Great wireless laser printer for $60

I've been using a Brother wireless laser printer for years. I paid close to $200 for it. Now you can get one for $60. I hate using an inkjet because they are slow and the always seem to have streaking issues. Laser printers are much faster and you can buy 3rd party toner cartridges for cheap (like this 3-pack for $26). Read the rest

Good deal on my favorite cheap wallet: $6

This wallet doesn't last forever. It eventually got a small tear on the side that holds credit cards. I fixed it with a small piece of duct tape and it's been good for months. Everything else about it is perfect. I put my driver's license in the clear window, fiat currency goes in the middle, and cards go in the outside pockets. It's very thin and everything is easy to get to. It's usually $7 or $8, but it's on sale today on Amazon for $5. Read the rest

Good deal on Panasonic's nose hair / ear hair trimmer

It uses a single AA battery, which lasts months, even for a astonishingly hirsute personage such as myself.

It's regularly $15, but is on sale for $10 on Amazon right now. Read the rest

The joy of sanding sponges

These are spongey blocks covered with abrasive grit. They are ideally suited for smoothing irregular and rough surfaces. I use them to smooth a wall after repairing cracks and nails holes with spackling paste. I've also used them to sand the necks of cigar box guitars and other musical instruments. Get the 3M ones labeled 3X or 5X, because they last longer than the ordinary ones. Read the rest
