Gerber Dime Multi-Tool – TSP Item of the Day

dimeEvery day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Gerber Dime Multi- Tool.  To me everyone should have a mini multi-tool on their key chain.

This is one of my absolute favorites due to how small and useful it is. There are so many times in our lives we could use a screw driver or a pair of pliers or even a good pair of tweezers.  I spent a lot of time checking into small key chain sized multi tools and the Gerber Dime was the one I settled on.

With this little gadget on my key chain I have the following tools everywhere I go, all the time.

  • Needle nose pliers
  • Wire cutter
  • Fine edge blade
  • Retail package opener
  • Scissors
  • Flat Screw Driver
  • Crosshead Screw Driver
  • Bottle opener
  • Tweezers
  • File

For many years I carried a Leatherman Wave, in fact I often still do.  Frankly I think it is the best full sized multi-tool out there.   But it is a rather large item on your belt and just not practical for every day and all the time.  To much EDC makes one look like a pathetic version of Batman you know.

So at times I would need pliers, a driver, etc, and just not have it with me.  Well pretty much anywhere I go I have my keys.  To drive home how small this item is when folded here is mine on my key chain below.  As you can see it takes up less space than the key to my 4-Runner.

The Gerber Dime Multi- Tool is also a great deal at under 14 bucks with free shipping on Prime.  It absolutely will not do everything a full sized tool does but it is small enough to always be there when you need it.  To me that is the key with mini multi-tools, better a small set of pliers then none at all!

Remember you can always find all TSPAZ Items of the day by just going to TspAz.com along with a link to Amazon’s top deals of the day.

 

Zymox Pet Spray with Hydrocortisone – TSP Item of the Day

zymoxEvery day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Zymox Pet Spray with Hydrocortisone.  As  you may remember my buddy Charlie the Pitbull-Pointer had some issues with his back paws.  We are pretty sure that evil fire ants started the issue and caused him to chew both his paws pretty raw.

Well as I reported in another review we used a combination of comfrey ointment and bitter apple spray to deal with it.  It healed very well over all, but one spot high up on his back paw seemed fine one day then was bloody red the next.

Time to up the game.  So I applied Zymox Pet Spray with Hydrocortisone and in a single day the improvement was marked.  It must taste like crap so over spraying with bitter apple has not been necessary.  After 3 days on it the sore was basically just a spot with hair missing, hair which rapidly grew back.

Comfrey was able to do the job here but a dog is not a person and sometimes a pup can’t resist the urge to chew, even though bitter apple spray.  Then it is time for something with Hydrocortisone in it.  This spray also has a three enzyme blend of lactoperoxidose, lysozyme and lactoferrin that effectively destroys bacterial, viral and fungal microorganisms. These enzymes are derived from natural milk protein peroxidases according to the manufacturer.

If you check the reviews on Amazon you will find many dog and cat owners consider this stuff a God send.  That is why it sits with 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 800 reviews.  So this is another item that belongs in your “Dogie First Aid Kit” (aka DFAK) because it works so well.

The key with hot spots and the like is get them treated before they become chronic and spread.  I like to rely on herbals but as soon as he made the sore bloody it was either this or the “cone of shame” and I just didn’t want my buddy in the cone.

Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop on Amazon you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

P.S. – This is not medical advice just personal experience.  Since starting using this we have several times used it for ourselves.  Last fall I got a small mark on my hand and assumed it was a scratch from some hardware cloth, it was to small poke marks, yea it ended up being a spider bite, what type I don’t know.

While it wasn’t something dangerous it started getting worse and worse, with some necrosis spreading, comfrey was no help, this stopped it cold.  Another time I got tore up moving some wood by fire ants, I sprayed the areas of my hands with this before the bites broke out, and they never did.  Again this IS NOT advice just a personal experience.

I would however like Doc. Bones opinion on this stuff.  Bones?

The Gerber EAB Lite – TSP Item of the Day

gerber

The Gerber EAB Lite is a Huge Bang for Your Buck as an EDC Tool.

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Gerber EAB Lite Pocket Knife.  This little guy is one of my absolute favorite little pieces of EDC. 

You may wonder why a guy that carries knives that cost 200-700 dollars would turn around and carry this little 6 dollar tool.  Simple I have no desire to dull and gum up my expensive knives on things like opening boxes with my good knives.  And it is one thing to get tape goo all over your 300 dollar custom it is another to dull it to the extreme cutting up boxes into pieces.

