I have self-healing cutting mats in a few different sizes. One of them is over 30 years old. I used it to help make the zine version of Boing Boing in the late 1980s. I still use it today.

Save your desk and tabletop with one of these.

When we pick up our phones to shoot a video, most of us aren't looking to craft "The Godfather." We just want something that looks reasonably decent that won't be an embarrassment when it gets posted to YouTube or social media. But while not every video needs to reach Spielbergian levels of production, you might… READ THE REST
Be honest. How many plastic lids are stashed away in your kitchen? No, seriously…how many? Go ahead and check that black hole of a cupboard down there and find out. We'll wait… Was the number up over 20? Over 30? More? Now the second question is…could you even guess at which containers actually fit half… READ THE REST
