Home gadget to buy

Sure, you’ve got a roof over your head and food on the table, but it’s one thing to live your life and another thing to enjoy it while you are in your home. With all of the amazing products out there just waiting for you to discover them, there’s no reason your house can’t be your favorite place to be.

But how do you know what’s out there if you don’t know what to look for? There are so many gizmos and gadgets that say they’ll make your life easier but are really just a waste of space and money.

Instead of wasting your hard-earned money on these to simply clutter your environment unnecessarily, check out these 10 things that your home needs but you never knew existed.

Yes, These Incredible Products Do Exist – And You Need Them!

1. A bar code scanner to create your grocery lists.

It’s called Hiku the Shopping Button, and that is really what it does! If you are running low on an item, simply scan the bar code on it and tell Hiku to add the item to your grocery list. It sends it to an app on your phone, so the days of scrambling to find paper and pencil to write a list you are just going to leave at home on your kitchen counter when you go to the store are over.

2. An all-in-one over the door organizer.

There are organizers that hang over the door for your shoes, your ties, your necklaces, and more, but what about an all-in-one so you don’t have to look multiple places for your stuff? They exist and they can hold makeup, jewelry, and so much more, and they even come with a mirror already mounted for you.

No more chasing down all of your favorite daily items from multiple different spots around your room. Just store them all in this organizer, hang it over your door, and grab and go as you need to!

3. Comfy foam bean bags you can customize and never want to leave.

The Comfy Sack is the bean bag for the whole family. They come in all sorts of sizes – buy one for yourself or get one for the whole family to relax and watch TV together with. They are customizable and you can order free samples from www.comfysacks.com to pick your favorite texture.

Comfy Sacks have a wide variety of colors that they are available in and are made out of a shapeable, soft, and long-lasting form of shredded foam. Because of the unique materials, the Comfy Sack keeps its texture without becoming permanently compressed, even with years of use.

4. Reclaimed river wood you can hang with 3M strips.

In the past, adding wood accents to your walls or other home areas to add a rustic touch would require some severe home renovating. But with Timberchic’s Reclaimed River Wood, you can do it with the peel of an adhesive tape.

This wood is processed from a green company in Maine that takes river logs, turns them into thin pieces of usable planks by treating them, and then adds the 3M strips to the back of the plank to make it easy to use. No mess, no tools, and no carpentry training necessary. It saves you time, effort, and money and makes your home look like a professional did the work.

5. It’s cupholder! No, it’s an umbrella.

Actually, it’s a cupholder umbrella. In this day where coffee is king, you no longer have to decide whether you want to save your drink from the elements or save yourself. With this innovative gadget, you can do both as you navigate the drizzle or fierce rain.

Your prized java or whatever drink you are carrying at the moment remains safe from the diluting water or trips and spills, and you can confidently walk into your meeting unscathed.

6. The odor-free onion holder.

Of course, by nature onions are not odor-free, but when you slice them, the smell permeates into your skin. It’s difficult to get rid of, too, and no matter how much you love the taste of this food, you probably don’t want to smell like it all day.

Enter the onion holder. Available just about anywhere you can order online, these handy gizmos keep the onion in place for you so you can slice and dice with ease without touching the vegetable.

7. The faucet thermometer.

This product is a real life-saver if you have little ones and it’s an ouch-saver for older kids and adults, too. Simply attach it to your faucet and when you turn the water on, the digital thermometer tells you the temperature. You can always get the water not too hot, not too cold, but just right. And they’re available at hardware stores, department stores, and through online vendors everywhere.

8. The ice cream lock.

You know you bought that tub of Ben & Jerry’s just for you, but everyone else in the house always sneaks into it. Not anymore!

These ice cream gurus know that your tub needs to be there when that craving or emotional binge eating urge hits, so they invented a lock that has a combination only you know. Without that combo, the ice cream is off limits, saving it for you and your late night (early morning, all day, whatever) cravings!

9. The wireless laser keyboard for all surfaces.

Whether you need one for your phone or tablet or just don’t want to deal with the hassle of a bulky keyboard in your space, you will love this wireless laser keyboard. With the touch of a button, any surface turns into a keyboard, and you’ll be the envy of everyone around you, too.

Go From Ho Hum to Whoa!

Now that you know these incredible products are out there, you just need to track them down and grab one for yourself! You never knew how much easier life could be until you start using these ten must-have home improvements.
