Not to cause a panic, but Efficiency Is Everything needs to be profitable this year or it will shut down(according to IRS profitability rules). This shouldn’t be a big deal, I estimate $300 in expenses need to be covered which should be easy if the 10,000 people that signed up for an email donate $0.03 each. Or get yourself a physical classic Efficiency Is Everything cookbook or eat for $1.59/day with the Perfect Eating cookbook. If you believe in the idea of optimizing your life with Industrial Engineering principles, more than ever, this is the time to support.
Now for one of the biggest time saving articles of all time-
Don’t be daunted by the wall of text, the first half is full of brain lifehacks, and the second half is my personal anecdote(optional). The ROI is 168x in the first week alone. (7.5 minute read time, 21 hours saved)
And a money saving, data driven study-
Diapers Per Dollar, find out how you can get 3 diapers for the price of 1. (For those without kids and don’t know about Target vs Costco vs Walmart vs Amazon, this will still be value added to read)
Kanban and MRP in your Kitchen-Industrial Engineering applied to your home. This one is essentially finished, but I decided I wanted to apply this study for an entire quarter before releasing it. The real world can be different than idealized principles. This will be released next quarter.
Protein Per Second Part 3- I finally found a solution to the measurement problem by using Fermi Numbers. I’m beyond excited about this.
Nutrient Per Dollar Calculator- I got the multi-million entries from USDA but my 8gb of RAM wasnt enough to complete the merges. Either donate so I can buy more RAM, or I’ll have to spend time and get creative.
Scientific Cleaning- After multiple top google results suggested mixing baking soda and vinegar, this article is necessary for humanity. After much consideration, as Piranha solutions are not recommended in Laboratory environments, I’ll need to find something a bit safer.
