What Did You Get for The Holidays?

The Holiday are over, your dogs and cats have unwrapped an assortment of goodies including toys, sweaters for those in a cold climate, new leashes, harnesses, scratching posts, a myriad of goodies just made for our companions. But what did you get? Socks? Sweaters? Cologne or After Shave that makes you nauseous (been there)? While our dogs and cats can't shop for themselves, we can. Between opposable thumbs and credit cards, you just add a computer and you're good to go. You can get that one thing that you would love that could make life easier.

I tell you what I have and you're going to want one, too.  I have a KeySmart. If you're wondering what that is, you're probably not alone since it's such a new product. It's an ingenious little thing that you won't want to be without. If you're like me you have a collection of keys that are bulging in your pocket. It's not fun for anyone, man or woman, to deal with that clunky mess. KeySmart is a clever invention. It's not just a key holder but it holds them in one, small holder, rather like a Swiss Army Knife for keys, that slips into your pocket.

Imagine how handy this is when you're out walking the dog. Or going into the show ring with your dog or the cat ring with your cat. No bulging pocket, no jangling keys if you move them so they're not stabbing into you. Just a blissfully small holder into which all your keys fit. If you, like me, have an inordinate number, not to worry. You can get an extender to fit all of those keys neatly into the case.

They come in a myriad of colors. Mine is Red.  I really love it! You can have Black, Pink, Blue, Green, well, you get the idea. And there are add-ons if you want them, like a lanyard or a fob. The KeySmart itself is the size of a regular package of chewing gum. 

You can see the difference between your jumble of keys on a key chain and your keys held, well, smartly in a KeySmart. 

It's a terrifically handy thing to have and a great way to start getting organized in the New Year. It's a great gift to give yourself, family members, and friends. A special occasion or no occasion at all.  It would also make a super trophy to win at a dog or cat show or dog sport competition. It's a lot more useful than a plate. Yes, I have that, too. 

You can find KeySmart at their website with how-to videos and a wide range of KeySmarts, extenders, etc.  Just point your computer to:  http://getkeysmart.com

What a great idea and, yes I'm sure we have all experienced the problem of a bunch of keys stabbing us, not to mention creating holes in our pockets.
Thank you for sharing and enjoy the benefits of your new "toy".
