I always misplace stamps. But I realized that I only ever need them when I'm mailing someone a check. So I store them in the checkbook now.

checkbook and stamps lifehack

Simple but effective. :-)

My problem is that I always misplace the checkbook. Hmmm maybe I'll put a pocket on the laptop, which I rarely lose.

I must claim prior art on that: I have been doing that for years :)

It's good thing I didn't file a patent then, huh? :-)

Really? You still have a checkbook? :) I'm sure my wife carries one but with electronic banking, I think we hardly ever write a check anymore.

I never said I wrote a lot of checks. But when I do, I need stamps. :-)

What good would that do? My address is already public record, thanks to the FAA.

g-damn.... i'm glad i don't live there.
i got nearly the same stats on a house in NC (near RTP) for $130k.
Of course, your house has increased by that amount in the last year.

I thought silicon valley bigwigs could keep themselves out of the public FAA database? At least, I can't find Eric Schmidt, though he's reputed to be an avid pilot.

Larry Ellison is there though, along with his Woodside address.

I don't put a lot of faih in those Zillow numbers. Maybe if I actually sold the place and managed to get that much, I would.

The bigwigs may, but we peeons don't have that kinda pull...

If you own a house, your info is public record. unless you have a LLC (or a PAC :) ) to buy things for you, being known is kinda hard to avoid.

Is this link helpful?

It would appear that even the peeon's can request for their privacy. ;) ... or not.

Not inside the beltline you won't - it's still cheaper - but inside the beltline is a more fair comparison to that part of middle California.

If houses are going for that in the Baltimore/Washington corridor, I _know_ you can get that kind of price in San Jose.

Hey; you don't live very far from me. Should we tell these other people what an *expensive* house in San Jose costs?
