Myers: Maybe what you really need is right in front of you

Thompson: Find a new use for your credit cards

Do you love brownies? Then this tip is for you. Rather than trying to cut your brownies with a knife, use an old credit card instead.

Just make sure that you clean the credit card before using it.
