Need Water Balloons Fast?

Updated on February 10, 2018

Zuru Bunch O Balloons

Have you ever filled water balloons? If you have, you know what a disaster it can be and you also know how much time can be wasted trying to put together a simple fun activity. Recently, at an elementary school I visited, the Zuru Bunch O Balloons were used to fill hundreds of balloons for an end-of-school outdoor water activity for the entire school. No one wanted the task, but the gym teacher stepped up and volunteered. She was skeptical when seeing the strange looking balloon contraption. She was amazed at how easy and fast it was to fill these water balloons! So, don't worry anymore about the wasted time of filling and tying countless individual balloons, Bunch O Balloons takes all the time-wasting of preparing for a water balloon activity away. Now you can just enjoy the fun! All you need to do is secure the pre-packaged attachment to a hose and soon you'll have 100 water balloons ready to use.

Consumers suggest using them within a few hours of filling them, as they will shrink over a period of time. The package comes with 100 balloons. There are 3 Assorted Colors but the colors may vary.

Some comments left on Amazon that I found helpful:

"I will definitely buy this brand in the future. My kids loved filling them up and playing with them. They are pretty cool!"

"We found them at Toys R Us, but we got a couple of the last packages (personal purchase). Next time we will order them on Amazon because these were hard to find (Toys R Us was the THIRD store we went to looking for them, because they are selling out all over the place). Thank goodness for Prime free 2 day shipping!"

Garmin nüvi 2597LMT 5-Inch Portable Bluetooth Vehicle GPS with Lifetime Maps and Traffic

Installing a GPS in my car only a few years ago was the best thing I had done for myself ever in regards to saving time. After using it for only a short while, I honestly didn't know how I had functioned without out it before. It was nothing short of amazing and I made sure I always had it on and still do. Not only do I use it for finding directions to different places, I use it daily to determine my arrival time at my destination. It has been a huge time saver when looking for restaurants in areas I am completely unfamiliar with. I have also used it frequently to find local schools, banks, libraries and post offices. I found it so useful that I wanted both my mother and father to have one, so I boutht them each a new GPS as a gift!

No wonder the Garmin nüvi 2597LMT 5-Inch Portable Bluetooth is a bestseller with over 4,000 purchasers leaving comments and a4starrating. This GPS is packed with updated features. It is easy-to-use with dual orientation and a touchscreen interface. Fortunately, the traffic feature does not require a subscription and there are no additional fees for this feature. This GPS uses Garmin Real Directions with a Garmin Real Voice guide using recognizable buildings and landmarks. PhotoReal and Bird's Eye junction views offer detailed images of junctions along your route which can ease the stress of merging on or off a roadway. I love the Up Ahead displays which shows nearby information for services including restaurants, stores, hospitals and fuel alongside your map and updates as you drive your route. "Smartphone Link is a free mobile app that connects your nüvi with your iPhone® or Android(TM) smartphone. When paired, your nüvi can use your phone's existing data plan to share information - such as where you parked, POIs and your destination." according to the manufacturer.




Conair Cuisinart Smart Stick 200 Watt 2 Speed Hand Blender

Time-saving in every way, the Conair Cuisinart Smart Stick will be your go-to tool in the kitchen. No more looking for the pieces that fit into your bulky mixer. No more pulling the pieces apart, cleaning them and then hoping they find their way back to the place you keep them. Because of the Smart Sticks convenient size and ease of use, you will be pulling it out for those small jobs that in the past you just used a whisk for. Easy to use when blending cold drinks, hot soups, scrambled eggs, or pancake batter. In addition, it is comfortable to hold and the blending shaft and beaker are dishwasher safe.

The Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender comes in an elegant brushed chrome or choose from a variety of beautiful bold colors such as red, orange and lime green. The powerful 200 watt motor, and the easy-to-use “stick” design allow you blend in whatever container you are using whether it is a bowl, pitcher or pan. It has two speeds to choose from depending on the task. The best part is that the cleanup is quick and easy.

Here are the features as listed by the manufacturer:

  • 2 speeds (low and high) for all your blending tasks
  • 200 watt motor handles more blending tasks
  • Stick design reaches into pots, pitchers, and bowls to extend blending options, Dishwasher-safe blending shaft and beaker make cleanup effortless
  • Ergonomically designed grip offers comfortable hold and more control while blending
  • Operates with a one-touch control for easy, one-touch blending

One user commented that while mixing, the two-speed operation was very handy. When making soups, most of the job could be done on low speed, even with chunky vegetables. She found it easy to control how thick the final product was which has always been a problem for me when using my mixer which instantly blends everything to mush.

With almost 5 stars and close to 4,000 comments, you really can't go wrong.
