I don’t think anyone can deny that moving is a real pain. Can you believe that more than 60 percent of adults complain that moving is more stressful than getting divorced? The following suggestions can help you relieve your stress when you arrive at your new home.

Storage Ottoman Bench

Are you the type to buy too many clothes to fit into your small closet? No problem! This Double Memory Foam Folding Ottoman provides additional seating and storage space to your bedroom. One of the advantages is it can be folded flat. If you move frequently, it does not take up too much space of your car. The seat is padded with memory foam, which gives you premium comfort. It is very sturdy because it can hold up to 250lbs in weight. It is available in 3 designs: button, line, and swirl. Each style is offered in 2 colors. The button and line benches are available in brown and black. The swirl bench is offered in black and white. The faux leather makes it waterproof and easy to clean. Even if you spill a cup of coffee, you can wipe it off and let it dry.

Lush Décor Night Sky Panel for Living

Blinds are nice but never enough to really keep the light out and darken the room when you need to. What you need is a curtain to block the sun. The design of this Night Sky Window Curtain is unique. The shimmery design adds more shine to the room. Extra privacy and insulation are provided by the lining on the back of the curtain. This curtain is dry clean only because it is made of faux silk with sparkling silver and black sequins. It will be ruined if we put it into the washing machine or dryer. The installation is very simple due to the rod pockets on both the top and bottom. All you need to do is slide the panels onto the curtain rod.

Makeup Table

A makeup table, mirror, and stool are necessities for people who put makeup on every day. This Roundhill Furniture Sanlo White Wooden Vanity, Make Up Table and Stool Set features a three-pane beveled mirror that graces the vanity with its magnificent cresting fashion and hinged panes. You may store as much makeup, jewelry, or other accessories as you want with the 4 drawers. There are 2 side drawers and 2 wide center drawers, which allows you to put the most frequent use accessories in the white center drawers. The stool is thickly upholstered. It is available in 3 colors: white, pink, and silver.

What Comes To Mind? Is My Latest Quarantine Pastime

Earlier this quarantine, I promised to feature suggestions of games to play with the family while stuck in isolation. Last time, I reviewed Trivillennial. Though I promise that will not prove to be the last trivia game in the series, this week I’ll profile a game of a different type. It is called What Comes To Mind?

The well-known game “What Comes To Mind?” most closely resembles is Scattergories. Like Scattergories, the object of the game is to come up with a word or phrase when given a prompt. Unlike Scattergories, instead of aiming to conjure a unique answer, you are rewarded based off how many other players you match. Instead of testing your creativity, “What Comes To Mind?” examines how well you know your competitors. That twist makes things a bit more interesting. Furthermore, eliminates the tension that inevitably arises in Scattergories, when someone lobbies for the acceptability of their undoubtedly unique but hare-brained response.

The one problem I have with What Comes To Mind? is with the format of each question card. Each double-sided card features an image on the front and six questions or statements to be answered on the back. The sixth prompt is always “What comes to mind when you look at the image on the other side of this card?” It is a clever idea, but it fails in implementation. Almost always, everyone just names the contents of the picture: “Ferris wheel,” “butterfly,” “squirrel.” The only possibility for amusement is when a player completely misidentifies a commonplace thing and ends up, for example, writing down “parrot” when the photograph depicts a parakeet.

What Comes To Mind? comes with 75 cards, allowing for many nights of family fun. When our long national nightmare is over and done, it will presumably make for an entertaining party game as well.

It’s Time To Get An Instant Pot

At this point, everybody knows about the Instant Pot. After four or five years of it being the most popular product on Amazon Prime Day, plus the proliferation of dedicated social media fan groups and fawning media profiles, the Instant Pot has exceeded its cult status. We Know Products even featured an article about the Instant Pot a year ago. If you don’t own an Instant Pot by now, it is because you made a conscious decision.

However, it may be time to rethink that decision. With still no end in sight to mandated social distancing, we have to come up with ways to make life less mundane. That means trying out new things, especially when it comes to recipes. There’s no doubt you’ve tired by now of making your pre-quarantine staples. The Instant Pot affords you the opportunity to experiment.

The Instant Pot, famously, is seven kitchen appliances in one. It comes with the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer. To some people, this might seem daunting. With so many options, how is one to know where to start? Now that we are in quarantine, it doesn’t matter as much. You have all the time in the world. If you fail, who cares? Just try another recipe the next day. There certainly is no shortage of Instant Pot recipes available.

The other day, we attempted our first foray into the wide world of Instant Pot by making beef and broccoli. It turned out great! I am already looking forward to the next quarantine creation.

Lew Investigates: How Much Difference Does A Toaster Make?

Are expensive toasters worth it? This is the question raised by Lew of Unbox Therapy after coming across the most expensive toaster on Amazon, a near-$400 model made by Mitsubishi (yes, that Mitsubishi — “Wake up and Toast”).

Can anyone justify paying that much for an appliance that, at the end of the day, does nothing more than make your bread a little browner? Lew and Willy Du conduct the ultimate test, comparing the Mitsubishi toaster with the cheapest version they could find, a $15 toaster made by Proctor Silex.

To make their experiment a little more robust, they tried both toasters out on two types of bread: a generic store brand bread as well as an expensive bakery-fresh bread.

Watch the video below to find out the results. Spoiler: The expensive toaster made superior bread. But for those not looking to splurge, you can increase the quality of your breakfast even with a cheap-o toaster just by buying better bread.