What the Gerber EAB Lite does is ensure you always have a razor sharp blade available because, well, you use razor blades in it.  Now think about this you can get a hundred pack of blades for 11 bucks.  Each blade can be used till dull, then flipped and you use up the other side.  That means with one 100 pack of blades you can flip or change a blade each week and will will have a brand new blade in your knife for almost 4 years!

Long term listeners of TSP know I have recommended this product for almost as long as there has been a TSP.  This little tool sells for about 6 bucks and ships free on Amazon Prime to boot.  I give these away to friends and family all the time.  It is a great way to share prepping in a very soft way.  People see it and are like wow what is that, or you are always prepared.  I just hand it to them, show them how the blade is changed and say, “if you promise to carry it you can have it”.

Important – One little safety tip.  Like most houses we have a “junk drawer” in our kitchen, right near the garbage.  I keep my extra blades and a small screwdriver in that drawer with and old vitamin bottle.

When I change my blade, I drop the old blade into the bottle and cap it.  This way no one will bet hurt handling the garbage.  I would feel awful if Charlie got hurt in one of his weak garbage eating moments.  It also protects us when we take out the trash and hey garbage men are people too right!  Just understand when your blade is “dull” likely parts of it are still sharp and can be dangerous.  Always and I mean always do something to prevent injuries from old blades when discarding them.

Anyway if you don’t already have one give the Gerber EAB Lite a try, for the price you can’t beat it.  And consider picking up a few to give away and perhaps one for each glove box in your vehicles.  I have even used this to skin squirrels and rabbits, with the way I do it, it is all you need.

Easehold Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser – Item of the Day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Easehold Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser.  I got a lot of questions about a diffuser for essential oils after one of my podcasts on getting started with herbalism.  Essential oils are one of my favorite way to use herbs, to understand why let me explain what a REAL essential oil is.

You know when you walk but a hedge of roses when the sun is hitting them and you get that amazing smell, when that happens you are experiencing essential oils in nature.  An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived.

Essential oils are made by distillation and it takes a lot of an herb to produce a small amount of oil. For instance to make a pound of lavender essential oil you will need about 200 pounds of lavender flowers to do so.  And lavender is pretty heavy as many herbs go, for instance if you want a pound of rose oil it will take 2000-5000 pound of roses to do the job depending on the rose type.

Want a pound of oregano essential oil, well you’ll need about 1,000 pounds of oregano to get the job done.  Bringing it down a bit smaller, if you want say one ounce of peppermint oil you will need only about 5 lbs of peppermint.  Or if you want just an ounce of that oregano oil you will still need about 60-65 pounds of fresh oregano.

This is why essential oils can seem expensive, and this is why when you see an essential oil and it is cheap, it likely isn’t pure essential oil and you should not buy it.

So why a diffuser, what does that do for you?  Sure it makes the house smell nice but are there any other real benefits.  Okay before I continue, to protect myself from the almighty dot gov, I have to say, I am not a doctor, nothing that follows is intended to cure, prevent or treat disease, it is only my opinion.  Ya gotta love our freedom in this nation don’t ya?

So here it goes, I feel that one of the first things a diffuser can do is promote more restful sleep.  This is critical to health in my opinion for obvious reasons.  Diffusers have also been shown to improve respiratory health and when used with some herbs boot natural immune responses.    I personally find they improve my mental focus and clarity especially when I am distracted.

Additionally many essential oils are antivirals, antibiotics, antiseptics, etc.  so they help kill germs and bacteria.  Finally they are just beneficial to your overall emotional health in my opinion.  In fact I think a lot of people on dangerous medications would be better off using essential oils and a bit of daily relaxing and meditation, or at least give that a try before committing to a life time of using a drug with more side effects than benefits according to the people that make it.

Now why the Easehold Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser .  I mean there are literally thousands of models why this one.  First check the reviews, frankly I am getting depressed with how many effing fake ass reviews are on Amazon, especially with any electronic product, but not this one.  5500 reviews, 4.5 stars over all and an A Grade on Fakespot.com.

Next looks, I mean this thing just looks nice.  It doesn’t look like some weird space age thing or some funky medical device, it is well suited to be in any home and match any rooms look and feel.  The lights are nice and make it look cool as well, but that doesn’t personally do much for me.  I do love that it has a built in timer and that it is very easy to set, in fact all the controls are very intuitive.

