In this day and age where everyone and everything is loud and in your face, there are times that I choose to hear ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I find these are unparalleled for afternoon naps. My house is fairly close to the road, not a busy road, but located on a steep hill where any car must accelerate to the max just to get up the dang thing. And of course, I'd be a light sleeper.

Them there earplugs are what we call "gorilla nipples" where I work

I like my Speedo sandals. When I'm too lazy to put on shoes for my walks, i though on those and head out. Might not work for me in the winter time. Guess I'll find out though.

Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Tub/Shower Cleaner.

It really, really does work. I cleaned my fiberglass shower and glass doors until they shown and then installed the automatic cleaning unit. After every shower I push the button, close the glass doors, and let it spray down the shower. I have not lifted a finger to clean the shower for 3 months and everything is still squeaky clean, HONEST. This is a gotta have.

I will also cast my vote in for Magic Eraser and Tide Pen.

Oh yeah, and my Arbonne skin care products--no mineral oil to clog the pores.

1. Starbucks - Grande Non-fat, No foam, Sugar Free Vanilla, Latte (because I'm an addict, and because it makes me laugh everytime I order it... then cry because I actually pay $4.00 for espresso drinks).

2. Tide - Stick stain remover. (It really works and is always handy for those random dribbles from soy sauce, coffee, etc.)

3. Bath & Body Works - Warm Vanilla Sugar Anti-bacterial hand soap. (smells really yummy)

4. Cetaphil - face cleanser. (Non-drying and dermatologist recommended)

5. Anything from Trader Joe's

6. Netflix -- because I never have to worry about a late fee.

7. AIRBORNE - fizzy tabs for pre-flight, and before a cold comes on. The perfect product for a germo-phobe, hypochondriac... not that I am one... okay...maybe just a little.

8. Swiffers -- because we have cats and a dog and wood floors.

9. Scent Sticks reed diffusers from Pier One - especially Biscotti scent. Great gifts and great for any room. (Just noticed that Eggalegga had these in the list above)

10. Sirius radio (My husband would say because of Howard Stern, and I'm saying because of the range of options of all kinds of music any time of day and whatever my mood).

11. Frizz Eaze - hair serum

I'm sure there's more... I'm forgetting...

Some of my faves...

Disposable contacts - after awhile, I can throw them out if they start to irritate
Dual tuner DVR - no more VCR's and juggling tapes
Netflix - no more late charges and I can return the DVD's on my schedule
Magic Eraser - great for the refrig/freezer handles that get dirty over time
Fabuloso - the lavender (purple) cleaner is terrific and smells so good
Kashi cereals - healthy and good tasting
Healthy Choice chocolate ice cream bars - low fat, low calorie, low carb, low sugar and actually taste like the real thing!
Dove moisturizing soap - doesn't dry out the skin
Cetaphil face cleanser - again, doesn't dry out your skin
Swiffers - good for wood floors
Splenda sweetener - great in coffee and in baking
Rain-X - water/rain rolls off the car windows
Cottonelle/Charmin disposable wipes - terrific after using 2-ply TP!!!!
Diet Pepsi/Diet Coke with Lime - great on its own or with Rum!
Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo - inexpensive and washes out all the hair product that can build up
Purex - hand sanitizer
Eclipse Gum - instant fresh breath and so strong it opens up your sinuses!
Crest Pro-Health toothpaste (second would be AquaFresh Extreme Clean mentioned by HDL earlier)
Aussie "Calm That Frizz" Styling Cream - great for short hair
Lab Series Maximum Comfort Shave Cream - "Contains Benzocaine to condition and comfort, and aloe and caffeine to reduce irritation"
Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer - also has an SPF 15 included
Arm & Hammer Ultra Max Antiperspirant and Deodorant - clear gel that works well

I love Trader Joe's, but they don't sell via internet and don't exist in Alaska outside of a few items in a grocery store in Homer (5-6 hours from Anchorage)

I have to add something to my previous list...

Melaluca Gel.

I've never heard of it before, but my mom buy's all MElaluca products, and.... I apparently donated quite a bit of blood to a poor starving family of mosquitos living IN MY ROOM last night... I woke up with my feet bitten so bad, I stopped counting at 20. And the bottoms of the feet too, lil buggars ..but this gel totally stopped the itching! it burned at first and felt soooo gooood then it just stopped. haha mister mosquito family you can't hurt me now, go suck on someone else's feet!
