Tried and True life hack you use.

Mine is simple. There isn't a better wallet / money clip than a good ole binder clip. I've been using the same one for 7 years. Can handle a big roll on down to my ID and a few bucks without worry.

 

 

Beat that.

I buy 6 or so bunches of bananas at a time, let them ripen, peel and freeze them in ziplock bags for my smoothies.

 

I also use the same money clip as you. Works great.

I freeze bananas for smoothies as well, and don’t need a fancy money clip as all I carry is an ID and credit card.

The money clip is ok as long as you don't mix nickles with dimes.

The boy still uses a sippy at bedtime. Those bitches are hard to clean out. Even with a wire brush. I use a old tooth brush. Works like a charm.

I don't usually geek out over tech stuff, but got some Jabra ear buds. These guys are awesome. Great sound, wireless, self charging case, very compact.

Been looking at those...the sport ones look good. I have some cheap Bluetooth sport ones that dont like to stay in when running...and have thenwore conmecting them around the neck. Would love an Apple ear pod like thing but made for running and more comfortable than apples crap headphones.

What system did you buy? I have 2 Netgear Nighthawk routers and am currently trying to figure out how to bridge one to simulate a mesh system. If it doesn't work I will prolly need to go your route.

Monistat ant-chafing relief gel for foundation primer. Downside is sometimes I feel compelled to mention that I don't own it for it's marketed purpose...need to actually figure out why that would be embarrassing though. Monistat makes yeast infection come to mind, but anti-chafing gel, not 100% sure about it.

so, I have a cheap pair of over the ear sony earphones that is use. something close to this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BN0N08K/ref=sr_1_13_twi_col_2?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1533399097&sr=1-13&keywords=over+the+ear+headphones took them with me on a business trip a week ago and i could hardly hear over the engine and cabin noise, and got tired of dealing with the cord. while killing time at a target i started trying some beats, bose, and skullcandy. too big and bulky.

 

edit: i still need to solve what to use when wanting to plug in to airline entertainment when on a flight.

 

a good friend of mine is into tech things in general and has several different products at his place. i tried several on and really liked these little buds. i would usually stay away from them because they would fall out or become uncomfortable. i honed in on several jarba. while browsing through my company's benefits, I found a 20% off of these (and the bose and another brand). just arrived yesterday and i love them. nice little app that helps you control a lot of functions. these are also supposed to be sweat proof for working out

apple cider vinegar with a dash of honey in a bowl covered in plastic wrap with small holes gets rid of fruit fly infestations.

At wendys they have those little paper cups for ketchup.

 

If you gently pull apart the folds it can become a bowl that holds twice as much.

 

Thank me later!

As does not getting your fruit out of a dumpster.

Instead of gently pulling the folds apart, press the open end of the cup against your mouth with your hand on the bottom of the cup and blow into it. Opens right up. Works for the paper cups at the water cooler too.

 

YOU can thank ME later.

I tend to keep apples, pears and bananas in an Italian decorative dish on my table. I'll get fruit flies whether from the Farmer's Market, Whole Foods, Trader Joes or the local grocery store. I only avoid them if I wash my fruit with my fruit soap I bought from Trader Joes or if I store the fruit in the refrigerator.

I do the same minus the bananas, in a wooden bowl. I almost always have apples and pears and sometimes plums. I would peaches as well but can never find good fresh peaches around here.