Lastly it just works, again as always I am out for a solid value to price ratio.  This one has it.  So check out the Easehold Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser today, it really will make you feel better in my view and guys, damn cool gift if I do say so myself.

Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop on Amazon you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

P.S. – I know there will be a ton of “what oils should I get”.  I really tend to buy a specific oil for a specific reason.  I use oregano because it is such a great anti viral, I use peppermint because it makes you mentally clear and frankly I just like it, etc.  But there is no harm in experimenting.  So as you learn about an herb, just get some good oil of it and try it out.  However as a great starter set this one is really good, It comes with 16 Essential Oils.

You will get 18 oils to try including, lavender, tea tree, peppermint, lemongrass, sweet orange, eucalyptus, pine, tangerine, rosemary, frankincense, lime, lemon, bergamot, patchouli, grapefruit and cinnamon.  The cost on this set is only 36 bucks and added to the diffuser it really does make an awesome gift I think anyone would appreciate. 

 

 

Flackers Flax Crackers – Item of the day

flackEvery day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is something I am very excited about.  It is Flackers Flax Crackers.  A couple years ago I let my paleo diet go for a bit, got to lax and put a lot of weight back on.  No where near all of it but too much.  Along the way I have gone back to Protein Power as the core of my Paleo Diet.

Thanks to all that I am once again in pretty good shape.  One thing I always hated giving up was a crunchy cracker.  With Flackers I have found my low carb crunchy muse.  You will notice in my link, I go to an exact match search for flackers, with a setting to pull up free shipping options.

These are being sold by a few vendors, pricing for volume is all over the map, so I leave it to you to pick and choose what works best for you.  Many are “add on items” meaning your total order has to be over 25 bucks but then shipping is free, so combine them with another item if you just want to try a bag or three.

I am going to suggest though that your first purchase be a just two or three packs, because not everyone will like them.  I LOVE them.  We got Rosemary and Savory to try them out.  Dorothy hated the Rosemary (funny because she like the herb) and said she could, “get used to the Savory ones”.  She is not in love with the texture though.

Me I am happy as a pig with a bowl of corn soaked in beer!  I did some of these with sardines, very nice.  I also did some up with yogurt cheese (mixed with cracked pepper, garlic and jalapeno) topped wtih some good quality sliced ham.  To quote Emeril Lagasse BAM!

Here are the stats, a serving has the following…

  • Carbs 8 grams
  • Fiber 7 grams
  • Net Carbs 1 (yes, fing one, woo hoo)
  • Protein 5 grams
  • Fat 8 grams (but zero Saturated or Trans fats and about 5 Grams of it is Omega 3s, most of the rest is ALA which many take as a supplement)
  • Calories 110 (but unless you get stupid you don’t count calories on low carb)
  • Seven grams of fiber

Okay so you have a crunchy snack, with one net carb a serving, a good amount of protein, loaded with Omega 3s, ALA and fiber.  This can’t get better can it?  Oh yea, these things are sprouted and raw.  If you read the write up on the makers website, they are soaked until just sprouted, then seasoned, pressed and dried to a crisp.  Yes sprouted!

Again my only caution is you may not like them, or you might, a whole lot.  But if you are low carb give Flackers a try and see if they work for you.  Frankly this is a super food, something you can eat a bit of every day and never feel bad about it, ever.   Below is a short video to give you an idea of what they look like.

Otium Bluetooth FM Transmitter – Item of the Day

bluetoothEvery day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Otium Bluetooth FM Transmitter.  I was turned onto this product by a listener and knew at once I needed one for my old F350.  About 2.5 years ago we got our Toyota 4Runner.  It was the first tech heavy vehicle I have ever owned.

I really love being able to play my iphone music and podcasts in it, to make phone calls hands free and hear them over the speakers, etc.  I have been trying to talk myself into getting a new stereo for my truck with features like that.

I just can’t justify it!  My old beast is a long ago paid for 2005 F350.  Not only is it an 05 but it was even when new a bare bones work truck.  I paid cash for it in 2011 and it has been a good partner.  I just don’t drive it that much any more, so I wanted the cool features and access to my music but couldn’t justify the expense.

I did have a FM Modulator in it for a while that allowed me to play music but it wasn’t really that good of a sound quality.  What I had been doing is taking my Bose Speaker with me, but I don’t really like having a 300 dollar speaker sitting in my truck when I am in the store or what have you.

