These Drain Snakes Will Save You Hundreds in Call Out Feesvia Amazon
Had I known about these plastic drain snakes before our last sink clog, I would have saved literally hundreds of dollars on plumber fees.

They're super easy to use, just shove one down the drain, twist it around, and pull up the grossest slimy mass of hair and gunk - so nasty but so satisfying.

These Slide-Out Baskets Make the Most of Cabinet Spacevia Amazon
I've seen a lot of plastic shelves designed for cabinets, but I'm excited about the possibilities of these Slide-Out Baskets.

This Cutlery Organizer Will Help You Make Optimize Drawer Spacevia Amazon
I have a fairly small kitchen–which includes small drawers. Last year I spent months figuring out ways to organize my kitchen and maximize the space. One of my favorite finds was this cutlery organizer. Its unique design creates more space in your drawer so you can fit more. One Amazon user said, "My drawer was a mess despite having a generic cutlery holder with ample space–it just took up too much room. This tidy little organizer not only fit all my many many cutlery, but it freed up half my drawer space so that I could fit all of my kitchen utensils that I had in a large pot on the kitchen counter. Highly recommend."
