          HDX box sealing tape is a value oriented choice for sealing shipping, moving, and storage cartons. Tape rolls will hold well in cold and hot humid temperatures. This 2-pack is great for refilling tape dispensers and bigger projects.

          I use a LOT of packing tape in my house. We use it for crafts, we use it for preserving jigsaw puzzles, I used it to seal flashcards for my nephews study cards. I used to buy dollar store packing tape thinking that it was all the same...it isn't. I found this out the hard way in my last major move to a new state.
          Never trust discount packing tape...
          It's a motto in my house that we ALL follow!
          This tape is NOT discount quality tape - it's wonderfully strong and very adhesive clear packing tape that can handle many tough jobs, from package mailing, to packing up boxes for relocation. It's nice strong tape!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Sturdy

          This awesome little scoop arrived just the other day! I must admit to being excited about Christmas (it arrived on the 24th), but I'm seriously excited about the upcoming spring planting season so I can try this nifty scoop out.
          First of all let me say how really well made it is! This isn't going to be falling apart or buckling under the weight of a hearty scoop of soil any time. It's solid and it shows when you have it in your hands.
          And if I need even more reason to like this item...it made in the USA!!!
          Being able to get an actual decent sized scoop of soil out of the bag this year is going to be exciting!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Strong, Vibrant Color, made in the usa!

          Who doesn't just ADORE Joanna Gaines and her hysterical hubby on Fixer Upper? I could watch them all day long. But even better than their wonderful TV show, is their ability to bring items to the consumer that actually reflect their signature style shown on that mega popular show.

          But it's the design on the paper that has me swooning. I'm a fiend for any type of roses. I will take a beautiful rose pattern pretty much any day of the week. This wallpaper has incredible muted tones of gray, while bringing out the beauty of the floral pattern. I will be using this in my ½ bathroom in the Wainscoting portion, as soon as we get the room repainted.
          I guess my only suggestion for this paper is to make sure that you buy quite a bit more for waste - the pattern doesn't repeat itself in a close enough pattern, and it looks like a LARGE amount is going to be lost when matching up the pattern.

          Pros: Easy to Install, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Well Made
          Cons: smell of vinyl, far apart pattern results in more waste

          I am a door and cabinet hardware hound. I collect knobs and hardware for my furniture refinishing projects and wooden trinket box hobby. I know when something simple like a handle, knob or hinge, is one of the fastest ways to go about a TOTALLY new and changed look.
          I'm a bit torn on this know to be honest. While it is extremely pretty, the weight is less than stellar. It feels a bit "inexpensive. Therefore, I would definitely designate this one to a rather popular category for me...the "budget friendly knob". It is indeed perfect for the consumer that needs a pretty and functional knob at a good price!
          Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish, pretty design, great price
          Cons: lightweight

          The design of Liberty's 1-1/4 in. Knob with Backplate is reminiscent of traditional 19th century Craftsman decor. This knob, paired with a bold Matte Black finish, adds a cozy warmth to your cabinetry and furniture. The old world charm of this knob easily transforms your kitchen or bathroom into a celebration of bygone times.

I definitely know when something simple like a handle, knob or hinge, can change the ENTIRE look of a item, and that it is one of the fastest ways to go about that changed look.
          I was REALLY impressed at the weight of this knob. It is substantial. This one will go a long way in changing up any drawer, door or decorative container or box. The installation process was a breeze. It is indeed a lovely knob
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, very well made

          Connect your Ring stick-up camera to an everlasting power source with this Ring solar panel. It hooks up to the Ring stick-up camera with a USB micro cable that can keep the camera charged with just a few hours of daylight. The Ring solar panel unit is weather resistant, making it suitable for most climates.

Just make sure that your solar panel is in a good location to get at least six hours of sunshine per day - the cord length that is included is more than ample (in most cases) for you to be able to most likely be able to position your camera just about anywhere you may need it.

          Answer: 
          I don't believe so. I've looked over the description and nothing in the wording nor the visuals shows them being used in an outdoor setting. However, I looked up their toll free number where you can definitely ask the company - this way they can point you in the right direction if they are not compatible for outdoor use.

          will these work with a Mesh WIFI network. The problem I have been reading about is that these lights only work on 2.4ghz and wont connect to 5 ghz. A mesh network such as netgears ORBI autoslects the fastest speed that is closest to what you are trying to connect (usually 5 ghz). If this is the case will lights conect to wifi?