Coming in at only 20 bucks, when I first reviewed it, I almost wrote this thing off but the guy that wrote in about it was raving about it so I gave it a shot.  Man this thing is slick.  First you pick an open unused frequency on the FM dial and set it to that.  You pair your phone to it and that is that.  And today it is an even better deal as the price has dropped to only 16 bucks!

You can now make calls, listen to music or podcasts, etc.  One really great thing is it also has a USB port so you can charge your phone and you don’t loose the outlet for that purpose.  It also takes an SD card if you want to put music or audio files on it that way.

Another great feature is that it has an aux port, so you can directly connect a non bluetooth device or not use bluetooth on your phone to conserve battery life, or simply because you don’t want to use it for any reason.

Most newer vehicles now come with these features built in but if you have an older vehicle this little gadget will give it a hell of an upgrade for only 18 bucks.  So check out the Otium Bluetooth FM Transmitter if you have an outdated sound system.

Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop online you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

P.S. – My only word of caution is make sure you have some “empty space” on your FM dial based on where you live.  Here in Dallas I have 107.7 and one other frequency that are actually empty with minimal bleed over.  I have put presets for these two stations on my radio so I can swap if one starts picking up too much static or bleed.  I live in a huge market and the dial is really crowded, in many areas the dial is full of empty channels.  If anyone knows of a comparable product that uses AM bands, please let me know, TONS of empty space there!

Marine Metal Aeratr Bubble Box – Item of the Day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Marine Metal Aeratr Bubble Box.  Yes this is another item for your fishing kit, but it is more than that, a lot more.  In the end what this is comes down to a battery powered aerator that runs about 40 hours on 2 D-Cell Batteries.  Again 40 hours!

So sure I keep one in my Fishing Kit, because it can keep bait alive or fish that I want to bring home alive in a bucket.  That is what most people use this for.  Yet there are other things one may need this for.

Let me ask you, do you keep fish at all?  Like do you have an aquarium?  Or an aquaponics system?  Now I am not suggesting that this little box can keep your 55 gallon tank or 300 gallon IBC running like a top long term, but what if you power goes out for a day or two?

Like many of you I have a generator but you can only run so many things and like many of you I am all about running what you can on batteries when it makes sense.  So consider with a 12 pack of cheap D-Cell batteries and two of these boxes you could keep two tanks aerated for 120 strait hours.  Folks that is 5 days!

Again long term this is not a solution for larger tanks but during an outage this could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in lost fish!  And what does this little magic box set you back, a whopping 8 bucks.

Oh and hey what about you high gravity beer and mead brewers?  Those of you wanting to push things to 16-20% ABV, one key to that is oxygen, so you hook this little bad boy up to your carboy, (sanitize the hose and stone of course) and run it for 6 hours before setting your airlock into place!  Note if you plan to do this you should get one dedicated ONLY to this use.

Again my main use for this is keeping fish alive in the field, mostly for bait and it is outstanding for that, but for 8 bucks it does a lot of other things.  So consider adding the Marine Metal Aeratr Bubble Box to your kit today.

Liquinox 3032 Iron Zinc Chelated Solution – Item of the Day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Liquinox 3032 Iron Zinc Chelated Solution.  This product is a mineral boost to my personally developed fertility program that I spent over a decade developing.

I selected this product because, iron and zinc are best utilized together by plants, and people too for that matter.   Liquinox 3032 is as the name implies a “chelated form” of these two minerals.  What that means in simple terms is it is in a form where the plants can instantly absorb and use these two minerals.

This also addresses two of the four most common mineral deficiencies in plants.  Those being iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.  Today we will stick with iron and zinc but will cover the other two soon.

The most obvious symptom of iron deficiency in plants is commonly called leaf chlorosis. This is where the leaves of the plant turn yellow, but the veins of the leaves stay green.

Typically, leaf chlorosis will start at the tips of new growth in the plant and will eventually work its way to older leaves on the plant as the deficiency gets worse. Other signs can include poor growth and leaf loss, but these symptoms will always be coupled with the leaf chlorosis.

And what do you think zinc deficiency looks like?  It is mostly chlorosis.  Some other symptoms are, necrotic spots where leaf tissue has died due to chlorosis.  Stunted plants including stunted leaves, leaves that are smaller than normal and malformed leaves are also symptoms.  And when people send me pictures of problems with their plants, over half the time, this is the exact problem.

