What is CheckingUOut? It’s a place to find a humble and honest opinion about all the wonderful products being offered in this great, overwhelming online marketplace. I believe that it’s better to know exactly what something is like before you invest your hard-earned dollars on it so I’m here, ready and willing, to do the research for you. Think of me as your saving grace from having to go through that pesky predicament of not knowing what to gift someone or worse yet, that disappointing product return.

Announcements, sales and new stuff, etc.!!

There is always something new being invented. I will never have to remember how to parallel park, worry about backing into my mailbox again, mash potatoes, and my all time favorite, start my car. What’s your favorite?

Healthy Living

I swear every morning that I’ll get on my treadmill, eat healthier, etc. This goal never usually comes to fruition. This is clearly not my fault. My treadmill is haunted and it needs an exorcism.
