Paulette presents the tips and tricks she has learned over the years in a fun and instructional way to help you navigate your one-handedness. As Paulette says, “If I can, you will.”

Paulette also shows that not every product works the way it’s supposed to, and sometimes it’s because of how we use the product. Visit the Products page for a list of Paulette’s recommended items.
