One of these. Slowly amps up the light until you realize you're awake. As opposed to "EH EH EH EH EH" and cursing the world. There are cheaper ones from other companies, different models that do bird sounds too, etc.

u/Spaceguy5 · 42 pointsr/CrazyIdeas

My favorite alarm clock design is one that, if you wait too long to hit snooze, launches a disk into the air, and the only way to turn the alarm off is to re-insert the disk.

Although it has really shitty reviews, lol

And then there's this one that jumps off your nightstand and rolls around the room until you catch it and turn it off o.-;

u/SheaRVA · 38 pointsr/Parenting

You can move his bedtime a little later to shift his clock (might take a while to take effect) or shorten his naptimes a little bit so he's more tired at night.

You can also start teaching him to stay in bed, even when awake, with a certain kind of clock:

This one is yellow when it's still time to sleep and then glows green when it's time to get up. No need for him to be able to tell time, just let him know that he needs to stay quiet in his bed until the light turns green.

u/DishsoapOnASponge · 22 pointsr/GradSchool

I've forced myself to become a morning person during my last semester (the first of my PhD) for the same reasons you mentioned. I made small changes that didn't make it easy, but made it tolerable.

For one, I got a light alarm clock. This one goes on sale regularly, wait and you can get it for $40. It starts filling the room with light for 30 minutes before the back-up sound alarm goes off (which you cannot adjust on this model, but it starts quietly and gets louder). Light usually does not wake me up or keep me awake, but this thing makes your room brighter than the goddamn sun. I find that I wake up easier, probably because something something circadian rhythms sunrise something something.

Once I drag my ass out of bed, I also turn on a light therapy lamp on my desk while I eat breakfast and browse Reddit. This also makes it easier to move around in the morning, and helps with seasonal depression as well.

I'll be honest here, some of these things might be the placebo effect (which of course is still an effect, so I don't really care). My advice is to try various forms of light therapy, but to get things with a money-back guarantee and give it a few weeks to see how things are going. :)

A few weeks into doing this stuff and waking up early, I even started going to the gym in the morning (even though I hate gyms, and mornings) and I've found that it a) wakes me up, and b) makes me feel like one of those obnoxiously productive people who go to the gym in the mornings.

Edit: Still have to figure out how to drag my butt out of bed on a good time on weekends though. It seems like I either wake up at 5am or 11am. Still working on this :)

u/BNSquash · 20 pointsr/Indiemakeupandmore

I saw that but my thoughts are why even bother selling it? It just seems like a bad idea as it really shows how overpriced your products are/how stingy you are as a company. I can go to MAC and get a free sample of foundation that will last me a week, or spend $1 on a Shiro sample that will last me a month.

It's honestly just such a bad deal it seems like a joke.

u/ado010 · 20 pointsr/getdisciplined

Here is what I found while procrastinating (still working on it). If, instead, you're a broke motherfucker like me, there are alarm apps for Android that slowly raise the alarm volume over X period of time so it doesn't jolt you awake. Mine begins barely noticeable, and eventually will start vibrating if I ignore the alarm for 10 or so minutes.

Bonus too, if you sleep by yourself, some of these apps can track your sleep movement, and wake you up at the right time based on if you're in REM sleep or not.

Lifting weekdays: alarm at 5, caffeine pill, whizz, back to bed until 5:30 alarm (Philips light alarm clock gradually lights up from like 5 to 5:30, at 5:28 "Teenage Dirtbag" plays from my computer requiring a password to stop.)

Gym clothes already laid out on top of work shoes. Put thems on. Grab studiously packed bag (containing running shoes, lifting shoes, work clothes, lifting belt, watch, cash, ). Walk 5 minutes to gym eating a 'nanner. Change into running shoes. Foam roll, static stretch, dynamic stretch, change into lifting shoes and grab belt, Weaklifts. Finish and change back into work shoes. Stop at a deli and get all the breakfast that fits into a foil container (that's like a pound of food: mostly eggs, some taters, two sausage patties, a few strips of bacon, all the Sriracha) for $4.50. Subway to work. Shower at work (we have a shower and locker room) and change into work clothes. At my desk by about 9:15.

Philips Wake-up Light with Sunrise Simulation alarm clock, White HF3500/60

This is the one I have, searching "light alarm clock" on amazon will give you cheaper options that probably work just as well.

u/Xiphos462 · 14 pointsr/TheRedPill

I like to go to work early because I get out early and can get to the gym, shop for groceries before the crowds. I found the difference between waking for work and on the weekends only varied by an hour. Yet i was tired and wanted to snooze for work. On weekends I woke naturally and was never tired. I realized that I was waking up naturally to the sunlight.

So i bought this alarm clock that simulates natural light and since I've gotten it no more waking for work tired, no snoozing. Coffee not necessary to stay awake on the job.

u/PantheraPardus · 13 pointsr/GetMotivated

This is my alarm clock. It's an alarm clock on wheels, allows you to snooze once, and then actually will roll off your bed stand and wheel away. It is the world's most obnoxious way to wake up, the sound is deafening and terrifying. But, it's effective. This little fucker will hide under my bed wailing away with its beeping noises for 15 minutes until I get up and get a broom to get him out. I hate him... but it works.

u/sennotar · 12 pointsr/blogsnark

Product Reviews, Winter Edition:

  • Phillips Wake-Up Light. Actual game-changer. I am a morning person, but when the dark-until-7:30am mornings drag on, I struggle. This has really changed how my wakeups feel.

  • Uniqlo Jeans. Stretchy, supportive fabric. Normal human person washes. 33 inch inseam! $60 in Canada, which is about as much as I feel like spending on jeans that my beleaguered thighs will just burn through in a few months.

  • Figuring out my skin routine which, for me, looks like this: CeraVe cleanser, Paula's Choice AHA/BHA exfoliant, The Ordinary HA+B5, Paula's Choice Ultralight SPF Hydrating fluid. My giant pores are less obvious and my skin looks radiant and healthy. I also drink a shit-ton of water which probably helps?
u/LanceLowercut · 12 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

I get up at 5:30am everyday and this is the key. The way to make getting up easiest is go to bed early (obviously), im usually in bed by 10 at the very latest. Some people try to find a shortcut perse but an early bedtime is really the only option. Another thing I have found is do not snooze. If you get in the habit of snoozing it just snowballs to more snoozing and you'll be even more tired. 10 minutes of you laying there isnt going to make it any easier, and if you do fall asleep getting up will be even harder the second time.

I do have a little more trouble getting up in the winter mainly because I wake up in the dark so I bought a sun light alarm clock which brightens up the room gradually before the alarm.

u/TrialAndAaron · 10 pointsr/DesignPorn

You don't have to stand close enough to see the links. The numbers are the visual marker! This isn't meant to give a perfect to the minute time. Just like those word clocks aren't meant to be. No one would say "Oh that would be better if it had every possible time on it" because that's not the point of it. This clock gives you a rough time frame and is more or less a piece of functional art. No one should be using this to give you the ability to tell time within 10 minutes.

u/stephja · 9 pointsr/Mommit

Mirari OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light

u/RhinestoneTaco · 9 pointsr/ChapoTrapHouse

I could never get up early very well until about three years ago, when my dad had to retire for health reasons and gave me this alarm clock he used.

It's one of those ones that glows brighter and brighter leading up to the alarm going off. In the last three years, the alarm itself has woken me up maaaybe five times. The light is always what woke me up, which is a nice gentle way of getting up.

I know it sounds like essential-oils voodoo bullshit, but I swear this clock rewired my brain into a morning person. I essentially only use the clock as a backup now, I set it for 6:30 a.m. but my brain is up about 6 a.m. anyway.

I have a half dozen or so boxes of tiles, as well as a bunch of the Paizo map packs. They're one of my primary map tools.

So first off, I got one of these collections of basic terrain mats. They work with the corresponding tileset really well. I use the mat as the base, then put tiles on top for detail. Anything that I don't have a mini or tile for I just draw onto the mat.

