SteriShoe Review and Giveaway

As some of you may know, my husband is a boot salesman. Not only does he sell them, but he is obsessed with them. He knows just about everything there is to know about boots and the companies that he sells for, but it’s more than just the knowledge. He also owns about 15 pairs of boots (does not include sandals)! He is very obsessed with keeping his shoes as clean and neat as possible, they even have their own shelf! When I was told I had the chance to host a SteriShoe Review and giveaway I was very excited!

SteriShoe Review So what is SteriShoe? SteriShoe is a product that sterilizes the insides of your shoes using Germicidal Ultraviolet Light (UVC). It kills 99.9% of organisms that cause Foot Odor, Athletes Foot, and Toe Nail Fungus! It is accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association, is safe and easy to use, and is completely chemical and drug free! When I told my husband this, he told me that it couldn’t be true and he just did not understand how it could possibly work. I explained to him that UV Light has a lot of benefits and while it may not seem possible we might as well try it and see how it goes.

SteriShoe Review

We received the SteriShoe extremely fast and while my husband was still a little hesitant, I couldn’t wait to try it! I ripped it out of the box, read the directions/information booklet, and went on a search to find the stinkiest shoes I can find! Since my husband has so many shoes none of them were as smelly as my brother-in-law’s shoes! I immediately put the SteriShoe to work!

The SteriShoe process itself takes about 45 minutes, but setting it up took about 2 minutes so it was a fair trade. After the 45 minutes I took the shoes out of the bag and sniffed them. They were so smelly before that they still had a slight smell so I decided that I would turn in on for another run while I was at work. I get a call a couple hours later from my husband saying that he took the shoes out and can’t smell anything. He kept asking if the shoes were smelly when I put them in the bag or if I did something funny to them, so I told him to try it out himself.

SteriShoe Review

When I came home he had already used the SteriShoe on multiple pairs of shoes and kept freaking out because he could not believe that it was working on all his different shoes. He was hooked. He decided to take it to work to talk to some of his co-workers to see if they had ever heard of such a thing. His boss said that he had seen similar products at trade shows, but had never seen one with such a great design and one that actually worked. They are even thinking about adding the SteriShoe to their inventory!

SteriShoe is not only great for the average shoe-wearer, but is great for those with diabetes. Diabetes often causes poor blood circulation which can lead to loss of sensation. Pain tells our bodies that something is wrong, but when we cannot feel pain, an untreated blister or a sore can develop into a foot ulcer. When left untreated, a diabetic foot ulcer can result in an amputation, and there are approximately 86,000 diabetic related amputations annually. So keeping your shoes clean is a must and this is an easy way to do it!

You can find SteriShoe on their website here.

Trade in your old movies, cd’s and games with MusicMagpie!

One thing that I have an abundance of in my house is movies. I used to be a manager at BlockBuster and started a collection of all kinds of movies. At one point I owned over 300 movies which made me realize that they were really not worth the amount of space they were taking up.
Sure I love the fact that everyone wants to come to my house a borrow movies, but I hate the fact that a lot of them don’t come back, or even sometimes come back destroyed. Right now they are all just sitting next to the tv like a huge eye sore. My husband and I have been talking about selling them, but we don’t have the time to deal with sites like ebay, or craigslist. Especially with that many movies we would have to figure out if any are worth more than the other ones, or if maybe we should just sell them as a whole. This is where MusicMagpie comes in.
MusicMagpie gives you the chance to get rid of all of your unwanted lonely movies. They make it super easy to find out how much your movies are worth by just entering in the barcode from the back of the case. Of course you won’t be getting your money back on each DVD, but they do have good prices to buy back your movies. They also offer free shipping, which is great because all of the stores that offer to buy your stuff doesn’t give you free gas to drive to their store. I especially love this because we live at least 30 minutes from any of the stores that would buy them back and that’s if they will even take the movies that we have.
Another great thing about Music Magpie is that they also have an apps for your phone. Since working at BlockBuster I know how annoying it can be to sit at a computer and enter barcodes all day. Which if you have a ton of movies you might just have to do that. With the app you can take pictures of the barcodes instead of entering them in by hand. I love that they have thought of just about everything to make your experience with them pleasant.
What are you waiting for? Trade in your clutter for some cash!

NetTalk Duo Review and Giveaway **Closed**

Now that everyone has cell phones, not many of us have home phones any more. But for those of us that cannot afford a fancy cell phone, or don’t want to sell our soul for a mobile contract, or even for those of us that have a business that needs a separate business line, we still need a home phone for some reason or another and don’t want to pay the high prices of having a home phone. Where I live we only have a limited number of choices for any type of entertainment service. Until recently we could only get one Internet company that was not so great, one telephone company that was expensive, and our only television option was satellite. Recently we have had access to a better company, but in order to use their phone or television services we have to sign a contract. Living in an apartment with a six month lease, and signing a 2 year contract for television just does not scream “good idea” to me. This next product gives you the option of having a telephone, without the contract, and without the high price.
I’m sure you have heard of the Magic Jack, or you have at least heard of a similar product before, right? Well NetTALK has come up with something similar, but much better then the Magic Jack. My only computer happens to be a laptop, so having a phone pretty much permanently connected to my computer, like the Magic Jack, really is not an option for me. Which is why the NetTALK Duo is such a great product. The NetTALK Duo can connect to your wifi, so you don’t need to have it plugged into your computer.
While the set up process was relatively easy, I think that it could be made a little easier with possibly a set up disk or something similar. The directions seemed simple enough, but when I started to actually try to complete them things got a little harder. First, I had to find a place that I could sit down with my computer, my phone, and of course the Duo so that I could concentrate on getting it set up. The software can take some time to download, and when it comes to downloads on the computer I can be very impatient. After the software download is complete you have to fill out your information, and make an account. Which was also simple, but took some time. Finally I was able to unplug the Duo and the phone and put them where I wanted them to stay. I was yet again left sitting next to the computer waiting for something to happen. Right when I was about to start all over, the phone rang letting me know that it was working.
One major issue that I have run into while using my Duo, is that periodically it will just stop working and I will have to re-enter my IP address into the program on my computer. The Duo does not give me any warning that this has happened, and the only way I can find out if it has happened is to try to make a call. If my call goes through, great! If it does not ring, then I have to re-enter my IP address again. I have made it a habit to check my phone every morning just to make sure that it is working, which generally it is, but it is not fun to worry about whether or not I missed a call in the process.
As with any online communication, talking on the phone can be a little sketchy. Unless you have a very fast, reliable Internet connection that never fails you, your phone may be a little staticy from time to time. Our Internet runs at approximately 10 Mbps but can jump anywhere from 7-15 Mbps at any given time. We not only run this phone off of our connection, but we also run my computer, and our Playstation, which is either being used to play games online, or to watch television shows on Hulu. So by the time we added the phone, there wasn’t very much bandwidth left to begin with. Because of this our phone will often cut out, or will be very staticy. When we are only using the phone, it seems to work pretty well, and doesn’t cut out as often.
Even with the few problems it does have, I still love my Duo. I don’t have to worry about contracts, or my phone being shut off because of a late bill.
NetTALK also just came out with an app for your smart phone that allows you to have free calling to the US and Canada, without using up all your minutes. They currently have apps for both Android enable phones and the iPhone.
You can find the NetTALK Duo at your local Target store!
