A lazy girl's little helper . . . A VIDEO Works For Me Wednesday

So, I'm stepping outside my comfort zone to show you my Works For Me Wednesday tip for this week.

I believe the cool kids call this vlogging....I call it scary!



Works for Me Wednesday is hosted over at We Are THAT Family! You can find more of my (non-video) WFMW posts here.

{And a thank you shout-out to kiddo for being the videographer. Thanks for not zooming in TOO closely on old mom!}

  4. I'm going to have to remember that when my 6'7" son leave for college in the fall. My hubby is that tall too but at work most of the day. Tongs it will be!

  5. You are too cute! That's a great idea. There are shelves not being used as much as they could be b/c I am vertically challenged. I think I found a solution!

  7. haha great tip and I love the video. I have to ask-- some call it lazy, but you call it ______________ (?) challenged. I watched the video 5 times and couldn't make it out...

    blame it on my ear infections from having the flu!

  8. utterly-toxic...."energetically challenged" :)

  10. yeah, lazy is not how anyone would describe you!

  11. Great video Bridget. You look even lovelier than you did on Regis and Kelly! Love the tip about the tongs. I'm only 5'2" and what's stored in my high cupboards are unfortunately too heavy for tongs. I always have to climb up on a chair or stool so mostly seasonal platters etc., that I don't require often are stashed up and away from my reach! Tell Kiddo he's got a career behind the camera...very steady hands!

  12. Love the tip!!
    However, what about things that you can't grab with the tongs? Do you have a step-stool?

  13. Love this! I realized I had a problem with using tongs too much when I grabbed them the other morning making pancakes. Yep -- it was before coffee.

  14. You did awesome! Being 5'nothing I am both height and energetically challenged and tongs are part of my arsenal to reach upper shelves!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hey, awesome tip! I'm rather short, so this may come in handy! Thank you. Very nice video.

  16. Hi there! Niki here, stopping over from WFMW. I just wanted to pop in and check out your blog. I like what I see so far.

    Stop by my blog, Free 2 Be Frugal, when you get a chance!

    Here I thought I was the only one lazy enough to employ this technique..LOL

  17. hahahaha... I do that tooooo!!! I though I was superlazy not to get a chair or a step ladder!!!.. I am no alone!!!!

    Very good video!! Thanks

  18. I usually hop up on the counter on my knees, but this sounds so much easier. Now to get some tongs like that! Great vlog! :D

  19. Bridget you are so cute!!! Loved your video and tongs tip!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow, I thought I was the only one that does that.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Really Bridget, no need to be nervous. You are adorable and very good on camera!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You are so cute in person! I mean - yea um on your vlog! :) LOL!

    PS - Are you a Texas native?? I don't hear a really heavy accent :)

  23. What a great idea. I have super tall cabinets when I am too. Lazy to get out the stool I climb like a 5 year old/ monkey. Probably takes more work. I get fussed at for it too. Ha. Maybe I'll bust out the tongs. Cute top too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. love the tongs tip and dude, you're cabinets are so organized...i have cabinet envy :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Adorable! You are a natural in front of the camera! Can't wait to see more 'vlogs'.

  26. You're a natural in front of the camera! You have to do more of these. Great minds must think alike: I've been using the tongs tip for awhile now, it genius don't you think?

    ReplyDelete
  27. You did great! I use tongs when my hubs isn't home too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOVE that you vlogged! (oh yeah, I said vlogged because I'm cool like that).

    You are adorable and I loved seeing you! I would SO make you my friend in real life and I don't care how creepy that sounds.

    ;-)

  29. Love your 1st video! I look forward to seeing more in the future. I adore that your little one was behind the video camera :-) And thanks for the great advice on the kitchen tongs....I often find myself dangerously climbing on stools just to reach what I need in the top cabinets.

    ReplyDelete
  30. YEAH!!!!!! You did it!!! Bridget that was SO STINKIN' CAUTE!!! you look adorable, you sound adorable! I LOVED it!....oh, and GREAT tip!! why'd I never think of that?

    I'm only 5'2"....so I can't reach much in my kitchen! lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. You are such a cutie pie!! I must have more of these. You have got to vlog daily now!!!

  32. Our home looks better than I thought. And you and your videographer-apprentice make a good production team ;-) Nice work on your first video post!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Mr. E....thank you, sweetie! I only showed the clean parts of the house! ;)

    Household6Diva...I've spent most of my life in Texas, but have parents who grew up in Rhode Island/Oklahoma and Kansas, so I guess that cut down on the accent. :)

  34. Great video....glad it worked.

  35. So nice to see your smiling face!!!!

  36. Given that I am "vertically challenged", coming in at about 5 feet & 1 1/4 inches, I use my tongs to reach a lot of things around the kitchen.
    Just this week I used them to reach a basket up on top of our cabinets that I didn't realize my husband had filled with corks. I was quite surprised by the cork shower that poured over me. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. You are so cute! And I am totally using the tongs next time I can't reach something!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great idea! I usually don't watch vlogs but I love your blog so I clicked play. My baby was fascinated, too! You did a great job with the video, BTW!

    ReplyDelete
  39. great video of you Bridget! but i know i'm shorter, a lot shorter than you that those tongs wouldn't help me much on that top shelf...i'd still have to drag over the step stool so i could reach it! :(

    but, its a great idea! and i love the new video!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. love your kitchen and tip :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Bridget! You are so stinkin' cute! I love the video, great job!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love this. Love you. Too cute. (How many times did you practice to get the tong grab just perfect?)

    ReplyDelete
  43. that was so funny - i love it! i'm going to have to try that from now on.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great tip! I usually have to drag out a footstool..never thought of the ole tongs. Great job on your video too!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great idea! I am only 5 feet tall....so I always have that same dilemma! I'll have to try tongs next time when my tall hubby isn't around!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I had to laugh as I do the SAME thing!! If my tongs aren't clean, an ladle can help me scoop, bat it out, and hopefully I catch it. :)
    You are darling.. more vlogging!
