I tell yah, Amazon really does sell just about everything. They even sell a wooden casket that you assemble yourself, and this one actually makes sense to me. Personally, I don’t want a bunch of money spent on a box for my remains. Not to mention, most of the caskets out there today are made with treated woods and toxic adhesives. Not this Biodegradable Pine Casket ($400).

This DIY  pine casket comes with everything you need to assemble a non-toxic, biodegradable, glue-less, casket. All you need is a screwdriver and a few minutes. It even comes with functional rope handles. Just don’t plan on burying anyone over 6′ as the dimensions are 6′ 0″ x 22″ x 12″.


Trying to hang multiple framed pictures together on a wall sucks. Trying to line them up perfectly is a bit maddening. I tend to prefer eyeballing them instead of measuring. With that said, trying to line up a new nail with the frame hanger is tougher than you would think. Enter this easy hanger gadget. This simple, and inexpensive ($8), gadget makes placing the hole in the right place every time. You simply  use the hook on the back of the gadget, position the picture on the wall where you want it, remove the picture and press the...

The taste of a “true” free range chicken egg is much better than what we typically get at the grocery store. The yolk is a darker, deeper yellow and stands up in the pan. Once you have had a good egg it makes it tough to eat the sad, pale, inexpensive eggs that most folks purchase. Don’t take my word for it, buy four chickens, this chicken coop and let your hens roam the yard and eat feed and bugs. This chicken coop is easy to assemble, has ventilated mesh, and an easy cleanup tray. If this chicken coop doesn’t...

The traditional 3M Post-It notes are great for the home and office. Not so great, if you are an outdoorsy or tough environment type of person. You know, like a painter, contractor, gardener, etc… That is where the 3M Extreme Post-It Notes come in. The “extreme” version can stick on rough surfaces like brick and wood in cold, hot, or wet conditions. They are the toughest Post-It notes yet. ...

Cold weather doesn’t have to end your backyard hangout sessions. You just need to be creative. Try popping a Breeo smokeless fire pit to your backyard hangout area. There are four Breeo models to choose from (Ablaze, Zentro, Double Flame, and Luxeve). The Breeo fire pits keep smoke at a minimum by using a double-wall, secondary combustion chamber. This means that the smoke is mixed with heated oxygen causing it to reburn. No more playing musical chairs to dodge the smokey areas. The Breeo fire pits are made in Lancaster, PA and...

The Sudski is a drink can holder (in most cases for beer) that securely grips to your shower wall surfaces. It even has drainage so it doesn’t become moldy or water filled.    ...

Ever wanted to be alerted when motion is detected in your home, office, or garage without having a traditional alarm system? I have, and surprisingly there aren’t many options without subscription based services. I don’t want to add another camera or a costly alarm system. I just want to know when someone is in my garage for example. The only decent option that tends to come up is the D-Link DCH-S150 Wi-Fi Motion Sensor ($29). The DCH-S150 plugs into a standard wall outlet and detects motion up to 26-feet (100-degree horizontal...
