Oh my, my, my…a cookie jar that locks you out!!! Who would have thought? During this holiday season, I can tell you this, I need one now before I become a balloon. This gadget called Kitchen Safe is making it easy to stay away from eating the entire batch of chocolate chip cookies. The Huffington Post revealed the Kitchen Safe, “A nifty gadget called the Kitchen Safe secures the lid on your treat jar and prevents those with a sweet tooth from mindless eating. It’s like a temporary sugar restraining order. The safe is equipped with a lock and a timer. Users can bolt their box of goodies for as short as one minute to as long as ten days, and there are no overrides. In other words, the box can’t be opened until the timer hits zero. The technology might come in handy for anyone trying to take control over their diet; whether you’ve resolved to limit your sugar intake for a week or really want to save some homemade brownies for your roommate, the tool could help.” They also commented that is not only for food, but other items as well.
The Kitchen Safe was seen on Shark tank, which happens to be one of my family’s favorite shows. The creators, said of themselves, “We understand willpower and self-control We continually seek to understand how willpower and self-control can be learned, improved, and exercised, so that we can help people achieve their goals. We follow the work of experts in the field, including Dan Ariely, Kelly McGonigal, and Roy Baumeister.
We practice the Golden Rule
We like to be treated well, and we know that applies to everyone. We want our customers and suppliers to be happy. We believe in treating people fairly. We trust that most people are good and will not take advantage of kindness.
Fun is important
Fun is great. Work should be fun. Products should be fun. We tell each other jokes. We celebrate big and small success. We find humor in our mistakes (and of course learn from, and seek to avoid similar ones in the future), because life is too short to be spent upset, annoyed, or angry.
We are genuine
We are honest, straightforward, and forthcoming. We believe in telling things like they are. We believe in letting people know who we are, even if we’re a little weird. No too-cool-for-school business.”
I can appreciate the help on our own need to limit our sweets, but I do love me some cookies!
