There are also high tech items like the classic Echo Dot which are so incredibly easy to use, which can act as your gateway device into smart homeownership, it’s like having a virtual assistant or a spare pair of hands when you need them the most. Regardless of what you might need, take a look and see if any of them hit your wants list. Then, treat yourself.

It’s summer time, warm weather is steadily taking over, which means that it’s officially barbecue season. Ever since I bought a silicone basting brush for the first time, I’ve been a convert.

Save Your Money and Get These Reusable Filters
Since I started to be more selective in my choices to live in a way that was less wasteful and thinking more long term at ways to save money but also how wasteful we were in our home. I’ve been finding more alternatives to everyday items and tools that are better for my pocket and also the environment.

This Tub Drain Protector Launched My Wig Collection
I could make a wig out of the amount of hair I lose in the shower. No matter how much I try to stick it to the wall and collect it at the end, some strands sneak their way into the drain and clog it! Not every drain is built for my hair, so I use this tub drain protector that has over 108,000 raving reviews! Yes, those are 3 zeros.

Create Your Own Healthy Snacks At Home With A Food Dehydrator
We snack on fruit we particularly love dried fruits. However, there is a lot of chemical in packaged dried fruit not to mention the cost.

Gamer in the House? They Will Need A Mechanical Keyboard
We originally bought this for our PC that the boys like to game on. Since we made the switch to a mechanical keyboard, I now find it weird, in fact, to type on a non-mechanical one. Primarily popular with gamers because of the ergonomic design but I find it user friendly for general typing for writing and other, everyday computer tasks (err… browsing on Amazon).

Banish Weak Signal Spots in Your Home With This WiFi Extender
Living in a multi-story house has taught me that WiFi range is nearly as important as the quality of the internet.

We bought a couple of these WiFi extenders, and the increase in speed was instantly noticeable. We now get signal right down to the very back of the garden.

Up Your Game on Calls and Videos With A Snowball Microphone
While mics on headphones and earbuds are adequate for taking short calls, if you’re constantly using your voice online, it’s worth spending a bit on dedicated gear.

Tik Tok is Full of Air Fryer Hacks You Need To Try
I love my french fries and chicken wings, but I really dislike ordering it in – especially if I have the craving multiple times a week (did I say ‘if’? I meant ‘when’). This air fryer was one of the best cooking investments I’ve made possibly in my whole life. Not only is it possible to save money on fried goodies, it uses less oil and reduces the negative impacts on your health by (I’m assuming) a large amount. Talk about worth.
Knife Set Perfect for Teaching Kids How to Cook
I still remember one of the first times I asked my parents if I could help make dinner.

Perfect Companion for Your Bike Rides is This Phone Mount
I love bike rides. There are no shortage of trails, parks, and lakes by where I live, so that’s how I usually get my physical activity. The unfortunate caveat to this is that I am terrible with directions and rely heavily on a GPS. Before I got this phone mount for my bike, I’d have to stop and check my phone every couple minutes just to make sure I was on the right track. Having it in front of me the whole time has been life-changing and well I’m less likely to crash now.
