Having your important files everywhere is a huge convenience. I lost count of the number of times I needed my passport, a recent proof of address or my CV handy. In all of these cases I was grateful for Dropbox. Dropbox is a cloud storage service owned by an American startup of the same name.Continue reading “A Filing Cabinet in My Pocket”
If you own a Nespresso machine, this is for you. A Nespresso machine is pointless without coffee capsules, or pods. I typically have between 50 and 200 pods at any given time. Having this many pods requires a storage solution. I have tried many storage options in the past, and considered many others. All ofContinue reading “A Hidden Stash”

Have you ever lost your phone? I have. I sometimes find myself distracted and I simply forget where I left my phone. This happens to me more than I’d care to admit.
