The Smart Weigh To Ship Your Packages! #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

Tis’ the season for sending packages. When you are shipping packages and want to print your labels at home, it is important that you weigh them accurately. If your package weight is off, you will either pay more or risk the package being sent back or sent to your recipient with fees owed.

sending-packages

Some people rely on bathroom scales but they are not made to weigh packages. They also can be highly inaccurate. Do you earn extra income selling on eBay or Amazon? If so, you really need to have something better than a bathroom scale.

I want to share a scale I found to be perfect for all my shipping needs. It is the the Smart Weigh USPS UPS Digital Postal Scale.

smart-weigh-scale-box

smart-weigh-postal-scale-5

This scale is heavy duty and has a weight capacity of 440 lbs. It features a high quality stainless steel platform and has an easy to read LCD display. This scale is great for home or office use.

 This scale has some very nice features, use the TARE option to consecutively weigh multiple items, the PCS function accurately gives you a count of items that weigh the same. This scale operates on a 9 Volt battery that is included but it also has a USB cord to use as an additional power source. The scale can display the weight in kg/g/lb/lb:oz and comes with a 2 year warranty.

smart-weigh-postal-scale-1

I was very impressed with this scale, I weighed a variety of items including my kids and my husband, a new vacuum, a 10 lb bag of sugar and more. It was highly accurate and I like that you don’t have to lean over to see the reading. The display is able to be placed eye level or on a counter so that it is easy to read and not obscured by a package.

smart-weigh-scale-3

I have the protective film on still, it is beautiful stainless steel underneath. The OCD is telling me to leave it on so it stays nice. lol

It is easy to operate and has a beautiful gleaming stainless steel platform. We really like the versatility of the USB cable and the high weight capacity. It is really nice to have a shipping scale with a large weight capacity like that. I can even weigh my dogs on it! We think this scale makes a great gift and are adding it to Mommy Ramblings’ 2016 Holiday Gift Guide!

If You Have Pets, Here’s Why You Should Own an Air Blower

 

Almost everyone has pets, and when it comes to having these pets, you want to make sure that you have a way to clean up after accidents that can happen. Whether they’re potty-training, or they knock something over, these areas will have to be thoroughly cleaned out. This can be done, and then you want to have the spot thoroughly dried so that it does not smell, and perhaps the air in the home is not going to do the best job. Compact air blowers are good for these jobs when it comes to it, so make sure to check into all that they are capable of.

Always Clean Up After Pets, Wherever You Are

When you have pets, then you have to make sure that you have the right products for the job. This only comes from being able to choose the right products for the job. With everything from the right chemicals, brushes, scrubbers and air movers, you will be set to take care of not only your pet but the home that you own, as well. This puts everyone in the best position out there to make the most of what is being provided. The air mover can provide this for you, so make sure to have one when you have pets.

CD dogLegLift

Not only can households benefit from the air mover, but doggy daycares, kennels and vet’s offices can also make the most use out of them when the time comes. With an industrial air mover, you can make sure to bring the mover to where it is needed, or you can go strictly with a carpet dryer that will go directly on the carpet where it is wet. With the right air mover, you can be sure to get much more out of carpet drying that needs to be done on old or new carpets.

Give Your Dog A Loving Nudge With Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats-#NudgeThemBack

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.
#NudgeThemBack #CollectiveBias

nudge collage treats

We love our dogs, they are more than pets to us, they are family members.  We have three dogs and they are each very unique in personality and size.  Delilah is our big dog, a purebred American Bulldog and a loyal protector.  Delilah will watch the kids and if any animal or person tries to harm them, they won’t live to tell the tale.  As parents we feel blessed to have a dog that will protect our kids, it makes us feel great to know she’s around since we live out in the country.

Next, we have Zoey, our West Highland White Terrier.  Zoey is always there to “help” with any project.  She is also a fearless protector of our family and our home.  In typical terrier fashion she will be tenacious and persistent if some critter starts hanging around that should not be.  This is not always a great thing, a couple of weeks ago she had it out with a skunk and she was on the losing end.  Those skunks have an unfair advantage!