So there were some other things that made me settle on this brand, again back to cheleation, it allows a folliar feed.  This is where we add the product to water and spray it on the plants leaves.  This is best done early in the morning or late in the evening so the plants can absorb the liquid without being beaten on by the sun.

I use this specifically in the ebb and flow beds of my aquaponics systems, where I simply mist the plants with a half gallon sprayer where I add this to my other folliar fed items.

While this may seem complicated and expensive it isn’t.  You just add some stuff to a sprayer and mist your plants every 2-3 weeks, you don’t use much.  A small bottle of this stuff is 13 bucks and has 16 ounces in it.  You use one ounce to the gallon for folliar feeding so a 13 dollar bottle makes 16 gallons.  I mix up half a gallon at a time and it easily lets me spray 6-10, ebb and flow beds.

For my wicking beds or in ground beds I generally do a soil soak at the beginning of spring and about mid season.  I don’t use it any more than that unless I see signs of deficiency.  To put it bluntly I just ordered a bottle today, I did that because the bottle I bought two years ago ran out yesterday when I dumped the last 10% into my new aquaponics tank to kick start the system.

Oh and another nice feature of this product is it includes some aloe gel, this acts as a soil wetting agent and gets the supplement well into the soil so it doesn’t wash away the next time you water or it rains.

This post and the one that will come next on Cal/Mag supplementation will round out fully my personal program that again I spent over a decade developing.

I have for a long time used a 4 pillar core fertility program for my vegetables and perennials.  These include GS Plant Foods Liquid Kelp FertilizerGarrett Juice PlusDr. Earth 4-4-4 All Purpose Fertilizer  and Endo Mycorrhizae Fungal Inoculation as the core of the program.  With a bit of mineral supplementation added to this your gardens can produce more then they ever have before.  So give Liquinox 3032 a shot and you won’t be disappointed.  You can always find my full fertility regime here.

Remember you can always find the TSP Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop online you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

P.S. if you use the links above for Liquinox 3032 you will find it goes to a search result with the 16 ounce option at the top.  The reason is for some reason Amazon won’t let me link directly to it, but I can link to the search result.  Just pick the 16 ounce bottle and you are good to go.  They also have a one gallon option you can find here.  While it is more than I need at one time, it is a good deal and since we are talking iron and zinc, it is shelf stable for many years.  So if you have a huge garden you may want to consider that option.

The One Percent Effect – Sell Your Home Fast – Item of the Day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the book “The One Percent Effect – Sell Your Home, Fast, At Asking.  Any Market.” by Dustin Dreifuerst and Jack Spirko.  And yea that is me, this Jack Spirko.

I was approached by Dustin over a year ago about this project and we hashed out a way to get it done.  This book is about selling your house and doing so at a profit and quickly no matter what is going on in the world.

I am not a real estate agent, so you may wonder what makes me qualified to co author a book like this.  Simply my record, here are the houses we have owned, what we paid for them, the date we sold them and how much we sold them for.

  • Purchased 1999 3 Bed,  2 Bath in Mansfield Texas – Purchase Price 87,250.  Sold in 2001.  Selling price 109,900.  Time on market 9 days.  Offer was for full asking price.
    ~
  • Purchased 2001, 3 Bed, 2 Bath in Northampton Pennsylvania.  Purchase Price, 137,500.  Sold in 2004 for 199,900, time on market 2 days.  Sold at full price and seller waived inspection to prevent additional offers.
    ~
  • Purchased 2004, 4 bed, two and a half bath in Mansfield, Texas – Purchase Price 119,900.  Sold in 2011 for 149,900, full price offer with property on market for 7 days.
    ~
  • Purchased 2006 as a BOL.  3 Bed, 2 Bath mobile home on five acres in Hot Springs, Arkansas for 69,900.  Sold in 2013, asking price 89,500.  Sold at full price, time on market 13 days.

A few things to keep in mind, the fist house was bought in the dot com run up and sold in the aftermath of the dot come bubble bursting!  The third house was sold before the real estate recovery, when lending was still very tight and my own listeners were asking me, “how do you expect to sell your house in the current market.  The house sold in 2013 was a mobile home we sold for almost 20,000 than we paid for it.  Real estate agents didn’t even want to try to sell a mobile home in that market.

So what is the secret?  It is, The One Percent Effect.  In the end all buyers are settlers, that is the key.  Every single buyer no matter if they are buying a 150,000 dollar starter home or a multi million dollar estate is a settler.

