Stop Wasting Lotion and other Bottle Liquids

This is the shower diary, so of course I was fighting getting out the last drops liquids from bottles yesterday.  It was driving me nuts.  Based on the weight, I could tell there was a lot more in the bottle than would come out.  I’ve had this fight many times before, but yesterday it just seemed that all of my potions and lotions were running out – all at the same time.  I drew pictures of contraptions that could fix the problem.  Most lotion tops are the same size (but not all – those $40 bottles are smaller than the $5 bottles of course).

So now that I’ve created this new idea, I figured I’d see who else has already come up with a solution… as that is usually the case with my “next big idea”.  So I find this Lotion Dispenser.

So I like my idea better because you don’t have to keep the contraption on the container all the time (you only need to buy one), and while you may use multiple containers for your liquids, they will be much smaller and if you keep to a 3 ounce container you can travel with them.  With the funnel cone, you can use any size container that you’re emptying and you can select what to fill.

You can use mine in the kitchen too.  Get the last of your sauce or other food liquids.  They can be a bit chunky or not (change the funnel).

Found this too from the Container Store.  Still like my idea better as you may want to go from a large container to a smaller one and the couplers don’t necessarily match up.  Also the lighter bottle is on the bottom and you’ll have a balancing act to deal with.

Lost you keys? Where are your glasses? Darn remote!

Okay are you as tired as I am of losing things? Wouldn’t be sooo cool if we had little dots we could glue on our keys, remotes, glasses and other things we are constantly misplacing…

911 Watch

Earlier this month two older women could have used the help of my latest invention – a 911 watch… created in thought (in the shower) after these two incidents.  There was an attempt to kidnap well-known business local owner for jewels and money.  Thank God this amazing woman – in her eighties mind you – was able to outsmart the evil doers and all ended well for her.  About a week later, a 69-year-old Milwaukie, Ore woman fell in her garage, dislocated her hip, and was stranded for over 18 hours.  She fell just feet away from her phone.  She too was saved – by joggers who heard her screaming for help.  If they were wearing a 911 watch, how would their outcome be different?
