You know, the kinds of things that when you see them you say, “That’s so nifty!” I promise you, if you hear the word “nifty” come out of my mouth, you can bet real money I’m trying to figure out a way to get said nifty-ness home with me.
A lot of people are attracted to the Nifty – admit it, you have at least one gadget in your kitchen you picked up because you went “How Nifty!” when you saw it. (Tupperware Deviled Egg Carrier anyone?) It doesn’t matter if you never use it; you bought it for its inherent Nifty-ness.
My purse holder is nifty – it hooks over the edge of the table at a restaurant so I don’t have to put my purse on the floor or on the back of my chair.
The cup holder SP got me for my birthday is tres nifty. It was designed for scrapbookers to keep unfortunate spillage or condensation issues from spoiling their hard work. It clamps to the side of the desk.
A ball point pen/highlighter combo that sprouts Post-It flags from its cap? Nifty.
The app for my iPhone that registers all of those customer loyalty cards in one place? Nifty.
The Solutions website is just full of Nifty things…
And how have I lived without these:
Not that I do home improvement projects, but hey, nifty!
I’m not sure who really needs this, but ….
This would solve some problems:
Kitchen timers! On a string! So you can hang it around your neck! Nifty.
(Solutions sends me catalogs. You know how teenage boys are about the Victoria’s Secret catalog? That’s me and Solutions.)
Nifty. I’m addicted to it.
Am I alone here with my nifty need? What truly nifty things do you have?
(BTW, if you type “nifty” enough, the word really starts to look strange. Like you made it up or something…)
