What is one of the most useful (non-electronic) items you own?


Aside from your computer, smart phone, etc., what item do you have that you really appreciate and wouldn't give up? Just this morning, I wanted to get one last day of enjoyment from the gladiola bouquet I had purchased last week. A 6" vase I bought years ago, from where-I-don't-know, has a metal "cap" with holes in to arrange flowers. I knew my little glass vase was in a cabinet in our 400 ft. RV where we live and realized it is one of the few items, after downsizing a house full of goods, that I have kept. Do you have a favorite useful item that you would never give up? (besides spouses)

    Christin. I'm learning about all new gadgets here! I just googled it. Cool! I have to use the peeler from IKEA that has the blade across the top. It works best for left handers. Cheers, Billie

    GREAT IDEA! Gotta look iI up! Don't you just appreciate the people who created these things? LOVE my left-handed corkscrew from the left-handed store in San Fran. It's useful for me + I do enjoy watching my right-handed friends use it (tee hee)

    Very cute! So glad you wrote. I noticed your hub name before, but didn't have a chance to look at your website. We're redoing our old website where I created kid's online learning games (MLK "Dream Speech" fill in the blanks, Gettysburg Address, etc

    beautiful picture connorj. Can you describe the leash. I tried to look it up not knowing that "Belgian Malinois" was a breed and not a collar. I have a little guy named Scooter who is barking for his last treet of the day as I type! Cheers and thanks

    Is the potato masher the kind that has metal going back and forth like a wave? My mom used to have one and I did too, but I must have lost it along the way. Zinc lids? We live in our RV full time, Penny G. We stay put here in Southern CA.

    That peeler IS niffy. Glad you posted a link. I think hubpage writers r often so overly cautious abt posting links that it's counter productive. PS .The "frog" is metal and sits ON top of that little vase like a cover with holes. Genius I think!

    I'm impressed that you write full-length books in longhand! My handwriting has deteriorated (arthritis) so much that I can barely read my signature any more! Kudos to you, Sheila!
