    Thank you for these top picks! Some I already l love such as Coach, Amazon, Spotify and Wealthy Affiliate and others I would like to try.  I want to order the portable charger and flashlight (because, honestly, why are the batteries always dead when I need to use the flashlight?!?).  Also the electric kettle…I’ve used those before and they’re convenient and awesome to have in the office where there isn’t a stove to heat water!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Cynthia, At this point, I have purchased 8 of those same flashlights, and they always “delight” whoever receives the gift! 😉

    This article provided an enticing curated array of products to check out. The variety was like eye candy to a potential buyer, since the functions and quality made them worth checking out. 

    Of particular interest to me were the LED lighting, the remote controls, and the music equipment offerings. You were right, that discounts are not always necessary to lure buyers. If the products provide good value for money, and especially if they have emotional value, people would make a buying decision. 

    Overall, this made an interesting experience checking all these products out. 



  3. Nelson says:

    Wow. These are a lot of services and products you have listed in this article. I must commend your efforts in listing all your favorite products and services in each category. To fully benefit from going through this article, I will make out time to check out some the products and services I am not familiar with. Great job on this one.

  4. Chloe says:

    If not careful, anyone would go on and on saying “I’ll buy those, I’ll buy this ” because you’ve made a wonderful list of commonly used items at home and which most of them really need to be changed. I love the grouping into home and office which aids easy search and I must say there are quite alot I’ll need to replace at my house. Thanks for this really interesting information

    I like the Corelle line of dinnerware. They are so durable and looks so elegant. I have some white pieces of the small bowls and plan to purchase a full set soon.

    Also those lids for the Pyrex containers, I need to buy them because some of my lids have been broken and I couldn’t find them in the shops.

    Thanks for sharing.


    • Alyce says:

      That Corelle dinnerware is amazing. Both my mother and grandmother have had their own sets since I was a child and they have held up to daily use for years! They are definitely built to last and a great investment!

    Hey, Alyce!

    Wow!  You’ve done your research!  I am impressed by the amount of information you’ve shared within this one post.  I’ve shared it with some friends, also!  I’m fascinated by your on-the-go list – in particular, the ones that would help out in the car!  You present a wide array of products and ideas.  I like your train of thought!  Great list of essentials – that EVERY PERSON who stops by could benefit from.  

  7. MissusB says:

    It’s always good to look at list of items from other people because you can get ideas that you need in your household. The Elide Fireball Self Activating Fire Extinguisher really caught my interest as it is something we don’t have and I think it’s necessary for a house to own something like this. I watched the video and I think it’s an impressive item. You don’t have to bravely lift an old school fire extinguisher in case of emergency if you have it. Most products are are really tempting. Thumbs up for a well categorized list!

    • Alyce says:

      Isn’t that fire extinguisher ball amazing? I like how you can mount it in place and it would activate even without assistance!

  8. Wilson says:

    Hey, that’s quite the list you have going there. I’ve been thinking about picking up a nice fancy french press for a little while now, so thank you for the suggestion. 

    I noticed you have wealthy affiliate in there as well lol. Way to cover every niche. I’m sure you’re providing a lot of value for any needs your audience may have. Keep up the great work! 

    • Alyce says:

      My french press has been such a great purchase. I really like that it’s insulated and keeps the coffee hot! And Wealthy Affiliate has been a great way to get online… I started with a free account and quickly realized the value!

  9. Barbara says:

    Thanks for doing this article. I think I am going to check some of them out and see what´s up. I really liked how you have every bit of information and put all of them in this article. I will share this with my family and friends so that they can check it out for themselves. Thanks again

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks so much for sharing my list of favorite products with your friends. Hopefully you all enjoy these great buys as much as I have!

  10. Dave Sweney says:

    I think each of us has a favorite list of reward program sites and brands that we tap into periodically to make our lives a bit easier or to earn some extra cash or perhaps a coupon to get a discount on something that we may be planning on buying anyway. I have a few sites that do this with very little work on my part.

    Since I do not like to trade time for money on a one to one basis, I go for more of the coupon sites that will give you some cashback for your purchases or coupons that offer an instant discount. These are more instant reward type offers that I do not need to spend any time to get.

    All of the brands and items that you have listed are ones that I use such coupons for, and they indeed make life easier in so many ways. The big e-commerce sites like Amazon are where I can cash in, saving money and getting what I am looking for fast. I just purchased an HP Deskjet printer for the office at a 74% discount two days ago, and it was delivered today, brans new and works like a charm. 

