After nearly a year, most people are still working from home, and many schools are still conducting their classes virtually. None of us saw it coming. (You know, except for the scientists that tried to warn us years ago, but tomato, tomahto.)
Regardless of whether we should have expected it, absolutely no one was prepared in the slightest for the catastrophic impact of COVID-19. I, for one, was most definitely not prepared for the abrupt worldwide transition into hermit mode. I was still a college student when the pandemic single-handedly took over all our lives. I didn’t even have my own desk! I had a kitchen table that I made do with, but knowing I’d be spending the rest of eternity in my apartment, I realized had to get a desk of my own.
Finding a desk was something of a challenge for me. It had to be affordable, small enough to fit into my shoebox of a bedroom, and match the already already mix-matched furniture presented somewhat of a challenge for me. It had to be affordable, small enough to fit into my shoebox of a bedroom, and match the varied assemblage of furniture I already owned. Surprise, surprise, it was the almighty Amazon that came to my rescue. After days of shopping (online, of course), I ended up buying the French Oak Gray-colored FURINNO Econ Multipurpose Home Office Desk on Amazon for $70.
This desk comes in six different colors. And if you like what you see, the French Oak Gray version is now selling for just $45.
You can tell by the price that this isn’t some high-quality luxurious desk, but it most certainly gets the job done. It is very suitable for teenagers, young adults, and your run-of-the-mill, overworked minimalist. My only major complaint is that it’s not as sturdy as I had wanted, but I knew that before I made the purchase (always read the reviews!). Anyway, I really only notice it when I’m writing. It was also somewhat confusing to put together, or at least that’s what my brother said…
Other than that, this desk has certainly fulfilled its purpose and, honestly, exceeded my expectations. It provides me not only with a nice space to do my work, but also with ample room to put my collection of random objects that would otherwise have been stashed in a closet somewhere.
I do want to note that if you have desktop computers—specifically more than one—unfortunately, this desk is not for you. As you can see from the pictures, the desktop itself is primarily designed for a laptop or small computer. Overall, I think it’s a great desk. I’ve been using it for going on eight months now, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my purchase.

At $9, This Silly Plush Turkey Hat Is A Must-Own
In 2022, Santa hats are out. Silly turkey hats are in.
I was on Amazon looking for things to do over Thanksgiving with relatives (eventually landing on the brand new game Christmas Categories) when I came across this:
My first thought was that it creates the perfect opportunity for someone in the family to recreate the classic Monica turkey head scene from Friends:
Then I realized that there are many ways you can have fun with the turkey hat Thanksgiving. When you play games, you can decide in advance that the loser has to wear the turkey hat. Or perhaps you can start a tradition that whoever carves the turkey each year gets to wear the turkey hat. The possibilities are endless!
No matter how you are spending the holiday this year (with funny turkey hat, or sans funny turkey hat), the We Know Products team wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving!
Keep Comfort Within Arm’s Reach With NAIPO’s New Handheld Massager
If you go on Amazon and search for “handheld massager,” you will find dozens and dozens of clones of the same $100 massage gun. My immediate reaction upon seeing this was that there is no longer any innovation in the massager industry. Instead of actually investing in R&D to come up with more advanced ways to help customers, massager companies seem content to copy one another and compete on price.
One company gives me hope. That company is NAIPO, a well-known massager brand whose stated mission is to help people all over the world “Find Well-being.” NAIPO’s latest handheld massager features a brand new design that provides added value for the user. While it is still a percussion massager, its sleek comfort-grip handle grants access to otherwise inaccessible areas of the body. It also features 5 interchangeable massager heads so that you are able to treat each acupuncture point with the best possible massage.
This attention to detail creates a truly customizable experience. After a workout or just a long day at work, you can choose from 5 different speed levels and 5 different working modes, from gentle relaxation to vigorous, deep-tissue massage. By virtue of the extended front grip, you can give exactly the right type of massage to previously neglected muscles all over your body.
A common complaint about percussion massagers is the noise level that can make it awkward or even impossible to use in public. The new NAIPO handheld massager is different. Unlike its competitors, it provides amazing results with only a single massage head. This has the twin effect of reducing noise levels and making it lighter and therefore less unwieldy, a huge plus especially for older users.
The NAIPO XF-5120 handheld massager will be available for purchase soon, and at $52.99 it is inarguably cheaper than similar products on the market. You get your very own either at NAIPO’s own storefront on naipocare.com or on Walmart.com. Stay tuned for more updates!
