Smart Weigh Pro Pocket Scale Review #TOP500

I never thought I would need a scale in my home, but I have found many uses for this little Smart Weigh Pro Pocket Scale! 

When my kids ask me random questions, like, "How much does an apple weigh?" - Well, child, let me just put an apple on my scale and you can find out for yourself! They then thought it was amazing and had to weigh just about everything, but I consider it educating because I made them read the numbers on the scale!

I also sell items with an auction page on Facebook, so when an auction ends I have about 10-15 packages to weigh and ship. I am amazed at how accurate this scale is for weighing packages of all sizes, it truly makes my life easier when preparing and weighing the packages for invoicing.

As you can see, the scale is able to properly weigh two totally different items that are opposite in size. It is accurate and efficient, plus very easy to use. Just hit a button, zero the scale out, choose the 

Features - the top500 is strong, accurate, fast, and user-friendly; will work great for any of your mailing, jewelry, reloading, and cooking needs

Functions - this scale can double up as a postal scale; the pcs function gives you an accurate count and the hold function will lock weight readings

Design - features a clear LCD screen lit by a bright blue backlight; will display readings in g, OZ, OZT, dwt, GN, and CT

Precision - manufactured with high precision sensors to provide the most accurate weight readings; weighs up to 500 grams in 0.01 Increments

Includes - 2 AAA batteries with a two minute auto shut off feature; the tare function will provide a net weight

This little scale can do a lot for you and it comes with a nice case to keep it protected when not in use. Whether you're weighing an apple, a small package, lunch meat, or even a toy car! This scale is compact so it is easy to travel with, would fit in your purse if you need it for a function where you would have to weigh items, or can easily be stored anywhere as it is not going to take up much space.

Overall, we really like this scale and highly recommend it! We pulled it out of the box, turned it on and were good to go!

Keep you printer stocked with

The dreaded moment when you are trying to print an important document...or coupons...or a picture of your beautiful children, when the ink runs out! I have had this happen to me way too many times, and it can be a stressful situation. When you are desperate, you run to the store and pay an arm and a leg for printer ink. Even with coupons, discounts, and deals that the big box stores offer, the ink will still cost around $25-$50...or re-stock the printer again, and I don't know about you, but I don't always have that extra amount in my weekly budget. 

Before you run out of ink for your printer, make sure you prepare ahead of time and check out this site that I have discovered, you can purchase ink cartridges for only $4.99 each. That is way cheaper than running to the store and forking over quadruple that amount. is a site that does not limit the number of cartridges that you can purchase at one time and the flat rate for shipping is only $4.99 too!  When you use their site you'll be able to stock up, since the price is super low, or if you are on a budget, you should try and monitor how much you might need to purchase based on your needs.

So, if you print quite a bit, as I do, you will be able to stock up according to the frequency in which you print. If you don't know how many you need, start with one each, monitor your printing until those cartridges are low and then order more based on the number of pages you printed in that time frame. 

What is 

 $4.99 Inks is a site that offers re-manufactured ink cartridges for many printers at only $4.99 per cartridge. They are located in California and offer flat rate shipping of only $4.99, and an order usually ships within 2-5 business days. Expedited shipping is also available as 2-day and 3-day guaranteed options. Canadian shipping is offered at a rate of only $8.99. 

Also, if you do not have a printer that they offer ink cartridges for, you can purchase a new printer for only $49.99! If you purchase a printer for only $49.99, it will come with a full set of compatible ink cartridges, and you'll then be able to purchase compatible cartridges through for our new printer.

If you are in need of a more affordable way to obtain ink cartridges for your printer, definitely check out for a wide selection of high quality cartridges for a super low price!


Check out their Facebook page for special offers and coupon codes to save even more! There is currently an offer that ends on 10/31 so head over to Facebook page ASAP to click on the amazing offer of Buy 4 Get 1 Free | Buy 8 Get 2 Free | Buy 10 Get 3 Free! 

With this great deal, now is the time to stock up!
