10 Things to Buy in 2018 to Make your Life Easier


Every year, I almost buy so many things – but 2018 is the year I buy things to make my life easier! I love knickknacks that are unique, but also take a lot of the little struggles out of life.



I created this list of the 10 things to buy in 2018 to make your life easier.

Portable Phone Charger

If you haven’t got a portable phone charger by now, it is time.

Besides the fact that it is 2018, the new iOS update has been draining the battery of everyone’s phone – and no one wants their phone to die when they need it.

If you keep your portable phone charger on you, you will always have a spare charge no matter what happens!

This one created by PowerAll.  It recharges with 5V/2A adapter is twice as faster than normal 5V/1A input, reduce recharging time by 50%

Air Fryer

If you are looking for a healthier way to eat your favorite fried foods, it is time to invest in an air fryer.

The original TurboStar AirFyer from Phillips is a great choice!

The TurboStar technology swirls hot air continuously throughout cooking basket. The food is exposed to this constant, circulating heat, it is cooked through while draining excess fat.

Fitbit Ionic

I have long been a fan of Fitbit, and I think that it has dramatically changed how I take care of my body.

The new Fitbit Ionic is a step up! It gives you personal workouts (with coaching), allows you to store 300+ songs, and has a built-in GPS and heart rate monitor.

It can also be used to pay for things and can be used with Bluetooth Headphones.

Bluetooth Headphones

Speaking of, it is time to get Bluetooth Headphones. They are great for working out, and they solve the whole lighting port issue on the new iPhone.

The Otium Wireless Sports Headphones are waterproof, noise canceling and they have an 8-hour battery life.

These headphones also have easy to use buttons – so you don’t have to reach for your phone.

Plus, learning how to keep up with Bluetooth Headphones proves some real responsibility – and make you can talk your significant other into that puppy you want!

Subscription Box

I have been testing out Subscription boxes since 2014, and I love them! Since that time, I have tried Ipsy, and I have tried the Barkbox.

I am no longer subscribed to the above (because I have them for 4 years), but I am subscribed to FabFitFun. FabFitFun is a subscription box that is $49.99 a season – and you get over $300 worth of products (check out my winter and fall boxes).

I love this box because I get fashion, beauty and home products!

There are tons of subscription boxes out there! Be sure to try one this year!

Roomba

Being a dog mom, I have dreamed of owning a Roomba! I think about clean floors – without all the dog hair – all the time. Why do I have to love long-haired dogs?!

If there was ever a time to get a Roomba, it is now. The new Roomba can communicate with your Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It also has its own app.



The patented 3-Stage Cleaning System and Dual Multi-Surface Brushes pick up everything from small particles to large debris – meaning Schmidt hair!

High-Tech Scale

One of my favorite purchases of 2017 was my RENPHO scale!

The RENPHO scale has 11 essential measurements. The scale shows body weight, data including Weight, BMI, Body Fat Percentage stores to an app.

You can weigh yourself anytime WITHOUT your phone. The data will sync to the app once it is connected again!

Wall Decor

This might seem like an odd one on the list, but I know so many homes (including my own) are lacking wall decor!

Wall decor really adds personality in your home, and can really upgrade a space.

Here are some favorites that I have been eyeing lately:

When it comes to beer, I stick with 6-packs of Shiners. This little guy would be perfect for it.

It has a slot for an icepack and another side pocket for a bottle opener!

I am always traveling, and I need to find a solution for all of my cords!

As a blogger and a normal person, I have ALL the cords!
