Gift Idea and April Christmas Prep Report

Nothing new and exciting to report on Christmas Prep this month - just plugging away, dealing with gift-giving occasions as they arise. But it is so nice to be prepared!
OXO Good Grips Silicone Sink Strainer

 I do have a cool, affordable gift idea for Mother's Day, however, if anyone is interested. My SIL found this nifty kitchen sink strainer at our local grocery store and bought one for each of us. Talk about a dream come true! Ok - maybe a sink strainer can't be quite that good but...

The basket of the strainer is silicone and flexible. So you see the little handle in the center? Well, you can actually pull the thing inside out to dump it. Makes it easy to keep your drains and strainer clean!

Keep in mind that this is a strainer only, not a stopper! It seems the negative reviews on Amazon came from folks who thought it was a stopper, too, so don't make the mistake of thinking it will hold water - it won't. (There is a stopper by the same company that looks similar but I can't vouch for it.)

What? You say you don't consider a sink strainer a good Mother's Day present? Really? Well, not for some moms, I guess. But every mom I know would LOVE to have this - trust me. If you'd like to buy one of these nifty gadgets, check your local grocery store - that's where my SIL found ours and they were a couple dollars less than on Amazon. Now I'm off to clean the kitchen...
