13+ Smart And Affordable Products That Make Life A Little Easier

We all want to live a life of luxury. Am I right? But the honest truth is that not all of us can really afford it.

That doesn't mean we have to suffer or forgo the good things in life, though. Not when there are plenty of reasonably priced items that can still make your life a lot easier.

1. An Electric Toothbrush

I switched from a regular toothbrush a while ago and I haven't looked back. This very small investment is going to make a huge difference in the health of your teeth. Even my dentist was impressed.

2. Crock-Pot Lunch Warmer

No more running to the crowded office lunch room to warm up your lunch. Just bring your lunch in this cute Crock-Pot lunch warmer. Plug it in the wall outlet and — voilà! — lunch is warmed up.

3. Steam Mop

Make no mistake about it, I don't like to spend too much time cleaning. And I'm sure you don't either. So, get yourself a steam mop like this one so you can get things done a lot faster.

4. Portable Laptop Lap Desk

Now that many of us are working from home we can be more flexible with our working environment. If you want to work from the couch one day, invest in this cool portable laptop desk.

5. Heated Neck And Shoulder Massager

Speaking of working from home, if you're spending a lot of time on the computer you will definitely need this. This heated neck and shoulder massager will be your literal life-saver for those achy muscles.

6. Clip-On Glasses Holder

If you're a glasses wearer like me you probably get annoyed when you don't remember where you left your glasses. With this nifty clip-on glasses holder, they'll always be by your side. I gotta get one of these.

7. The Wine Wand

What is the wine wand, you ask? Well, apparently, it's a filter that removes histamines and sulfite preservatives from wine so you can drink to your heart's content. No more headaches, congestion, skin flushes, and hangovers.

8. Satin Pillowcases


Now you can sleep in the lap of luxury when you get yourself these satin pillowcases. They're not only soft and comfy but help you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. An investment worth looking into.

9. Cast Iron Skillet

If you're still using a non-stick skillet to cook on, you're definitely missing out on some health benefits. A cast iron skillet is a much better option because it doesn't release any nasty chemicals. Use it to sear, sauté, bake, broil, braise, fry, or grill.

10. Fluffy Area Rug

What can be more welcoming and homey than a comfortable, soft, and fluffy area rug? I dunno what else can make your living space more enjoyable. You can instantly change the look of any room and it's super affordable, too.

11. Massaging Shower Head

Are you still using that old shower head that came with your place? Forget about it. Get yourself a massaging shower head instead and you'll definitely be in heaven. They really do make a huge difference.

12. Household Plants

Houseplants can not only give you a great ambiance, but they make the house feel like a home. When you surround yourself with greenery your mood will start to improve. Trust me, it's definitely good for you.

13. Milk Frother

Do you spend a lot of money going out for coffee every day? Well, stop that now, lol. This little yet powerful handheld milk frother will help you make lattes and cappuccinos at home in no time.

14. Bed Sheet Suspenders

Have you ever struggled to get a good night's sleep because your fitted sheet keeps popping off the mattress corner? Never struggle with that problem again. Secure your sheet with handy sheet suspenders. That'll do the trick!

15. Sugru Moldable Glue

Sugru is a moldable glue and rubber that has a ton of uses. One of its most popular uses is for doing small tech repairs for things like broken wire casings or watch straps. Reviewers on Amazon love this product!

See, I told you there are plenty of reasonably priced items that can bring more joy into your life.

And if you can save some money at the same time that's even better. I gotta look into getting a few of these myself.
