There are certain things that I use over and over again in the home and I’m sharing my top 6 with you today! I’m sure there are some that I have forgotten but these six were the very first to come to mind when I thought about the tools or items that I really feel are high quality and very useful.

Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead Lightweight Cordless Stick Vacuum – this cordless vacuum gets used multiple times a day and it’s, perhaps, the most useful tool that we use with the kids. We do a lot of bare feet around here, and stepping on crumbs is the worst. We use this vacuum often and on both floors of the house as well. We’ve had ours for a few years and did have to replace the battery, but ever since then, it’s been working perfectly.
De’Longhi Dinamica Automatic Coffee + Espresso Machine – this was a thoughtful purchase that was, admittedly, a bit of a stress-buy toward the beginning of quarantine, but man I love this machine. I had been using two separate machines for the few different drinks I like to make, but now I’m pleased that it’s all in one!
Outlet timers – One of the things we noticed about our house after we moved in was the lack of lighting! I rely on lamps with timers to keep the house well lit, and I love that I don’t have to go around and turn them all off at night.
Aera Smart Home Diffuser (they are offering 20% off diffusers through Nov 30 using code KATE20) – I’ve shared this with you and I honestly cannot tell you how much I love this. I’m currently “playing” a Pumpkin Spice scent and it’s an actual dream. It makes my home smell delightful! I also love that I can set it up on a schedule so I’m not wasting any of the scents when no one is home.
Ring Doorbell Video Camera – We have a few of these around our house and in our garage. Not only is it helpful to chat with the neighbor kids who may be asking to play with my kids when we aren’t home, but I love that I can see exactly who is at my door at all times.
Handheld Steamer – This falls more in the “personal” category than the “home” category but I use it so much I wanted to throw it in here. It’s a cheap and portable handheld steamer and it works better than any of the other larger, bulkier steamers that I’ve tried.
While there are certainly more items that I’m sure I’ll think of after I hit publish, I wanted to share these few with you because they are things that we truly use every day (well, maybe not the steamer but I use it at least twice a week!) that help our home operate at it’s best!
