Heads Up! 

This app is a fun and hilarious game that Ellen DeGeneres plays on her show.  I am a big fan of Ellen, so naturally I had to download this app.  You choose a category (celebrities, movies, animals, accents, act it out) and hold your phone up to your head.  Someone else then gives you clues until you guess the answer, and you go through as many as you can before time runs out. This is a fun app to have on your phone to liven up a dull party, or play with someone in a waiting room when you have time to kill.  My husband and I have already played Heads Up! a few times and have really had a blast.  Heads Up! is .99 at the Apple Store.

Downy Unstopables Scent Booster

Like I mentioned in a previous post, I have an obsession with fresh and clean smelling things.  I got a free sample of Downy Unstopables a long time ago, and ever since I have been hooked.  They are little tiny beads that you put into your washing machine when doing laundry, and they make your clothes come out smelling heavenly.  They also make your house smell amazing while your washing machine is going.  If you notice on the top of the bottle, it says "squeeze & sniff" so you can sample each scent at the store I assume.  I cannot confirm or deny that I go into my laundry room to squeeze & sniff the bottle frequently, but I will say the blue one is my absolute favorite.  I put a double dose in the washer when I wash my bed sheets to give them a power boost of freshness that lasts a long, long time.  Seriously though, this stuff smells so good and the scent stays on your laundry forever.

Grocery iQ app

You know how it is, you write out your grocery list just to forget it at home or lose it in your purse.  Then you are at the store guessing what it was you were supposed to buy, and you always come home having forgotten at least 2 things.  That has happened to me more times than I would like to admit.  Ever since I downloaded the Grocery iQ app, those days are long gone.  I love this app.  Throughout the week when I realize we are out of something, I just add it to my list on my phone right then and there.  I always have my phone with me, so no matter when I go to the store, I always have my grocery list.  There is also a feature that lets you view coupons from, so you can see what coupons you can print for items you have on your list.  You can even find your nearby grocery store and add your loyalty card with the app.  I feel like I am way more organized with this app and my grocery trips are a lot faster since I am not browsing as much and I only get what is on my list. Grocery iQ is free at the Apple Store.
