Recycling, short showers, washing full loads of laundry, we try to be as eco-minded as possible in my house. But in living with multiple people and their various daily habits, the one thing we haven’t mastered is turning the lights off when exiting a room.
New! Faster! Smaller! Just released! Shopping for gadgets during the holidays can be thrilling. There are so many fun products being released just in time to fill your stockings, but making choices that your friends and family will love receiving- especially if you’re not the most tech-savvy- can be a bit daunting. That’s why I’m a proud, card-carrying member of the Staples Holiday Council— I’m working with them this holiday season to reduce the stress in holiday shopping and to help people find the perfect gift for everyone on their list (from the tech aisles, of course!)
We may be living in a digital world, but when it comes to special occasions, there’s something to be said for going the old-fashioned route of paper holiday cards. My wedding was pre-Facebook/texting/email but even then it was challenging to get everybody’s addresses together, (a lot of phone calls were necessary… remember those?).

I said goodbye long ago to catalogs on my doorstep, and I’d rather downgrade to an iPhone 3G than navigate one more department store sale section. So, I’ll need a new tactic if I want to stalk my dream designer denim until it’s at a price that my wallet can handle. Discover Shop It To Me, the shopping website my I hoped I’d find before succumbing to the “R-Word” (retail).
One of the most annoying side effects of a digital life is cord clutter. It’s impossible to avoid, as every gadget comes with a brick and a cable, all vying for space in your drawers or on your countertops. There are so many products on the market designed to help you combat cord clutter, but honestly many of them just end up getting tangled in along with the cords, and frankly, I’m not apt to buy products that doesn’t improve on the concept of a twist tie or a baggie.
