Are Cervical Pillows Worth The Hype? Memory Foam Cervical Pillow Review

Is getting a good night's sleep becoming a pain in the neck? Maybe you just need to change your pillow. Have you heard of a cervical pillow?

Like most people, my body needs to be in a certain position to get maximum sleep. I'm basically a left-side sleeper. That's my optimum position. But I usually have to prop up several pillows to get my arms situated and my neck positioned just right if I expect to get that deep sleep. 

Want to elevate your sleep game?

Let's discuss my new Wellnestro memory foam cervical pillow from Amazon. What does it do? The sellers tout the benefits of the pillow by saying that it supports your cervical alignment and helps you find that comfy sleeping position. The pillow has a deep curve that cradles your head in comfort whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach.  And there's even a place to rest your arm. I'm a fan of that!

The pillowcase, which is machine washable in cold water, is so soft and cushiony! And the pillow comes with its own bag for easy storage. It's backed by a 2-year warranty. I like that!


I tried my cervical pillow for the first time last night and found it to be quite comfortable.  
The ergonomic neck support is a plus!  The way the pillow is engineered provided support for my head, but it was surprisingly soft at the same time. More importantly, I didn't feel like I was straining my neck or like I was in an awkward position.  

Overall, the pillow is definitely a good buy for the price.  I mean, what price would you pay for a good night's sleep?

Tabletop Fire Bowl Using Bio-Ethanol Fuel


Do you like toasted marshmallows?  I toasted marshmallows for the first time yesterday. As a child, I was never a fan of this treat.  

But I wanted to try out my new tabletop fire bowl, so I thought I'd venture outdoors and give this toasted marshmallow thing a try.

This tabletop fire bowl was an Amazon purchase. It was so simple to set up. No tools  required. Seriously, not even a screwdriver! It comes with everything you need to get your intimate groove on, except heating fuel and a lighter. 

I've seen similar units at restaurants and other outdoor eateries. It adds a real classy touch to your dining experience. 

As I mentioned, this unit was purchased from the internet. It comes with 1) a fuel can (tray), 2) protective glass panes to keep the flames under control and 3) a cover to extinguish the flames. To operate, you will need to order:

  1. Ventless/Odorless Bio-Ethanol Fuel
  2. Butane Lighter (Extended style)


Once lit, the flame should last about an 1.5 hours. That's all there is to it! Please read the safety precautions before using this product or any fuel burning apparatus.  Although the instructions state that the unit can be used indoors and outdoors, I'm a little afraid of open fires, so you'll only find me using my tabletop fire bowl outdoors.  I'm just sayin'.


And, by the way, the toasted marshmallows turned out great! But I'm still not a fan!

Dollar Tree Cleaning Hack For Scuff Marks on Walls


I have a quick Dollar Tree hack! You know those scuff marks that we get on the walls all around our home? Well, I tried a Dollar Tree product to see if it would get rid of those scuffs.

Here's what happened. I bought the 2-IN-1 QUICK ERASER from Dollar Tree. It's a two-pack sponge that's supposed to be great on tough jobs. Each 5" sponge is about 1" thick with a white scrubbing side and a softer blue side.

                                          

I didn't expect it to work, so I was pleasantly surprised when it did. 

I tried it out on a few scuff marks on my kitchen walls. After wetting the sponge with water, I gave each scuff mark and few rubs with the white side of the sponge. The scuff marks  disappeared! I wiped the area with a dry cloth and that was that. Amazing!

But here's the hack. Cut your sponge into smaller rectangle pieces and only use what you need. Why waste a whole sponge for a small job, right?

Good one, Dollar Tree!



Closet Clean-out Tips



 I am by no means a professional organizer, but I sometimes play one on social media. But seriously, let's talk about our overstuffed closets and ways to pare down.

I like to go through my closets a few times a year and weed out clothing that no longer fits or that I haven't worn recently. I also like to look around my home and do the same thing.

Then I consciously decide what I want to do with the weeded out pieces. As for clothing, I have to really convince myself to part ways with certain pieces. 


As I touch each item, I think about how I wore it, how it made me feel, where I wore it last and the reaction from people who saw me wearing it. I have to admit, I get a little melancholy. It's definitely a psychological tug of war! 

Can you relate?

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF AS YOU DECLUTTER

So, are you in the middle of cleaning out your closets or just thinking about it?   Are you wrestling with yourself about letting go of things? I hear ya! 

You can expedite your closet clean-out process if you ask yourself a few questions along the way. Here are the questions I grappled with:

  1. Does this still fit?
  2.  Is it still my style? 
  3. Is it damaged or even wearable? 
  4. Will I ever wear it again? 
  5. Can someone else use it? 
  6. Should I sell it, donate or discard it? 

Asking yourself these questions while you're going through your closets should add a little structure to your process and help you make it to the end. 

I hope this helps!