I usually set them up before the game, take a picture, then set them aside to quickly assemble when my players get to the location. If they already know whereabouts they're going, I'll leave it set up because it doesn't really give anything away like a basic town setup. I've learned the tiles pretty well at this point so I can quickly put stuff together at this point if they take a sudden left turn.

u/HarleyQ · 8 pointsr/breakingmom

u/dandanmichaelis · 8 pointsr/toddlers

I bought one online about a year ago. It’s this little alien looking clock, very cute. Here’s the link. It had a nightlight, ok to wake light timer, nap timer. We have only used the okay to wake light when she was waking up wayyyyyy too early. She has since stopped that so we don’t used that anymore but she loves her clock. It’s funny. I’ll ask her what time it is and she’ll run upstairs and grab her clock and bring it down.

u/brijjen · 7 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

This alarm jumps off your table and rolls away, so the only way to turn it off is to chase it around and catch it. :)

u/InfernalWedgie · 7 pointsr/AskWomen

Poo-Pourri. Also, turn up the TV before you go in.

u/rmill3r · 7 pointsr/cigars

Everyone's giving you advice about shrugging it off and going the tuppedor route, but I think the thing you're missing here is that you bought this thing and if it happened in transit then you should call them about getting a new one or at least a refund. I have this one and while its certainly nothing amazing, it's a humidor and its working just fine. I struggled with the rh at first because I simply didn't understand it but now it's fine and looks pretty classy....the only downside is that I discovered cbid, so now I have like 50 sticks coming in...for my "50"-count humidor....which is already filled with about 30.

u/Habitrail · 7 pointsr/ADHD


u/TRexCantDab · 7 pointsr/SeattleWA

Might I suggest getting a wake up light?

I bought one a couple of years ago because I got blackout blinds for my bedroom for the summer months, which lead to a VERY dark room in the winter mornings.

A wake up light honestly changed how I feel about mornings now. I used to absolutely dread waking up because it took my forever to get energized for the day. Now it's actually kind of nice to wake up to a simulated sunrise.

u/Ozmorty · 7 pointsr/melbourne

We have one of these suckers:

The whole gradually getting brighter until its a seething ball of light-fuelled hate glaring balefully through your eyelids to the back of your skull, is genuinely a brilliant thing for getting you out of bed before the screeching of a thousand vengeful harpies screams like a medical klaxon if you are still hiding in bed after 30 minutes.

u/fiercebaldguy · 6 pointsr/GetOutOfBed

Okay, so I am pretty sure you are just me writing from the past, because I have had the exact same problem... BUT luckily for you, I have determined a series of solutions!

  • First, go to bed on time. It doesn't seem like it would make that much of a difference, but it really does. (You might want to try the website for determining the exact time to wake up/fall asleep. I haven't seen astounding differences like some will tout, but I do notice some kind of difference.)

  • Secondly, there are a couple alarm clocks I could recommend:

    1.) The Alarmy app
    is one that requires you to get up and take a picture of something in your house/apartment in order to disable the alarm. It is super helpful to me but it does have the tendency to be a bit buggy sometimes (and not got off), so be forewarned...

    2.) I have a Clocky alarm as well and it is also pretty effective. It is one of those alarms that rolls off your nightstand and hides. And it certainly does make the most God-awful, absolutely un-ignorable sound in the world, so there's no danger of sleeping through that.

    So that's my collection of knowledge at the moment. Hopefully it helps!

u/nikkorizz · 6 pointsr/toddlers

Have you tried one of those [toddler alarm clocks](OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light 20 months old should be old enough for them to understand the color change and when it's time to get up.

For black out curtains, In our case, we had to cover up the windows with dark paper in addition to curtains to get full black out.

u/pcbzelephant · 6 pointsr/Parenting

Sorry your going through this but with that said my daughter never slept more than a hour or two at a time until she was about 4 months old. Usually her pattern was sleep a hour then up a hour all during the day and then at night she sleep a hour from 9-10 and be up from 10pm-1am and then sleep 1am-3am and then start the up a hour and then sleep a hour. It was pure hell. Some babies just don't sleep well. Mine also wouldn't sleep unless held while I sat up or in a rock n play(id try one of these in your case it could Possibly help). she hated the bassinet and crib with a passion. Luckily I didn't have another child to deal with since she's my first and only. I also would go downstairs with her at night so the hubby could sleep and I'd sleep when he was done with work from 4pm-10pm because that was the only time I could get sleep! Also don't stress too much it will get better like I said 4 months was our turning point and by 10 months she was sleeping 7pm-7am without waking and still does at almost 2! I'd also work with the older child to stay in their room until at least 6am so you can all get sleep. They make special clocks that tell children when it's time to wake maybe get one for the older toddler! Here's a link to one of your interested

u/Jenyjaykay · 6 pointsr/toddlers

We have the OK to Wake and it has worked really well for our 3 year old. It has a night light that turns off after the set time. We use that as her reading timer; when the light turns off she has to go to sleep. It also has a green light that will turn on when it is ok to get out of bed. This works both on the nap timer and in the morning.

To clarify, the basswood box and the Kikkerland Music Box Kit come separately, I forgot to take some photos before I attached them. Sorry for the potential confusion!

Here's a timelapse video of drawing the box cover.

And here's a demonstration of the music box. Some notes are definitely off, but I'll fix them once I get more music strips.

If anyone's interested in making their own, you can buy the music box kit it here . Please note that it cannot play sharps or flat, and that you should transpose music to C-note before punching holes into the strip.

Music Box Composer by Jelly Biscuits will save you a lot of time (~$15 for the full version) since it allows you to print notes on strips and you can just punch the holes. I only experimented with the trial version to test some notes, so it's better to just check out the site.

u/Hunji · 5 pointsr/pics

Got this clock as a Christmas gift (Amazon link).

u/dollheads · 5 pointsr/toddlers

We got this one for our daughter when she turned two, and we’ve been using it for about eight months. It took a while for her to grasp the concept of it (“green means go/wake up time” or “if you wake up and there’s no green light, it’s still sleep time”) but for the most part, it works for us. We still remind her every night when we say our goodnights (“good night/sweet dreams/see you when the clock turns green”), just to stay consistent.

I do get up earlier than her wake up time, and on days where she does wake up before the clock, I do see her just hanging out in her bed and waiting for the green light.

u/roofuskit · 5 pointsr/Parenting

There are two things.

First, this clock might help as she doesn't need to tell time to tell when it's OK to wake up. The clock optional though.

Second and most important, when she comes into your room during sleep time, you take her by the hand and without saying one word you walk her back to bed. Don't look at her and don't talk to her. If you do that consistently and warn her ahead of time that's how it will be, eventually she will stop coming into your room for attention she knows she won't get. Explain that she isn't to get out of bed except to go potty or when you wake her up (or her new clock lights up if you purchase that). It's vital that you are consistent with this new rule. Any inconsistency and it will be a failure.

My son came into our room every night for a short while. We tried this and it was huge success. But again, consistency is key. It also takes a bit of patience.

u/LikeADrearyImmortal · 5 pointsr/Narcolepsy

I've started using a light alarm clock and I find it really helps. The light gradually turns on starting 30 min before the alarm is set for, then when it goes off it's at full brightness. I find I wake up a bit with the light and it gives me time to work myself into fully waking up when the alarm sounds.

u/Karebare665 · 5 pointsr/blogsnark

Have you considered getting a Phillip's sunrise simulator alarm? It gradually becomes brighter for 30 minutes before your alarm goes off so you wake up naturally. It also has a regular alarm that goes off too. I have the basic model but there are fancier ones you can get.

u/Jerks_took_my_name · 5 pointsr/Fitness

Get a light alarm. I have this one and it's fucking amazing, especially since the sun doesn't rise until around 9 am right now.

(PS: I don't know why it's so expensive. My fiancee bought ours and I didn't ask the price but I refuse to believe she spent $700 on it)

EDIT: Asked the future-wife. She bought for around $70. We're guessing maybe it's discontinued or something, there are newer models for $130 like this one or $50 for this one.

u/alittlegnome · 5 pointsr/Advice

Try the Screaming Meanie. Truck drivers use it to wake up because their sleep schedules and pretty much everything about truck driving makes it both very difficult and very important to wake up. It has the added bonus of being portable.

There's also the Sonic Boom Bedshaker Alarm Clock, which is made my a manufacturer of alarm clocks for deaf people. It wakes you up by vibrating your bed and, optionally, beeping really loudly (not as horrible as the meanie though, and more precise volume adjustments.) I have one of these and it works great!

