Replace All Your Lightbulbs with a Head Torch

We’ll look back at the days where people had fixed light outlets in multiple rooms and shake our heads. How could we have been so profligate to waste all those watts! Instead, wear a head torch to see in the evening – windup is best, batteries are not cheap

If you don’t believe me, I’m sure some influencer on instabook will convince you (just like someone convinced you to get that airfryer a few weeks back).
