Shopping Gadgets Review and Giveaway

I love to shop!  

Whether it be for clothing, shoes, household items, or groceries.  I even love to shop at thrift shops, and junk stores.  But the one thing I hate about shopping is trying to keep my coupons organized, and not waste any of my precious time while in the store.  And what to do with everything you need when you shop.  Then what to do with my coupons that I want to cash in and not forgetting about them.  What is a person supposed to do?


Well, I will tell you.

You need to check out Mom Concepts!    They have a Koala Pouch ($14.95 at www.momcepts.com) that is the perfect shopping organizer that you can take with you to the store, and attach it right to your shopping cart.

It has a great design with awesome features:
  • a dedicated pocket with index cards to keep coupons and shopping list organized
  • a roomy pocket on the front for easy access to your cell phone
  • a zipper pocket on the back that includes two re-usable compact shopping bags, so you will never forget them again!
  • a pen/pencil holder
  • and enough space to carry all the items you need (List Caddy, Koalabiner, keys, money, debit/credit card) so that you can leave your purse at home or in the car

Then, there is a multi-use List Caddy ($1.99 at www.momcepts.com) that really comes in very handy.  It snaps right onto your shopping cart handle and holds your pen/pencil, along with shopping list.  Many times I have forgotten to use my coupons once I pulled them from my organizer because I had no designated place to put them, and they would end up in my pocket.  I would never remember them until it was too late (usually I would find them in the washer after doing laundry.)  Now I place them in the List Caddy clip until I get to the register.  And now I get to save those $$  from the coupons that I spent time clipping.

And if you check out the Momcepts.com website, you will find some fun and unique ways to you the List Caddy.  Hmmm, wonder if any of use can come up with some more unique ways to utilize this cool tool.  Oh, and the List Caddy comes in many fun colors too!  I have to get several of the purple ones.

And if you are like me, and like to have your purse with you when you shop, you need the Koalabiner Purse Hanger ($4.95 at www.momcepts.com).  Not only does my purse take up space in my shopping cart (I use a rather large purse), now my bread doesn't get smashed, and small items don't get lost below my purse.  Boy is that embarrassing when I have paid for all of  my items, grab my purse to leave and there before us are one or two small items sitting there in the cart.  YIKES!  I get the feeling that they think I am trying to steal them.  I am NOT!!!  No longer do I have to worry about that horrible feeling.

Now I can hang my purse from my shopping cart using the great Koalabiner.  My bread is never mashed from the weight of my purse, items don't get hidden below it, and no one can easily steal my purse.  Which has happened to my Niece.  So many of us plop our purses in the child seat area, and don't give it another thought while shopping.  We leave our carts for a second while grabbing something from a shelve.  But doing that makes it very easy for someone to grab our purses and run.  And if you have a diaper bag, because you have your child with you, the Koalabiner will hold it as well.

The Koalabiner is cute with its koala bear shape that I have even wore it as a bracelet until I got inside the store.  Or I store it on one of my purse handles, so that it is handy to use.  It also comes in handy to attach several bags of groceries (or other purchases) together so they don't spill out before you get home.  No longer do I have to tie each plastic bag shut and struggle to un-knot them or end up cutting them open.  The Koalabiner also comes in handy to use with a baby stroller, so you can attach your diaper bag or purse right to the handle.
