Product (ReUSE): Ear Bud Cozy

Another crazy instant solution that solved a problem quickly.  This fix was for deterring my cat from using my ear buds as a chew toy.

The product:
Ear Bud Cozy

How it works:
An old drawing practice cube serves as a great place to stash my ear buds quickly.  Flip over and peel back the tape on the underside of the cube.  Cram in ear buds.  Flip over again.  Ta-Da!  Kitty proof!

Product (ReUSE): Using things that you might consider junk to fix a problem: Pseudo-Swatch Guard

Having not updated my blog in a while (busy with work), I started to look at my everyday solutions to find something to post.  I looked at the stuff that I do automatically - the crazy instant solutions that solves a problem quickly.  This fix was for a watch that was getting too many scratches.

The product:
Pseudo-Swatch Guard

How it works:
Take a cute rubber band (mine was holding together green onions from the store last week), twist it multiple times, and then slide each end loop over its respective watch band end.
