Most of my family lives across different states. I am the present shopper, recycled giver, and packaging czar in my household. I am 5’3″ and when I am packaging larger boxes, watching my juggle with tape, a large box, and a pair of scissors, can be quite entertaining. I was thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to review As Seen On TV’s Dispenserless Tape in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
It tells you right on the front of the roll of tape, that the roll is 55 yards long, 2″ wide and 3 mils thick. There are faint black dots all throughout the roll. These dots mark the segments. The segments are 12″ long. This means that every 12″ you can tear the tape by hand quite easily. It’s pretty much a jump for joy occasion. I cannot tell you how many times I have cut my hand open either on a pair of scissors or on the teeth side of the dispenser.
My mom, who has arthritis in her hands, and is on the weaker side, can tear this tape. This is a godsend for people with arthritis or other disabilities. My seven year old can even tear this tape. He can also wrap himself in this tape, so we will be watching him with it, lol.
When the package arrived, there was a scent from the bag. It’s just an adhesive smell that quickly fades after removing it from the shipping bag. I have asthma, and it didn’t affect me. This literally is the only negative I could find with this dispenserless tape. And that’s reaching for a negative. This tape is awesome. I honestly don’t think I can go back to the regular packing tape now. No more cut hands for this gal. I most definitely recommend this Dispenserless tape.

I am really enjoying this 6 in 1 Camping Gear Kit by InYard. I actually own a few of these pieces that come in the bag. That’s how useful and wonderful we think these items are. I already own the exact credit card tool and CRKT spork. We have different versions of all the other components too. These items are absolutely essential to any preparedness measures and camping. It’s important to be prepared for anything when camping. Especially so if you have your family with you that you are responsible for. I am just thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review this product in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. To buy this as a set is not only a smart decision but a good decision for your wallet. I know what these pieces cost separately.
This kit comes with a large, 10L waterproof storage bag. This bag is fantastic on both land and water. If you are out camping, you would want to put your personal items in this before heading out on a canoe or kayak. If this baby goes overboard, it will float. We have lost a wonderful fishing pole and expensive new reel to the waters below, lol. Now, when kayaking, we try to put rod floating devises on those too. Always make sure you rol this down and make sure there’s a tight seal. It’s really easy to do. You can fit so much in here. I like the see thru window too. It’s easier to see if water is getting in and if you forgot to put something you’ll need it there. At a camp site, when night falls, things can get a little more moist because of the temperature dip. This bag will help with that, and it well help to keep bugs off your important items. For example, you can store your matches and dry timber in this bag, so you always have a viable way to make fire.
Also in this kit, is the credit card multi tool. I love mine. My husband gave me one to carry about 4 years ago. It is in perfect condition and has come in handy more than once. It’s great for throwing in our pocket for a quick walk, small enough and handy enough to keep in your purse, like I do. This multi tool has a tooth pick, tweezers, Serrated knife which has a specific shaped wrench openings in it. These can also be used so you can tie the knife onto a piece of wood and used like a spear to acquire food, or try to defend yourself. There is a working compass, a small magnifying glass that could help with signaling, but more likely fire starting. on the side of the card, there is a small multi functional piece that pulls out. This has a can opener, a screw driver,, a razor blade. The razor blade could use some sharpening so it’s more effective. That’s not a big deal to do, and an Awl.
Also in this bag is an emergency whistle. It’s important to have a device like this both on dry land and on the water. We try to make sure we have an emergency whistle attached to our life vests. It can deter strangers from approaching, as well as animals from approaching. It’s a great universal signal for help.
We also already own a CRKT spork. These are so solid and convenient to use and carry. It comes with an included carabineer style clip. You can easily clip it your pack if you wanted to. This utensil also has some tool functions built into it. There are three hex wrenches and a bottle opener. In a pinch, you can dig with it too. It’s solidly built and should last you for years.
It’s very important to have a fire source. An emergency can happen at any time. Being able to start a fire you can then provide light, heat, a cooking source, a source for disinfecting water, and a means to keep animals at bay. Fire is also used for signaling. Included in this kit is a great sized Magnesium rod and striker. The striker even has ruler measurements on it.
