain-o again. It is a MUST have!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Thanks for posting about the Zip-It. I was in the market for some drain cleaner for my slow running sink (due to all that long hair coming out...I should be bald by now) when I came across your post. I found one yesterday and promptly used it. It worked great! I only wish I had gotten more as it is only a single-use product. Thanks for the tip!

  86. i like your blog so much and i have decorative paints blog it name is dekorat , i hope to visit it and post comment there , thanks

  87. Star for me!! Chips are in the background of the pan grabber picture. Thanks for the throw out about the drain clog grabber. I have been considering purchasing one but was unsure if the gross-out would be worth it! I think it probably will not to have to smell that awful Drain-o!

    Thanks! and I love reading your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love all of your organization posts. They are always practical and, well..., organized! I went immediately to Target and bought the Zip-It! I was tired of standing in three inches of water in the shower. It worked so well and I am singing its (and your) praises to everyone. I try to eliminate the gross details! I don't consider it a one-time-use gadget. I had a paper towel handy to grab the "stuff" and threw it away. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Went and bought a ZipIt this weekend and used it on every drain in the house - feels awesome to have all the drains clean - now THAT's spring cleaning!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  90. soft towels, yum! I'm ganna have to hit up my local meijer for these towels. I've noticed lately that they've been carrying nicer, modern decor too. I can never just walk in there for groceries..i have to look at there home stuff too :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. Um. I watched the video, right before bedtime I might add.

    I was doing OK until I saw the roach come out entangled in the (hair?).

    I think I'm gonna buy one now though. The idea of all that gunk accumulating a couple of inches away from my toes in the shower is definite motivation to eradicate it.

  94. I posted the other day that I was going to go out and buy the towels.... Sad story......
    Meijers no longer carries those towels. I even went on line :)
    I have been very unhappy with our towels and your review had me going out shopping the next day.
    Has anyone been able to find them?

  95. I have had one of those drain thingys for a while now and I love it! Much better than the needle nose pliers. I am enjoying your blog, I am so new to this whole world of blogging. I have been on the computer all day and can't stop. I have found so many wonderful ideas.
