In lieu of our regular Unitasker Wednesday post, I have a couple other items on tap today. First, I have a reminder to share and second, I have an almost-unitasker that managed to save itself from unitaskerdom.
The reminder: Today is the last day to sign up for a FREE bonus chapter when you pre-order my next book Never Too Busy to Cure Clutter. You can find out more about the giveaway in our previous post “The ultimate uncluttered gift,” or you can simply go straight to the form to register your purchase. (I’m emailing the chapters manually, so expect it to take a few hours for me to send it to you after you register. I mangled my attempt at writing a script to automatically send the PDF.)
Thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered my book and/or will purchase it in the future. Thank you, thank you!
The almost-unitasker: My friend Zac is a wee-bit obsessed with his fur child, a dog named Kaylee. (She’s cute, so I can’t really blame him for his adoration.) Zac regularly posts pictures of her to his Facebook feed, and over the years I’ve watched the puppy grow into a dog and go on many adventures (mostly to the vet and dog park).
Yesterday, Zac posted a picture of a greeting card he got the dog for her birthday. My first thought was, UNITASKER! The dog can’t read!! And I was all set to use the line of dog greeting cards as this week’s Unitasker Wednesday feature. But then I went to the link he posted and realized the cards are made of raw hide and the dog can eat the card — should eat the card — and I immediately changed my mind:
If only more manufacturers were this creative and utilitarian in their designs. It’d be nice if all holiday cards had alternate purposes — such as the ones you can plant because there are seeds in the biodegradable paper. Oh! Or they could be temporary tattoos so all your friends could wear your face on their biceps for a few days. (I totally need to do this next year.) Anyway, good on Crunchkins for thinking outside the envelope.
