Cool Buys on a Budget

I love scoring a good deal. Sometimes, the deals I get are so good, I call my mother to tell her about it. Here are a few cool things for your house that won’t cost you a fortune. 

Robot Sweeper

I hate housework with the intensity of a thousand dying suns, so if there’s something out there that’s going to make it easier, perfect. Well, someone invented something that absolves me from sweeping. It’s the O Cedar Duster and it’s perfect for pet owners. I’ve seen the robot vacuum cleaners that cost hundreds of dollars and they don’t suck as well as they said they would. This is just a duster with an electrostatic cloth that picks up dust and pet hair. It runs for eight hours on a single charge and costs $40.

Beverage Fizzer

This is great for any household that goes through a lot of pop. Glen drinks Diet Pepsi like it’s going out of style. At $5 a 12 pack, that’s a ton of money! There are other make at home soda fizzers, but they can cost upwards of $80. Hamilton Beach now makes something called the Fizzini. It does exactly what the other guys do, but at $60, it costs way less.

Kitchen Tools

I have a drawer full of kitchen tools. I love kitchen tools. Spatulas, pancake turners, ladles, zesters, spoons, tongs, I love it all. What I don’t love is a drawer full of kitchen tools that won’t shut. Ugh. Well, now thanks to Vacu Vin, we won’t have that problem anymore. Vacu Vin’s designs have a larger kitchen tool with a smaller one nestled in the handle. There’s a pasta spoon with a timer, a veggie knife and a brush, a turner and tongs, the list goes on and on. The best part? Nothing costs over $15.