Last but not least we have tiny Sassafras (Sassy), our Maltese.   Sassy is a sweetheart who does not understand she is tiny.  If the other dogs go off to bark at some intruder, she will go right with them and give it her all.  Her spirit is much bigger than her stature.

The way we love our dogs, we want nothing but the best for them.  We make it a priority to feed them wholesome food and treats that will allow them to live a long, vibrant life. The other day I was in Walmart and saw new dog treats called Nudges® Grillers.  The clear window package showed the treats and they looked just like cuts of steak and chicken that had been freshly grilled.  I am more aware of the ingredients in dog foods and treats and was pleased to see that Nudges® were made in the USA with only USA sourced protein! The number 1 ingredient in the treats was real meat and they did not have artificial flavors or fillers!  These were treats I could feel good about feeding our girls, I picked up a few bags and headed home!

I was really impressed upon opening them, they smelled just like fresh grilled meat and they had a similar texture. One of my young sons asked if this was okay for him to eat, lol.  I told him no, but I think that is a great testimonial for how similar they were to beef or chicken fresh off the grill.  I like them because when we are grilling outside the dogs sit and sniff and want to be included.  Nudges® Grillers Beef and Chicken treats give us a way to include our dogs in our BBQ.  You can learn more and see the full product line up at nudgesdogtreats.com

The taste tests went over great and they just loved the beef and chicken Grillers.  Nudges® also has Sizzlers in Chicken Bacon and Beef & Cheese.  The Grillers and Sizzlers are available in 3 oz or 18 oz bags.  Given our brood, we went with the 18 oz. bags.  I noticed a value size of Jerky Cuts by Nudges® that I want to pick up the next time I am in Walmart.   Check out nudgethemback.com and see how other dog lovers are nudging their best friends and family members back.  You can also stay in touch with them on their Facebook page. So tell me, have you seen the new Nudges® dog treats?   Which ones do you think your dog(s) would like the most?  If you have tried them, I would love to hear what you and your dog thought of them.

Our Bulldog Drama

 

Well, it has been a few weeks since my last post and a lot has happened. When we started out looking for a female, I had sent an email to the breeder we got Diesel from. She did not respond which was strange since we correspond a lot with updates and photos. Anyway, a couple of weeks before we were supposed to pick up our new puppy she wrote me. She told me that she did not know of any breeders but that they searched on the internet at a site called Puppyfind.com and found Diesel’s dad in PA and Mom in VA. Well there are many bulldog breeders in PA so I just asked non nonchalantly  if our new puppy’s breeders name rang a bell. Hubby got home soon after I sent the email and we went for a drive with the kids. Well, I got home to an email that it was the same breeder of Diesel’s dad.

To make a long story very short, Diesel and the new puppy are closely related. The new pups father is Diesel’s grandfather, no wonder she looked so similar to our Diesel. Our hearts were broken because we already loved the pup even though we never met her. We knew we could not breed them and that was what our intention was so we had to look for another female. After much searching we found more related dogs even way out in the mid west. We finally found our new princess Delilah. She has a totally different look than Diesel, much more Johnson but she is the sweetest little thing and a few days later we were able to travel to Allentown during Jimi’s vacation and pick her up. We are so happy with her and know this is meant to be and that their pups will be a great hybrid of the Johnson Scott types.

It was so great to be able to pick her up on Jimi’s vacation and I was thrilled that I was finally able to go to a “Tuesday Morning” store that was also in Allentown.  It was a beautiful day for a drive and the weather was sunny and warm.  Luke had a few rough spots because it seems all of his teeth have decided to make their debut at the same time.  Poor baby but he was still a trooper.  We were able to meet both parents and the remaining siblings but we still picked the one we had chosen over the internet.

So I guess it is as they say, “Alls well that ends well.”  At least we can hope and pray it is so.
