This means having to pack clothes in suitcases and then hope that they do not get too wrinkled. After all, you would much rather have your client paying attention to your presentation and not how wrinkled your shirt or blouse looks.

The Collar Perfect is the ultimate secret weapon for the professional traveler, no more having to worry about whether or not your collar or pockets look flat or the need to have an ironing board or flat surface to press out any unwanted wrinkles.

    The Collar Perfect touch up iron is the brainchild of two highly motivated professionals that were looking for a way to solve a problem that frequently plagues the traveler; not having ready access to an ironing board. Having to pack shirts into a suitcase for an out of town business meeting usually results in wrinkled pockets and collars.

      Using money from Kickstarter to get their startup funded, the pair developed a great compact travel iron that is small enough to pack in a suitcase. Along with being compact, it can flatten even the most unruly collar without needing an ironing board. The unique foldable design allows it to be able to be used on larger areas.

          Quick touch-ups are often all that you need to help you make that terrific first impression when meeting with an important client. Once the iron is heated to your desired temperature it is really easy to use and the outside of the iron stays cool.

          While it was designed for getting into the tight spots to get rid of wrinkles in pockets and collars. However, the unique foldable wings can be expanded out to give you an extra wide ironing swath. This helps to be able to eliminate stubborn wrinkles that are large in size.

          Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

          Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

          Thanksgiving, a day of pure gluttony, football, and possible uncomfortable situations with family members that you may or may not like. Oh, yeah, and the whole “know and reflect on what it is to be thankful and grateful.”

          During the holiday season many people forget what this time of year is bout and are too worried about getting the “early-bird” deals on Black Friday and making sure that they have the perfect gifts for their loved ones. I am sort of a “Grinch” when it comes to the holiday season, mostly because of that mentality by many of the poeple around me.

          But instead of being grinch-like this holiday season, I decided to simplify things and get back to what this time of year is actually is about; being thankful for what I have and what I can give.

          Simplify

          I’m not a “minimalist” in any real sense, but in the last few months the talks of Patrick Rhone and others have got me to rethink my stance. Can you really have too much stuff?

          Absolutely.

          And with all that stuff comes the burden and the weight of it on your back.

          Advertising

          If you feel that the things around you are out of control, maybe it’s time to simplify and be thankful and grateful for what you have and use. Here are a few things that you can do to simplify:

          • You know those gadgets in the drawer that you said you were going to sell? Well, time to get the listing on eBay and sell them. Or, send them to a place like Gazelle. Even if they are old and won’t get money, you can at least recycle them.
          • Get rid of things you don’t need. Like old books, clothes, tools, etc. Have something that’s been laying around forever with no use? Donate it to a charity or church. If you aren’t using it, someone else could be.
          • Find your productivity tools and stick with them. Use tools and gadgets that serve multiple purposes so you can simplify your tool set.

          Be Mindful

          You don’t have to be a master Buddhist or meditator to be mindful (although, it can definitely help). Being mindful comes down to being cognizant of the present and not keeping yourself in the past or future. It’s about living in the moment and being aware of yourself and everything around you. It’s just being.

          Without getting too “California” on you, it is super important to be mindful during the holiday rush. Rather than worrying about the things that you forgot at your house on the way to relatives or thinking about the next stop in your endless holiday travels, just breath and think about what you are currently doing.

          Advertising

          Spend the time with your family and friends and don’t crush the moment. Try not to concentrate so hard on getting the perfect photo of the “awesome moment” of the day and actually miss the awesome moment.

          Being mindful over the holidays will help you be with your families, friends, and yourself allowing you to enjoy your time.

          Reflect

          As the year is coming to a close (yes, it really is that close!) it’s a great time to start reflecting on what you have accomplished and what you haven’t. Within the next few weeks we will have a more throrough reflection article here at Lifehack.org, but reflecting every now and then over your holiday break is a great way to see where you have been doing well in your life and where you need to improve.

          Advertising

          Reflection shouldn’t be used to “get down” on yourself. Reflection should be used to take an honset inventory of what you have accomplished, how you handeled situations, and what you can do better. If you journal everyday (a daily form of reflection) it may be a good time to start going over some of the things that you have written and start to put together a year’s end journal entry. I mean, how else will you write your autobiography?

          But, seriously, reflecting on yourself makes you aware of your successes and faults and helps you plan and make goals for the coming year. It makes you a better person.

          So, while you are stuffing your face with bird, stuffing, and mashed taters’, remember that the holidays are much more than the superficial things. Use this holiday to become a better person.