I've also seen the SmartShaker, which is a Bedshaker that connects to your phone via Bluetooth. Personally haven't tried it and I doubt that something that runs on batteries could shake me awake, however, but it could be worth a try.

If you have trouble with going back to bed after waking up to an alarm or turning off alarms in your sleep, I recommend getting an app that requires you to take pictures or scan barcodes. If you need the phone's ringer to be louder for the alarm, try hooking it up to a speaker.

You might also consider getting an old fashioned [Analogue Alarm Clock]( Those fuckers are loud and percussive and and don't have a snooze button. There's nothing like actual metal clanging together to wake you up in the morning.

If you have some money to spend, maybe a Sunlight simulation alarm would work for you. It simulates the gradual rising of the sun, but at whatever time you need the sun to rise and without having to leave your blinds open at night, with street lights bothering you and such.

Finally, I've found that the very best way for me to wake up is for my husband (or anybody really) to bring me a cup of tea. He can get still-mostly-asleep me to sit up and take the tea, and then I have to wake most of the way up to avoid spilling hot liquid all over myself, and then I fully wake up as I drink it. Obviously, this one is dependent on living with another person and having morning schedules that work together, which may not work for you.

Anyways, as a fellow heavy sleeper, I give you all I know about not sleeping through being a functioning member of society. :)

u/jbBU · 5 pointsr/medicalschool

If you're not already, try and keep good sleep hygiene.
I also use one of these illuminating alarm clocks and it has helped me improve wakefulness.
The last thing I'll say is that I wouldn't assume working EM doesn't necessitate switching sleep cycles (except in residency which is probably the case with most residencies). If you're willing to go out of major metros, you can probably get good terms on your contract and work how you want to work.

No problem! I'm using these. If you get the 2-pack you save a little bit per riser. Also each one comes with a little screwdriver. I now have 10 identical screwdrivers.

Combination of Life 2 Packs 3 Step Acrylic Riser Display Shelf for Amiibo Funko POP Figures Clear 12-Inch W by 8.5-Inch D

u/Spongekabob · 4 pointsr/amiibo

The IKEA Detolf cabinet is really nice. Looks fantastic, and is very affordable, I believe its 60 bucks. Ive seen so also other collectors on this sub also use the detolf cabinet, and everyone ive talked to about it loves it as well. I also use some typical acrylic risers from Amazon. Makes it so each shelf can hold around 36 amiibo (4 shelves, 144 amiibo total).

Set your alarm/phone to full volume and set it all across your room on the other side (or at least a good distance away) so you can still hear it but you have to get up to turn it off.

If that doesn't work, you could go for one of these things:

u/klaaaaatu · 4 pointsr/AskMen

if you don't want him to hear you: cover the water with a thin layer of toilet paper. when you go to the bathroom it won't make any sound. with this method it will stink more because it's on top and not in the water

if you don't want him to smell it: use a toilet spray like this one or this one. works like a charm.

u/las_nubes · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You mentioned that you're bringing Advil - have you ever tried starting it a day or two before the action starts? I've seen that strategy mentioned in a few threads lately (though nothing I saved, apparently - sorry!) and can't wait to try it next month. Poo Pourri is also amazing. It definitely saved me from inexplicably rushing my boyfriend out of our hotel room once lol. That said... while I feel it's just polite to eliminate any unpleasantness my period could cause others, periods are just something that happens. If someone can't handle seeing a well-wrapped pad (honestly why are they looking that closely at the bathroom garbage anyway), they need a reality check.

Link to the product on Amazon.

Humidor + 10 cigars for $30 (This does not seem to be the same humidor, but I ordered one and I'll see just how different they are.) This one is much better quality than the first one!

This is my first humidor, and I was impressed by the quality when it arrived. I would have expected something of this quality to be too rich for my blood.

In following the advice of a reviewer, I'm currently calibrating the hygrometer with salt water in a bag, and I'll charge it up with a shot glass of water tonight!

Edit: hygrometer is broken. It wasn't calibrated correctly, and the needle ceased to move (broke?) when I tried to adjust it. I've contacted the vendor to see if they'll send me a single hygrometer.

Edit2: I'm returning it to Amazon due to the broken hygrometer and buying the $30 + 10 cigars instead. Hopefully I have better luck with that one.

You might try one of those toddler alarm clocks, like this. Kids have no sense of time so they have no idea when they should be awake or asleep.

Finland gets very little sunlight in the winter, so bright therapy lamps are popular here. You could try those.

Same question was posted a couple of months ago. I'd love to know too, but other than fan-made one-offs, they don't appear to exist. The best advice in the last thread consisted of an instructable for a music box, plus a link to the sheet music for the melody. Here's the thread, if you're interested.

Edit: Here's a DIY music box kit I've seen sold on ThinkGeek and also used in several YouTube instructables. You have to punch out the score and build your own box, but it is inexpensive.

Clocky. It has wheels. When the alarm goes off, it sounds like a bunch of random beeping.

If you hit the snooze button, the next time it goes off, it will not only make a bunch of noise, but roll off your nightstand and go all over the room room until it gets stuck somewhere, still making noise.

Now that I have your attention, I would like to share with you the greatest invention known to man: Poo-pourri.

I use that shit everytime I take a shit, and I come out smelling of roses... well more like Fruit Loops (I actually call the product Fruit Poops because of the similar scent). Also, their commercials are hilarious: Poo-pourri Commercial

u/kukukajoonurse · 3 pointsr/needadvice

Poo pourri - just spray in toilet before you go, it creates a barrier of sorts that keeps the stink in. Any spray will work- just get some cheap dollar store body spray that doesn't smell too awful and a couple squirts on the surface of the water.

And do a courtesy flush too....

u/Red_Sparx · 3 pointsr/EntitledPeople

> The point is I don't think its cool for a girl to do that.

You are not ready for a girlfriend yet. You need to go back and pay attention in your biology class this time. Everybody poops; expecting somebody not to poop shows you have some unrealistic expectations for your relationship. I've heard guys say they don't understand women before, but you really don't.

And if the smell of people going to the bathroom bothers you that much, then either install a fan or buy some Poo-Pourri spray:

u/gasolinerainbow · 3 pointsr/shittingadvice

Run the water in the sink while you poop - or even better, poop before you shower if you can, and just run the shower while pooping and then hop in when you're done. I also love Poo-Pourri for eradicating the olfactory evidence. They have manly scents as well. This is how it works.

When I lived in a similar situation, I reworked my shitting/showering schedule so that I pooped before the shower and ran the shower while I did so. That and the poo-pourri soothed my shit-shyness and upheld the illusion that my poop smells like cedar and lemons. XD

Our guy has always woken up early. We started using one of the Mirari OK to Wake lights around 14 months. The light turns on at a time you set. So you can at least try to explain that if the light isn't on yet, he should go back to sleep or play in his crib. It felt like when I came in must seem arbitrary to him otherwise because he would always wake up at a slightly different time. We set it for 6:45. All this said, he still tends to wake up early and wail after a while. I think we just have a baby that doesn't sleep that much. But we at least have something to stick to and it has helped. I walk right in after the little light has turned on so he builds that association. Amazon link here.

u/funkyb · 3 pointsr/Parenting

My 3 YO has responded really well to getting one of these. If she's up early now she'll just play in bed or read unless she needs the bathroom, and is fine going back to bed if the light isn't green yet. Obviously it won't work for every kid, but it might be worth a shot.

u/gimble_n_wabe · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

I'm sure you've heard about them but just in case, maybe trying alarm clock made to alert your child when it's okay to get out of bed? I hear they catch on pretty quick and just play in bed until the clock turns green... not that I have any personal experience because my son is still a baby .

u/pbandjellyfish · 3 pointsr/Anxiety

There are clocks that ease into the annoying beeping.. I have one, doubt remember what it's called, but it slowly lights up before the alarm goes off, to create the illusion of sunrise.

Hi, dm here - the battlemat is from the standard paizo flipmatset I think:

u/TheNonAbsolute · 2 pointsr/warhammerfantasyrpg

I actually use Paizo Flip-Mats and draw on them with Dry-erase Markers, because that is most suited to my Style of Prep and running Games.

I also use some of the Minis I have from other Games to mark the Heroes and Villains if possible, but that is not always the case. LotR Moria Orks work as Goblins, and Poxwalkers work as Zombies, but a Rivertroll, or a Halfling Scholar? No Chance portraying that with what I have here.

