The Best Pillows

Is there anything more personal than buying a pillow? You can survive with less-than-perfect sheets and quilts, but pick the wrong pillow and your entire sleep pattern can be thrown out of whack.

The Best Air Purifiers

Air purifiers are one of those under-the-radar household items you think you can live without, but once you have one, you can never go back. These mighty machines do a lot of work: They clear the air of allergens, pet dander, germs, and even odors. And couldn’t we all stand to breathe air that’s just a little bit cleaner? We’ve rounded up […]

The Best Dehumidifiers

Air conditioners and are common in most homes, but dehumidifiers are actually just as useful. Much like an air conditioner cools, a dehumidifier works by taking away moisture in the air. The magic happens inside the unit, where humid air passes through cooling coils, drips away excess water into a tank, and exits as, well, less-moist air. The benefits? A reduction in […]

My Favorite Portable Air Conditioners

Summer calls for cooling, but not all of us have the luxury of central air. In fact, because of our window placement or where we want to cool (hello, hot garage), a portable air conditioner might be the best bet.

I was (obviously) very mistaken, but I didn’t realize it until I purchased a microfiber sheet set from Amazon solely based on price. Not only did […]

The second is that those items can be just as chic as their more delicate counterparts. We refreshed a living room using items completely sourced from Overstock.com to show how you can […]

The Best Mattress Toppers

While buying a new mattress is the best way to solve the problem of an old, lumpy mattress, sometimes that’s just not feasible. Maybe you don’t want to shell out a couple hundred bucks on a new bed, or maybe you just need a temporary solution to tide you over for a shorter period of time. Either way, a mattress topper is […]

The Best Handheld Vacuums

Vacuum cleaners are a staple in any home, but have you ever considered handheld vacuums? These mini vacuums are perfect for smaller messes, or just more precise, deeper cleaning. If you have a pet, handheld vacuums are great for picking up hair and dander, but even if you don’t there are many benefits to adding a handheld vacuum to your cleaning […]

The Best Comforters

Buying a comforter is one of those things that you think is going to be simple, but ends up taking more time than you ever thought. From deciding what level of coolness you want, the amount of plushness, and the type of fill, the task can quickly get overwhelming. We’re here to make it a bit easier. After several weeks […]
