    We hired a lawn crew a few years ago. That made pesky lawn maintenance a lot easier!! :D

    Rechargeable screwdriver and drill. No more electrical cords to mess with. Also have "ratchet" type closed-end wrenches. Much easier than taking the open-end wrench off of a bolt every time to loosen or tighten a bolt.

    The old Potato Peeler! No more wasting the potato peeling with a paring knife.

    Cordless tools are quite handy for sure. I've never cared much for a potato peeler, though. My preference is a good paring knife, or to just scrub potatoes and leave the skin on.

    I wish someone would invent a self cleaning microwave.

    That's what I do when I make my potatoes for breakfast. Just scrub and leave skin on.

    I've always liked potato skins. When I make homemade french fries I like the crispy skin.

    I buy the frozen kind you put in the oven. They are pre-peeled. :D

    The skins from a baked potato are one of my faves.

    I like a little potato skin with my butter. :D (No such thing as "too much butter!!")

    I think this is a cool gadget. Could've really come in handy during my gin and tonic years.

    I have a wooden back scratcher that I use also for reaching on top shelf for things. Or under things...or to retrieve a bra that fell between the wall and a cedar chest.
    For 99 cents it was worth every penny:p
