There are a few things I discovered in 2011 that have become my “can’t live without and would bring on a desert island” staples. The list is short — primarily because I’m a huge believer in “less is more” — and all of these aren’t new to the marketplace . . . just new to me. Maybe you’ve been using them already, and if so, hey! . . . why didn’t you tell me about them sooner? (more…)
