Smart Buy: A Wooden Drying Rack for Plastic Bags (and Baby Bottles, Too)

It’s hard to change habits. I’ve been trying to meditate in the mornings for, oh, about six months now. I even added the Headspace app to my phone; it sends reminders every morning at 6:15 to do a guided meditation. Yet even with this daily reminder, even though my desire to meditate is genuine, I don’t. I know I’ll get there some day. One step in the right direction? Instead of falling back asleep, I spend quality time in bed petting our beloved dog. It’s definitely not meditation, but it’s better than hopping on my phone, it’s better than snoozing...

The Secret Apartment: A Hyperefficient Moscow Flat with Stealth Storage (and a Hidden Kitchen)

When I was little, I was fascinated by Transformers, the toys that metamorphose from something seemingly mundane (like a car) into an action figure and back again.

I couldn’t have cared less about the before (the car) or the after (the action figure), but I was transfixed by the process of transformation, and I made my parents buy me one so I could study how it...
