Pair of insoles
This theme for this month’s Cairn is “everyday, optimized”.

Upmatic Insoles

These trim-to-fit replacement insoles feature little cushy bumps along the bottom that aren’t supposed to wear out over time, plus anti-microbial odor resistance.

Insole bottom close up
I had recently started in on my next pair of Oboz Sawtooth boots and hadn’t changed the stock insole yet so I popped these in.

The Upmatics had a nice cushion to them but lacked enough arch support for my picky feet so I pulled them out and plan to use them when I need to replace the insole in my treadmill sneakers.

(Bonus footwear tip: Really like a pair of boots etc? I scoop up extra pairs on sale so I have the next one ready when my current starts to wear out. Saves money AND I don’t have to play “Boot Search” as often.)Natural soap in twist-up container

Twin Springs Soap

All natural soap in a deodorant style twist-up container to be outdoor/camping or travel-friendly. Smells good and is only lightly scented and not overpowering. 

Wallet tool

Nite Ize Financial Tool Card

Credit card sized stainless steel multi-tool with 9 tools: bottle opener, 5 standard wrench sizes, flathead + phillips screwdriver/tape cutter, scraper, protractor + drafting compass, and metric + standard ruler.

This disappeared off my desk before I really got to look at it. I figured one of our kitties had decided to swat it to the floor like everything else in the house but turns out Tom had already stuck it in his wallet.

It fit fine into his very thin minimal wallet. I’m not sure how much he’ll actually use it, but it is neat. 

Energy Bar

IQ Bar

Energy bar with “brain nutrients” and plant protein that is low in sugars and carbs, keto friendly. Haven’t tried it yet.
