Literally our shark vaccum cleaner! Also one of those under-the-sink storage things for all those plastic grocery bags! Those were the first two things that came to mind anyway, lol

pinkprincess88 :  cordless Dyson vacuum! We have hardwood and two dogs on the first floor. I keep it in the pantry and can do the whole first level in 5-10 minutes, which I do at least every other day! So easy. Carpets I do once/week or so with our regular Dyson vacuum.

It seems like such a non-necessity, but I don’t have a ton of different sized pots and I can boil so much more in my small pots with this and I have NEVER overboiled anything when using it. Other than that, I would say my baking dishes with lids, they can just be closed and stuck in the fridge before bed, which makes cleaning up after dinner quicker. I think most of the things that I love the most are in the kitchen bc I cook so often.

Electronic keyless door lock: We give the code to our dog walker/ family friends who stay over and never worry about losing keys. 

Nest: I havent set the heat since we purchased it.

Slow cooker and electric tea kettle are high on my list, but the litter genie is probably the best thing I’ve purchased living with a cat. On a third floor apartment and a bit of a walk to the dumpster, I appreciate just having a fairly odor-free receptacle for litter that keeps my dumpster runs to about once per week.

 Instant pot.  Pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker and more.  Best part about it?  Meat can go straight from freezer to dinner table in 30-40 minutes.  Pull it out from freezer, pop it in with whatever sauce of the night and what not, go take a shower, and dinner is ready by the time I’m out.

I don’t have an instant pot (on my wish list!) but I have a stovetop pressure cooker that I love. Also our roomba. We love it and so does our dog (he turns it on sometimes and just follows it around)

Second the Instant Pot. I seriously love that thing.

Also, we have a lot of WeMo light switches and outlets. I love being able to turn on lights before I get home.
