I love ideas like this.  I always misplace my rag so I made a lighter leash thingy into a rag holder. Now I always have my rag!  ;D

Great way to get flyers out. Put postcard size flyers in zip-lock bags with clean gravel (marble chips) in them to wait them down and so you can throw with ease. Fill several 5 gallon buckets with them and hit the road. When throwing out the window, try to hit the driveway close to the mailbox. That way it's not out of the way for the homeowners. You can cover lots of houses quick like this.

Yeah a sag happens when too much paint builds up from a cut line and it dries before it levels out...

I carry a utility knife, a razorblade and a sanding block with me.  At the end of the day I keep them with my keys so I never forget them.  :)

quick tip to avoid that?...when working from a deuce or 2 gallon bucket as you load the brush and tap the sides paint builds up on the side of the bucket...load your brush from the side build up by tapping the tip of the brush against the side loading it with the built up paint, then you can cut in countertops without the sag...try it sometime
I don't do this for a hobby and I'm damn sure I don't need the practice