There is a separate small bag in this kit than has a 30″x51″ microfiber towel/blanket in it. These absorb so much water. They are fantastic. I have another one already. These absorb water so well, that they are great to carry to the beach, lake or pool. They dry quickly and will help you to keep warm in a pinch. the included microfiber towel will also provide some ground cover for you too. I hate sitting in the dirt myself, lol. The bag can be used for other storage if needed. It is a drawstring bag. The string can be taken out in a pinch. It happens to be a piece of paracord.
The last but not least important item in this incredible kit is a Commando 360 degrees wire saw. I think it is so convenient to be able to carry something so important, but without really adding any weight to your bag or pack. You can use this to cut small branches to help set up snare traps, etc.. You can clear away small branches from your deer stand, and so and so on, lol. It is constructed out of stainless steel and has a 360 degree rotating capability.
This bag is just full of essentials every family should have on hand. I can’t state enough about preparedness. The values in this kit is wonderful and I feel comfortable in recommending it.

I am really enjoying the usefulness of Ozark Armament’s 45 Degree Offset Picatinny/Weaver Rail Mount. I absolutely love my AR, but unfortunately recently figured out that even though I am right handed, I am left eye dominant. I so wanted to use a combo of a simple red dot and iron sites. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be afforded the opportunity to review this mount in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. There’s something about just using iron sight’s that really calls to me. Until I can master my left eye, I am going to have to get a scope. With this offset rail mount, I can have both on my AR at the same time. Even if you swear by a red dot, I am a firm believer in having a back up plan. I took a photo of a stripped upper , so you can get the idea of what I am talking about. There is a simple red dot, and one iron site on the 45 degree rail mount. I just think that’s perfect! With these, it’s so easy to have both, and to have both sighted in. This 45 degree rail mount is black anodized aluminum. It’s made very well. It’s very straight forward to attach. If you can open and close a vise, then you can attach this, same principle. It has a very secure grip to. There is no movement whatsoever, even with jarring. Always check your firearm completely over before and after to make sure it’s still secure though, as with all attachments. You can use an attachment like this for more than sites. It’s quite versatile and useful. You can easily attach a laser or light . So many people are even adding a fixed knife to their AR’s. This would work for that too. This mount is so simple in design and form but has an incredible utilization factor. Many architects strive for this. I really can’t say enough about this 45 degree offset mount. It’s exactly what I needed. My husband is current military and we sat down with this piece and played with it. We both feel very comfortable in recommending this mount. Now I need to get another one for my front sight, lol.
I remember the scare a few years ago when many people’s furry family members were sickened and killed by bad dog food. From my understanding, there is another dog food scare out right now. Pets are family members. It’s as important to feed pets quality food and treats as it is our human family members. I have insane life threatening food allergies and it’s become habit to read every ingredient list. Almost everyone on our block has a dog. A really good friend up the street dog walks and sits to make ends meet. A lot of these poor doggies also have allergies. They get itchy skin, and their little hairs fall out and more. A lot of the time it’s food related. Their diets are also monitored almost as strictly as mine. These treats have a tiny ingredient list: Rice Flour, Vegetable Glycerin, Natural Meat Flavor, Caramel Color, and Garlic Juice. That is also the exact order the ingredient list is in on the bag. They are pretty much in the shape of hearts and are about the size of a quarter. I like the fact that you can see through the bag. You know what you’re getting and there should be no surprises I this bag.
My friend who dog sits said her little guys absolutely loved these treats. There were no naysayers in the group, lol. She didn’t have to worry about any of the ingredients with any of their diets. She was absolutely thrilled that I shared these her way to help her and her crew out. I was afforded the opportunity to review these Pet Healthy Holdings’ K9 Fat Free Dog Treats in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I figured what better testing site than with a large variety of pooches. These are also stated to be sodium free, cholesterol free and crunchy – dog teeth friendly. She had no concerns whatsoever about giving these to her current furry family. We both feel very comfortable in recommending them.
