I love it when I find a product that fits my needs. After a holiday season of wrapping lots of gifts and sending out lots of packages, I was thinking there had to be a better way to dispense tape, particularly packing tape. I’ve had the big dispensers, the small ones, none have worked very well. What I wanted was one that dispensed like scotch tape. Then I FOUND IT!

This combo tape dispenser is PERFECT! I like that it even has a space for pens and scissors. So long trying to find the end of the packing tape roll! I thought I’d share because perhaps some of you have been looking for something similar.

Have you found any amazing products recently?

    Susy, I’m always on the look out for new and useful gadgets. This just might be one.

    I not sure you will remember but way back in 2012 you and Brian started a series of podcasts called Cultivate Simple. Those podcasts were the best and I always got inspired to get my kitchen cleaned up and other work projects as well while listening to them.. The last couple months I’ve been in a slump and just didn’t really want to get started working on the projects that I need to get finished. Today I started back listening to those podcasts and your inspiration still works on me. I am invigorated and started working on my half replaced kitchen floor. Thank you so much for keeping them posted on your website.

    Have a great scotch tape dispenser day.

    I’m a bit late to this post, but I’m so glad I’ve found it. I’m going to order this for work . . . as soon as we get back from the shutdown.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