What I do in those Cases is just use a Die to mark the Position and Wounds of a Monster or Character, I have enough Dice in enough Colors to make that work pretty well.


Edit: me no spell gud

u/inmatarian · 2 pointsr/rpg

Oh! I see, I misinterpreted what you were looking for.

Since this is more battle-mats than dungeon maps, the generic solution that everyone does is a Chessex wet-erase Mat, but you could also try Paizo dry/wet erase flip mats. If you're not pleased with the $20 range and want even cheaper, Gaming Paper for $4, or Graph Paper Notebook for $6.

u/gcThrizzle · 2 pointsr/DMAcademy

Be careful when printing these maps to have the scale correct. If the map says 1 square = 5ft sq, then you want each square to be 1 inch on each side. This will make the maps "feel" the right size.I do this measuring in Gimp to be sure. /u/sanderdc also makes a great point about the squares being 10ft sq !

You can also just buy some gaming paper or a wet/dry erase battle mat and draw it out yourself. Sometimes, that's pretty fun, and you can draw new parts as you go. This simulates the "fog of war" effect. It also requires far less preparation because you're just live copying the map as you go.

Well I have a bit of experience woodworking, so making the box wasn't particularly hard. The actual music box contraption I bought off of Amazon, Here's the link

u/rwt1995 · 2 pointsr/Luthier

It might not be exactly what you're looking for but you could make a box and put one of these in it.
You do have to be able to write the melody yourself, but its a good option.

u/puddle_stomper · 2 pointsr/Favors

One of these might be your best bet.

I'm pretty sure the song you posted is mostly in the key of B-flat major, and I think it has a couple very short key changes thrown in.

The typical music box has around 12-30 playable notes and plays from 6-8 bars of music (usually less than 30 seconds). The cheaper crank ones you can find at toy stores tend to be on the lower end of that range (12-18 notes).

If you were to make your own, you'd probably want to stick to the most recognizable melody from the song (probably the first 30 seconds since it's 8 bars) and skip any part with a key change. The notes you'll mostly be using are Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G, A. If you choose a short segment, someone else can probably transcribe/simplify it for you better than I would (try /r/transcribe). I could probably peck it out on the piano, but I don't have any way of making sheet music. (Note: I suggest transcribing it a full step up to the key of C-major).

If you choose to attempt to make a real music box and not one of those paper strip kinds, you'll need to find a comb (the part of the music box that has all the notes on it) and a spool (the part with all the raised bumps that triggers the notes on the comb) or just take one apart, as this website's tutorial suggests.

I suggested transcribing the song to the key of C because it is a common key for music boxes, so you could much more easily pick one up at a toy store. I can't think of any songs in B-flat off the top of my head, so I'm not sure it would be very easy to find a comb in B-flat. Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, When the Saints Go Marching In, and The Entertainer are all usually in C, and they're pretty easy to find.

How much time do you have for this? I don't have a lot of free time, but I might be able to help put together a template if you decide to go with one of the paper strip kinds.

u/enifish · 2 pointsr/Guildwars2

I used this, and only used tape, scissors, and the materials that came with the kit. I used 2 of the 3 paper strips that were included, but there are refills (also on Amazon) if you need them.

I also downloaded a free piano app so I could test out some of the intervals before punching holes in the paper. I used the tape on the underside of the paper to cover the holes if I made any mistakes.

u/doggie015 · 2 pointsr/australia

Have you tried getting one of those alarm clocks that runs around the room?

u/Penguidos · 2 pointsr/ynab

That's what I meant, yes. The idea behind a commitment device is that you are actually two selves, the planner and the doer. The planner may have high hopes, but the doer's the one who has to execute the plan. The problem is that the planner has no good way to enforce the plans, s/he just hopes that the doer will execute because there is a plan. (Seinfeld actually had a great description of this!)

Enter the commitment device. It's the way that the planner ensures his plan is followed through on. The commitment device removes options from the doer so that the doer is much more likely to execute the plan. If you put the groceries budget on a prepaid card that can't be spent anywhere else, you ensure that it can't be flexed out. That is, the planner knows that the doer will be tempted to flex the grocery budget to use for lunches. So the planner sets up a situation where the doer can't flex it. One fun example is Clocky, the clock that runs away from you when it goes off. The planner sets the alarm, and when it goes off, the doer has 3 choices: let the alarm ring, get up, or hit the snooze button. Knowing that the doer will be tempted to hit the snooze button, the planner removes the snooze option by purchasing Clocky. Now the doer must choose between getting up or letting the alarm clock ring while driving around the bedroom. (In the past, I solved this a slightly different way. I had a thing of caffeinated water next to my bed, and I'd drink that, then hit the snooze button. I normally didn't get to hear the second alarm because either the caffeine woke me up or nature calling would.)

Why I need it is self-explanatory. I'm a girl. Girls don't poop. Never. We fart glitter dust and rainbows, but we don't poop. But when I have guests, I want them to use this stuff so my home doesn't smell atrocious.

...I don't know, fly casual


If that's too expensive (I don't want to be greedy, but I thought it was funny):

  • $3.49 tennis balls for my dog!

    I need THOSE because my pup LOVES tennis balls, but sometimes she chews on them while I'm gone and they break. She's a big white husky, so she has a strong mouth. We always need replacements, and THESE ones SQUEAK!

    I'd post a video of her playing with them if I win!

Thanks! I'll check through those.

I was looking at this one until you said no glass tops.

u/amazingtaters · 2 pointsr/cigars

I've had 2 humidors (first one gave up the ghost to an empty glass dropped by a drunk person)

  • The Capri Glass Top. I actually really liked this humidor. Nothing super special mind you, but I did the job well enough.
  • Tabacalera Perdomo 20 Count. This guy was a bit cheaper, as my budget for replacement wasn't quite what I would have liked. Got it for a good price in a freefall deal on CigarBid. I've only had it a few weeks. So far no complaints really. It holds moisture well. Not as pretty as the capri, but such is life, right? For someone who feels like they're drowning in an ocean of tobacco at 20 cigars, it does just fine.
u/Sniperman · 2 pointsr/cigars

check out some other ones at amazon.

also keep in mind if you think a 10 count humidor is enough aim for at least a 20, the sticks add up fast.

you can also find some deals on imperfect humidors here

u/robotsongs · 2 pointsr/cigars

They're not that far between. And frankly, instead of the one you're pointing to, I would go for one of these instead(though there's no variety there, which seems to be what you're looking for...)

That $100 one you pointed to is kinda alright, but really, IMO the G2's and the Black pearls are really poor smokes. Like I couldn't finish the Pearls I've had and the G2 I smoked was finished only because it was going to be my last smoke for a week or two, so I wanted to savor every last moment. I definitely wouldn't go back.

If I was you, I would get a Bally 100-ct humidor or even this smaller Capri and then get a nice sampler from Famous-Smoke (who I find to have much better samplers) (or get one of CI's nicer samplers cheaper on

Something like one of the Famous Smoke Best of Samplers. From that bunch, I think the Best of Dominican, the Best of Medium Bodied or the Best of Full Bodied selections are pretty damn great. (Also check out the Best of Camaroon or Best of Habano samplers... good stuff in there. However, I have been enjoying this 2010 Awards Sampler from that has a wide selection of mild to full, small to big smokes. That might actually be a great starting place, though I really would recommend that, if you go with that one, you append it with a couple singles of Arturo Fuente Short Stories and a couple Padron 2000's in both natural and maduro.

Hope that helps. Typically, though, those humi+cigar deals are filled with house-brand filler smokes and it's not actually as good a deal as it seems. Your call.

I edited my price. My scumbag brain twisted the 5 and 7. Still is under $150 rounding up. If I look for those cigars on atlantic, and famous smoke or any site you get a reddit discount, easy to shave the price down. You can certainly get that humidor for next to nothing on amazon.

u/Faciem_Perfectionis · 2 pointsr/cigars

So I've been lurking here for a while, and recently purchased this humidor. Two things I was wondering about:

  • In the thread about cigar sins, I saw several people dissing glass top humidors... Why?
  • When I first got it, I was able to get it to about 70% humidity with just distilled water. I kept a shot glass full of it as well as having some on the sponge. However, now that I've got a bunch of cigars in there, humidity can't seem to get over 60%. Even if I add water all the time. Could this be because the heat is on/it's drier in my place, or am I looking at a bad seal? Or would I be able to resolve this with a better sponge/using the humidor solution? Not really sure how to check for the cause.

