    Clean up menu bar?
    I have a ridiculous amount of items in the menu bar (mainly third party: pomodoro, Little Snitch, Cinch, iStat Menus, etc), and they are overtaking my menu bar real estate. I use everything in the menubar, but I can't see it two thirds of the time thanks to application menus. I've spent a lot of time googling and looking for things that might help, but to no avail.

    Basically, I'm looking for one of two things: a way of adding more space (a second layer?) to the menu bar or some sort of window to show all of my menubar items. I won't be insulted or surprised if no such thing exists, I'm pretty sure I'm just dreaming here, but one can always hope, no?

    The closest thing I can think of is second bar, but it works by adding a menu bar to an external monitor. So if you don't have one, I guess you're out of luck

    Thanks. I've looked at that. It actually will work on a single monitor system, but it doesn't really free up any space in the original menu bar.
