Kitchen and Home:
- TP-Link Wifi Smart Plug (HS100) for $20.
We use ours to remotely turn off a device often gets left powered on, but many people use theirs to control lamps and lights.
It can be voice-controlled when paired with Amazon Alexa (Amazon Echo).
For a cheap device, ours has performed perfectly since we bought one last year, and has never dropped off the Wifi.
This device is not for everyone, but if you do have plugged-in devices that you want to turn on/off from your smartphone, tablet, or Alexa, this is a hot deal at $20.
- Wall Outlet with 2 USB Ports
Replaces your wall outlet, providing 2 USB charging ports.
Use a skilled electrician to install.
If you want the clean look without anything protruding from the wall, this is a great deal.
In comparison, a
Wall Mount Surge with USB Charging Ports
costs $16 and does not require skill to install.
- Instant Pot DUO80 Programmable Pressure Cooker for $90.
We own an older model of the Instant Pot, and love it!
It makes delicious soup, meat, rice, vegetables, and potatoes in half the time because it uses steam and pressure.
Normally sells for about $130.
- PureSpa Essential Oil Diffuser
Sprays natural oils into the air to improve the aroma of your home.
A huge supply of oils, a
6-pack of Oils
is available for $15.
We call it a "huge supply" because you only need one or two drops of oil per use, and one use lasts for a day.
