a remote for my lamp - do you have a favorite gizmo or gadget?
I broke down the other week and bought a plug in thingy to plug my lamp into so it'd operate by remote. my lamp is in a weird place. only place for it in this room (I burned out one of my outlets - yikes!) with tv/satelite box and fan in on one wall and computer stuff and a/c on another left me with 1 socket way across the room. I bought a strip thing with a 15' cord to run from it but to reach the lamp I had to climb on the corner of my bed and lean over my printer. what a pain!
I had no idea if this thing would even work. I plugged it in last night and presto - no more climbing on the bed to turn my lamp on/off! what a hassle that has been. it was maybe 12.00 but sure is a big help to me. no more sleeping with the light on because I'm to tired or sore to turn it off. it's just so neat to push that remote and have the lamp go on or off.
what neat thing, item or whatever have you purchased for your home to make some chore easier?