    I did enjoy looking through your list as there are some areas that I do need to upgrade my items that are wearing out, especially in the kitchen area. I love to cook as a hobby, and having the right equipment is a must to make it a fun experience. Things like choppers, blenders, knives, and pots and pans are things I buy a lot of.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Dave, Having the right tools makes all the difference in the quality of your work. A great tool can make a job easier and the results better. I am more than happy to share my favorites… I don’t like to spend on things that aren’t necessary, but I’ve found each of these items to be well worth the investment!!

  11. Jagi says:

    It seems you have everyone covered. I have shared your link to a group of my friends who are also looking to do some school shopping, be it clothes or shoes. My favorites right now are clothing and accessories. Not because I’m into them, but both my daughters love anything fashion. Thanks for the intensive list, I will be going over this later when my girls wake up. 

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks so much for sharing the list of favorite products Jagi!! I hope your friends have a great new school year ahead of them!!

  12. RoDarrick says:

    Hello, Great post and I’m sure that this would serve virtually everybody who will come to this post. There’s no way anyone would visit this post and not see a thing they like. Great listing and I’m glad you put this together to make this much of helpful products just in one post. I have to consider my budget while selecting various things that I need in here and thank you once more.

    • Alyce says:

      Haha, yeah, these favorite items of mine would probably cost a bit if they were all purchased at once, but if you’re just looking to replace or upgrade a few things at a time, these are definitely worth the investment.

  13. Chris says:

    Thanks for sharing this! You really compiled a great list of essential items that has something for everyone. I will definitely bookmark this page and refer to it before I need to make a purchase, especially for the home, kitchen and office. What really caught my eye was the wireless remote control for electrical outlets. This will be great, especially since my kids are always leaving the lights on! Thanks again!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Chris, Those outlet remotes are such a simple idea, but they make my life at home so much easier. We have them in almost every room!!

  14. Paula says:

    Wow. I think you have it all here. 🙂 I’m especially interested in Coach brand. It’s so expensive without a discount. I used to use the engineering paper to make house plans growing up. Great way for kids to stay occupied for hours. There are some great deals here. Thanks for sharing. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Paula, You are so right about the engineering paper — the kids totally love it. I am surprised at how easy it is to take notes, drawings, and sketch out ideas on it’s petty green tint, and then stash it in a 3-ring binder for future reference!!

  15. Anusuya says:

    Hi Alyce,

    I appreciate your patience and effort to compile this list of useful and high quality product and all-in-one place makes it easier to find. I do’t know several of them but now I do.

    I like to buy a pair of good socks for my morning walk and keep this list handy for my family if they need something. 

    A standing work station might be a good addition to the list if I haven’t missed it from your list.

    Thank you for this fully comprehensive list and making every ones life easier.

    • Alyce says:

      The Thorlo socks are fantastic – they are both extremely comfortable and they are built to last. It’s hard to beat that combination!!

  16. Abayomi says:

    Excellent write-up, your article is educative and informative, all the products you mentioned are essential at home, office, and the drugs for the body system to get better. Do all these products mentioned have a reward program? I love using a mouse, and I think the wireless mouse will be right for me. I appreciate your effort for sharing this.

    • Alyce says:

      Not all of these products include a reward program… it will just depend on where you purchase them. I have an Amazon store credit card, so I do get cash back credited to my bill each month, but your mileage may vary depending on your own situation and preference of store. 

      The products are recommended because even without a reward, the quality and efficacy make them worth a purchase.

  17. Ibrahim says:

    This list is HUGE!  I have to admit that I didn’t recognize a bunch of these brands, but the lazy boy one definitely caught my attention.  I love lazy-boy furniture and would love to use a rewards program to affordably redesign my living room. 

    On another note, I already have amazon prime and I can tell you all, it is definitely worth it!  If you bought it for the the free shipping, you have bunch of free movies/ TV shows to watch, if you bought it for the TV and movies, you still have free shipping!  It’s a win win!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Ibrahim, I started with Amazon Prime for the free shipping too. I was very pleasantly surprised when they added entertainment! I’m not sure if you know this as well, but they also have a lot of music that you can stream with Prime too! 

      It’s great when you buy a service and they keep surprising you by making improvements!!

  18. Henderson says:

    I doubt if anyone would come across this post without seeing something that they’ll need. Thank you so much for this list. I’m glad that you can put together a comprehensive list of very valuable items. I’ll gave to go back and check for things that I really need and see my budget as well. My friends have to see this too.

    • Alyce says:

      I feel like this list includes things that can make about everyone’s life a bit easier. Thanks for sharing with your friends!

  19. Charles says:

    Wow a seat Gap filler. What a Nifty idea. The other ones I’m most interested in are the silent Mouse, the washers and dryers, and the heated foot warmer thing. Your last link about wealthy affiliate is one that I agree with. I am on my first month of the premium membership and things are going pretty good. My article came out really well today and I even reread it a few times and Polished it up. I have time so I could start another but I kind of feel like I’d rather wait till tomorrow to start another. But yeah as you can see I’ve gotten a lot of value out of wealthy affiliate had a lot of constructive things to do and I think my websites might even be making money soon. Anyway I always appreciate your posts when they come up and look forward to reading more.