    Any help would be appreciated.
u/cozmanian · 2 pointsr/cigars

I almost ordered that one but ordered this instead:

It's probably on the same lines of quality but for my first one, I figured it wouldn't be too much out of my pocket if it ends up being crap. Currently I just calibrated the hygrometer and now it's sitting with a shot glass of water in it to season the cedar that's in it. If anything, might make a cool looking mod case for a mini-computer...

Toddler alarm clock! This is the one we got:

It glows green when they're allowed to get up. My daughter was waking up earlier and earlier, so we bought this for her. After a few days she learned that she couldn't get up until it was green and it was glorious.

u/raanne · 2 pointsr/Parenting

We just got an "ok to wake" alarm clock & night light. The nightlight has a timer on it (we set ours to 1 hour) and my son (almost 5) goes over and hits the button to turn it on if he wakes up and its dark. We just got this, but it gives him a level of control over the dark that seems to be helping him.

The other thing I saw that I am considering making with my son for a craft is this star-glow bottle - it uses hair gel, glow paint, and plastic glow in the dark stars, and will softly glow for an hour or so after they go to bed, and can be held by the child. By putting the stars in, it gives the child an activity (count the stars) to focus on which helps distract them.

u/nowhereian · 2 pointsr/Parenting

We have an Ok To Wake clock. They know not to leave their room in the morning (except to go potty) until the light turns green at 7:30.

That clock is my #1 priority on Sunday night. And we might let them stay up a little later too.

I don’t have any experience with this yet (LO is 6mo.), but I do have friends who have had great success with a light up clock for their toddler. They set it for the time that it’s okay for her to come out of her room/quiet time is over, and if she wakes up before then she plays with the stuffed animals in her room.

Good luck, and congrats on the addition to your family!

Mirari OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light

u/ColonelMatrix · 2 pointsr/parentsofmultiples

For the issue of older siblings getting up, we bought this:

When the light is green, you can get out of bed. If you get out before then you are sent back to bed. She only leaves her room the moment that light turns green.

u/Vodka_fruit · 2 pointsr/Parenting

OK to Wake clock. The clock turns yellow when it's time for bed and then green when it's okay to get out of bed. Great for the early birds come weekend times. We use it to have kiddo stay in bed an extra hour or so on the weekends cause he can wake at 630am no problem. We started using it at 5 years old for school, so we also use the actual alarm. He gets up just fine with it and gets ready for school mostly on his own. I personally hated (and still hate) being woken up by my parents (by my SO) vs an alarm and SS is so much like me I figured the alarm might be the best option. I'll try and leave a a Amazon link, if not you can Google OK to Wake.

Mirari OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light

u/Bmorehon · 2 pointsr/breakingmom

Maybe try an ok to wake nightlight? Might not stop the 4am wakeup right away, but it should help. My 12 month old is also down to 1 nap/day on the weekdays (takes 2 on weekends when we are at home) and goes down between 6:30 - 7 each night. We try not to get him out of his room until after 5 when we wake up, and his ideal wake time is 5:30. Unless he is screaming we don't go get him until 5. I also don't go to him in the middle of the night anymore unless I know he is sick or something. He settles back to sleep in like 5-10 minutes and then I'll go in, check his diaper and cover him back up while he is asleep. It's working for right now but as soon as he starts the 4am bullshit again, I'm buying that damn nightlight/clock thing!

u/kerida1 · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

We use this one
Mirari OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light
He accepted it pretty easily because he loved the light up and little smile the clock did. We set it to show him what to look for and when the light went on we did a little dance saying ooooo he is smiling and dancing ready to wake up! My neighbor has a 2.5 yr old and just had a baby and she uses an okay to wake too but hers changes the color for when it is time to wake. My kid likes it dark so the Mirari works great for him since it only lights up when it is time to get up.

Avoid screens for an hour before bed. I started that and it has been a huge help. Read a book (preferably dry/boring) or if you must use a screen install something like F.Lux to adjust the color temperature.

u/KestrelLowing · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I had really good experiences with a sunrise alarm clock. This specifically is the one I have, but I feel like it was a lot cheaper when I bought it, maybe only $60 at that point. Maybe I got it on sale.

Unfortunately, that alarm clock also wakes up my husband who doesn't need to get up for another hour, so I cannot use it now except on a really low setting. But when I lived alone, it was fantastic and I lived in Houghton, MI which is pretty damn far north (at least for North America) so the days were very short.

Also, I got a lot of daylight bulbs and used them in everything save the lamp I used at night. This also helped me stay more active.

u/permalias · 2 pointsr/Frugal

u/michiall06 · 2 pointsr/blogsnark

I swear by this alarm clock. It has made me actually get up right away, which I thought was impossible. The key for me was to set it far away, so I have to walk to it to turn it off. It gets so bright (you can adjust the settings on this) that distance does not matter. It also helps me wake up more gradually, so the sound of the alarm isn't so jarring. Another morning thing that has helped me is giving myself something to look forward to while I get ready -- like listening to my current audiobook. It is also nice to start the morning not feeling rushed or guilty about sleeping in. Remembering the positive feels it gives me has made a big difference!

There are alarm clocks made specifically for this purpose. Clock with dimming LEDs that can simulate sunrise and sunset on your schedule. I have the Philips version that was about $50 but there are numerous others on Amazon for around $30.

u/MercuryChaos · 2 pointsr/ADHD

>I'll sit and absentmindedly play with the Internet for way too long

Turn off your computer before you go to bed. Do not turn it on in the morning.

>Also, I will sometimes turn my alarm off without realising.

Put your alarm clock someplace that you can't reach from your bed. I have two alarms. One's on my phone, and the other is like this - not that exact one, but it's an alarm clock/lamp that turns on in the morning. I find that not having to stumble through the dark reduces the temptation to stay/get back into bed.

I also have a cat who needs to be fed in the morning. She's too polite to be useful as a backup alarm, but just knowing that she needs her breakfast gives me a little extra motivation to get out of bed. I'm not going to suggest that you get a pet, but if you already have one try feeding them in the morning.

>I do as much as I can the night before including finding my keys, shoes etc.

This is good.

>I'll be fully dressed, washed, fed and realise I'n ten minutes late because I've been watching YouTube videos or even just sat still obsessively thinking.

I set a series of alarms. 7:00 - wake up. 7:30 - eat breakfast. 8:00 - brush teeth. 8:30 - leave for work. I picked those things because they're the only things that I have to do in that order, but you can pick different ones, and you can set more alarms if you have to. Just figure out what time you have to leave for work to make it on time, and then set some alarms leading up to that time to keep you on track.

u/yeahright17 · 2 pointsr/news

Not sure if you saw this other guys post, but I have the same one.

u/GrizzlyManOnWire · 2 pointsr/funny
u/JulioCesarSalad · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I'm actually ordering a second one for my mom right now.

So let's say you're crazy like me and want to wake up at 5 am every day. You set the alarm for 5 am and go to sleep with plenty of time. This is only for health issues, obviously, but even if you go to bed at like midnight or 1 am it will still wake you up. You'll just be super tired thrgouhout the day.

So you set the alarm for 5. At 4:30, when you're nice and comfy in bed asleep the light on the alarm clock will come on. It's dim and gentle at first, but over the next half hour it will be slowly getting brighter and brighter.

By the time 5 am rolls around you have already been exposed to light for 30 minutes. A gentle alarm comes on and beeps to wake you up, and you're up! It;s pretty easy.

I like to combine this with Sleep Cycle as it gives me the best of both worlds and I like to take a look at my sleeping cycles.

You can buy the basic form of the alarm clock here, it's $50.

u/Imadeupmymind · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

u/mastersoup · 2 pointsr/technology

There isn't really.

They sent 3 different packages for the 8 frames. 1 had 4, 1 had 3, 1 had 1.

The fastest one of the packages arrived was 6 days from the date of the order (package of 3, 1 was broken), then 2 days later another came in (4, all fine) and the last one was sent back because it was broken somewhere along the line before it ever got to me. A replacement was eventually sent, but it came 4 days after the package of 4 came in.

