High capacity laundry pair is a smart solution to endless laundry

If you’ve read any of my recent posts on laundry (see list below), you know that it's a chore I absolutely loathe. I would rather spend an entire weekend cleaning the tile in my bathroom with a toothbrush than do my laundry. Okay, that might be a bit of a stretch, but let’s be honest, laundry sucks–especially when you happen to live in an apartment that doesn’t have in-suite washers and dryers so you have to haul everything down...

QardioArm blood pressure monitor and QardioBase smart scale review

Know thyself. That’s what the Oracle said to Neo in The Matrix; it’s a ancient Greek saying that was originally written on the temple of Apollo at Delphi.

Today we’re looking at two products from Cardio that are a step up from anything I’ve used before. I like them a lot. Read on to find out why.

Office Desks to Increase Productivity


Last week, I wrote about how ergonomically designed office chairs are essential to rear-end comfort and back health. However, even the most fabulous, most space-aged, most comfortable chair in the world means nothing if you’re sitting in front of a desk that is made from a sheet of plywood and two milk crates. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d write a follow up post that highlights some great desk options available at Best Buy.  But first, let’s quickly define what makes a “great desk” and why having one in your work or home office can actually increase productivity. 

Get emergency prepared at home

Canada is considered to be one of the safest countries in the world, but that doesn’t make us immune to natural hazards like floods, earthquakes, landslides, power outages, or storms.

With a few essentials at the ready, you’ll help minimize the impact an emergency may have on you and your family. 

What is the best time of day for a cup of...

I’m not sure about you, but one of the first things I do every morning is brew myself a nice, hot cup of coffee at home.