What I mean by this is they have a budget, then they have what they want.  Inventively their wants exceed their budgets, this is a constant, again being a wealthy buyer won’t change this short of the celebrities buying place for say 25 million and up.

So what people do is set a budget, set an area to search for homes in and look at anything and everything that seems like it might work for them in those parameters.

Not a single home will be perfect, even if the emotional couple convinces themselves that it is, in the end they always settle for what they can afford in the area they wish to live.  And most buyers define a quite small area to look in.  So what you do is simply make your home 1% better than anything else on the market.

Is it really that simple?

In a word, yes it is.  The key though is the execution of that objective.  In other words how do you determine exactly how to do that?  What do you give priority to?  How do you form a concise plan to stand out as 1% better than anything else in your neighborhood and price range?

Well, I developed a system to do that and as you know from my track record it works.  I take real estate seriously, there is to much on the line not to.  A house can go from your biggest asset to your largest liability in one quarterly down turn of the economy.  Yet there are always people who want to buy a home that can get funding, always.  The key is making them pick your home even in tough markets.

What about during a boom you say?  Now it is even more important to know the way to get that 1% effect, sure houses sell fast for most people but right now we have the biggest boom in our market in the last 25 years and there are still good homes on the market for over 120-180 days.  Why?  Little things that stubborn sellers won’t fix, so not only don’t they have the 1% effect, they have what I call the “Dreaded 10% Effect”, in that their houses are at least 10% worse then the average home for sale.

These are actually great homes to buy, they are homes I always look for, but buyers like me are few and far between.  In this book Dustin took my system and developed it into a step by step guide that anyone can follow and succeed with.

The cost?  Oh this is the best part, if you just want to buy it for Kindle it is 9.99.  Consider that your real estate agent will get 3-6% of the sale price of your home and most agents don’t have a clue about the things in this book.  Honestly if we sold it for 99.99 with a money back guarantee to anyone that used the techniques and didn’t sell at the top of the market for their level of home, we would never give a refund, I am confident of that.

But it gets even better!  If you have Kindle Unlimited, the cost to you is nothing, nadda, zip, zero.  So do yourself a favor and get a copy of this book, it will make your a more savvy person in the world of real estate.  If you simply work the formula in reverse it will also make you a more astute buyer of real estate as well.  So check out “The One Percent Effect – Sell Your Home, Fast, At Asking.  Any Market.” by Dustin Dreifuerst and Jack Spirko today.

Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop on Amazon you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

P.S. – If you buy this book or get it on Kindle Unlimited please do Dustin and I a favor and leave a review of this book.  Our hope is to get it well known beyond the TSP community and your review is a great way to help make that happen.  So please leave us a review.

 

Tweezerman Professional Stainless Steel Toenail Clippers – Item of the Day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Tweezerman Professional Stainless Steel Toenail Clippers.  This may seem like an odd item but well, it is something we all need and something that serves multiple functions.

There is the obvious function, cutting nails and I use these for both toe and fingers nails.  I have always found most toe nail clippers to be for well, I guess children and women.  I have had them come apart and even one time break, I mean the metal cracked.

Next if you don’t keep a set or two of clippers in your fishing gear you either don’t have fishing gear or you are missing out.  I keep a set of these in each of my tackle boxes, so no matter which one I grab I always have them.  Sure you can cut fishing line just fine with a knife but no tool on the planet is better for trimming up rigging then clippers.

Lastly I don’t know what it is but there are three things I lose more than anything else.  They are in order sharpie markers, tape measures and nail clippers.  I just don’t get it, I am talking not leaving a room or a garage, having just had it in my hand and fing GONE LIKE A FART IN THE WIND.  Sometimes they show up, a day, week or month later, sometimes they are gone forever.

I tend not to believe in the super natural but if their are gnomes or some such shit that steals things, they must adore pens, tape measures and nail clippers.   So I want a quality clipper but I also want one that when, not if I lose it, I am not going to be too upset about it.  At $6.68 a piece when I need more I usually buy 2-6 at a time.

Right now I am down to the ones in my tackle boxes and one pair in my medicine cabinet.   Perhaps I should put a rat trap next to it and see if those little gnomes really exist?  In any event for your nail care and your tackle box at this price the Tweezerman Professional Stainless Steel Toenail Clippers just can’t be beat.
