My Amazon wish list becomes my reminder shopping list. Whenever I hear or see a product mentioned, I go directly to Amazon and see if they sell it. I like to look at all the reviews and since I’m an Amazon Prime member and I love the ways to save on Amazon, I prefer to purchase there versus most other online stores.
Since we have moved, my Amazon wish list has grown substantially. I thought I would share 5 items from my current wish list that are home hacks. Not country living hacks, but they were placed on my wish list after we moved.
Since we don’t have cable (yet), we have been using our devices to stream shows via Netflix. Well, one can only take so much of watching a 2-hour movie on a small iphone so I hooked up my computer to the TV. Only problem is the only sound we have without an audio adapter is from my computer.
I’ve been wanting one of these anyways so I can play music around the house without requiring me to plugin my phone. Since this is bluetooth enabled, it will connect automatically. It’s so small that it’s easily transportable. It will be great for traveling too. I’ll take 2!
We have flys. So many flys. It’s like we have dead animals or something! Well, not that bad. But, seriously, I’ve never had a fly problem. Part of it is that the kids run outside and leave the door open. The other part is that since we are still moving stuff in, and starting some remodel, the doors are just left open. Either way, I want them gone and the good ole’ $1 fly swatters aren’t cutting it.
I totally blame my friend, Andrea, for this. She mentioned killing some flys with one of these and I totally searched and added to my wish list. I’m hoping it works on crickets and large bees too. Maybe it will kill MICE too! Perhaps even taze some my young children into submission. I’m sure it’s a multi-purpose device. :D
My BFF, Ginger has one of these. When her sister (and my other BFF) threw us a going away party, she was talking about this and said she couldn’t find the brand that Ginger had anywhere. So, I searched Amazon (duh!) and found this one. Since we have a huge yard now, this will be perfect to have up when the boys have friends over.
I can already see this setup, along with the projector displaying a movie on the house and a bonfire going! Oh, and will someone please tell me they the boys will eventually make friends and this move won’t cause them permanent mental distress!!
This house is 100 years old. The wiring needs a lot of work. There are no electrical outlets outside. Believe it or not, I have had visitors who probably want to know why I’m not answering the door when they knock. Well, I can’t hear them since we have no doorbell! I really need this doorbell like yesterday!
I love that it’s wireless since, again, our electrical needs some work. I can use it right out of the box and it doesn’t look hideous. We have three doors to the house but I’m purchasing just one for now for the door that people primarily use. Even if we did have doorbells, this would be great for a backdoor or garage door since we always kept them open in the summer.
We have like no storage space. Not even joking. I was looking for something to put downstairs for storage and random paperwork rather than running upstairs every 5 seconds to put stuff in my office. I like the darker color of this since it will match our dining room furniture. This will fit perfectly in the space and allow me to add some decor pieces on top.
Oh, and that glass pitcher at the top. Well, my mom has been making sweet tea for the boys since we’ve moved. She’s literally delivering a new gallon every two days but she’s using an old milk carton. I’m really particular about using glass for as much as possible and even moreso since I’ve started using essential oils. I’m switching out all my plastic containers (even if they are BPA free). So, I’m buying a few of these for mom for that tea delivery. I love being so close to family again!
That’s all for now. I literally have hundreds in my wish list and many are gone since I’ve already purchased them! If you have other suggestions for anything above, please leave me a comment. I’m going to purchase these items next month so I have some time to look at other items before.
Oh, I should have our first reno before/after pics up shortly. What was supposed to be a simple floor leveling so I could move my office into the former storage room turned into a much bigger project. Stay tuned!
