    Wow! Some of these are pretty cool! I love the crock pot one since most of the time I use it is when I am at work. Good to know I can shut it off if need.
    Our family just bought this really cool tech gadget for our shower. It is a device that is used in the shower call the Shower Manager. It cuts water flow by 2/3 after a preset time of 5, 8 or 11 minutes. Saves us hundreds every year on our water bill and get the kids our of the shower fast!
