Recharging The Juice - Aloha!

I have a camera that uses rechargeable batteries. I love it. Batteries are so expensive that if I had to purchase batteries for my camera all the time, I wouldn't have a camera.

I think batteries should be gifts to parents instead of toys! For real. Just like I'd gift a new mother loads of diapers, because I'd want that too!

Oh and you better give my kids gifts that works without batteries because when those run out, it's out.  However dh is generous with batteries to the kids toys, unlike me.  Can you tell I'm the one who worries about money?

Interesting article here on which AAs rates an A.

So do you use rechargeable batteries?
Do you put more batteries in your kids toys when they die?

What's your foodie thing for this week?
How about some Orange Sherbet Salad.

And a little about me:

1. Do you have a go to song that always puts you in a good mood?
2. Are you a real Christmas tree kinda person or do you go with a real fake one?

Fake all the way. Cheaper and last a long time. It's just a tree. I can smell pine whenever I want. 

3. What are you thankful for?

I was just thinking this morning , how thankful I am to have a garage to put our car in so that I don't have to scrap ice off it each morning. So yes right now, I'm very thankful for this car and our garage.

4. Which fashion fad from the past do you wish you could wear today?

I don't know. I never kept up with fashion fads. 

5. Do you wait until the "low fuel" light comes on before you fill up the gas tank?
:) YES! lol 
I drain that sucker! 
I calculate how many more miles I have before I ground to a halt.

  1. we have several sets of rechargeable...
    use them for the remote for tv and wii...
    also, for his toys (yes, we change them when they die)
    finally, my mouse and keyboard are both wireless, so we use rechargeable for those (and of course, my camera!)

    side note... HOW ARE YOU

  2. I use rechargeable batteries whenever I can but we don't have enough to power all the kids toys!

  3. The only thing I use rechargeable batteries in is my camera. (And, of course, the laptop and phone that I don't have a choice about.)

    Everything else I've tried to use rechargeable batteries in never really seemed to work as long as when I used traditional disposable batteries.

    So I try to keep a supply of AA and AAA in my "junk drawer." I primarily use has been the most dependable for me.

  4. I keep a lot of batteries on hand and I give a lot of batteries with the toys, if they use them. I do not like the rechargeable batteries in camera. I tend to run them down to fast and have no one to recharge them. so I use lithium batteries for my camera and carries extras. I find I do not run out as often on them.

  5. Since my boys are men, we don't worry about toys. We use regular batteries.

  6. I don't think I've ever used rechargable batteries. Great idea, though.

  7. i love rechargeable batteries.. i have about 10 sets laying around my house between the tvs, toys, etc..

  8. We had rechargeable's in our wii controls and when my daughter failed to put one of the remotes in it's charger it dies. She promptly threw the batteries away and put fresh duracells in there. ggrrrrrr.....

    Have a great weekend!

  9. We have rechargeable batteries for some things!
    BTW I love Michael Buble'

  10. We use them when we can, but they are costly and I need to buy more.

  11. we use disposable batteries. as for the kids' toys, half of the toys have batteries, half don't. I guess I try not to put batteries on all of them at one time. i rotate them ...

  12. I usually wait until the low fuel light comes on, but then I fill it immediately!

  13. I always buy batteries in bulk when they're on sale at BJ's (our local warehouse store) so I always have plenty on hand. I use rechargeable for the things that come with rechargeable, but don't buy rechargeable batteries for everything else. I do change the batteries in toys - but only the less annoying ones. ;) And if I buy toys that need batteries for other people, I always include a package of batteries so they don't have to worry about battery replacement right away. :)

    Black Friday vs. Cyber Monday

  14. We use rechargeable batteries for our remotes, camera, wii, some toys and board games. We keep regular batteries around for emergencies.

  15. Hi Colette, TTQ sorry about last week, on vacation and thought the post was scheduled. Come to find out it wasn't, still sitting in my drafts.
    I use rechargeable whenever I can. I do refill battery for the toys...even though sometimes I am tempted not to.
