🖥️ New Desk Setup - MM
The whole thing is about four inches higher than beforeand my laptop sits on a perforated stand for better ventilation. Plus I stuffed my external hard drive and charging junk under the laptop. Because the monitor is on a swinging arm I shifted it over to the right giving me a large amount of open desk space.
I’m this close to posting to r/battlestations.
🧈 Butter Dish - CM
We don’t use a lot of butter in our household, so a butter dish didn’t seem like a necessity. However, after years of using a small plate and bowl as an improvised dish and cover, we got fed up. I bought one of these OXO butter dishes, and it’s perfect.
It’s small—just a bit larger than a regular, U.S. stick of butter (did you know the default size elsewhere is different?).
It’s cheap—$10. And it includes subtle markings for measuring.
We still don’t use a ton of butter—the half-sticks are great for us—but when we do, it’s so much nicer to have it at room temperature compared to shaving pieces off of butter straight from the fridge.
