2017 Hobonichi Techo Cousin


For 2017 I have decided to use the Hobonichi Techo Cousin as my planner. The popular planner from Japan is gaining momentum in the US and Europe. The most noted feature is the Tomoe River paper.

The planner includes 2016-2018 yearly calendars, 6-months-at-a-glance, monthly pages, vertical weekly pages, and daily pages.

FitBit Charge HR

I previously owned the FitBit Force but returned it once they announced their recall. Earlier this year FitBit released their new Fitbit Charge HR, so I decided to give them another look.

Most companies offer a variety of trackers ranging in price according to features. Ultimately I decided to go back with FitBit since I was happy with their previous product and the price is fair for the features.

Goodbye To Carrying A Billion Cards

It’s no secret that I’m a gadget lover. I’m also deeply inspired by creative entrepreneurs and innovative inventors. I have funded a few Kickstarter projects to date and have loved the experience. I get something new, fresh, and inventive while helping support individuals with big goals and even bigger dreams.

Today, I’d like to share Only Coin. Between my credit cards, joint cards with my husband, debit cards, membership cards, discount cards, and gift cards, I have roughly eleventy bajillion cards. I even pick my wallets by how many credit card slots they have plus I carry a separate card case. Only Coin combines all your credit, debit, membership/discount, and gift cards into one electronic swipe-able card. Goodbye overstuffed wallet! It can even alert you via your cell phone if you’ve left your card behind! Perfect for forgetful husbands. 🙂
