But this new bleacher seat has made sitting down for long periods of time actually comfortable! This amazing seat has padding, the perfect amount of reclining action, and also arm rests on both sides. Mine is the extra large version, because I normally have not one, but two toddlers trying to sit on my lap, and this chair makes it where I can do that with ease! There is also a cup holder on each side so I don’t have to worry about drinks getting kicked over. There is also a convenient carrying case to make transport easy! ~CQ Team
Mr. Coffee Programmable Coffee Maker
Back to school often means earlier wake up calls for everyone in the house. I know I need my morning coffee to get the day started, and with this Mr. Coffee Programmable Coffee Maker, I can set it the night before, and wake up to a perfectly brewed pot that stays warm until I am ready to drink it, and fill my thermos to take out the door. It comes with it’s own coffee grounds measuring cup to make sure that each pot is brewed just the way you like it! ~CQ Team
