Swingline Smart Touch stapler review

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

So I recently received a Swingline Smart Touch stapler as well as a box of Premium Swingline Staples from for a review.  So let me tell you a lil bit about the product.

This stapler doesn’t look or feel like your average office stapler

This is the one that you want to have when you have a lot of things to staple together (Think PTA or any club meetings).  It can staple together about 25 sheets at a single time and is one of the most quietest that I have ever used (I have been providing administrative support for over 20 years so yes I have a lot of experience with staplers).

One of the things that I didn’t like about it is trying to figure out how to load it.  There are no instructions either in the package or on the box so I had to wing it.  After about 10 minutes or so, I figured it out (that button on the back of the stapler pushes the tray out of the front for loading.  Then you just slide the tray back into place).

The staples used with this product are the Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples. They come in a reusable plastic storage case that opens and closes easily and staples are very durable and do not come apart when holding them or trying to load them into the stapler (Major Plus).  I used these staples on several occasions since receiving the stapler and they haven’t jammed once.

Over all, I loved this product and would recommend it to everyone.  You can find it on the website here

Review: Phix Energy Stix

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Recently, I got a opportunity to try Phix Energy Stix, a herbal energy supplement and here’s a little about the company and my thoughts on the product.

The company and the product (as taken from their website):

Phix Energy is formulated under the direction of licensed dietitians and a world-class naturopathic physician, designed to help you feel better every day.

Phix Energy is a sophisticated natural energy drink powder blending green tea antioxidants, energy-restoring NADH and yerba maté for enhanced vigor, plus we add vitamins and minerals to keep you feeling healthy. Phix Energy is a delicious, lightly sweetened taste that’s refreshing hot or cold.

Phix natural energy drinks give you an immediate lift, but unlike other energy products, there are no spikes, jitters, or crashes. Phix includes natural energy supplements that provide smooth and sustained energy and help improve your energy levels day in and day out.

Phix Energy is a 100% all-natural energy drink. There’s nothing artificial and Phix green energy drinks are made from organic ingredients, are vegan, gluten free, and are designed to be safe and effective with daily use. Phix natural energy drinks come in 3 delicious flavors: Citron, Tropic, and Teaberry.

Phix Energy is conveniently packaged in single serving energy powder sticks so that it’s easy to Phix on the go.

You can find out more about the company by going to their website at

My thoughts:

After trying it for a few days, I did notice a boost in my energy level.  Not a big spike but enough to keep me moving during the course of my day.  And the best part is there was no crash like with some energy drinks which is one of the reasons that I don’t drink them.

Now you will have to sweeten it to taste if you choose but you can do with with any sweetener of your choice (I used a little honey).  And I’m being biased when I say that I like Teaberry more than the others.

Overall, this is a good product and I will be buying this in the future.

And now I’m giving you a chance to try the product as well.  I have 3 packets that I’m giving away to my readers in a giveaway so that you can try it for yourself.  Enter using Rafflecopter and drink in good health!
