stash cans

50% off does not mean you can stash merchandise.

This thread reminded me how much I loved sale days when I worked at a thrift store. Twice a year we sold everything 50% off. Customers would come in before closing the night before and hide items so they could buy them half off the next day.

Staff would go through the store the night before and in the morning before opening. We’d find people’s stashes of merchandise sometimes piles of items would be found. The floor manager would take all these items in the back and put them in the sorting pile to be re-shelved the next day after the sale.

Just seeing those people go to their hiding spot to find it empty. Ha! The look on their faces. Priceless. Even better if they saw their pile on the sorting table, not to be put back until the next day. They never could say they stashed stuff they would just act like they really wanted those pants over there. When the floor manager told them we couldn’t sell stuff from the back you could tell they wanted to say something but couldn’t.

I loved seeing douchey customers throw fits that their secret pile was discovered and put in the back. It was a great thing to see because 50% off days were Hell.

A Guide to Stash Yarn

Yarn in a stash can be split into generally four categories.

  1. Expendables:

    This is the yarn that you don’t necessarily want but can still prove itself useful. There’s the crappy acrylic that your friend gave to you because you knit, or are too frugal to pass up, the bad color combos that you can never pair with anything, usually also gifts or sales.
    It’s often kind of scratchy or acrylic back when acrylic yarn was a new thing and very stiff.

    Good for practice yarn, charity knitting, knitting on a budget

  2. Staple Stash:

    This yarn is probably what you actually want when you go to a craft store. It’s probably still washable and mostly acrylic but it’s soft and in nice colors. It’s the cereal part of your marshmallow cereal. But the call to knit it is often drowned out by the new shinies you got.
    You’ll knit it some day. But it’s usually pushed to the back in favor of

  3. Practically Finished Objects:

    Yarn that’s been paired up to a pattern and needles and are screaming KNIT ME NEXT PLEASEEEE OMG. But you can’t knit fast enough to keep up with it. These are usually pretty exciting, new and maybe recent stock from your LYS. Maybe a little nicer quality or maybe some of that old stash finally made its way up the queue.  

  4. Display Yarn:

    Display yarn is yarn from the stash deemed “too good” to ever knit. Maybe it’s exotic and you don’t know how you’ll ever find musk ox down again, maybe it was handspun that was really expensive and you don’t want to waste it on a bad project.
    Or maybe it’s sentimental, or was your first handspun yarn, and it seems like an FO all on it’s own.
    Or it literally looks better as yarn than it ever will as a scarf or sock.

    Either way maybe one day you’ll find a perfect project for it, but for now you’re happy just cuddling/admiring your precious gems.

Do all Canadian meals include maple syrup

Haha not all but maple syrup is absolutely a must-have for Saturday morning pancakes/waffles :3

Also I… have a stash of maple syrup cans under my bed lmao. Buy them when they’re cheap in the spring and hoard them. Ando I have been known to send maple syrup home with friends visiting from the States in the past

I will say, I live for the Dishonored NPCs side conversations. 

Especially the ones that don’t really have anything to do with the plot or like “Oh yeah I heard about that stash of goods we can get it later”. The ones where they’re just talking about things like normal, every day life stuff. I love it. I love Dishonored NPCs. They’re great

It’s hard to find a good EDC wallet for carrying both cash and coins. All too often, you’ll have to sacrifice being able to carry money to get a slim, pocket-friendly wallet. But not always—take the Hazard 4 Wafer wallet, for example. It’s a slim, uncompromising tri-fold design with dedicated space for carrying cards, cash, and coins.

Bills slot into the main compartment, and you can stash coins in the zippered internal mesh area. It also has room for three to four cards, and it has an external ID slot as well. This handy feature lets you flash your credentials without having to open your wallet.

The wallet’s unique inclusion of a carabiner attachment point lets you attach your wallet to a belt loop or webbing so that you don’t lose it. For even more security, you can clip it onto any straps or webbing your bag might have, then stash the wallet inside.

Made out of 1000D ballistic nylon, the Wafer is a wallet you can take anywhere. Its security features help keep it with you always. This is the perfect wallet for those of us who carry cash, coins, and cards every day. Pick one up for yourself and give it a go. The Hazard 4 Wafer is available in coyote and black at the Amazon link below.

Poor Mans Go-tube .

Bamboo is one of those great natural products that has hundreds of uses and is easy to source in many parts of the world .

I remember watching a guide (ex Thai forces ) whilst trekking in the jungles of Norther Thailand who used a piece of cut bamboo to boil rice in .

Once it was cooked  he then split it with a large knife to make two platters  before splitting 2 thin sections of it to make improvised chop sticks  all in a matter of a minute.

Show here is a real simple way to make a watertight and floating container using an off cut piece of bamboo and a recycled wine cork .

 The larger the bamboo the more gear you can stash in it  but the harder it may be to plug the hole , this was just an improvised plug till I make a better bamboo cap to fit the cut end  and could work well for Geocaching too .

 I managed to bore a hole through into the bamboo just in front of the solid section allowing me to add a 550 para-cord lanyard and it also just happened to fit a stainless sewing spool with several meters of nano cord on .
