Simple Lighting Tip

One of the first questions I think of when purchasing a new lamp, is if it has a three way switch. I like being able to adjust the lighting from high to low depending on the mood and purpose at the time. So when I wanted to purchase new bedroom lamps recently and found out they did not have a three way switch, I found a little device for $16.99 that fixed the problem:



Genius! You just plug any lamp into the dimmer which plugs into the wall. Works by a little slider. Simple and easy!

I don’t know how long they have been around but now that I have found them, I will never have to worry about a three way switch again. Slide up bright for reading, slide way down for ambiance.

Has anyone used this type of dimmer before? Pretty smart idea don’t you think?

  1. I’ve been using those dimmer sliders for many years. When reading in bed I just reach over and shut the light off. Much better than sitting-up and reaching a high on/off switch.

  2. I have plug in dimmers on several lamps where you tap the metal on the lamp and it turns on. You tap again and the light gets brighter. One more time and it gets brightest,then at the next tap it turns off. Fabulous invention!
