Kill A Watt

This is pretty cool! With this meter, you can monitor how much power your appliances use. This would be great for doing an experiment testing different lightbulbs, comparing a regular applience with an "energy star" version, and more.
Kill A Wat Electricity Usage Monitor - connect appliances to the Kill A Wattâ„¢, and it will assess how efficient they really are.

Hot Sauce Kit

In college, I lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While there, I learned to appreciate a fine hot sauce...and the difference between red and green chili. I also learned that I prefer flavor intensity over hotness. That's probably why this Build your own Hot Sauce kit caught my attention.

Kitchen Science & Cookbooks

Two great books for any foody, especially the scientifically inclined foody:

Coffee Cards

I love Peet's coffee, and I just had to order a sampler...to test out the affiliate system. I'm loving the coffee! There's a Peet's over the hill from me, so paying for shipping is wasteful. But I still want to benefit GalaxyGoo. Happily, Peet's has a Card program, so I can just buy a reloadable card and benefit GalaxyGoo with my local purchase.

Are you lucky enough to have a Peet's nearby? Order, or reload, your own Peet's card through our affiliate link:
