They gave us a video challenge: Share your most unusual, yet practical, use of a common household appliance. And, wow, was I inspired:
If you create your own video demonstrating an unusual use of a common household appliance, you could win a $100, $50 or $25 Sears gift card. You can feature any appliance, from a toaster oven or blender to your fridge.
Email videos to lovethatmax[at]gmail[dot]com.
Submissions are due by Wednesday, January 18 by 5 p.m. CT; I'll send them along to Kenmore. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. Because the Kenmore people like Kenmore stuff, they ask that you cover any other brand names with tape. Uncompressed files are best, and the bigger the video format, the better.
Meanwhile, feel free to share the video with anyone in your household who might not be familiar with those big machines known as a "washer" and "dryer."
