Look at this cute mini-scrapbook out of a paper bag at Rookie. If you’re coming to A-Camp, this would be a perfect project to record memories of it! Just saying!
In the last installment of this column we talked about wrist exercises (which I’ve been doing maybe 70% as often as I had wanted to, and are helping a lot!) and this is a full yoga/exercise routine for people who sit at desks and work at computers aimed at addressing some of the chronic issues and pains that can bring with it. I feel like if I did this whole routine, which comes out to about an hour long, two or three times a week I would be able to see through time and walk on water. I came across it through this article on working from home as a researcher with a chronic illness; you might like to read it also!

A guide for how to tell how old your home appliances are, and when they need to be replaced. For renters, pair with this Q&A on getting your landlord to replace or reimburse broken appliances.

This isn’t quite that thing, but here is a list of 5 cleaning products that pros swear by.
I think I’m okay at cleaning up broken glass, but I’m still glad I read this guide on it from The Kitchn because I didn’t know about the potato/bread thing.
The ways to store plastic grocery bags are all so easy I feel a little silly sharing them and yet, all of mine are definitely just in a weird gross pile in the corner, so maybe you needed this as much as I did.
