I love how generously sized and air-tight they are.

A Hideaway Coffee Table

via Amazon

I visited someone’s home once upon a time where they had one of these lift-top coffee tables, and I thought it was the coolest. I know what you’re thinking: Why can’t you just put your stuff on the top of the table? The quick answer is that you lose a working surface for, say, your dinner or a laptop. With this design, you can still store necessary items in the hidden compartment and have the top of the table accessible for other activities.

I love exotic furnishings, and this one on Amazon is an affordable version of a very on-trend piece of furniture.

This Hands-Free Soap Pump Is So Handy

via Amazon

When I go to wash my hands, they’re obviously dirty, so everything I touch is therefore going to get dirty. That’s why the top of soap dispensers squick me out – just think of all the germs living there! This touchless soap dispenser is a genius idea – you don’t actually have to make contact with the pump; it just senses the motion of your hand and automatically dispenses!

Stack Files In An Orderly Manner

via Amazon

When I bought my home office desk a few years ago, I thought it was a great find: Streamlined and chic, with just enough room for my computer and maybe a candle.

One thing that might help is this set of file organizers/stackable trays designed to tame the paper beast.

You Aren’t an Adult Till You Have a Nice Set of These

It’s only now that I have these that I consider myself adulting because if there’s one thing I neglected buying for way too long, it’s a nice set of coasters.

These are simple, cute, and look good in whatever room I choose to drink in.
