Top 4 Time Saving Devices
The Instant Pot! If you told me about an Instant Pot a month ago, I would have no idea what you were talking about. On Black Friday, I was told this was the TOP item to purchase. So, I thought, what the heck, let’s try it out. In short, the Instant Pot is the number 1 selling multi-cooker. It combines 7 kitchen appliances in 1, Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Marker and Warmer. It can prepare dishes up to 70% faster to support your busy lifestyle. I never thought I would love it so much but the fact that I can come home from work and have a full dinner ready in under 30 minutes is incredible.
Next, is the Amazon Echo Dot. Once again, this was an item I wasn’t too sure how much I would like it. However, once it was set up I couldn’t stop asking Alexa anything and everything. Some of my favourite features are the shopping list – “Alexa, add milk to my shopping list.” Now milk is added to a list on my phone which I can easily check while at the store. The Echo Dot can also check the traffic to work in the morning, start a timer while cooking or even tell you a joke. Within the app, there are an endless amount of ‘skills’ that you can set up. These skills will help you save time in the new year – I swear! Plus, did I mention the Echo Dot is under $50 right now?
Lost Keys? Can’t find your phone? Tile can help with that! I can’t even count how many times I run around the house trying to find my keys or even my phone. I end up being late and even worst, all stressed out from the frantic search. The Tile Sport has a 200 ft. range and just with a double tap on the button your phone will begin to ring – even if it’s on silent! You can even find your item on a map!
Another item that I swear I can’t live without anymore is my FitBit. I’m sure everyone knows all about the features of a smartwatch by now. The fitness tracking, sleep tracking, etc but my personal favourite is the text reading. While out shopping or while at work, it’s nice to be able to get that quick blurb of the text without having to search my bag for my phone. Amazon also offers a wide variety of FitBit bands so you can easily change out the look.