Customer service was good and all, replacing the broken one was easy etc, but it was supposed to be 2 day shipping.

I'd say try it yourself, but they aren't actually in stock atm.

The frames situation is absolutely not typical, as I order from amazon a fuck load, and that is the only time something like that has happened. However, over 50% of my 2 day shipping packages arrive a day late, and again, my 2 attempts at 1 day shipping have both ended in failure, so I never use it anymore.

I printed a shit ton of maps out on my own printer and taped them together. It was a nightmare but it worked.

If you don't mind spending the money tossing a grid on top of a map together on a single file and the heading to your local print shop is your best bet. I was fortunate enough to have an architect friend print out 2 maps in black/white for 2 of the encounters (also in LMOP).

TBH the best thing ever has been using a dry-erase map with a premade grid. Now I'm able to draw basic designs out on the fly.

The ones I got are HERE

Definitely a worthwhile investment and the printed texture keeps it from being a boring white dry-erase.

u/Ryngard · 1 pointr/DnD

I've not found much luck... we learned that lesson too so no red pens. :)

I changed to the flipmat... it was SteelSquire when I got them oh... 12 years ago?... but I think it's Paizo now. They have multiple sizes, they are double sided (hex and squares) and fold to the side of a sheet of paper. You can use dry erase, wet erase, or permanent marker and it all cleans up.

Yeah here is an example. Its 24" x 30" for $15 and you can get ones MUCH larger. And they now have terrain ones and buildings and shit. It's neat.

(Paizo has a BUNCh but I'm not finding the larger one... I KNOW it used to exist but I guess not anymore unless I just can't find it. We've been using the 24"x30" for a year now and I've never had any issues (I have two so I can easily plunk another up there.)

This is cool though:

u/hariustrk · 1 pointr/rpg

I bought one of these at gencon, while practical the fold areas distract. Nice and compact if you don't have a lot of space, but for an everyday mapping tool, spend a few dollars more for a chessex mat( or the Piazo ones

u/Hunyock · 1 pointr/DnD

I used to play back in the day with the '79 basic red box, then 1e and then 2e - none of us had a grid and the one time we tried to use it, we hated it. I've been out of gaming since '91 and just came back into it with the release of 5e and I was prepared to ignore the whole grid combat thing again, but I've found that - for us - it really does add to the game.

We primarily use the Paizo flip mats ( because they are dry and wet erasable but regular whiteboards and dry erase markers would work good to. As other posters have mentioned, we use the grid for ambiance, relative positioning, visual reference, etc. and don't get bogged down into exact 5' measurements. We refer to things as in combat, able to close in 1 round, able to close in 2 rounds, etc. Whenever one of the players tries to count off squares and then looks sad when they come up one square short, I remind them I didn't draw the map with absolute precision so they shouldn't have to move with it! We just keep in mind the PC's relatives speeds - we have a Dwarf with a speed of 25, and a monk that between his racial traits and a feat has a ridiculous speed of 50 or something like that. So we're just careful to make sure the monk isn't "penalized" by skipping the grid.

For really big important battles, I print out a published battle map if one exists because the art work really is nice. We started out using glass tokens and dice to mark the characters and monsters, but since then we've picked up painted minis for the characters and printed out 1" tokens for the monsters.

Overall it really does help add in things like terrain, chokepoints, furniture, etc. into a battle. I'm a convert.

u/TroubledViking · 1 pointr/DnD

I use the Pathfinder Play-Mats, just the generic brown mat worked fine for me and it's wet/dry/permanent erase too. They also have themed maps (forest, hills, ship, tavern, etc) if that interests you but the basic brown/grey mat works great. This one is probably the most versatile for ~$20.

u/1bdkty · 1 pointr/DnD

You can definitely but I find its a bit harder and can lead to more arguments. For example, if everyone is on a grid map you can see where walls are, how far away from mobs you are, etc. If you use imagination someone will inevitable say "I thought I was behind the wall, how did they hit me" or "i wouldn't have run forward if I knew all the mobs were that close" or whatever.

The cheapest way to do maps is to get a reusable grid and some dry erase markers. It takes time to draw out the maps but its reusable and also very flexible. This pack uses square grids and has 4 different terrains (grassland, street, stone floor, and water)

What's your budget? This company will do it, but it's quite expensive: (click on the "Custom Mechanical Movement" tab).

If you can get by with a standard 18-note mechanism, I think you might be better off buying a cheap mechanism with a pre-installed tune (tons of these on eBay), and making a custom music roll for it. Maybe work with a jeweler.

There are also DIY kits for hand-cranked (not wind-up) mechanisms that use paper rolls:

You can do some neat math/music concepts this way, including mobius music.

u/solrael · 1 pointr/Anxiety

Maybe try a clocky? It might help if you have to get up to shut it off?

I still sleep pretty badly on lexapro, so getting up is more of 'oh god it's morning already?!?' Situation.

u/wafflestomp2014 · 1 pointr/AirForce

They spend so much to train you, it's true. There's an alarm you can buy for people like you. It has wheels and when it goes off it drives away so you have to get up to turn it off.

u/SillyBirdy123 · 1 pointr/AskReddit
u/blastedastronaut · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I have [Clocky] (! I absolutely love it. Even when I don't want to get up, he's rolled away and I can only stand the noise for so long.

u/snorlaxbubba · 1 pointr/ADHD

I’m sorry this happened. It’s a too frequent occurrence with me too.

I’m getting better at this, but before it got so bad that I accidentally trained my girlfriend to silence alarms while sleeping. Just because I would set so many and never wake up, she would turn them off for me but it got to the point where she wouldn’t wake up to them anymore, knowing I would just turn them off and go back to sleep. And choose sleep over chores i needed to do around the house. (I work evenings so I don’t have this problem)

Here’s some things that helped me the last few months

  1. Don’t give yourself room to doubt. Vision yourself waking up to the alarm, when you’re setting your alarm write it down in person and a note in your phone that you WILL wake up to the alarm.

    If that doesn’t work...

  2. There are alarm apps you can get that require you to solve problems in order to turn off the alarm

    If that doesn’t work...

    Ask a friend to call or text you until you get up. Make sure if it’s a text, you call them once your up so they know you are conscious.

    If that doesn’t work...

    Our minds are trained in a funny way. If you ever realize your mind going into auto pilot while driving a familiar route and not remembering part of the drive (how many red lights you could have driven through). Or even just how time goes by faster every year. Our minds reduce the interpreting work load if it is familiar with it. That being said, this can also happen with alarms. Setting the same alarm noise at the same time every day, your brain anticipates it, going into autopilot, it’ll turn the alarm off without even properly waking you up.
    -set different alarm tones. Choose ones that really annoy you/don’t care about.
    -set alarms at different times everyday
    -when you go to set an alarm. Set it to around the time you want but don’t actually look at the last number, so your brain doesn’t subconsciously know when the alarm is going off.

    There are alarms (kinda expensive) (Clocky Alarm Clock on Wheels in Aqua that make you get up to turn the alarm off.

    Ok! So!

    With all these tips - the BEST thing you can do if any of these work, is to make sure you get into the habit of waking up to them. If it works for 4 days, change it up, make a goal for the next 4, then change it etc until your brain will no longer just silence alarms as it did before.

    there will still be days where you sleep through the alarms. But it won’t be nearly as many

    I hope this helps ❤️

    And that you didn’t get fired over this.

I've destroyed (unintentionally) more than 10 alarm clocks throughout HS to college.

A coworker gave me a clock with wheels on it, it was a gag gift but it worked:

It does one thing well, it makes sure you stay awake!

I would personally recommend just going to bed early. Making a set bed time will help your body establish a sleep schedule.

u/starsspanthesky · 1 pointr/Advice

Maybe this guy can help. Also make sure your diet is well and you're drinking enough water. Are you getting enough sleep? Too much sleep? You could also see a sleep specialist to check for things like apnea which will decrease the hours of sleep you get per night, making it difficult to wake up.

u/writhena · 1 pointr/Fitness

i set 2 alarms. my phone goes off and i always hit snooze. like you i sometimes do it in my sleep. 9 minutes later it goes off again. if i hit snooze again, then a minute later, my alarm clock goes off. its really loud and i have to get up to turn it off. it really helps to have to get up to turn off the alarm because you definitely have to wake up. you could put the alarm clock all the way across the room and just crank up the volume.

you could even get something like this - an alarm clock on wheels. you'd have to chase it across the house. :)

also, some people actually sleep in their workout clothes to help them get moving.

good luck, getting up so early is really hard.

