Amazon has just announced a new wifi only Kindle that will be released August 27th. The new Kindle will come in Graphite black and is smaller than the previous model. The price of just $139.00 makes this a great impulse purchase.

I recently saw some Skullcandy headphones at TJ Maxx and thought I give them a try. At my local Meijer I saw these headphones for $49.95 but TJ Maxx had them for around $35 plus tax.
The Hesh are full size cans with many different designs. The ones I purchase were Black/white with various graphics on it. Skullcandy are known for stylish designs and they don't disappoint here. The headphones fit snug on my head and are adjustable to fit most head sizes. The headband is wrapped in leather as well as the ear cups. The sides are made of plastic so there is a question if the plastic frame will last.
Skullcandy is not known for best quality of sound but they are fine for most. I prefer to wear full size headphones over earphones when I am at home. And the Skullcandy sound better than any of the earphones I own. The bass on these headphones are good without any distortion at higher volumes.
Overall these are great sounding headphones but I worry about build quality. I have heard a lot of reviews saying that these cans don't last long and have to be RMA. I have only had this headphone for a couple of weeks so only time will tell.

I got sick of buying alkaline batteries that died real quick. So I went ahead and bought a rechargeable AA kit. The Energizer charger comes with two rechargeable AA batteries for the price of under $10.
The charge can hold 4 AAA batteries or 4AA batteries. You must put them in pairs for the light to turn on. The major negative about this charger is that it does not have automatic shut off. The manual gives you basic times to charge the batteries.
Overall this cheap charger will serve its purpose. If you want a basic kit for rechargeable batteries and charger then this is it. And under $10 I highly recommend this charger/battery pack.

Maxam® Lockback Pocket Knife with 420 Surgical Stainless Steel Honed Blade and Durable LeymarTM Handle Review
The Maxam pocket knife is a mini keychain knife. The knife is pretty decent for the low cost price. I wouldn't use it for anything other than say opening boxes but it does that rather well. At the end of the day it's cheap and easy to carry on a keychain.

We have all seen the ShamWow on TV, well DollarTree offers a similar product called the Wow!. The Wow! Shammy costs only $1 plus tax. It is a large fabric cloth in orange that can absorbed water like the ShamWow.
Just as advertised it absorbs liquid just like the original ShamWow. My problem with the Wow! Shammy was that when I clean off my car dashboard it left lint all over. This is the main reason I could not recommend it. I'd say your better off with a regular towel that the Wow! Shammy.
