Receipt Scanner in Cars Printer Friendly Version
Each time I make a purchase and get a receipt, I either stuff it in my pocket, throw it away, or put it in my car as I leave the store. What if there was something built into the middle counsel or dash of your car, where you can insert the receipt, it is scanned, and is stacked nicely for you to retrieve later. The receipt's info is then inputed to a spreadsheet file or the image is electrically stored. Then you could download the already formatted spreadsheet file to your computer with a running tally of your expenses. Or the file is contained on a USB drive. It could even shred the receipt after scanning, if you don't care to keep the paper copy.
Sure, essentially your online bank statements provide this info, but you can't format or manipulate it in a way that might make it easier for you to see a pie chart showing that you are spending 36% of your monthly income on booze.
Reward: A unit for my car

Grocery Store Deli Counter Convenience Printer Friendly Version
One of my biggest complaints about going to the grocery store for my weekly purchase of food & necessities, is the total inconvenience of going to the deli counter to get cold cuts, cheese, etc, for sandwiches. Luckily, I usually go with my wife and she can contiue shopping while I sit there for what seems hours waiting to get service behind a sea of people! The solution: Simple offer shoppers the convenience of a small piece of paper in which to "write" their order on it. Leave the order with a "designated order-filler" and continue with shopping. After your shopping adventure is over, simply return to the deli counter to pick up your order and move on. This would save time, and greatly improve shoppers attitudes toward the deli counter inconveniences that everyone has to put up with.

Cigarette Pack Bottom Cigarette Pusher Printer Friendly Version
Like chap stick and lip stick you can't use them until you can get them to the surface. If each cigarette had a bottom that you could push the cigarette up then you could easily remove them (or one) from the pack. Right now you can't get the first or second cigarette out without dumping the whole pack out or squishing the cigarettes around the one you want until you've removed about the first five making room for any sized fingers to grab one out. We just provide a cicular segmented bottom under each cigarrete that extends below each one and you push up on the bottom of the one you want. Each cigarette gets it's own push up piece!
Easily implimented and manufactured at minimal cost since the materials need not be of any other product they don't already have readily available, such as the type of card board type paper used in hard pack cigarettes or any other material they have now. This would work on packs of gum and other tightly packed items.
Reward: To have these bottoms on all brands and pack types.
