In the glove-box of a Tesla by the five and dime…

Do you ever open the glove box of your car and wonder, what is this? I put it in there two years ago and now, I don’t remember why or what it is. So, you take it out and put it in the garage. I mean, it is new and still in the package. Then you get where you are going, and you remember why you put it in the glovebox the first time. So you have to buy another one and put it in the glovebox. Now you have two.  Sometimes, this goes on like the Trouble With Tribbles episode of Star Trek. Suddenly you have a box full of the what-ever item you needed in your garage. So you stop buying new ones and use up the ones in the box. Has that ever happened to you? Doesn’t have to be the car, or anything other than merely replacing something over and over?

One o the things a friend of mine does that I think is cool is he has a list of things he will need in his glovebox. That way, when he finds something there, or in the change holder, he knows why he has it. I am not that organized.  It is an exciting system. One of the things I have thought about doing for a long time is to RFID or Bluetooth enable my kitchen. What you do is put a broadcaster on various larger devices, so that you can find them easily. We have three different people that do dishes in our house, and all three have very different views on where certain things go. I find myself looking for can openers and other devices always. IF the device is connected to my phone, I find it right away!

RFID chips are smaller but do require, and RFID wand to read the chip, so it doesn’t help in location. But it might reduce the improper putting away of kitchen utensils. You can add location chips (RFID) used in warehouses to reduce people putting things on the wrong shelf. Can you imagine how high the twins would jump if a claxon went off when they tried to put the blender top away? This last bit is tongue in cheek, intended to be funny. I suspect the dogs would protest if I put a Claxon in the kitchen that went off when things were put away incorrectly. The twins, earbuds in, and music on probably wouldn’t hear the alarm anyway. So I would end up having to put the item back in the right place.

Anyway, sometimes you have to wonder why you keep buying the same things over and over.

  1. I get my chips from the fish and chips shop.

    I am glad they do not have location codes attached to these chips, to track the eater, …lol…

    I often buy another bottle of sauce, for my chips, because I can no longer source the original source of my sauce.

    It has moved to somewhere else in my pantry, and it is far easier just to buy another one, from the original source, rather than to track down the source, of the source, of the sauce, gone missing.
