My mind reels at all the gadgets there are out there on amazon today.
I have an instant meat thermometer that is waterproof, instantaneous readout plus has a magnet so it lives next to my grill.
Something similar to that wasn’t even available a decade ago. And, if it was I would have definitely had to spend money a hundred bucks in some costly study room store. I went and got this online for love 9 bucks. Oh plus it has a flashlight. I just love all the things I can get now to make my whole life just that much easier. I try to limit myself to a new gadget per month, when I can. My latest, greatest tool has been a truly cool hand held temperature gun that I got on amazon. Literally, all you do is point it at something plus it will supply you quickly with a fairly accurate read on the temp. I didn’t get this weird little thing just to have it. In fact, it was an essential piece in my overall continued war on breaking Heating plus A/C energy bills. My home is in a difficult area where the Wintertide can be brutal. It is seriously cold here for at least 6 months a year. So, the costs for running the Heating plus A/C furnace all fall and Wintertide can be love paying a car payment each month plus then some. I personally wanted to reign in those costs so I asked the Heating plus A/C guy what he thought was the best DIY solution to reducing the Heating plus A/C load during the long winter. He said get a temp gun plus find every place on the exterior of my entire home where treated air is leaking out. Basically, just seal up the house from there. The temp gun worked perfectly for this. I’m now saving over 24 percent on my furnace bills during the winter.
