Reader Ralph writes in with a tip that may well belong in a Extreme Minimalism Monday post. He writes,
I hated carrying around my keys so I installed combination door lock deadbolts on my house doors. ”Look ma! No more keys!” … There’s also no need to give spare/emergency keys to family, they just know the code.
He points us to this keyless lock solution. There are also fingerprint and Bluetooth enabled deadbolt locks which allow you to unlock your front door if you “knock” on your smartphone — even if your phone is in your pocket.
Not sure keys bother me that much, but if they bother you, pair this with keyless entry in your car and you’re home free.
