Glass Canister from LocknLock

Hello hello... I am back with another review of a LocknLock product. Since last few weeks I have been on a pantry and freezer cleaning spree. I had so many items stocked up - it was driving me nuts. Why because I felt awfully guilty when I had to thrash stuff because I didn't get to it sooner. So I started Project Eat Up Pantry.... LOL... not literally! I have promised myself not to buy anything extra until I finish up what I have at home. 

Few days ago, it was frozen strawberries and blueberries turn. Hmm... what could I use it in? There is only so many pancakes and shakes you can have! So I decided to turn it all in a fruit preserve/spread. A pinch of red pepper flake, a dash of orange juice and spoonful of grated ginger ....it made a world of difference.

Lock&Lock Glass Canister, Square, 3.8-Cup, 900-Milliliter
I will blog the recipe in few days... but that's not what I want to talk about right now. I had this glass canister from LocknLock which were perfect for storing my fruit preserve.

Trick or Treat....?

Halloween is just around the corner.....with it comes little kids knocking at your door dressed up in all kind of cute costumes and asking in sing-song manner "Trick or Treat?" Last few years, it wasn't such a big event at our house. We had our bowl of candies to offer to whoever came knocking by. Kids were dressed up and taken to couple or so houses and that's about it.  

This year things are a bit different - my daughter has grown up!!! And she is pretty specific what she wants to do. She is going to be butterfly ... "with big pink wings and butterfly skirt (that would be a tutu) and butterfly headband and we will get candies and carve a pumpkin". She knows her business ...LOL! Well we did carve a pumpkin yesterday at our friend's house and she enjoyed that (after initial meltdown about wanting to do everything herself - which doesn't work out most times).  Anyways after all the fretting, struggle and directing.... carving was done. And it looks amazing at night when light glows in it. And spooky too. Why didn't I try this earlier?

I am looking forward to coming Monday when we  all go trick or treating. Dear weather, please be nice!

And Halloween is also about shopping deals. LocknLock has one such event going on at this very moment  - Mysterious Halloween Mystery Box  for only $9.99. Whats so great about it? Well.. you will be getting products worth $40.  It would be assortment of containers (plastic and/or ceramic) and bottles and each mystery box will be different from other. There is something more - if you get lucky..... your mystery box could have a $25 gift card. So that would make it - $65 worth of stuff for just $9.99. Now that would be worth checking out. 
Mysterious Halloween!

So hurry, order one today because this deal gets over on 31st October - Halloween day. Believe me it will be worth every penny because LocknLock does make some excellent containers and bottles. So what did your mystery box contain? Do drop in a comment here... would love to know.

Bynn bin

I received my shipment LocknLock supporter gifts couple of days ago and I was super excited to see Bynn..... it has been on my list for a long time. Garbage bins don't need to be an eyesore. And Bynn is anything but....Its a plastic dustbin covered with removable leather sleeve - making cleaning the bin a zip.

It is an elegant solution for any place. I have placed mine in the bedroom. And it would be just as great in a living room or under an office desk.
This is one is smaller size (10.5 inches in height) but there is slightly bigger size available as well - Lock & Lock Bynn Leather Dustbin, 12.5-Inch. And yes they have other colors too - red, black and brown. These colors would match any decor.

And thats not the only garbage bin solution they have. They have lots of different choices available.  Lock & Lock Bynn Dustbin is a four part dustbin which perfect for using with plastic bags and complete cleaning. Plastic bags are completely hidden, so its another elegant solution for your kitchen. Go ahead check it out.
