Shredding Money and the CUTEST 2 Year Old

Did I catch your attention there? Hope so, because there is something I just discovered that is SO brilliant that I would be a straight-up criminal not to share it with you.

But first, a quick back-story: I don't usually get up when my alarm goes off. Never have. That's the back-story.

K. Let's fast-forward to last week when my daughter heard Jonathan and I trying to problem-solve (yet again) our lack of willpower when it comes to getting out of bed in the morning. She told us that she'd heard of an alarm clock that shreds money. Yes... it shreds money. Or at least it threatens to, because actually shredding money is illegal, who knew?

It's like this: you put a dollar bill (or a larger one!) in it, set your alarm, and it activates 2 minutes later to shred whatever's sitting in its teeth. 😂 Brilliant.

Sadly, there is no such thing, but we figured out a hack. We got a little desktop shredder and a digital outlet timer and set up the whole thing easy peasy. Here's how it works:

  1. I slide the dollar (or higher) bill into the shredder before I go to bed.
  2. My alarm goes off at 5:00 a.m. the next morning
  3. The shredder turns on at 5:02 a.m.

I keep the shredder downstairs, so my morning now consists of me FLYING out of bed to pull the money out of the shredder before it turns on. Hahaha. It's awesome.

K. Thought you should know about that. Now... do you want to see the CUTEST 2 year old??? She was amazing... enjoy!!!
