I just thought I might lighten things up today with a short post about an object in my house that has been used again and again. You might be mistaken for thinking this object is an expensive item that is slowly realising its worth, but no. You might think this is an something that most people use everyday and has realised it’s worth many times over, that’s partly accurate. You might think this object is aesthetically pleasing in some way that makes it wearable on a regular basis, but no.
The item I speak of is the trigger pump from a bottle of all purpose cleaner spray that I bought at least six years ago. It is so well designed that it drains every last drop of liquid out of every bottle of cleaner I transfer it to. I only ever buy refill bottles and have been using this same trigger for every bottle for those six years. I love items that are well designed not matter how trivial they are. Good design just makes life more pleasant. This item will never be on the declutter list until it finally dies but by then it will have realised its worth a hundred times over.
Do any of you have an object that you love for it’s great design even though it would seem trivial in other peoples eyes that you would like to share with us. We would love to hear about it, so please leave a comment in it’s honor.
ITEM 216 OF 365 LESS THING
This jacket came free when we bought our son a motorbike but it doesn’t fit. We finally got around to selling it on ebay for $20.