Can I recommend you buy some "poo pourri" for the shared bathroom? You do a few sprays in the toilet before you poop and it honest to god stops the scene of poop (by forming an oil over the surface so the smell doesn't leak out). Give it a try and avoid the issue going forward.

u/SenorCeeb · 1 pointr/cigars

I got one identical to this one. It looks nice for sure, however I find it seriously leaks contrary to the “sureseal” technology. From some of the reviews people written, some people suspect the leak is due to the hydrometer not being sealed properly. I’d buy the used one if I were to re-buy this product.

u/MagicallyMalificent · 1 pointr/WhatsInThisThing

Well, sort of, but a humidifier is generally used to humidify a whole room or something, and a humidor is specifically for keeping and/or aging cigars. Here's a good example of one. They can vary in size though. That's more on the small end, but I've seen whole rooms rigged as humidors.

u/Spoonthetoast · 1 pointr/cigars

Wow! I'm seasoning it with a shot glass filled with distilled water. The instructions say do it for a day. Will my cigars last in a ziplock if I Gould do it for 3 days? This is the humidor I have for reference:

u/jmurphy42 · 1 pointr/Parenting

Boy, that's rough.

In our house we hold the line on getting out of bed or TV at night. Night time is for sleeping, period, no exceptions. I suspect he's more likely to try to stay awake if he knows doing something fun is an option.

Another thing that helped us, and might help you with nighttime wakings, was figuring out that our daughter had a really hard time understanding when it was morning/OK for her to get up. We blacked out her room because the slightest hint of sunlight made it impossible for her to sleep (which was rough in the summer when it was still light at bedtime and got bright before she ought to be waking). I mean, total blackout - we covered her windows with tin foil and covered that with blackout curtains. Then we gave her a clock similar to this one that lights up green when it's OK for her to get up in the morning. Overnight it made a huge difference.

u/amyhansen90 · 1 pointr/Mommit

Thank you for your comments! You must be exhausted!
Sleep is actually my expertise and I hope to talk a lot about pediatric sleep in my blog.

Just to offer some suggestions, if your child is struggling with falling asleep there are a few options that you can try.

  1. Have you ever considered a pediatric sleep specialist? They can help you identify why your little one is struggling to fall asleep at night. If you wanted, I would be more than happy to talk to you about your local options. There can be a TON of reasons as to why little ones do not fall asleep at night, and they are easily fixed with the help of a specialist.
  2. As your kiddo gets older I would recommend an OK To Wake Clock. What we find is that children struggle with the concept of time. The OK to Wake light changes color to let them know that it's okay to get up and get Mommy in the morning. Here is a link:

    Hopefully these options can increase your sleep time!
u/marbleavengers · 1 pointr/IFParents

Here's one I've read about on the parent listserv: There are a few out there, same general concept, and I'll add them if I can remember their names.

Ha here's another for 60 freaking dollars but the reviews are very positive:

u/edgeofchaos183 · 1 pointr/toddlers

I got the Ok to Wake clock on sale at Target. It has worked pretty well so far. My LO knows not to get up until the bug is green. The only downside is that it turns off after half an hr so if he sleeps longer then he will yell instead of poking the button to see the time. Amazon has a ton of different options depending on function and budget. I just wanted something to light up when it was ok to get up but not sound an alarm. This is the one we have.

u/kathog · 1 pointr/Parenting

I don't usually follow \r\parenting but my husband saw your post and suggested I respond. I can hear myself in you sometimes.

I can relate to where you're coming from. I have a daughter with Sensory Processing Disfunction. She. doesn't. stop. moving. EVER. and no. It's not normal 2 year old behavior. (I am so tired of hearing that.) She is so busy busy busy she was having trouble learning speech. She tested as a 15-18 mo when she was 24 mo. It also doesn't help that I'm an enabler. I gave her whatever she needed before she would have to ask. I also have some ongoing health issues that make me fatigued from time to time which makes parenting an active child a challenge.

There's a ton of good advice in the comments so far. I agree with you needing to work on you first. It's super important for you to get the help you need to be mentally capable to raise your son. Kids are hard. Even harder if you're struggling with health issues.

My advice is going to focus on your son since you've gotten so much advice for you. First I need to say, good for you for getting him involved in EI! That's a huge step. Now you need to make sure you're using them to their full potential. I'm going to base most of my assumptions that you're in the US. If not, some of the advice won't fit.

I sincerely hope that your son is getting Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy, maybe even Developmental Therapy for the social issues. It sounds like he definitely needs it. Because my daughter was so delayed in speech, they were able to give her Speech, OT and Developmental Therapy. I'm in the state of IL. I'm not sure if your state works the same way. They have helped her so much even in 6 short months.

We too are already talking about pre-school. That in and of itself is super scary. It's hard to acknowledge your baby is growing up! She's getting evaluated by the school district in June. Has your EI coordinator talked to you about when your testing will be? The school district will do their own set of tests and create a IEP (Individualized Education Plan) for him.

(One thing I just thought of... Make lists of questions so when you're talking to people like the OT or Speech or EI or docs, you've got something to refer to and don't have to try to remember. When you're not feeling yourself, it's especially hard to be on the ball.)


Routines have been a huge help for my daughter and I. I am naturally a person that needs to know what's coming next. I hate surprises (although I'm getting better about it as I get older). The biggest thing is nap time. For us, nap time actually starts about 30-45 min before I want to put her down. I try to do it at the same time every day. Because she is so physically active, I have to make sure we do some "heavy work" at least 45 min before I want to put her to sleep. For her it is typically jumping on her trampoline. She also has a small wagon I brought inside that I fill with bean bags for her to pull around. After the heavy work, she gets a 30 min TV show. Then diaper change and a book. We were having some trouble with her laying down after we switched to a toddler bed. We bought a clock that lights up. It took about 2 weeks of being super consistent (and listening to her screaming) but she now doesn't need it at nap time any more. We still have it set in the morning. Momma needs her sleep!

Heavy Work

Heavy work is super important for kids with sensory issues. I would think it would help any child that is overly active. They love that feeling of being pulled to the earth. My LO loves being smushed and squeezed. When I give her a hug, I make sure its extra squeezy. :)

We have one of those houses with 2 dining rooms (why are there 2? I have no idea). One of them has been turned into an indoor playground for my daughter. The winter was so brutal that I needed ways for LO to get out her energy. She's got a trampoline, balls, sit-in-spin, and rocking horse. If you have the space, maybe you could include some of these for your son.


For my LO, we started signing with her once we realized there was a problem after her initial testing. It was a couple of months before she started Speech Therapy through EI and we were trying to be pro-active. We found the TV show "Signing Time". I don't know what it is about this show, but for my daughter it seemed like it opened the floodgates. She was suddenly saying new words while she was doing the signs. It was a miracle for us. They have a few clips up on YouTube. We bought the DVD sets from their website but you can see if your local library has them or something like them.


For us, consistency is key. There are always tantrums when I try to implement anything new and sometimes they happen over things that we've been doing for ages. This is the part that goes with being 2. But at the same time, I feel like it's typically a little extreme. Mostly because she knows she should be able to tell me what she wants but can't. It's hard but you have to try to be strong. One thing to think about is if you want things to continue as they are. A week of tantrums to get him to sit at the table to eat like a normal child is worth it to me.

Good luck. Feel free to PM if you need any more advice. Just know that there are people here willing to help and support you.

u/jporegon · 1 pointr/ADHD

If you wake up before the sun is up consider buying a wake up light like this (it helps fool your brain into waking up naturally)
Go to bed at about the same time every night if you can- consider taking melatonin (especially if you are taking meds for ADHD). You can buy it at just about any grocery store. I have five kids, two with ADHD like me and the melatonin "knocks them out" safely in about 30 minutes. A good night's rest can be the key to waking up on time.
If you don't sleep well because your mind is racing about what you have to do the next day then write yourself a brief to-do list to remind you. Then tell your brain not to worry and get some rest. Consider meditation before bed as well to help you fall asleep.

