Tons of cool deals on Amazon today. I thought I would show you a few of them.
Let's start with Amazon Show. Not the expensive one, the DIY Show!
Fire Tablet with Alexa - $49.99 - http://amzn.to/2xJMvcS
Tablet Stand $9.59 - http://amzn.to/2wGlOcf
JBL Bluetooth Speaker - http://amzn.to/2vGGOem
I'm currently trying to think of ways to use the battery operated LED strings and who can't use a bluetooth headset. I have two here for you. Read up on them.
Yes, I think the wall mounted hand gets thing could be handy in the house. Where everyone comes in right? Garage?
And lastly, I love this set of battery operated yard tools. http://amzn.to/2xJP2DU. It's not gas powered backpack kind of power but it's VERY handy. I have one of the little blowers and LOVE it. You can grab it real quick and swoosh away anything.
The batteries go into a ton of other devices too. Take a look!
