Portable Water Filter Bag Review


I received this Portable Water Filter Bag for free or at a discount for my honest review. This post may contain affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you. You can see my full disclosure Here.

With the way things are right now, I have been working on getting a Bug Out Bag (BOB) together so that if something does happen, me and my family will have some basic supplies. This water filter bag will fit in quite nicely.

This bag will help to make sure that we will have clean drinking water. I still want to get several more too because of this. This bag should filter around 300 gallons of water. This bag filters about 99% of waterborne parasites and bacteria. I am in the process of trying to figure out how to test this so that I will know that the water is good rather than just taking a company’s word for it. But to start with, it’s a great idea. We all need clean drinking water and if something happens, this should be a way of ensuring my family has it.

Checking the Map to Ensure You Can Get Repairs

*This is a sponsored Post*

Checking the Map to Ensure You Can Get Repairs

The Miami metro region is an expansive area. The many businesses that operate in the area often find it easier to serve their clients within set boundaries rather than across a citywide map. With that, they divide up their operations into separate service boundaries and dispatch contractors to help customers within the lines of these particular regions.

Before you call a repairman to fix your fridge, freezer, ice maker, or other kitchen appliance, you may need to first find out what boundary your home is located in and what division you should call. When retaining services for repairs, replacement, and sub zero maintenance Hallendale Beach residents like you may also want to know for sure that you are in an area that is handled by the company you want to hire for the job.

Referencing the Map

Even if you have lived in the area for years, you may still not be familiar with the actual geographic boundaries in the area. You might have a vague idea of where certain neighborhoods are located but still wonder what area you are located in and what proximity to the company you have.

You can verify this information by viewing the map on the website. The map pinpoints the precise neighborhoods that the company has divisions in and what reach it has in the area. You can determine if or when to hire the services for your fridge, freezer, and other appliances based on the map details.

When to Hire Services

You may wonder if you really even need to hire out the repair job. You might think that the appliance will thaw itself out or that the warming of the temperature inside the fridge or freezer is just a sign of the appliance wearing down because of age.

Unless you are a skilled technician, you have no way of knowing this information for sure. You can guess but risk the life and safety of your appliance at the same time. Rather than guess, you can have your concerns addressed in full by retaining the services of a repair tech.

You can also take precautions on your own to keep your appliances lasting for as long as possible. The website offers simple tips like not packing your fridge and keeping the freezer door closed firmly. These measures may prevent the appliances from malfunctioning and needing repairs later.

Mini Flashlight Review

My hubby loves this light so far. He has been using it for about a week now and so far says it’s just as good as his bigger flashlights.

This light might be mini but my hubby says it works just as well as his bigger lights. This light has several settings: low, medium, bright, and strobe beams so it’s sure to work for just about anything. It has a clip so that you can put it in your pocket and clip it on so you don’t lose it. This light is smaller than my hand but works great. It takes on AAA battery that was not included. It has a shield that can be placed on it to make it look more like a candle.

All in all, it works well and seems to be pretty durable. The hubby likes it so far and will continue to use it until it no longer works.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day for February 14, 2018

 

If you want a peace of mind, you’ll have to learn to control what you put off in it. You cannot have negative thoughts and expect to have peace in your life. You cannot hold on to the things that make you angry, uncomfortable, irritable, sad….and expect to have a peace of mind. Let go of the negative and think positively. – Marcia M. Edwards

Wire free Push up Bra

If you are looking for a comfortable bra ladies I may have what you are looking for! There are 4 different colors to choose from too. I chose black simply because it will work with most of my clothes, but you don’t have to.

Wirefree push up Bra http://amzn.to/2C9wn6r

Since this bra doesn’t have the underwire, I love it. I have worn underwire for a long time now, but I tend to look more for comfort now than beauty. I’m sure many of you can relate to that. Don’t get me wrong, I like to look good still, but I also like to be comfortable. This bra gives me the best of both. It provides the lift that am woman over 40 possibly needs, yet makes me feel good while wearing it. In other words, it provides support and is still very comfortable.

This thermometer is soft and easy to use. It also appears to be reliable because we tested against the one I have at home and the temperatures came out the same.

This thermometer is soft and flexible so that it shouldn’t hurt baby. The thermometer appears to be reliable because we checked it against one we have at home and got the same reading from both. I love the colors of this thermometer too although I don’t feel the pictures do the color justice. It’s a beautiful purple color. This thermometer will switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius degrees

Lavender Essential Oil

If you have read any of my blog, you know I love essential oils. Of course we want to have and find the best oils available for use otherwise we get junk which doesn’t work. I know that many of us have had that issue before. You order an essential oil that is supposed to be pure only to find that it really isn’t.

Lavender Essential Oil http://amzn.to/2BXyI4o

This oil says that it has been certified through gas chromatography/ Mass Spectrometry. This is a process that tells exactly what is in an essential oil. It breaks it down to it’s compounds and can show how pure an oil is. Of course this is usually something that you can’t do at home. I am not sure however, if a company can claim this fact even if it’s not the case. I have always used the paper test to check the purity of my oils. An essential oil that is pure should not feel oily or leave an oily residue on white paper. You can see my paper test below. By this I would say this oil is not a pure oil.

I love these boxes. There are so many different things they can be used for. I actually got this one for the hubby so that he can sort out nuts and bolts for work, but the options available for this box are so many.

Plastic Storage Box http://amzn.to/2EFZaCG

These boxes are great because you can adjust the size of the compartments to fit what you need them to fit. The options for what you can put in these boxes are endless too. You can use them for craft supplies (I have many that I use for this purpose), or any other little things that you want to be able to find later…lol. I have seen some people use them to hold snacks for their kids, or what my hubby will use it for is to sort out different sized nuts and bolts so he can find them easier. No matter what you may want to use this box for, it’s always a good idea to have several on hand.

I have enjoyed teas for a long time now. This is a new one that I just had the opportunity to try. The dark flavor is very smooth and not bitter in my opinion.

Organic Oolong Qilan Loose Herbal Tea http://fave.co/2rZnGMj

This tea is not bitter like some I have tried which I find very nice. 1 tsp of loose leaf tea with 6 oz of water is the perfect cup of tea from what I can tell. Let it steep for about 5 minutes to achieve the best flavor. I think if you go a little longer than that it may reach the point of being bitter but 5 minutes was a great flavor.

ORGANIC EARL GREY TEA

I have long been a lover of tea. I think Earl Grey has always been a favorite of mine. The fact that this tea is organic makes it even better as far as I’m concerned.

Earl Grey Tea http://fave.co/2nsm34P

This tea has the classic Earl Grey flavor that I feel in love with years ago. However, since I have been slowly removing chemicals from our diet and our health, I seem to be able to taste them in things I ingest. In this tea that chemical taste is not there. It’s a smooth flavor of the tea alone, nothing else. This is a loose leaf tea which means you have to have an infuser to use it. 1 tsp of tea leaves is good for 6 ozs of hot water. Let it steep for at least 5 minutes to get the full flavor of the tea. Remover the infuser and it’s done.

Alarm Keychain Review

In my opinion, every woman should be carrying one of these keychains. The alarm is loud enough that it will draw attention to you right away, which in a situation where you feel threatened, could save a life.

Alarm Keychain http://amzn.to/2DC5V6W

The alarm on this is loud! I have added this to my keychain and wouldn’t take it off now. The alarm can be set off two different ways. There is a pin on top that can be pulled or a button on the side that can be pushed. If you pull the pin, you simply push it back in to stop the alarm when it’s no longer needed. If you push the button on the side, it will stop when you let it go. This keychain also had an LED light which is activated with a button on the other side.
