Shape ‘n Store
I thought this cool gadget was BRILLIANT. They have two different versions – one that’s set up for making hamburger patties or freezing soups and stews and other thick types of liquids – Think homemade BABY FOOD. The other is for smaller items like cookie dough. It’s a great idea to get uniform, freezable foods that store in your freezer or go right on your grill.
It’s non-toxic, dishwasher safe, free from BPA’s and other harmful plastics. You can make 8 identical octagonal patties, or whatever you are using it for. Keeps them separated and free from freezer burn if you are storing them for future use. And if you’re really clever, you can make stuffed burgers by smooshing two patties together with something yummy in the middle of them.
Customers are saying that these Shape ‘n Store items are very clever and practical. And they are coming up with all sorts of things they can use it for. Some of them are buying several to use for different foods.

Works better than expected! My kitchen drawers have never been so organized – everything has a place and stays put. I decided to order more to finish off other drawers that badly need to be organized!

My next brilliant organizing strategy is Bedstackers. Is your bedside table as overcrowded as mine is? I also have a sleep app that requires my phone to be on my bed somewhere to measure my sleep. So, you know what I’ve been doing? I’ve taken a pillowcase and safety pinned it to the side of my mattress to make a little pocket for my phone – lame!
So, that’s why I NEED one of these Bedstackers. It holds your book, your remote, your phone, your glasses, and stores your charging cord in a special loop. How cool is that? It even comes in two size depending on how much STUFF you need it to hold.
Here’s what people are saying about the Bedstackers products.
I bought this for my husband and he loves it. I bought him the smaller bedside pocket and he has been using it for his glasses, tablet, and phone. With these items in the pocket, he still has space in the form of 3 pockets. The material is thick and seems very durable. It slid easily between our box spring and mattress and has not shifted or slid down at all. The color is a beautiful light gray that fits in great with our bedroom. We are very pleased with this purchase!

Dog Supplies Organizer
This was listed as an organizer for pet supplies (and most of us could use something like this for our dogs), but a lot of other people were using them to carry their groceries, sports items for the kids, and items to organize their trunk. I’ve got one of these in my trunk and I keep my jumper cables, some water, and a few other odds and ends in it.
It’s made from heavy canvas and it has 2 large compartments, padded handles, and several outside pockets for leashes or small items.
It’s got almost all 5 Star ratings on Amazon.
Bought two dog supply containers to use with groceries. We set them in our grocery cart and used them to separate our items along the way. At check out we were able to quickly unload onto the belt and have the cashier easily reload our items without having to mess around with the bag carousel, saving us both time. Putting them back in the car and pulling them out at home took under 10 seconds each, no longer needing to bend back and forth to move a pile of grocery bags. Added bonus, the ride home was nice and quiet without things clanking and sliding around in the back.

You can add a flashlight, thumb drive, screwdriver, whatever you need. What a great gift for a guy – they LOVE to show off fun gadgets like this to their friends!
What people are saying about the Keyport:
