324 IHeart: The OddJob & a GIVEAWAY!

Part of being organized, is finding ways to simplify your life.  And sometimes that means paring down and looking for multifunctional pieces and tools to save space.  That is where this week's giveaway sponsor comes in!


The OddJob is unlike anything else on the market today in that it rolls 11 of the most common household tools into one!  It serves as a hammer, mallet, nail puller, ratcheting screwdriver with seven bits and flexible extension, and retractable utility knife, while still fitting into a small bag, a kitchen drawer, or a glove box.

As it's name suggests, the OddJob is handy for assorted tasks - from hanging pictures, to assembling toys and furniture, to opening boxes, to replacing cabinet hardware.  It is also useful for projects in the garage, shed or backyard.

Here is what the product manager for Crescent has to say about the OddJob, "Before the OddJob, you'd have to rely on a variety of separate tools.  For someone who doesn't use a lot of tools, that creates unnecessary clutter and the opportunity for things to get lost."

The kind folks at Crescent are stopping by today to giveaway a few of these marvelous tools!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


Good luck everyone and...


The OddJob is available for purchase here.  IHeart Organizing official giveaway entry rules can always be found here.

  1. My most-used tool is probably the screwdriver. Not only do I use it to (obviously) screw things that come loose (my old pot handles, all the time!), but I pry things open, and have been know to occasionally use the handle as a hammer when I was too lazy to go get an actual hammer!

  4. My favorite tool is kitchen scissors! I can't open packages correctly without them. :)

  5. I guess my favorite would be a screwdriver. There are a few loose screws around this house and once I get started on one I just can't stop until they are all tightened. It is the one tool I hide so that the husband doesn't put it some place where I cannot find it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Probably my screw driver...I used it all the time when changing batteries in things.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I use my drill all the time, but can usually be found with a measuring tape, hammer, screw driver, and level in my pockets :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm a huge fan of the hammer. How would I hang my pictures without it?!

    ReplyDelete
  9. My my favorite would be a heavy duty stapler- it hides a multitude of sins!

    ReplyDelete
  10. The hammer! You can even use it to make crushed ice for a cocktail ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have one of those interchangeable screw drivers where you can change the tip as needed. That thing goes everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Measuring tape. I use one at home a lot when I'm rearranging furniture, artwork, etc. I also keep one in my handbag (along with necessary measurements) for when I'm out shopping. never know when might stumble upon the perfect little table or some baskets that might fit in that little cubby

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would say screw driver as my little boys are always loosening things around our house.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I use probably all of those things about the same (maybe not the nail puller, though I definitely need one with plaster walls!). What a fantastic way to reduce clutter! Even if I won one, I think they'd make fantastic Christmas presents for my extended family.

  25. This is such a cool idea! My favorite is probably the hammer...good stress relief!

  26. In my first apartment my favorite tool was the needle-nose pliers. Being a basement apartment, we had bugs and the pliers were perfect for moving them to the bathroom for a watery grave.

    Now I have a whole toolbox of real tools and an entire house that needs them. But I was thinking the OddJob will be perfect when I taking my Girl Scout troop camping. There's always something in the lodge or cooking shelter that needs a little fix. Leave things better than you found them, you know?

    ReplyDelete
  27. My favorite has got to be the hammer! I love rearranging paintings, so its pretty important!
