Never spend more than you have to:
Figuring out the best time to buy something requires constant watch over ever-fluctuating online prices, and some knowledge of how prices have changed in the past. Luckily, you don't have to figure it all out yourself--there are great tools to help you do it. This week we're looking at five of the best that will let you know when it's time to strike.

Fire Within
December in the desert.
Appears to be a raging fire in the canyon- but it is just light scattering and bouncing across the sandstone walls.

If you cook (or eat a lot) of messy food, get thee a bucket of Oxiclean Stain Remover.
 
No more ugly spots.
When it comes to cooking, stains are everywhere. From bacon grease to berry purée, these are the most effective stain removing products for folks who spend their time in the kitchen.

Apparently oxiclean is based on sodium percarbonate. Basically anhydrous hydrogen peroxide, a powerful oxidizer, plus sodium carbonate, a powerful degreaser.

Deciphering the code in #Costco prices and getting better deals.

http://slightlyviral.com/getting-the-best-deals-at-costco/


Summary

Price ending in .99 – the product is full price
Price ending in .97 – a deal decided by the manager (Usually this is a special price you’re not going to find again. Once it’s gone it’s gone.)
Price ending in .49 or .79 – manufacturer’s special. (This is a product the manufacturer is testing out at Costco, usually at a lower price than Costco would sell the item at. Though this assertion might not be true)
Price ending in .00 – the goods are about to go! (Probably the best deal you will find in the store. It means the manager wants the item out. And once it’s out, the product is gone for good.)
A price tag with an asterisk – it’s discounted and done
(This means the product is discontinued. A combination of a .97 and an asterisk means you are getting a last chance good deal.)

p.s. REI has similar codes in their prices, that is to say, how the price ends indicates some sort of sale (degree of discount or clearance). 

#deals   #discounts  
If you shop at Costco hoping for big savings, you must read this now!

No, it's good you pointed that out. At least the next time I read an article about Target codes, I won't get excited.

The REI thing (my p.s.) is based on my observations. Though REI is not exactly a great place for deals. ;)

This reminds me of a satirical blog that mentioned REI: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2009/08/14/128-camping/

The most depressing TV show for cats.

I grew up rooting for the cat and always ended up cranky by the end of the show.

Brewing tea and controlling variables to get the caffeine and flavors that you want.

"When you steep tea, "the caffeine comes out first" from the leaves, says chemist Kuhnert. If you keep infusing, compounds called thearubigins seep out of the plant, and some will actually bind to the caffeine, he says — meaning the caffeine can't then bind to your brain receptors and wake you up. The longer you infuse the tea, the less caffeine that's available to your body, so a shorter brew can also be more invigorating, says Kuhnert."

While this article discusses English tea making, it does explain a few things about Chinese tea rituals (such as the use of really fine, delicate cups, fussiness on water temperature, and the chucking out of the first brew. It's the second pour that is desired, because it has the right flavors and less of the undesirable molecules, like caffeine).

The British are very specific about how they take their tea: black, with milk and sugar. But steeping the optimal cup requires a surprising amount of chemistry. Here's a guide to the science.

Ancient archery seems more badass than modern guns.
 
Apparently our idea of what archery was really like back when it was actually used in combat is all wrong. Kinda had to pick up my jaw off the floor a couple of times watching this. Anyone who writes fantasy, plays RPGs, or shoots arrows as a hobby might enjoy this.

This is really good documentation. It keeps things clear and guides you to a decision in just one step.
It's time to resolve the unending but inexplicable confusion over whether girls and boys can play with the same products. Before you head out to shop for the holidays, here is a chart that puts the issue to rest once and for all.
