Wire Snakes Keep Your Cords Together!

If you read the blog often, you know I am always on the look out for anything that organizes cords or hides them away- I cannot stand looking at them all over the house!

These “wire snakes” look perfect for the job!

Five colors available: Blue, Red, Gray, Orange and White, 630 yen each!

Alarm Clock That Forces You to Work Out!

This may be my favorite annoying alarm clock from Japan (I LOVE arm exercises 😉

In order to make it stop, you must do some lifting, at least EIGHT bicep curls are required!
Comes in red, white and black, only 2980 yen for a great, original gift!

The many, many FUN alarm clocks from Japan:

We have Gun O clock– an alarm that does not go off until you do some target practice
A flying alarm clock– catch it, or else it screeches (perhaps THE most annoying one…)
A Grenade– throw it against wall to turn off

Order any of the alarm clocks via Rinkya Stores
