Honestly, I’ve never been diligent about using reusable shopping bags — because most are just too small. And you still have to carry a ton of bags from the shopping cart to your car… and then from your car to your kitchen. But since I’ve had these 4 large Lotus Trolley Bags, I use them all the time! Grocery shopping has never been easier. Here’s why I like the Lotus reusable shopping cart bags so much and think you will too!
As someone who works from home and spends a lot of time in my house — I LOVE receiving clever (and useful) home gifts. If you know someone who recently moved into a new house or someone who appreciates owning one-of-a-kind items… then you’ve come to the right place to find something special for them this year! I own most of these items myself and I know that your friends and family members are going to enjoy them too!
It wasn’t until I tried a Candleberry candle that I discovered just how ‘average’ most scented candles are! No joke. Candleberry is the only company I’ve found that makes scented candles that truly last… AND the scent fills the entire house!
I’ve used essential oil diffusers for years. I used to use the plastic kind (aka ultrasonic diffusers), but I’ve learned that a nebulizing diffuser is SO much better – because the scent fills the room quickly, you get the benefits of aromatherapy right away, and it looks beautiful! Here’s a point-by-point comparison, and my experience using glass nebulizing diffusers vs. plastic ultrasonic diffusers.
I like to repurpose things whenever I can, and I’m always wanting a fast easy way to start a fire in our fire pit — so I came up with this simple idea for DIY fire starters using dryer lint, tealight candles, and toilet paper tubes. It’s a good way to repurpose dryer lint and cardboard tubes from paper towels & toilet paper. Plus, these dryer lint fire starters work really well! Here’s how I make them…
Time for a new pillow? Have you tried down bed pillows yet? Here’s why I’ll never sleep on anything but a down pillow. And see why I like Cuddledown pillows the best…
Honestly, I wasn’t sure this Sumo bean bag chair would meet my needs as well as it has — but I’ve fallen in love with it! Here’s everything you need to know about this oversized bean bag chair before you buy one for yourself or as a gift. See the pros & cons and who I think will enjoy it the most.
Poo Pouri is a GREAT poop spray! I’ll never buy traditional bathroom sprays again – because it’s so much more effective to use a toilet spray than an aerosol bathroom deodorizer. Here’s how to combine essential oIls & water to make your own homemade Poo Pourri recipe. The original Poopouri before you go toilet spray makes a great gift, but this homemade poo spray is what I keep in each of the bathrooms in my home.
Scrub Daddy makes 2 sponge holders that fit their smiley face sponges known as Scrub Daddy and Scrub Mommy. Both the Scrub Daddy Caddy and the Scrub Daddy Sponge Caddy will keep your Scrub Daddies and Mommies out of the way — but still close at hand in the kitchen sink, bathroom sink, and shower. This type of sponge holder also helps the smiley face sponge air-dry faster. I keep one in my shower and one in my kitchen sink.
Moving into a new house? You’re going to need some basic tools for small home projects! Here’s the list of tools that I recommend. They’re the ones I’ve used the most — after moving into my first home. This home tool kit list is my housewarming gift to you.
I like decorating with metal wall art. Metal is so rustic… and bold… and adds another dimension to home decorating. It’s not flat and 2-dimensional like most other aspects of art and home decor. Metal is 3-dimensional and adds a solid, timeless feel to the space. Here are some of my favorite metal wall art pieces.
