Cube is a small, lightweight device that can attach to anything you want found, such as car keys, dogs, cats, kids, and luggage.

- Blue Yeti USB Microphone for $100
With most people working from home, home-office equipment is in high demand.
Deals on professionally-sounding microphones are rare, but Amazon does have this Blue Yeti in Black for $100.
Most stores sell this mic for about $130.
It connects to a USB port on a PC or Mac, and provides better audio quality that on-laptop microphones, earpods, and headsets.
This version is bundled with Ghost Recon Breakpoint for PC, a nice free bonus.
It's a popular microphone for home offices and postcasters.
Some people sell their used Blue Yeti microphones (not the Nano) for about $80 on Ebay, so $100 new with 2-year warranty is a great deal.
We use the larger 32oz bottles for our everyday water drinking bottles, and they are quite nice.
The lid can be fully closed without risk of leaks, the bottle is durable from drops, and the built-in hook makes carrying easier.
The larger 32oz bottles sell for about $8-9.

The 10,000mAh capacity is capable of fully charging most phones 3 times.

- Oral-B 8000 Electric Toothbrush for $100
Oral-B 8000 Electric Toothbrush for $100, available in choice of color.
Battery lasts for 14-days of use, and includes a USB charging case.
We like Oral-B's spin brush head which does a great job at cleaning teeth and the spaces between.
Philips Sonicare is also a popular choice and recommended by our dentist, and can run cheaper than an Oral-B, and also works far better than a regular toothbrush.
- Handheld Luggage Scale for $8.40
It's one of the cheapest luggage scales on the market, and works well.
We bought one of these before flying on an airline with strict baggage limits.
Most airlines limit checked luggage to 50 pounds (23 kg), and some international airlines (many in the pacific) have a strict 15 pound (7 kg) limit on carry-on bags.
To avoid hefty penalties while traveling, this handheld scale can measure the weight of luggage to help pack within limits before arriving at the airport.
Beware, to use this handheld scale, you must possess the strength to lift the weight of the luggage.
Say your luggage weighs 45 pounds, you must strap the scale to the luggage handle and lift the 45 pound bag off the ground and hold it steady for about 4 seconds to get an accurate weight measurement.
Speaking of international travel, Amazon sells a carry-on luggage with 4 wheels for $55 that conforms to most reduced carry-on size limits enforced by many international airlines.
Alternatively, Samsonite and TravelPro do sell 2-wheel bags at this size, but if you want 4 wheels, the Amazon bag is one of the only options for an international-compatible carry-on.

- 6-Pack Magnet Hooks for $10
Hook-shaped magnets stick to any metallic surface like filing cabinets, fridgerators, and hold a lot of weight.
Some reviewers say the hooks do not hold the 25 pounds as advertised, but can still hold a lot.
- 4-Pack Colgate Toothpaste for $6
4-pack of Colgate Total Whitening Toothpaste (4.8oz each) for $6.21.
