Shipping Scales Perfect for Ebay Selling

I decided I wanted to sell some items on eBay and did not have an accurate but inexpensive scale to determine shipping costs. It is hard to find an accurate scale with weight ranges: from as small as a letter or size 4 (9.5″ x 14.5″) mailer, all the way up to a package weighing 110 pounds.

The American Weigh Scales SE-50 scale does it all! The weight is broken down into lbs and ounces and is very accurate. I love that the scale is both AC and battery operated.

Great for a Manual Pump

I got the Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump for my wife after we had our first baby to have sitting next to her my chair. She was always getting annoyed with pulling the electric double pump with it’s numerous parts and two pumps. She finds this pump much easier to operate. This pump functioned well and never squeaked as some stated. All in all, though, for the price, it’s worth it for times when I don’t want to or it’s not practical to carry around the electric pump.

A Great Internal Frame Backpack

I purchased the High Sierra Tech Series 59404 bag at a very good price and it was worth every penny! Has plenty of pockets, large bottom spot for sleeping bag and lots of room for gear. This backpack holds everything I think I might possibly need and has room to spare! There are plenty of straps and bindings on the outside of the bag to hang gear if you somehow run out of room.

Perfect Portable Oil filled Heater

Bought the Optimus H-6010 Portable Oil Filled Radiator to lower my propane bills. Works nicely. Definitely a good trade off on electric bill to propane bill. I now have two of these, and they do a tremendous job of heating both a large room in my basement and a walk-in closet/bathroom that for some reason never stays warm. Pretty much, this is big enough for that room you’re thinking of.

Great Electric cooler overall

I love the Coleman Coleman 62 qt. Xtreme cooler; I load it with one or two 10lb blocks of ice and two 10lb bags of ice, go out for three or four days, and I end up coming home with ice for the next trip! It is the perfect size if you want big but still want to lift it yourself. The dual handles make for easy carrying, the wheels and handle you use to pull the cooler are sturdy. The drain was one of the main reasons we chose this cooler – when you are getting a cooler this large, the drain is key because then you don’t have to try tipping over a heavy cooler.

My Sunbeam GCSBTR-100 Travel Iron

The Sunbeam GCSBTR-100 is agreat little iron. It’s small and very light so it would be easy to pack if need be. There’s no stopper for the water but since it’s so small it’s not really a problem as you’re more likely to need to refill it more often than once while you iron.

A Great Thermometer

The Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer  is a great thermometer. Better than the artery one that I could never get to work. It is fast and quick, key with a wiggly toddler. The kids don’t mind having their temp taken with it and it is very accurate.
