SignUpGenius makes planning your Thanksgiving potluck a million times easier.

19 Nov

SignUpGenius Simplifies Planning Potlucks, Parties, and Community Events.

If you routinely plan events, you may find that SignUpGenius can help make the execution of your plans easier. Using the webapp’s 5-step wizard you can create a variety of electronic sign-up sheets that you can email to potential attendees.

Features include colorful themes for your invitations, detailed sign-up item list, and the ability to send out reminder emails before the event.

I usually use Facebook to setup events, but I like the sign-up item lists and themes. It would be nice to have these functions added into Facebook. Until then, SignUpGenius is a free ad-supported webapp that just works. It’s nice to know exactly who is bringing what so you don’t end up with four batches of mac & cheese.

Amazing lifehack: Turn a soda bottle into a solar light via H2O + bleach

9 Oct

This is an amazing way to harness light from the sun, especially in poor and developing communities. Props to this man for being innovative.

1) Get a soda bottle

2) Fill it up with filtered H2O and a little bleach (to kill bacteria/fungi)

3) Cut a hole in the top of your tin roof (house, garden shed, or any place with no light)

4) Seal it in and use the sun’s light to artificially produce a lamp. No electricity or money needed.

Brilliant.
