Phone Holder for Car

Search_wAfter my husband bought new Samsung Edge our old holder didn’t fit so he found this quite nice mount that fits most of similar sized phones. Its really good when we travel with car and need to use  navigation. My husband prefers the once which can be attached to the grid rather then the once that are placed on the window.

Item: the holder is made out of 3 main pieces – main holder with soft parts to put the phone in and button in the back to make sides squeeze the phone, to release you have to push the button on the side, the spring that is attached to the grid, the holder that keeps the main part stable and pressed against the wall near the grid.

20161018_202358It is really steady and holds the phone really tight. the soft parts keeps the phone from scratching. We used it a lot of times and t was a part of our travel bag for car for quite some time, but it takes a bit too much space – now my husband uses an alternative, smaller one.

Reality gets +1 only for the size, but Ebay gets +1 for stability, +1 soft parts, +1 easy to use and +1 for fits more than one size phone.

Nail File

Search_wLats Christmas I figured I’d give nail files for all the girls of the family. I like giving something useful and nail file in a purse is always useful. I figured I will try to order some at ebay and this was with a nice box.

Item: Its cute with flowers, has a box to hold it in, but its not good as a nail file – the texture of it is wrong. I have other nail files I bought locally in a shop and its way better though looks the same. I still used though – I put in one of my extra purses that I take on the night out.

I can only give +1 for cute design and +1 for the box, but everything else is a mess.

Battery for TLink

Search_wWhen we where traveling around Japan we had a rented wifi router that we took everywhere. It was great – google maps whenever we needed. So we decided to buy one of these devices that you can put a SIM card in and have a mobile data shared with other devices like a router. We bought it but not everywhere there are outlets to charge when you travel so an extra battery is a plus.

Small Hangers

Search_wFor some time I had an idea of dedicating one shelf of our closed (in my husband’s side of course) to hand my bras as in a shop – on hangers. They take a lot of space in my undies drawer and I don’t like to squish them as they deform. I also had an extra slideble hangers holder for closet which was just perfect for this purpose.

Item: the quality was acceptable though the clips that should hold things looked like they are going to break.  But of this day they are fine so I guess its just the look. So now I have a nice slide in hanger holder.

Cat Pouch Case for iPhone 7 (Samsung Alfa)

Item: At first it was a bit stiff so the phone didn’t slide in really easy, but that changed after few days of usage. I upgraded the case with a Pinky so it would be more fun to use and as my husband thought it would really be fun to give me pink iPhone (somehow all other colors are not woman-ish enough for him). All in all I like it and it fit my Alfa as well, but I eventually found my Owl case so I just used that till I got my new phone.

Ebay gets all the point here – fast delivery, cute design, fits both my Alfa and iPhone, upgradable with pinky and I love kitties.

Item: Size is good, is slim and sticks not bad, but hole for camera is mismatched – its placed in the middle while its actually on the side. Though it eventually got two bobbles when my husband put it on, but that’s probably not the fault of the film.

Orange circle is film’s hole for camera, green circle is the actual camera.

Ebay +1 for fit, +1 for lasting quite long, +1 just because… Reality +1 for the wrong place and +1 for bubbles.

S Shaped Hooks

Search_wI think every one has some kitchen tools that just lie there in some drawer. Mine where stuck in few big cups. I disliked this and wanted to hang them on a wall so I bought a stick that can be placed on wall from IKEA. But hooks cost fortune there (like most of things) so I decided to order few in Ebay.

Item: Hooks are nice and fit my “stick on the wall” really well. Ends of the hooks’ are sealed so they are not sharp.

20160916_201513

But unfortunately I got only 8 of them instead of 10. But I wrote a letter to the seller about it and we agreed that I will order one more pack (it was way not enough for my tools) and he/she will drop extra two in the pack that are missing.

Ebay +1 for ends, +1 for price, +1 for seller communication, +1 for fit and being useful. Reality gets +1 for 2 missing pieces.