    • Alyce says:

      I agree, there are some really clever products on the list! The premium Wealthy Affiliate has been great… I originally signed up because I was working on a single site, but soon realized that I could also get a lot of value out of all the extras they include as well. I’ve now built sites for my music projects, consulting, family businesses, and personal interests. It’s been a great investment and I’m happy to hear that you are impressed as well!

  20. Nuttanee says:

    I am addicted to your list! I have to go back and start budgeting. However, thank you so much for sharing these links. I am always on the lookout for new clothes and accessories because of my job and Coach is my favorite. I also want to join Amazon Prime. At first I didn’t want to join because I want to spend less but I ended up spending more because I didn’t join the Prime, the story of my life. Thanks again 🙂

    • Alyce says:

      Amaazon Prime is a great deal if you do a fair amount of online shopping. The free trial offer should help you figure out whether or not it’s a good deal for you personally!

  21. Wendy Rahilly says:

    Wow! That’s quite the comprehensive list of valuable products. I appreciate you taking the time to list them. Makes it easier for me to find what I’m looking for. I’ve already used Amazon Prime. I love their free shipping. And, I love their selection of movies. Now, do these all have their own reward programs? 

    Let me know when you update the list. 🙂

    • Alyce says:

      Some of these do offer their own reward programs, but the items are so invaluable that I recommend them even if there are no bonuses available. Definitely join the newsletter to be informed of future updates!!

  22. crownwole says:

    Due to awesome packaging and branding, some product and services command attention. You like to pick them up because of discount and rewards attached to it when they are not even qualify for special offer. I like that you spread each item that is required or utilized ordinary. It will be an incredible venture for anybody working an office work with Ssh Mouse which would do ponders in any office setting. The information is useful, thanks. 

    • Alyce says:

      Having a quiet mouse for work has been a game changer!! It’s a much more pleasant work environment without having to hear clicking noises all day long! 🙂

  23. MazieD says:

    Thanks for this informative review, there is something for everyone. I am obsessed with the hand bags as I believe a good handbag will enhance any outfit. I have recently purchased the Asic sneaker and they are wonderful and make walking enjoyable.

    I like that you have covered every product area which makes it easy for a busy individual to do a one stop shopping and I sure will be checking out some of these too. Thank you.

    • Alyce says:

      A great handbag is an investment. They are both functional and fun, and can make all the difference in how an outfit is put together!

  24. Feochadan says:

    What an interesting and diverse set of products.  There seems to be something for everyone here.  A little bit of everything.

    I was just wondering, what are the rewards programs offered for the products listed?

    One issue I noticed is that skimlinks is no longer available.  Too bad since I was rather interested in that one.

    Thank you for this interesting listing of miscellaneous products.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi there, SkimLinks is definitely still available… I’d recommend that you try the link again as all appears to be working on this end. 

      As most of the items on the page are for products (not stores), the rewards you receive will depend on where you choose to purchase them. I am not aware of any manufacturers who currently offer any rewards for the purchase of these products. That said, I still use these products daily and highly recommend them!

  25. SeunJeremiah says:

    I must say you have done a good job making this list on this article looks,  it  has got list of almost everything I will need for my home and online services as well,  this way you get to make it easier for me to quickly make a choice and don’t get confused, I love the idea of wireless switch controls I think I’ll start my purchase from here. Thanks alot 

    • Alyce says:

      Fantastic!! If you are like me, you probably have a long list of items that need to be powered up in the morning to start the workday. Having them all on a remote switch saves so much time!

  26. Garry says:

    So many products to choose from. I must agree about Samsung, I have just bought a Samsung washing machine, and it is full of features. I would say it’s probably the best washing machine I have ever owned. I will bookmark this page to view again at a later date in detail.

    • Alyce says:

      The Samsung appliances in our home have definitely been great investments! I’m glad to hear that you have enjoyed them as well!!

  27. Todd Matthews says:

    Awesome office products; I especially like that Ssh Mouse which would do wonders in any office setting or a library since I tend to do most of my work out of it. The chair would be great, too, especially if we’re sitting for eight to ten hour stretches, which won’t just weaken the lumbar area of your back, but also the hips and abdominals, too. It’d be a great investment for anyone working an office job. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Todd, those have both been excellent purchases for me! I couldn’t imagine a workday without either of them!!

  28. Alenka says:

    Thank you for this exhaustive list of goodies! There’s something for everyone. I’ve bookmarked this article because I’m sure to come back to it to look for my next essential product. Being a musician, I actually own the music stand Manhasset – so glad it got the mention in your article. I love it.

