I Almost Forget

Products that are good for the (semi)disabled*:

1. CFLs-

Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs. Good for the environment, good for your wallet, but good for the semidisabled? If you're like me, and getting on a stepladder to change a lightbulb is taking your life into your own hands, then changing lightbulbs every 7 years instead of every few months is a good thing.

2. Swiffer Sweeper Vac-

No more bending down to sweep the dirt into the dustpan? A good thing. And it cleans better.

3. Swiffer Mop (or whatever it's actually called)-

Lugging around a pail of dirty water to clean 800 sq ft of hardwood floors? Not so much. Pressing a button to spray cleaner in front of you and then mopping it up with the same device? Aweswome.

Feel free to submit your own entries to the list.

*not being in a wheelchair or blind, I have no idea if these products are good for the more fully disabled, but probably.


  1. I love the Swiffer mop thingy. I have two floor, so it's so much easier on my poor bones to move that up and down the stairs.
    Also, I have problems gripping things, so opening jars is really hard sometimes. I got at a thrift store a thing that looks like a can opener that grabs onto the lid of the jar and helps give you leverage when you are opening it. I have no idea what it is called but it has been a life-saver!

  2. i totally forgot about that thing. i would starve to death without it!
