Why didn’t I think of that?

why didnt I think of that tiny

Wouldn’t it be nice to be one of those people. You know the ones. They have just one idea they stumble upon, sometimes by chance and they bank their everything on and turn it into a successful business. Like Hegs.

A product invented by a guy who was hanging out the washing one day (I know, I was shocked too). He didn’t know how to hang his wife’s dress and thought, wouldn’t it be cool if this peg had a hook on it! And so Hegs was born.

I’ve come across a few products like this recently that are so clever, handy and rather life changing and they always have me thinking, why didn’t I think of that?!

So here’s 8 genius, game changers from the “Why didn’t I think of that” files. Do let me know if you have any to add to the list.

1. Hair tie bracelet

2. Fine Wine ordered by the glass delivered in vials. Yes please!

3. Speaking of wine, someone totally needs to invent this… and call it Mrs Whippy’s Wine!

4. Invented by a group of nurses, this skin to skin csection drape is such a great invention!

5. Spray on nail polish. Genius!

6. Universal sippy cup lids. I could have really used these a couple of years ago.

7. Finger biscuits

8. Kabost Portable Chair Booster. Again, a few years too late for us, but super cool idea!

  1. So many great ideas! I’ve inadvertently used the hair-band as bracelet invention quite a lot… but love the dipping biscuit. Far more socially acceptable than sticking one’s finger in others’ jars!

  2. I’ve been looking at that Hegs website and I still have NFI how they work. Kudos to anyone who can come up with clever inventions though. I wish my brain came up with useful shit like that. Instead of sarcasm.

  3. I think you have just changed my life – love the hair tie bracelets, and am off to see if I can order that spray on nail polish right now!!!!! I could say that it’d make a great gift for Miss 19 for Christmas but who am I kidding, I’d end up keeping it ;-)

    1. Oh let me know if you do buy it Janet! I’m so curious as to what its like. It would be a perfect pressie for Miss 19… as long as she let you ‘borrow’ it! xx

  4. I have as close to the Mrs Whippy’s WIne Van as possible come around our Caravan Park. Our Mrs Whippy comes and gives me shaved ice with lemon flavouring for $2.00 and while I am putting the kids to bed I just add a little dash of vodka and Bob’s my drunk uncle! Mel xx

  5. Hair tie bracelet – genius! I wish I thought of the self-sealing water bomb balloons that are out at the moment. They are so clever and save a heap of time. Count me in for the wine truck. I did see last year someone had invented a leather strap wine bottle holder for bicycles. Very stylish!

    1. Oh yes.. since seeing them on your blog, those water bomb thingo’s are everywhere. We’ve tried them and they are awesome!
      Great stocking stuffer! xx

  6. Oh so clever but so easy enough to come up with!!! Hair tie bracelets!! I love it it! Hegs!!!! Oh my days! I’m an ideas girl for sure but usually Farmer just smirks and says “oh yeah” to all my big brain ideas. Like….. An alarm can go off right, then a trepez bar comes down from your roof. You hang on and it hoists you up, then wa la! You’re out of bed! bahahaha! I’ve been holding that idea for awhile xx
