I got sick of constantly untangling the rats nest of cables and electronics accessories that kept developing in my daily bag. Organizers to the rescue!
I’ve been a big fan of the AmazonBasics Universal Travel Case in the past, but I stopped using it on a regular basis because it was bulky and wasted a lot of space in my bag. Still a solid case for the price, but not daily carry material.
I have since moved to the ProCase Travel Gear Organizer supplemented by a Cocoon Grid-It. This system is more compact and flexible than before and I really like how the ProCase is laid out. The items within are potentially less protected than with the hard-sided AmazonBasics case, but considering it’s already in a padded bag (and I don’t put anything breakable in it anyway), I’m willing to make that sacrifice. Organization efficiency trumps raw protection in this case.
Looking for a robust, water-resistant case for your SD and microSD cards?
You could always buy the Pelican 0915, which is a classic choice but a bit expensive in my opinion.
I use the Kupton Case instead. Built extremely well, has a water-resistant seal, no branding/logos anywhere, and it holds my cards very securely. Some reviews claim that cards fall out of their slots, but I haven’t ever had that problem myself. And you can get two of them for much less than a single Pelican 0915!
My pick is definitely the Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard. As the name implies it folds into a very compact package, key travel/feel is good, and it’s compatible with anything you connect to it, including Apple devices.
On a budget? Pick up the Logitech K380.
The Logitech C922x Pro Stream is currently the best webcam out there.
The easiest for most people is LastPass.
If you have concerns with the proprietary nature of LastPass, check out KeePass and KeePassX.
Padlock is worth a look too.
Western Digital My Passport
The fastest is the Samsung T3.
A smaller and cheaper option is the PNY Elite.
Another model to consider is the MyDigitalSSD, although its build quality isn’t nearly up to the other two SSD options.
Easy Mode: Squarespace is popular for a reason.

Hard Core: Build it yourself.
The AC-PRO from Ubiquiti Networks is pretty much perfect.
I use the CP1500PFCLCD from CyberPower as my main uninterruptible power supply. I’m currently searching for another smaller option for my network hardware. I will update this when I find the best one.
