We all have special gadgets that we use for one thing or another. I have a T-handled Titanium potato peeler in my kitchen that dates back to the 1990s. You could not convince me to trade it for a traditional peeler. I have a bread-slicing guide that folds and hides in a cabinet until I need it to cut evenly spaced slices in homemade bread. Gadgets make life easier, whether for the kitchen, the garage, or bagging fallen leaves in the yard.

Tired of trying to get all the toothpaste out of your tube? These handy tube squeezers are just what you need.

They allow you to get almost every last drop out of a tube rather than throwing it out due to frustration.
