    I wish I had thought to add one to my recent Amazon order.

    Put a little kimono on him and he'll be the most polite bird in the western world ;)

    Does ALMOST count?

    They want $50 for this. If it were a perfect fit to the drawer, maybe, but it isn't.

    A super extra large silverware drawer divider. I have a lot of silverware (not silver).

    So then I ALMOST ordered these, but I don't think they would work either. Stuff would slide under.

    Now I'm looking for woodworking patterns to make one. But I don't have time to make one. :rolleyes:

    I actually own some of those bamboo dividers; they work pretty well.

    I have the white plastic version that has the crosspieces to divide them in the opposite direction. I preferred the look of the wood, but really get a lot of use out of the ability to further subdivide.

    I set up my kitchen junk drawer with them using the silverware tray to create another bin. It's still a junk drawer, but the stuff's segregated by category.

    This is obviously the cooking utensil drawer:

    I received my sprout seeds/grains and all the stuff I ordered for my new phone & watch, and one of the bezel/screen protectors is for a larger-sized watch. Totally my error. Sometimes I wonder about myself.

    I got Return Authorization and reordered. I installed a vinyl screen saver and a watch wrap, so my watch is protected.

    Watch Wraps

    Those are crude but I'll use them when working outside. And I'll leave it on until my classier ones arrive. They truly protect the whole watch...they're just not the most aesthetically pleasing thing in the world.

    I ordered a Rugged Armor raise bezel protector and reordered a couple of the more traditional snap-on screen protectors.

    They are cheap enough ($1.50 each for a 10 pak of another style) that I can have a bunch hanging around to swap out when they get beat up. I'm hard on watches. I always seem to bang them on the pointy corners of furniture.

    I'm still in the "accessorizing" phase of new phone/watch ownership, although the covers I've bought so far were cheap enough.

    Tripod Adapter for iPhone's Camera (or for any smartphone)
    [​IMG]

    My watch has a remote to control the phone's camera (the camera's display appears on the watch screen), so I can set the phone up on my tripod out on my deck and snap pics sitting inside the house without spooking the critters. And I can take selfies of me by my tractor and in front of other projects.

    Fully Encased Smart Watch Case
    [​IMG]

    The watch goes inside this case to protect it when I'm working outside. It has a glass front and a back plate, so it's completely sealed...waterproof (and therefore, dust proof.) The watch should not get banged up encased in this thing. I posted a question, folks say the watch is easy to install & remove, so I can swap it in & out with no hassle.

    I finally found some lightweight, slubbed-cotton hoodies to wear as tops after surgery. I have been scouring the internet for bed jackets or what have you, but ended up with cheap Hanes hoodies that are perfect for what I want. Very thin and lightweight; zip-front. I could do without the hood, but the lightweight fabric makes that a non-issue, so yay. Ordered three colors.

    I threw one more thing on my Amazon order so I get free freight for it.

    The other covers I purchased have plastic screen protectors and smudge horribly the fist time I swipe the screen, so I ordered one that has a tempered glass screen.

    I've also had various different issues with each of the 3 styles I bought before. I guess they're cheap for a reason. At least I did not waste much money.

    Placed a Walmart order for some coffee and for a Seawater Hydrometer.

    I've had freshwater aquariums so have measured ph and chlorine levels, but never salt. I'm curious to see how much salinity I've got from my water softener. It's pretty efficient.
