Basically it’s a flat organizer that uses a series of elastic straps to keep all your stuff — iPod, phone, earbuds, pens, notepad, camera, etc. — safely in place. They come in a variety of sizes and would make it super easy to switch purses in a snap! [$15-$25, The Container Store]

Yep, you read that right: this crazy creation from a place called (fittingly) Psycho Donuts is filled with real beer pastry cream and topped with beer nuts. I’m a huge fan of donuts but I hate beer, so this confection leaves me conflicted. Would you be brave enough to take a bite? [Neatorama]
