Working from home gives me mixed emotions; happy for the obvious reason that I am at home with my family working at flexible hours and sad because the list of household chores seems never ending. I am a homemaker and I love to look after the cleaning of my house to give it that freshly cleaned look. Sounds like an impossible task, right? I can assure you I have some help in achieving clean look. So without much ado, I wanted to share with you my list of magical home gadgets that transformed my routine and helped me cut the time I invest in keeping the house relatively tidy the whole week through.
I have also included some gadgets that help me cut time in the kitchen. This vegetable slicer that helps me slice and cook faster than ever. And other helpful items that I have added to my home office like these hem incense sticks which infuse the air with calming lavender and help me maintain my cool when the internet link fails me. Now, I know this is technically not a gadget but I cannot live without my dark roast coffee beans which are a kick starter for me every morning when I feel like I am not quite awake yet. I hope you find something on here which also saves you time, money and some sanity. Enjoy!
