Would you like to master the art of making homemade gravy without using any drippings? Everybody knows that gravy is not the easiest thing to make. Sometimes it's too lumpy or too watery or just lacks flavor. Well, my recipe is very simple and doesn't take long to make.
Come along with me as I thrift every Goodwill in Connecticut. This is Episode 2 and I took a little trip to a relatively new Goodwill store in Oxford, CT. Clean store with great thrifting opportunities!

On the surface, the Greadio AM/FM radio looks like a cute cell phone or walkie-talkie. It is battery operated and USB charged. A USB charger is included in the purchase. It has programmable stations and an alarm. The tuning buttons are clearly marked for volume, channel selections, alarm, etc. There's also a plug for earphones. The radio's bright digital display is so cool!
The stations come in loud and clear. This radio reminds me of a simpler time. It's less distracting than TV or having a cell phone. I think it would make a nice gift. I also think it could come in handy on those outdoor camping trips where there's a weak cell phone signal.
You can find the Greadio radio on Amazon for less than $30.
Do you remember the old transistor radios with the 9V batteries?
I finally replaced the 20 year-old fluorescent light fixture in my kitchen. It worked fine, but the rectangular plastic globe was basically a trap for insects and had been cracked in several spots over the years during cleaning. It was time for a change.
I found the Klaimbmo Black Farmhouse Chandelier on Amazon. I know it's described as Farmhouse, but don't be fooled by that description. If anything, it's more of a Modern Farmhouse style. It's quite stylish!
I love the color of the black metal frame! It's sturdier than it looks. Assembly was relatively easy. It was simply a matter of aligning screws with pre-fabbed holes. All the parts were accounted for and fit perfectly during installation. It uses three 60 watt light bulbs (not included) which is more than enough light for the area in my kitchen.
The instruction sheet included illustrations and written step-by-step directions on how to safely wire the electric fixture.
What a nice upgrade for my kitchen! I think it would also work nicely in the dining room or entry way. I highly recommend this light fixture.
Are you looking for a good sleep mask that doesn't smash your eyes or damage your lashes while you sleep? I think I have the answer - Manta Sleep Mask.
If you're like me, you need a completely dark bedroom in order to fall asleep. I often use a sleep mask to make sure I get a true darkened environment when I go to bed. But, not all sleep masks are equal.
One of the drawbacks of traditional sleep masks is that they're flat. This puts pressure your eyelids and eyelashes. The elastic headband is often too tight or too loose. Sometimes I'd find myself adjusting and re-adjusting my mask all during the night, which as you can imagine, does not make for a restful night's sleep.
The Manta Sleep Mask is different. Imagine a sleep mask that's 1) covered in soft fabric, 2) has straps that adjust to fit your exact head measurements and 3) blocks out light. My favorite thing about the Manta Sleep Mask is their unique cushioned eye cups. Each eye is encircled with cushiony softness so there's zero pressure on your lashes or eyelids. How cool is that!
I have to tell you that the mask is soft, comfortable and provides a darkened atmosphere, which I need so much. Bonus: It does not leave marks on my face!
It's a win for me! I hope you'll try it!
