Pencils are a good one, but how about ball point pens? Hard to fathom that radio and telephones were invented before ball points!

Seriously? lol 

Only problem is many times, pens either get left laying or thrown away when the ink runs out...even though you can by new ink inserts.

Candles...

They sell grinders now with all kinds of combinations: Sea salt and Pepper, sea salt and garlic, garlic and pepper, Italian seasonings...

One of my favorites is a "peppercorn medley", which has black pepper, green peppercorns, pink peppercorns, white pepper, and coriander.

I get that. lol Still...would rather have a way to do my own that keep buying it all. Hence that mortar and pestle or a grinder made to keep and use again. Less waste for garbage and less spent to have the convenience.

Funny how I just take it for granted everyone knows what squirrels are like and how they act. lol
I have squirrels in my yard. They love the bird seed I put in bird feeders and they sure can climb! I see them running on fences, on wires for phones and  electricity, in trees... I don't see many at a time, but they sure do get around!

I have seen kangaroos in zoos here, but since neither squirrels and chipmunks are native to OZ, they are probably afraid of the possible consequences if they were to be introduced there, since, like rabbits, I don't think there is a natural predator there to keep them in check.

my thoughts on a nifty gadget...a cup. you can drink out of it, use it to eat out of, use it as a scoop...it can be used in more ways than just a cup.
Is a cup a gadget? lol

You can even use it as a planter! A cup is a gadget if you say it is. smile2

How about nail clippers? Are they not a lot eisir to us than scissors, for the same purpose? Especially if you are right handed and trying to use scissors with your left hand to clip the nails on your right hand, or visa versa with left handed scissors.

Yep! lol

I once had a bread maker and didn't like it. One loaf at a time and not nearly as big a deal as me making my own. lol For someone who only wants one loaf and really isn't into all the "I made it myself" stuff, it's good. lol

Melon baller... a bigger one...I use it for home made chicken nuggets. lol
It works great to form the right size of meat for making a nugget. smile2 As a melon baller, no use at all. I just cut the melon and watch it disappear. lol

vegetable peeler... quite useful, even for carrot in salad...nice thin amounts. smile2
