What new innovative products have you discovered?

I am a single mom that is always on the go and never have time for anything!! I have a 3 year old boy + 5 year girl that I adore and try to make as much time I can for them. I recently came across some a few new products that I bought that have made my life easier and wanted to share this with all of you!

1. Bersica Futurewear - This is a high-tech line of children's clothing that is water/liquid resistant, stain resistant, oil & dirt repellent childrens' clothing. This is great because my kids stay clean all day and liquids literally bounce off the clothing!

3. The Kindle: Imagine carrying around more than 200 books or newspapers in your purse. This paperback-size 10-ounce tablet lets you make an electronic library from 28 national daily papers (less than $15 per month each) and 200,000 books and counting (about $10 each) to wirelessly download from amazon.com. The Kindle's size-adjustable type is easy to read, and you can bookmark your page, make notes, use the dictionary and wikipedia.org, and read the first chapter of a book before deciding to buy. $359, Amazon; amazon.com

4.Satellite GPS Messenger: For anyone who loves the great outdoors, this GPS rescue device can make a lifesaving difference. With near-total global coverage, it works where cell phones don't and has a 911 emergency signal that transmits every five minutes for up to 14 days until rescue. (At press time, it had aided over 65 distress calls.) Other controls share trip progress and let you send messages to check in with the folks at home. $170 plus $100 per year for service, Spot; 866-651-7768

    This will be really cool when they actually come out with a whole line of clothing. From their website, it looks like they only have an EXTREMELY limited amount to choose from (basically, is your kid a boy or girl?).

  • It may not be all that new, but I think it's definitely rarely known (particularly at my university).

    Microsoft Office OneNote 2007

    It's pretty much a binder on your PC/Laptop.  You can print to it, write notes in class, and keep everything organized by class/project. I've definitely found it useful for online classes, especially those with weekly "modules".  I'd organize all my notes, PPT lectures, websites and online readings by week.

    You can print anything to it and it is automatically set up as a printer on your computer.  

    It's also great even if you're not in school.  You can organize household projects, work related projects, and pretty much anything you where you would need to keep a lot of information organized. 

    Price depends on whether you want it individually or with other Office products.  You may already have it.
