These Chair Socks Are Saving My Kitchen Floors

via Amazon

We have wood floors in the kitchen and stools pulled up to our island where the kids eat 90% of their meals. The kids are wiggly and climb on and off the stools, meaning a lot of scraping across the wooden floor. We have the little plastic protectors on the stool legs, but they collect so much dirt and dust it looks like the stools are wearing fuzzy slippers. A much better solution are these chair socks, which just slip over the chair or stool legs and glide across the floor, no scratching! They come in a few colors to blend in with wood tones, but I think they look cute when in contrast, too.

These Nail Clippers Have A Handy Secret

These Shower Curtain Rings Are Genius

via Amazon

You know when you want to wash the shower curtain, you have to first take down the liner so you can access the curtain? Pain in the you-know-what. But with these shower curtain rings, there's a separate prong for the liner and the curtain, so you can take down either with ease for washing or switching them out! My second favorite part is that you don't have to clip and unclip the rings, they're freestanding, which makes them so much easier to use than the kind I currently have. *Adds to cart*

Sure, down comforters are soft and warm, but they're also expensive, difficult to clean and can cause allergic reactions.

These Under Bed Motion Lights Are A Knee Saver

via Amazon

I get up multiple times during the night, whether it's for a bio break or to check on the kids if they've had a bad dream. Our bedroom is pretty dark, so often as I'm coming back in I whack my knees painfully on the footboard and wake up my husband as I'm trying to make my way around the bed. These under bed motion lights are the perfect solution - they're not overly bright so won't disturb sleep and only come on when your feet hit the floor.

This Spontuneous Game for Family Gatherings

This Lighter Is Rechargeable

via Amazon

How neat is this rechargeable lighter? I prefer to use lighters over matches, so I don't burn my fingers, but we usually get the plastic disposable ones with the long neck since they're so convenient for lighting candles. Trouble is, they run out of juice pretty fast, and then you're contributing more plastic waste when you toss it. This USB rechargeable one is such a smarter idea - it'll not only save you money in the long run, but it has a child safety feature, is windproof, and splash-proof if you decide to take it camping with you. I'll be inside with my cozy candles, though!