    • Alyce says:

      Those really are the best music stands — we have 2 of them at our house (a standard black one and a bright cherry red one).

  29. Jay says:

    A lot of these would come in handy. I have not even heard about some of the items listed here. I am looking to get some items for both the office and for my home especially the kitchen and I am pretty sure I am going to find something that would really useful for me. 

    Really helpful.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jay, I’m very happy you find this to be beneficial to you. These products are indispensible in my home!

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  30. Gillian says:

    Wow! So much products here to choose from. I like that you cover every products that is needed or used everyday. I would agree with the security system by Ring door bell, it’s what we are using too. Some of the above mentioned are not familiar with me like the brand of glassess and watches, I got curious so I will check them out. 

    The OXO kutchen containers caught my attention. I like to have one on my kutchen. It looks elegant and it’s a good sort of organizer in the kitchen. I will definitely check that out.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Gillian, That ring doorbell is just too cool plus it provides peace of mind when away from the house. I expect you’ll enjoy the other products as well! Thanks for checking them out!

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  31. jpaliskis says:

    Hello, you wrote a lot of information for everyone: women, men, office, etc.  As a coffee lover, I like your description of stainless steel insulated french press — also – a waterproof smartphone case . I love shopping online using Amazon Prime, which saves my time and money.

    Thanks for sharing the tools which make life easier for everyone.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi, these favorite products and services are definitely versatile enough to add value for many different types of people. They have been so awesome for me and my family that I happily recommend them and frequently use this list to come up with gift ideas. The insulated coffee maker is a great purchase (and very affordable) if you love coffee!

      Thanks for visiting the website! 

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  32. Trevor says:

    Wow this is a huge list!  We have very similar tastes it seems I have had a few of your recommended products, in particular, I love the OXO Container I absolutely love.  I’m going to take a look at those DAVA guitar picks now and give them a close look!

    Do you have a standout favorite from this entire list?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Trevor, Actually, all of these items are favorites, but the standouts would have to be the ones that have made me feel better… so those would be:

      – the Herman Miller Aeron chair (eliminated back and neck issues)

      – the Maui Jim and Kaenon polarized sunglass (these help prevent migraines in bright light situations)

      – the Thorlo socks with the Asics sneakers and Teva boots (a god-send when dealing with plantar fasciitis)

      I think you’ll really enjoy the Dava guitar picks. They feel great and come in different sizes so you can find one that’s perfect for the guitar and style of music that you play!

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  33. Stella says:

    This is a wise selection of favorites. There are a lot of critical things that we can’t do without, but it’s definitely better when we source quality choices for the essentials. 

    Due to my busy schedule, I decided to get an efficient washing machine for myself. I managed to get Samsung product and it is still very much in good shape. It’s great that laundry does not take as much of my time with this! I also like for my kitchen to rank among standard modern kitchens. Maybe because am a nutritionist, who knows? 

    You have really done a great job with this collection of favorites. Thanks for sharing.

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks Stella, I’d imagine that nutritionists have great kitchen setups! I’m not the primary cook in our household, but since we share the kitchen, it’s essential that we have a good system in place that helps us all find things when we need them.

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  34. Doug Phillips says:

    Wow! There is a lot of information in this article. I actually had a hard time navigating around because there’s so much information available here. Not that it is a bad thing – it’s great that I can just look at a few things that interest me right at this moment (due to current time constraints). 

    You most certainly have put a lot of time and effort into this and it definitely shows.  

    I like the REWARDS PROGRAM TIPS & TRICKS. Great advice!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Doug, I hope I didn’t overwhelm you with too much…  You’re always welcome to come back to browse the site any time! 🙂 

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  35. AmDetermined says:

    Hi, i admire that most of what we need is what you talk about. for you to put these on your website means the products are worth the cost. plus i like that you concluded with wealthy affiliate (i’ve also got a website from them) and online resources that i can use right away!

  36. Sarah says:

    Thank you for sharing your tools to make life easier! I personally recommend and love the OXO Pop Kitchen Airtight Storage containers….they are so helpful at keeping things in the kitchen organized and sealed tight! Your recommendations are very helpful and informative. I will be following you for more reviews and recommendations like this. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sarah, I really enjoy a lot of kitchen products from OXO, but those Pop Containers are just so cool that I had to share! 

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  37. Trevor M says:

    This is great for everyone to read! Families, men and women! Of course people will be interested and benefit from it especially my wife and many more wife’s who of course have a bigger closet than the husband! your ON THE GO products are great to and make you think of when you would need some of them the most! Thank you will save this for my wife!! 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Trevor, Thanks for sharing with your wife — I hope she enjoys browsing through the list and possibly finds something that would benefit your household!
