I was looking through my “Bedrooms” Pinterest board when I noticed a wireless remote for lamps that I had pinned 2 years ago.
I clicked onto Amazon and thought a wireless remote would work well in the bedroom for the lamps.
Our bedroom lamps are vintage and work on pull chains which are a little touchy.
Charlie’s is controlled by the switch near the door but mine is plugged into a surge protector strip on the floor. I have to lean over to turn it on and off. Not convenient when I’m ready to fall asleep. So I bought a set of 3 for $15.
While I was on Amazon I remembered that the furnace in our basement had recently been cleaned and serviced and that the technician told Charlie we should get a dehumidifier for the basement to prolong the life of the furnace.
After doing a quick check of recommendations at ConsumersReport.org (which I access through my public library card) I purchased a 50 pint Frigidaire dehumidifier for $188.
I was looking for a dehumidifier that would run continuously if a hose were run into a drain. We don’t have a drain in the cellar but there is a well with a sump pump that will serve the same purpose.
We used to have a dehumidifier in the Cottage so if this one works well we might purchase another for out there after we get it cleaned up.
Do you follow through on recommendations made by plumbers, electricians, technicians, etc?