Last, if worst comes to worst, find work that fits you - not the other way around. Some jobs can be very flexible about when you show up. Also, consider talking to your boss about your condition, see if you can offer something to compensate:
Boss, I have to accept that I am who I am and I'm probably going to be a little late sometimes. But, once I am here I will give 110% and stay late every day to balance out the time - if it is ok.

best of luck!

If you're gonna use music, for the love of god, make it a large playlist. Easiest way to start hating a song is to make it your alarm.

I switched to using a Wake Up Light. Because of my schedule I usually get 5-6 hours of sleep a night. Couple that with an abrupt wake up from an alarm I felt tired until I got my morning caffeine fix.

With the light it feel like I'm waking up late morning after sleeping in on a Saturday....but everyday!

Second this. The light doesn't wake me up but it does make it a lot harder to get back to sleep once the alarm goes off.

I think this is about the cheapest one you'll find:

That's what I have, but honestly I think $70 is a bit much for something with basically no other features. Watch for it to go on sale, as it occasionally drops to around $50.

I have this exact same problem. So as of right now the way that I barley wake up is... I have one crap alarm clock that I would toss in a heartbeat but its noise so whatever. I have another alarm clock called the sonic boom (you can get it on amazon). It has a vibrating piece that you can put under your mattress but it didn't do a ton so i put it under my pillow. The problem with that was I would angrily smash my alarm clock and wake up with an instant headache lol. So i put both alarm clocks across my room on the dresser and I leave that vibrating piece on my wood floors for the loudest most obnoxious noise you'll ever hear. I was getting out of bed and turning them off, not conscious enough to make the right decision so the last thing I added has been a life saver. Go to the app store on your phone and download Alarmy. You can set it to do math problems to turn off the alarm. I currently have to do 12 math problems to wake up. It's like 98 + 67, nothing too complicated but enough to make you never want to fall back asleep lol. Also the other thing I am going to get next is a wake up light that mimics natural sunlight. So say you set your alarm for 0430 like I do, at 0415 it gradually gets brighter until its brightest setting at 0430.

I have a entry-level one. It's a Phillips. I think it cost around $50. This is the Amazon listing for it

u/Dicebar · 1 pointr/ADHD

I had to go through insomnia therapy before my psychologist was willing to start on a diagnosis of ADHD, since sleep deprivation has similar symptoms. I don't have any experience dealing with Adderall, but I can share some more of the advice I was given.

  • Don't stay in bed for over 8 hours. (You're already not doing that, but for a complete list.)
  • Don't sleep in more than 1 hour extra on your off days. (Suffer, mortal! I still do this. It sucks. It helps so much. And it sucks so much.)
  • Use a wake up light if you have trouble waking up (like this).


    My SO does use Adderall (not XR, but still), from her list:

  • Continue with the weed, it helps.
  • Consider taking melatonin an hour before bedtime.

Phillips Wake-up light alarm clock.

u/steve_z · 1 pointr/news

Not the parent, but I have this one and it's extremely helpful for getting me out of bed so damn early.

Just search "sunlight alarm clock" for more.

Also... when I'm getting up before my fiancee, she just wears an eye mask to bed.

u/_icebear · 1 pointr/insomnia

Here's what I use. I just got it last week but so far I really like it! It has a sunrise/alarm setting, and different brightness levels for the clock so you can make it just barely visible at night.

What I'm still struggling a bit with is creating a dark environment before bed! But I'm getting better at that.

u/PistolPete33 · 1 pointr/BruceSpringsteen

How about a framed vinyl record? You can get record frames (for wall hanging) pretty cheaply and put a vinyl album or two in one. I have three myself.

u/The_Shmef · 1 pointr/TheFence

You can get them with a custom-cut mat like that here. I'd probably just go with one of those, or search for "LP Frame with mat" and browse as you like!

I think any vinyl purchased on that day got signed. At first it was the first 50 but later I think they said the whole day. Not sure tho!

And I'm thinking about buying one or two of these off amazon

Golden State Art, 12.5x12.5 inches...

these are the two frames. the one that holds the cover and vinyl kinda sucks as it doesn’t hold either in place so i had to tape the crap out of it to make it stay and the back doesn’t clip on very well so it’s maybe search for something else.

u/This_is_my_box · 1 pointr/Hamilton

You could be right about the custom matting. There is this one from Amazon which is exactly what I'm looking for, with a decent price too. I'm just worried it'll arrive damaged.

u/Mighty-HeaIthy · 1 pointr/travisscott
u/JimboLodisC · 1 pointr/vinyl

Really? What about this one

And do they not allow you to buy from the USA Amazon? I order stuff from Amazon UK from time to time and I live in the States.

u/falczone · 1 pointr/FrankOcean
u/ItsSnow · 1 pointr/Flume

I shopped alot and to get a good quality one, it got to be hand made. So for now i used this frame


It is really easy assemble, there is a cut out inside so you just place the Jacket/LP and boom. It seems to hold double LP as well so no probleme there. The quality is nice and durable if you take care of it (For what it's worth).

u/sound_apples · 1 pointr/vinyl

I have purchased several of these . They look great and are glass and wood.

u/eirtep · 1 pointr/barstoolsports

I had a bunch of records in college that I didn't take care of. I gave most away when I graduated or lost them.

I recently bought a record and this frame which looks very nice in my room. Got the one with the record showing cause it's red. Thinkin about buying some more to display. I like the large artwork and it feels more 'adult' than music posters and it's often the same price or cheaper to buy a record+frame than a poster and frame.

For the same reason as the large record art I love Laser Discs movies but I don't actually have any

u/1x33397 · 1 pointr/DIY

Fair point, but I find that the sheer amount of space action bases take up isn't very judicious - I was thinking of something like this but maybe closer to where I live (New Zealand)

u/aburningman · 1 pointr/amiibo

I like these clear acrylic stands, the 12-inch version is a good size for all but the largest amiibo, which I just put on the top shelf. I purchased some from a more expensive brand, but later found these ones that seem to be pretty much identical:

They'd look good on any shelf IMO, but as the reviews state, they're a perfect complement for Ikea detolf or similar standing glass display cases and fill out the available vertical space in there amazingly well.

The link is for the 12" for $20, and you can also get a 9" for $16.
Also ships with prime, I bought one 12" for the top, & two 9" ones for inside the shelf.

u/Red__Rain77 · 1 pointr/AnimeFigures
u/openshutter · 1 pointr/funkopop

Oh man, all sorts of possibilities! You could go with the tried and true method of stacking the Pop boxes themselves and using those. This post for example, you can see OP used them as tiered stands on the bookshelves. Probably cheapest option since the boxes come with the Pops, most of the time.

After that, you can try buying plastic/acrylic risers. Amazon and the container store have these available most of the time, Amazon having more sizing options. Most people use the clear acrylic ones with their detolf glass cases from ikea. But they’re definitely not limited to just those cases

After that you can try making your own out of foam board. The stuff is pretty cheap at Micheal’s or Walmart and with one sheet, I think you can make ~2 stands. This was the guide I followed. Didn’t use her exact measures, but more so as a template. I’ve got 2 two tiered stands I made from this method.
Hope this helps some!

u/StarWarsFever · 1 pointr/funkopop

oh cool--this is the one i's only 12" wide. I like the option of an 18" wide one. Thanks!

u/TWRogue · 1 pointr/amiibo

Here! I got the 12 x 8.5.

u/LucyMcCat · 1 pointr/Gunpla

If you've got a detolf, I found that this stand fills a shelf really well- you can get 12-15 HGs on there.

u/Kudoii · 1 pointr/AnimeFigures
u/Tenelli · 1 pointr/AnimeFigures

I'm using a detolf with these. Can get 5 per step and another row in front on Detolf shelf for a total of 20 Nendoroids per shelf.

u/The_Window · 1 pointr/funkopop

And some risers too so you can see em all. Based on the amount of POPs you have lined up, I'd say to get this one. I use these but that's cause I have one of those cube organizers. Check out the customer images on both pages to get an idea of what to expect.

u/miyari · 1 pointr/AnimeFigures

I have Detolfs and I buy these for three-step risers.

Here is a photo.

I also have this set of 3 individual risers. It looks like they're slightly bigger than the ones you linked.
