Just Indulge ‘Em: Crust Cutter

My parenting or kid-monitoring skills are simplistic: just shut ’em up if there is little or no work on my part.  These crust cutters (this one available from Amazon, $7) is the type of gadget that fulfills that philosophy. For anyone who just doesn’t want to deal with crust (pie crust not included, of course), …

Just in Time for Fall : Amazing Rake

Yeah, yeah, I hate raking leaves too.  Actually raking is not the hard part. Transferring them to trash bags is probably the worst aspect.  This rake from the ImprovementsCatalog ($40) looks interesting.  Just like a pooh-scooper (but without the grossness) this rake swoops and scoops. I’ve tried snow shovels, cardboard boxes, bear claws (which really …
