Now, I know it’s unnecessary (especially according to the number currently in my bank account), but I love shopping for gadgets. Those little tools shave precious seconds off of my to-do list so I can go back to doing what I do best: lounging and watching Netflix – obviously. Amazon’s gadgets have saved me major relaxation minutes. And no one can even complain; they’re so cheap it barely dents my budget and saves me tons of stressful moments.
With summer coming it’s more important than ever that I make time for sunbathing on my patio. So, out came my list of gadgets galore. I’ve covered all the bases for you, fun ways to drink, saving time on those (un)necessary chores, and the best of summer snacking. Enjoy and think of me when your life is changed!
