1. FIND: FEMELI Kitchen Shelf for Stove
I had been looking for a way to easily access my spices that I use regularly and this does the trick. The shield stays in place because of its magnetic bottom. It also comes in a few colors so it blends in with my stove. Plus, it ships in two pieces so the box wasn't huge. I highly recommend it for both function and aesthetic.
2. FIND: Maldon Salt, Sea Salt Flakes
I love salt, so I prefer to use a salt jar instead of a salt shaker. It really makes my salt sprinkling moments more special. You can rub the flakes between your fingertips to get finer salt or sprinkle in her full form. I love the versatility. My friend had Maldon salt at her vacation house over July 4th weekend. I was expecting it to be pricey but to my surprise, it was only around $5. She also looks very cute on my new stove shelf.
3. FIND: South Shore Axess Classic Narrow and Space Saver Bookcase
Only $80 for a bookshelf? Say less. This does exactly what I need it to and I built it in about an hour by myself. It was pretty heavy to carry up the stairs, but I appreciate the quality of this shelf so much. It fits perfectly in the corner next to my desk.
4. FIND: 2 Pack Collapsible Laundry Basket Hamper
Is separating your laundry by color a thing people still do these days? Well, being a "grandmillenial" (grandma + millennial) I do my best to separate my clothes when washing them. This two-pack has made it so much easier. They both have the perfect clothing load size and are lightweight yet also very sturdy. I highly suggest this for anyone who struggles with putting your clothes in the hamper. Two is better than one.
5. FORGET: iPhone 14 13 12 11 Fast Charger, MFi Certified, 10FT Long
So here's the thing, I like to always have my phone literally in my hand. Yes, this means when I’m sleeping. I always try to find long chargers, and this one looked really promising. While I know non-Apple chargers almost always die at some point, I have had a few that have had a decent lifespan of 1-2 years. I bought this two-pack about a month ago and I’m already down to only one of them working. So, purchase at your own risk.
6. FORGET: Dreo Evaporative Air Cooler
My bedroom faces the street, so no window a/c units for me. I thought this would be a good alternative to an AC unit. It's cheaper, smaller and a better use of energy, but I wouldn’t consider this a replacement for AC. It's more of a chilly, glorified fan. It does come with a remote and has timer settings which I love, but I still find myself a little too warm for comfort on those hot summer days.
7. FORGET: cobinaan Heatless Curling Rod Headband
I’m all about heatless hair styling. I have tried a couple of different tools and this one just doesn’t stay in. I think the silky material doesn't have enough traction with my thin, mostly straight hair. However, if you have more textured hair this will probably work. I do use the clips that come with this product to keep my curtain bangs out of my face when I do my makeup. So, I’d half-recommend this product.
