This hanging organizer features transparent 40 pockets on both sides, and the soft, clear PEVA protects the accessories from nicks and scratches. The organizer has smaller pockets on the top to hold small and light weight items like earrings or clips, and larger pockets at the bottom can hold little big or slightly heavy items like necklaces, hand mirrors, hair accessories etc. One side of the organizer also has horizontal pockets which can easily accommodate items like sunglasses, watches etc. With a built-in hanger and sleek looks, this organizer can easily slip into any closet or can be hung on any door or clothes hook as per choice.

However, this handy organizer is not very durable if loaded with heavy or bulky items. It is necessary to balance weight with items otherwise the average quality hanger material snaps and slips off easily. It is observed that the organizer’s hook/hanger part can sag due to its limited strength and the plastic cover of the pockets rips off easily if stuffed with bulky items.

Overall, the Household Essentials 80-Pocket Hanging Jewelry and Accessories Organizer is an efficient and tidy way to get rid of cluttered accessories boxes.

PowerShot SX260HS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for taking beautiful pictures.  A high-Speed Burst HQ allows for continuous capture at a maximum of 10 frames while maintaining superb image quality and Super Slow Motion movie records video at high speeds to allow playback in slow motion. You can play back videos on an HDTV via the HDMI output or watch on 3.0-inch TFT Color LCD with wide viewing angle on the back of camera.

A lot of users do not like the placement of pop-out flash on the camera since it hits the finger and new people put their finger on top while taking pictures. It also blurs pictures many times when the subject is in motion. The battery life is mediocre especially when the GPS logger is on.

Review Summary

The Yard Butler GKS-2 Garden Kneeler and Seat is a godsend for people who have knee and back problems. This ergonomic product prevents sore knees typically caused by kneeling on the ground, and back pain caused by stooping and bending. With this Yard Butler, you actually get two products for the price of one...a kneeler with cushioned padding to protect your joints from the abrasive ground and when flipped over, a comfortable seat to rest your bottom on after all that hard work!
It can also be used outdoors for gardening or indoors for doing household chores (no more kneeling on the floor to scrub your bathtub.) And when you are done with your toils, you can fold it flat to fit into a really narrow space! This sturdy and portable device also has handles on the sides that make getting up and down easier.

Review Summary

The Grand Trunk Ultra Light Hammock is great for the backyard, picnics, hiking and backpacking. It is easy to set up and carry. It packs down to a very small size into its own side pocket that can also be used to hold drinks and other things when using the hammock. This hammock is rot and mildew resistant and dries very quickly. It is well built and attractive in looks.

Some reviewers do not like the fact it does not come with tree straps.

Overall, Grand Trunk Ultra Light Hammock is an inexpensive, light weight and sturdy hammock and can make a great addition to home patio or to a camping trip.
