14 Assorted Tips to Start Your Day

Assorted tips, get it?

Assorted tips, get it?

I totally stole this idea from Seth Godin. You are welcome. 

  1. Fresh herb plants (basil, thyme, rosemary) are one of the best investments you can make if you’re a foodie. Buy a heat lamp, too.
  2. If you have an artificial Christmas tree, buy a bag to put in. You’ll thank me for this next week.
  3. Test your snowblower out before the first storm of the season.
  4. This Keurig is one of the best investments I’ve ever made in my life.
  5. Drink a glass of water the first thing after you wake up.
  6. Buy generic everything except: Triscuits, Peanut Butter Crunch, batteries, Oreos, and toothpaste.
  7. If you find a good mechanic, stay with them.
  8. Use the Oxford comma.
  9. If you’re going to have more than three paragraphs of text on a web page, make sure it’s broken up into readable blocks. If it’s not, nearly no one is reading it and you’re wasting your time.
  10. Use Three Sentences. Constantly.
  11. If you make the root of an onion the last thing you cut off, you won’t cry (as much). Most of the “cry juice” is in the root.
  12. Spend at least one or two 12-hour blocks during the week where you’re off social media.
  13. Try eating one vegetarian meal per day. It gives your digestive system a “protein breather,” if you know what I’m saying.
  14. Kefir is a pain in the neck to try and make. Just buy it from the store.

And that, my friends, is how you do random thoughts.

that first sentence was supposed to be a question...you tried shortmail?

Concept is good, but they have some work to do. It literally sends back the emails that are over 500 words. Might be good for personal mail, but never anything remotely professional.

Not sure I'm following! The tree bag is a giant, well, BAG that we shove our fake tree into for storage. Seriously helps!
