This Shower Note Pad
I don’t know about you, but I do my best thinking in the shower.

But if I had this waterproof notepad, I could write down the ideas as they come to me and not worry about forgetting them. According to the reviews, this thing really works.

Part of the reason that I hate bringing salads to work for lunch is that it is never easy to figure out how to transport dressing.

But with these perfect little to-go dressing containers, you can actually easily store the perfect amount of dressing for your lunch salad.
