Stuff We Like: Eyeglasses Wax Has Changed My Life

This month, I’m featuring some products that have made my life easier, or better, in the past few weeks. First, and foremost, I want to thank my scanner for being the most useful thing as I seek reimbursement for the many expenses incurred after Southwest melted down over the holidays. (So. Many.
