8 Inventions That Might or Might Not Make Raking Leaves Easier

Let’s admit it… Raking leaves is never really fun. Even if you like to shed your professional design for a moment, embrace your inner child, and dive into those leaves… Getting to that point isn’t always enjoyable. Though many have mastered the art of leaf raking and bagging with their own supplies… you’d be hard pressed to find someone who is not open to making this task easier (especially if it can be purchased through an online store with low cost shipping ?).

There happen to be a few tools out there that attempt to solve the leaf raking problem. Weather they are essential tools for efficiency or late-night home-shopping-network material is for you to decide…

Do any of these inventions actually make your life easier? Well they all claim to do so but in the end it is you, the consumer, who decides that. They all seem to be great ideas in theory but it is often in the execution of how these products are sold that determine their fate.

The status of their ecommerce and website design may or not be a symbol of their success, but two things is for sure: One, the easier a person makes it for people to buy their product the better chance they have of selling it. Two, the level at which it functions will ultimately determine if the product can survive in a competitive marketplace. Either way, it’s always fun and interesting to see what ideas people can come up with! Cheers to hard work and innovation!
