When you are 5 foot 1 ish, having a stepping stool in your home is an absolute MUST!  As a matter of fact, when Dave and I were first married, it was one of the first things we bought.  Reality was that my hunky husband wasn’t going to be around ALL the time to reach all those high up places for me.  So with the plethora of wedding gift cards we had, one of them went to purchase a sturdy {Read More}
