Melt Away Your Stress and Muscle Pain with the Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massage by Etekcity -- Only $44.99 on Amazon! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

How has summer been treating you?  With the kids home, eating you out of house and home, and wanting you to keep them entertained for hours on end, so they don't get bored, summers can be a little stressful for parents and caregivers.  Hopefully you are making time for "you" so that you can relax and recharge your batteries.  One way you can do that is by reaching for the Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager to help ease achy neck and back aches you may find yourself suffering from, after a long day with the kids.  I know for me, I could definitely go for an hour massage by a professional...if only my schedule and wallet agreed with me.  

But, thanks to the Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager, I can now get a professional massage right at home, day or night.  Whenever I find myself needing to relax sore and tired muscles, I simply have to reach for this massager and strap it on, and I am good to go.  It can be used in the car, too, for on the go relief and relaxation.

I love how it comes with a bag to store the massager and charging cable 
(included with product)

Before I go on and on about how much I am loving my new Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager, I wanted to share some of the key features of this affordable massager...

  • "RECHARGEABLE & CORDLESS: This neck massager is equipped with rechargeable battery, can last up to 180 minutes; help you release stress, relieve sore muscles, and relax anywhere anytime, best for home, office and car

  • CUSTOMIZED MASSAGE: 8 powerful 3D deep-shiatsu kneading massage nodes with low, high & no-heat optional heating therapy modes and 3 adjustable intensity to help relax and relieve muscles pain stress, kneading in bi-directions and smartly auto-reverse per minute, the massager ensures your neck, shoulders, back, waist, tights, calves and arms endless customized relaxation and massaging pleasure

  • FREELY ADJUSTED & HANDS-FREE STRAPS: longer shiatsu massager straps than others enable you to better use and control it, and adjustable inner shorter straps are specially designed to fit all people, exterior straps allow you to position and secure the massager to targeted body parts that you want to relieve

  • 2-YEAR WARRANTY FOR FREE: Extended 90-day money back guarantee, also 1-year warranty (with the option to extend it by 1 extra year for free) and Etekcity lifetime support"


I have only had the Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager for a couple weeks, but it has become a staple at night during my "me time" I, after the girls and my husband are asleep.  I

I'll grab the Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager out of the handy carrying/storage bag that comes with the massager, then strap it on, either around my neck or lower back, and then sit with a good book, relaxing on the couch.  Not only does the Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager help in relieving tension, but it is like the stress melts right away once I turn on the massager, and start to relax.  Knowing just how great this massager works (it even includes a heat and reversible direction setting), I am still amazed that the folks at Etekcity are only asking $44.99 for it.   It's a steal at this price!  

Caught my husband the other night using the massager for his sore shoulders and neck

When he was done, he said his pain and stiffness was gone...he has since become a repeat customer each evening like me :-)

While summer with the kids home 24/7 may add a little more stress and aches and pains that you are used, know that they are only around for 18 summers before they go off and start living their own life, or head off to college.  It may seem like a stressful time, where you find yourself wishing September and Back to School would get here, but try and enjoy this quality time with your kids, especially while they still want to hang out with you. :-)  And, then, make a point at night to pencil in a little "me time" so that you can melt away the stress of the day and any aches and pains you may have with your own at-home massage, thanks to the Etekcity Rechargeable Neck Back and Shoulder Massager.  I could go on and on about how great this rechargeable massager is, but why not buy one for yourself, and give it a try.  Within the first minute of use, you will be letting out moans and groans, as you find your body relaxing and recharging, so you are ready to tackle another summer day with the kids.

Say Goodbye to Expensive Replacement Printer Ink Cartridges Once and For All and Hello to the Epson EcoTank ET-3760! (Review)

Disclosure: This is a review for the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 All-In-One SuperTank Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

I have been in the market for a new printer, especially with the upcoming school year fast approaching.  Being a homeschool family, I print more than the average person does, as I am printing workbooks (many which are 50-100+ pages), activity sheets, schedules and all other necessary homeschool-related print outs.  If it wasn't for the expensive cost of printer ink for our printer, I would be printing more.  But, I found myself spending more on the replacement ink than on a box of paper, and needing to stock up on ink more often, that it only made sense to buy already printed out workbooks, etc. for the girls to save on the printer costs.  But, for the past few months I have been researching printers, and am happy to say that I found one that works for my family and our printer needs.  I am now the proud owner of the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 All-In-One SuperTank Printer and love it!  

Ever since setting up the other day, I have been printing up a storm, and can't get over the bright and clean print out this all-in-one printer turns out, at rapid speed, none the less.  Unlike other printers I have owned and set up in the past, the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 All-In-One SuperTank Printer was super easy to set up.  Included with the product were step-by-step instructions, including photos, to help guide you and get you set up with this printer.  It look about 10-15 to setup.  The actually setting up was quick.  But, then I had to wait about 10 minutes for the ink charging.  

Once I was done setting up and filling the ink tanks, I installed the software onto my laptop computer.  Once this was done I was able to print.  What was so unique about this printer, compared to others I had been researching and checking out is that this one comes with mobile and voice-activated printing.  You can print directly from iOS device and/or Android device.  You can even print next to the printer, remotely, with Epson Connect and Google Cloud print.

The Epson EcoTank ET-3760 All-In-One SuperTank Printer lets you copy, print and scan documents and uses ink-jet to print out color documents.  The ink you are provided with the new printer can last you up to 2 years, cutting down on your cost of having to buy new ink cartridges.  Instead you use ink bottle to fill the ink tanks, thus also cutting down on cartridge waste or need to dispose of, and trips to the store to buy more ink.  I don't know about you, but I hate when I am in the midst of printing and run out of ink, and realize I don't have a replacement cartridge handy.  Now with this new all-in-one printer, I don't have to worry, as I am provided with enough ink right out of the box to print up to 7,500 pages in black or around 6000 in color.  This sounds like a challenge for me to test out the ink to print out numbers.

With Precision Core, this printer also turns out really sharp color documents, at fast speeds.  I usually switch documents to black as I know they would take longer to print in color.  But not anymore thanks to this all in one ink jet.  Just the speed of the printing process and refilling of ink tanks over purchasing individual print cartridges, should make this a no brainer for people, who like me, print a lot, especially in color.  I have only had this printer for about a week, but have been printing non-stop. With all the printer can do, and the ink tanks that you can see and monitor ink levels from the front of the printer, this printer is not clunky or look boxy like other all in one printers.  I have it set up on the side of my office desk, and it fits right in, with it's space saving design.  You also get a 2-year limited warranty with the registration which is always nice, especially when you are buying a new office gadget and want peace of mind if it breaks or needs to be serviced.  This 2 year limited warranty is also included with each and every replacement ink set you buy, too!

I could go on and on about how much I love the Epson EcoTank ET-3760 Wireless Color All-in-One Cartridge-Free Supertank Printer with Scanner, Copier, ADF and Ethernet, but instead, why don't you pick one up and experience this amazing printer for yourself.  It is definitely coming in handy for my homeschool printing needs.  I really like the crisp look of the documents that I scan, and the photos I print out using photo paper.  There is no dulling of colors or smudging of the documents as it comes through the printer.  I have tried to find cons for the printer, but so far haven't run into any issues or things that would having thinking twice about the printer.  I am a frequent printer, and this is definitely the printer for my printing needs, that will allow me to cut down on cartridge waste and trips to the store and excessive amounts of money spent on new cartridge replacements.  The ink bottles you use really do go a long way, and will save you money in the long run.  

I highly recommend this all in one printer, especially for teachers and small businesses who do a lot of daily/weekly printing, copying and scanning.
