pinkshoes :  Can you please elaborate on how you cook meat from frozen in your instant pot? Like what you do exactly, lol? I don’t think I’m doing it right, I just end up with wet chicken breasts! Thank you!!

Command hooks! I’ve hung up the hand towels, the dish brush, broom, dust pan, etc. and adore how easy it is to organize an area of your home with minimal effort. Also, an over the door plastic shoe hanger. It was maybe $10, and we use it for all our shoes (except for boots), dog leash, poop bags, and pet supplies. It also works great for organizing bathroom supplies too (cleaners, shampoo, brushes, make up, etc) if you are low on space!

Something amazing that my Grandma did in her kitchen was have magnet boards on the sides of her cabinets to organize all her knives (she cooked a lot with her grandkids, so she had at least 20 knives I think). Kept them clean, out of reach of kids, and easily accessible.

My Lagostina pot and pan set!! Big splurge, but so completely worth it!

Oh and our king size bed! We always had a queen, so never thought to upgrade, but holy smokes what a difference it has made!!

Ok, best trash can ever: simplehuman step trash can with liner pocket. Never smells, lid stays open when changing, lid closes slowly after you step on it- this thing rocks.

glass toppers for end tables and nightstands. No more worrying about coasters. 

Agree with PP – Roomba gets all of the love, and his sister braava jet to wash the floors every day. (They have names in our house because they are that loved.)

I love the instant pot for FI’s frozen chicken. No more forgetting to dethaw.

If you are doing any gardening outdoor, this shovel is the most useful thing.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004DTU810/ (straight handle) Very easy to dig into clay/soil, very sturdy handle (you can twist it with your body weight and it doesn’t bend), and very light. Totally worth every penny. I always use it for digging troublesome weeds, moving plants, etc.

Another one for a good vacuum cleaner. We just got the Miele C3 for Cat and Dog Hair – it is beautiful!
