It often happens that really useful things cost very little money.
To make your life more comfortable you don’t have to spend thousands or milions dolars. It often happens that really useful things cost very little money.
Reddit users know about this very well and they decided to share their experiences and talk about the things and devices that brought their lives to a whole new level of comfort:
1. A coffee maker.
This thing broke my wife of her $200(?) monthly Starbucks habit. The unit costs maybe $25 or so.
2. Fitted sheet straps.
They keep cheap sheets from popping up at the corners. So now I can use soft sheets that don’t cost a fortune and my sleep is undisturbed by them popping loose, greatly improving my quality of life.
3. A cookbook.
Not like a fad celebrity book but a real old-school family cookbook. The best one I ever found was at a garage sale and was like 6″ thick ring-binder, full to the brim with yellow pages some with stains. It honestly should have been a family treasure and I got it for $20. Hundreds of family recipes with easy to follow hand-written notes. I’m sad I never met the grandma that this thing once belonged to.
4. A decent light wake up alarm clock.
Completely changed my mornings. Don’t think I could ever go back to using my phone or a simple alarm clock.
5. A whetstone.
I spent 30 seconds watching a YouTube video and gave it a crack. Then I learned it had been bothering me my whole life and I just didn’t know it. Knives are supposed to cut THAT easily?
6. A USB extender that comes in handy for many things.
Then you can just plug it into whatever. Don’t wanna sit at your desk for gaming? USB extender. Now you can sit on the couch and use the coffee table instead of your desk and the TV instead of your monitor.
7. A buckwheat pillow.
I have sleep apnea, and it allows me to get my head into the perfect position and keep it there comfortably. I tried using the standard pillows but could never find one that was comfy. Memory foam got too hot or would compress into a pancake. Getting used to the noise took like a week or so, but after that, pure bliss.
8. Active noise-canceling headphones change your life if you have to fly a lot.
It doesn’t matter if you sit at the wing or not, the amount of noise that gets blocked out is incredible. It drops the background noise by more than half, easily.
9. A hammock.
Bought mine a year ago and I have no idea what I did without it, you can literally post it up anywhere and everywhere, and it will encourage you to go outside a lot more
10. Meat thermometer.
No more cutting open meat to see if it’s done, thus leaking juices.
