Wednesday Wag Out!

The Go Plate

Every party need these. This cool plastic party tray fits right over your drink, so you can hold everything in one hand. I love it! No more fumbling with a plate and a drink in one hand while trying to pet the pug with the other. There are bumps and ridges on the underside of the opening in the middle so that cups, bottles, and cans stand in place, while the plate stays balanced.

The plate is made from RPET (recycled leftover industrial plastic from large projects) and can go right into the dishwasher to be used again and again. No more paper plates for you - yuk! It is also fully recyclable so when it no longer functions as designed, simply place it out with your curbside recycling.

Get some plates in time for that Labor Day bash at http://www.kegworks.com/.

USBCELL AA rechargable batteries

Traditional one use batteries are a thing of the past now that rechargeable batteries have made great strides with improved longevity. The only problem with rechargeable batteries? How to recharge them. Just when you thought you've seen it all, the USBCell come along!

Some really smart guy solved the recharging problem by building the charger into the battery. What a great idea! And the best part? The charger is a standardUSB port that is built right into the battery. When the battery is getting low, just pop the cap off, and put it into a USB port. I could be charging batteries right now if I had these USBCells. By the time I'm ready to go to bed, I could of had a fully charged battery.

You can recharge the batteries up to 500 times, so these are worth their weight in gold. Head on over to http://www.thinkgeek.com/ to get a pack of 2 batteries.

Recycled Rice Bag Storage Bin

I hear this every day from Mom "A place for everything and everything in it's place". She is not talking to me when she says it, but she is hoping that someone (Dad) hears her so that he will put his stuff away. When I found these cool storage bins, she threatened to line Dad's office with them.

Made from recycled rice bags, these study accordion-style bins are definitely eco-friendly. There are two strong attached inserts on the bottom so the big is really sturdy when it's open. There are snaps on the outside of the bin so you can close it up when you're not using it. The bin is perfect for storing all kinds of stuff like magazines, books, clothes, and even stuffies.


Mom is threatening to buy the whole lot of them, so if you want a bin, go get it today at http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/ But hurry because Mom is going to get Dad organized if it kills her!

Hey Pearlie Poo! We definitely need to get the trays for the next party. Maybe Emmitt can make mini meatloaves for Walter's party and we can bring the trays.

Hi dw! Glad you like the magazine baskets. Mom will like them even more when I tell her they're on sale. Mom needs about a million of them, but instead of buying that many, I'm am making her do some magazine purging.

Pughugs right back at ya!

Ok...mom is all over those batteries!

Stubby said...

Hey Salinger! Your mom and my mom are both all over those batteries. Aren't some people so smart to think up these things? Just think of all the things we could invent if we weren't busy eating, sleeping, and guarding the house!
