I saw this post on Cup of Joe and was amazed by all the genius little tricks people use in their everyday life. I thought I’d share my own list of small, inexpensive things that make my life better. And please, don’t hold back and share yours! Sharing is caring!
I have this phone/table holder* from Ikea, which is super-useful on my small WFH desk. It keeps my phone upright, visible, and easily accessible.
Electric candles/string lights on a timer. I bought some rattan star string lights before Christmas, but they’re really not just for the holidays and I think I’ll leave them up all year. They make me so happy.
Blush. I am by no means a heavy makeup kinda person, but mascara and a little blush go a LONG way. I look (and feel) so much more awake when I use a little blush on my cheeks, ha.
Night lights. Yeah, they’re not just for kids. I have two of these rotating LED night lights* and they’re perfect (small, unobtrusive, non-obstructive).
A kitchen scale. I don’t know how people cook with cup and spoon measurements. Weight measurements are so much more precise.
Bonne Maman jars. I use them for everything — storing my sourdough starter, storing herbs in the freezer, as a to-go container for overnight oats, collecting coins, etc. They’re so versatile. Also, Bon Maman jam is the best.
A small ruler with a non-slip cork back*. I bought this to keep in the inside pocket of my planner and I use it all the time.
A tubshroom*. We live in an old apartment and had problems with draining issues in the bathtub (what with my long hair). Not anymore!
This Spigen Liquid Air Armor Design iPhone Case* is the best – and most affordable, too! – iPhone case I have ever owned. Hands-down! It has a really good grip due to the patterned surface but still slides easily in and out of my pockets.
I love my Threads Wallets Lanyard*. Keeps all my keys and my slim wallet together when I don’t take a purse.
Your turn! Which small, inexpensive things make your life better?
