Yes, I know this has nothing to do with books (so you think), but just hear me out. First, it’s just space-agey-looking, and cool, and second, it can multi-task. (Because my kids are the only thing around here allowed to do only one thing. They’re strictly here to entertain me.) Not only can you weigh yourself, but it goes up to 400 lbs, and my postal scale only goes to 10 lbs. So, now I have something to use when I’m mailing books! Have you ever tried to put a big box of books onto a little postal scale? Even if the weight is low enough to use it, the box is bigger than the scale, and blocks out all the light. A grown woman crawling around with a flashlight just to keep from standing in line at the post office is a sad, sad sight. Pretty sure that’s not what they intended when they sent it to me, but it works fabulously.
It’s skinny and fits anywhere, so you don’t have to keep stubbing your toe on that big bathroom scale that sits in the middle of your floor.
Since it’s digital, it doesn’t have one of those fun little dials like the scale I grew up with, but this scale only has to be calibrated once, when you first take it out of the box, and it only takes a couple of minutes. After that, there is no wait to get your…weight. There is less than ten seconds from the time I step on the scale until it gives me the magic number.
I have to go mail some books now.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
