QR codes are about to make your social media life easier. Get customers to check-in at your business by displaying an attractive QR code for them to scan while they wait in your reception area. It’s a neat idea. Who knows they might even be tempted to review your company on Google+. Other uses are to provide the WiFi access code to grant access to the internet. This is definitely an idea we want to try at CableOrganizer.com, it would be really cool to try it with a label printer.

#measure2-cut1 refrigerator measuring for your home

The number 1 reason refrigerator’s are returned back to the store is because it doesn’t fit the space at home.

 

How to avoid this mistake? Here are the questions you must answer before going out to buy a refrigerator

1. Measure twice, buy once

2. Mark out any restricting obstacles, larger fridges have a wider door swing while double door side-by-side refrigerators have narrower doors.

3. How much space do you need? Is Energy saving a priority? What about a Water and Ice Dispenser? Will you need door bins sized for gallon milk jugs?

4. And most importantly, an easy delivery and return option offered by the store.

Why barbershops are important

Barbershops are important because they talk you out of these catastrophes!

#measure2-cut1 Facial Hair barbershop

 

Measure Twice, Cut Once. Unless it’s Halloween or Pirate day, Use a barber.

Ask the experts #measure2-cut1: Getting it right. According to The Art of Manliness  Sculpting your beard is best left in the hands of a professional barber rather than the cute hairdresser at Supercuts. They’ll do things with an electric number 2 razor – like taper the lines, and shape the chin and advise you whether you should keep the cheeks shorter than the goatee area.

All things I don’t understand, but if you have a beard and a social life – they are vitally important. Go to the place that understands manly follicles best – The American Barbershop.
