This Rechargeable Electric Wine Opener and Chiller
Girl, you deserve this rechargeable and cordless wine opener that happens to come with a chiller. All you have to do is press a button and the electric wine opener will remove the cork. No more elbow grease has to go into you opening a bottle of wine, which you’re probably doing because you want to relax.
And the stainless steel chiller will keep your wine cold for hours. You can thank me later.
This Bathtub Tray
After you pop open that bottle of wine, pour yourself a giant glass (I mean like, filled to the top), and settle down for a relaxing bath. But aren’t baths more trouble than they’re worth? you might ask. Don’t the pages of your book get all soggy and isn’t it hard to do anything while you’re lying there? Not if you have this perfect bath tray, which has a place specifically for your wine glass, and another for your book, and your phone, and anything else you might need!
This Digital Kitchen Scale
I have this exact kitchen scale and let me tell you, it has transformed the way I cook! Not only does it help me with portion control, but it also makes it like ten times easier to measure out ingredients for a recipe. It’s got a tare button to zero out when you put a bowl on there so you don’t have to try to do crazy math in your head when you’re trying to measure out 22 grams of flour.
These Stackable Food Canisters
I have realized that real adults have glass or metal or plastic food canisters. And as an adult, you should own some. Don’t just shove folded bags of beans and open boxes of pasta back into your cabinets. Keep it classy and fresh with these food canisters, which are stackable (so important if you are keeping them in your cabinet). I swear these will change your relationship with your own kitchen for the better.

They are endlessly versatile!
This Meal Planning Pad
OK, this is like the perfect organized mean planning pad. I already do this every week (write down my meals, and then a shopping list based off of those meals), but I do it on plain old Post-Its.

Hang this little birdhouse on your wall, and you’ll never again lose your keys! Perch that little bird whistle (yes, it’s a whistle) right up on its branch, and you will always know where your keys are…when you’re at home, at least. Personally, I would hang this up right by my door and make sure my keys were always there if I was home. Do you know many hours of my life I would save if I never had to search for my keys?

Fall is upon us. It’s time to add to your tea collection.
