I worked at a grocery during my college days and the way the store was set up, shoppers were forced to walk through a giant section that was commonly referred to as "coupon alley." The weekly specials were stacked floor to ceiling and the hope was that even if people did not need the items, they would purchase them anyway because of the deep price cuts. Never mind that a lot of the merchandise was nearing its expiration date, which the store failed to mention. A bakery was also near the front of the store and they would bake fresh bread or fry donuts and point a fan toward the door. Anyway . . .
I consider myself a pretty logical shopper. When I go into a store I rarely leave with something I did not intend to buy. However, while making a run to the hardware store recently, an item sent out a siren call and I could not resist.
Long time readers know that the common zip tie is one of my favorite things on earth. I use them all the time and this flexible gear tie seems like a modern cousin of the zip tie. I have not found a use for them quite yet which leads me to a question for readers. Has anyone purchased these and used them for a bike related project or hack? Feel free to comment.
Oh, and if you have purchased something on impulse and found it to be beneficial to your bike experience, feel free to comment on that too.
