What three low-cost items make your life better? I'll start.

1. Bottle in the fridge into which I put any leftover coffee in the pot so that there's always iced coffee ready to go.

2. Long matches for shabbos licht. Major stress reducer.

3. Pretty pump bottle in the bathroom containing laundry soap (labelled) for more convenient hand laundry washing.

Terry bathrobe for each child instead of endless supply of bath towels. Hang up on hook in bathroom after use and wash once a week.

My bad- I should have mentioned that we always have at least one pkg of extra dark chocolate chips in the house too.

My favorite self cares are driving in the car with FM radio on, showers. They cost me but are so calming it's worth the few dollars.

We live with so many conveniences nowadays which have become a part of life and we can’t imagine living without them so it took me a few minutes to think.

1. My Betty Crocker pizza maker
2. Air conditioning
3. Internet

1) crock pot
2) disposables (dishes, pans and containers)
3) a set of hampers that allow you to sort the laundry right away as it’s produced.

1 - 2 pop up hampers (1 in each bathroom). Avoids overflowing laundry. Hub and I don't need to leave our bedroom to put our clothing in hamper lol

2 - small salt and sugar holder. For daily small amount use. Sugar in the coffee. Salt for bread etc

3 - cheap runner carpet in my foyer. No slipping that often on my 'fancy' glossy floors-on a rainy day, sprinkler day etc

Plastic or silicon lid covers - prevents spillage from open cans. Better than foil or bags. For some reason I found them in the pet food aisle or on Amazon as pet can lids

Pancake batter dispenser. For easy dispensing and less mess.

And of course, my Walmart brand single serve coffee maker which takes pods and ground coffee. Best $20 spent.

Dishwashing soap in a soap bottle with pump for easy use.

A corner rounding punch to add the final touch to paper crafts. Coronavirus brought out my inner crafter and I also invested in a paper cutter and envelope maker - lots of fun.

Mixgram app so I can print out beautiful photo collages from home.

Shabbos lamps in every bedroom.

Mini phone stand so I can easily read/watch while snacking and sipping coffee.

Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips. I snack on these instead of buying chocolate bars because it goes further.

Wow, I feel so blessed!!!
